A Rainy Afternoon

Written by Selene Candace

Rainy Sundays offer the perfect opportunity to slow down, unwind, and indulge in activities that bring comfort and joy. As the pitter-patter of raindrops creates a soothing ambiance, it’s time to embark on a cozy afternoon and make the most of a leisurely day indoors. Join me as I delve into the activities I engaged in on a recent rainy Sunday, highlighting the beauty of embracing relaxation, and self-care.

As the rain tapped gently against my window, I savored the luxury of sleeping in, which is a RARE event for me. I have an unusual sleep schedule typically, due to the nature of this work, but that Sunday was something special. My body and mind allowed for me to sleep in 2 hours past my usual wake up time, and it was serene. With no rush to begin the day, I relished the peace and tranquility that comes with the sound of rainfall. Wrapping myself in a warm blanket, I brewed a cup of coffee and curled up beside my puppy to watch the rainfall outside. 

A rainy Sunday is the perfect occasion to explore culinary creativity in the kitchen. With an array of fresh (and not lol) ingredients at hand, I embarked on a culinary adventure. I whipped up a batch of homemade protein balls, the perfect afternoon snack (get the recipe here).The joy of baking nourished both my body and soul.

I then transformed my bedroom into a cozy sanctuary by lighting scented candles, snuggling further into a soft blanket, and continuing to cuddle with my puppy. With my water bottle by my side, I found solace in the quiet moments, appreciating the beauty of self-reflection.

Rainy Sundays invite us to embrace the simple pleasures of comfort and self-care. And that’s exactly what I did. It was just what I needed, and I found joy and fulfillment in the tranquil ambiance of a rainy day. Simple, serene, slow and connected.
