1 Light a fire
If you have a fireplace and it’s windy and stormy out it is a very good source of heating the house. I love the smell of the burning wood and I can sit in from of the fireplace quite mesmerized by the way the flames dance around inside the fireplace. Just make sure that you are careful and watch out so that you don’t start a fire somewhere else than inside the fireplace.
2. Go for a walk in the woods
I find it very enjoyable to take a walk in the woods in all seasons. The charm of a walk in the woods in autumn is to see the lovely colours that nature has to offer. See if you can find some nice berries and mushroom (be sure you only pick the non toxic ones) that you can use to make nice food when you come home. If the rain is not pouring, the temperature is usually very nice for going walking as it’s not too hot or too cold!
3 Light candles, curl up on the couch with a nice cup of tea
When the weather outside is mostly stormy and very wet. What is better than to curl up on the couch with a blanket, a good book and a nice cup of tea? In Norway we have an extreme fondness of candles and I find it very cosy to light a few when the storm is raging outside.
