At this point, our immediate area is in no danger of flooding damage (although there are warnings out for points not far from us), and for that we're thankful.
Of course, now I'm wondering if my as-of-yet unsprouted seeds in the garden will rot in the cool, saturated soil. Beans and corn are my main concern. I guess it was good that I didn't get my squash and pumpkins in before this soggy weather hit, huh?
But there's more than one advantage to this weather. For one thing, it provides a good chance to catch up (maybe even get ahead?) on inside chores. That is if I can stay motivated and moving (let alone awake) because when the rain is coming down and the fog is so thick I can't see farther than 20 feet outside of any window, my energy level seems
Not that there isn't plenty to do. It's been ages (or seems that way) since I've spent any amount of time in my quilt room. Besides actually quilting in there (oh, yeah, I remember doing that!), it's also where I repair clothing, do alterations and mending so the table with the two sewing machines on it is stacked with projects along those lines.
I finally pulled all of my husband's flannel and wool shirts out of his closet and washed them. (Wanna bet it will turn really, really cold now and he'll be looking for a couple to wear? Heck, he'd probably like a flannel shirt to put on right now in this gray, damp period.) Anyway, I want to press all of them before putting them in the out-of-season clothes storage area for the summer. That pressing matter (hahahahaha!) will keep me out of mischief for a while.
Our little tourist town is packed to the gills with vacationers not particularly happy with the current weather conditions. I certainly can't blame them. But there's no lack of things I can choose to do until this weather changes and I can get back outside again. I just have to get off my rusty-duster and dive into some of the projects.
