When an atmospheric river flows overhead and drenches everything below, indoor activities are required.
It's Friday. The latest overhead river has been with us for two days now. Our real rivers are overflowing again, but we are fortunate to not live near one.
Yesterday I occupied myself with my 1.25 hour physical therapy routine, that I do three times a week. Then I rode my stationary bike out in the garage for 45 minutes. That earned me my usual hour long lunch break and newspaper reading time. In the afternoon I worked on my latest sewing project.My sewing machine is set up in our home office. I have a little ironing board right next to the machine for pressing seams as I sew. My cutting board is on the bed in the bedroom next door.
I am happy to still have a bit of brightness out of my upstairs window.
I am still playing around with quilt squares, challenging myself to try something more complicated. I found some patterns online with tutorials that are teaching me some tricks. Of course I am still not all that skilled at precision cutting and seam sewing, but I do love selecting colors and seeing the patterns come together.
I finished this one today. The one below was just supposed to be for practice since it's the same pattern, but I'll keep it. Tomorrow I'll look for a new a new pattern. I like the star shapes.
Right now I need to go do some time on the stationary bike. So far I'll I've done today is go out to breakfast, do the grocery shopping, have my lunch hour, and do a bit of sewing.
I need to do some moving.
Meanwhile the atmospheric river flows on.
