Rainy Day Occupations

The skies are grey and dark clouds hang heavily overhead. The rain has returned. Not that I mind, for I have nowhere I need to go. I am busy nursing my family back to health as they are all ill. So far, I have been a champion with no symptoms of illness. May it remain so!
I began working on a cross-stitch project that I've had for several years now. I tend to work on it for a week or so, then put it away for months at a time up to a year. I am working on the fall section now. I would like to finish it this year, but I no better than to hold myself to it.
What are your favorite rainy day occupations?

So sorry about your family's health...I hope they are all better soon and that your imunity is strong!

I've been advised to get a flu shot this year because of the diabetes...something I'm not real keen on...sigh!

I wish I could still cross-stitch but since my eyes have aged it is an obstical...I wear tri-focals...double sigh!!

Enjoy your indoor day!

I am so sorry your family are still ill. I hope you have some tea tree oil - a little dot of it under your nose would do wonders in warding off any airborne illness.

On a rainy day I love to write.

Dear Tracy,

Thanks for "coming by" today! I usually spend rainy days catching up on housework :) .
