Last night I took off from the online world. I turned the computer off around 2 pm and left it off. I took a break. For the most part I watched movies that were on HBO and Cinimax, we had those channels free for a few days, most of them silly comedies that made me laugh, "dinner for schmucks" was one of the best stupid movies I have seen in a while, I did laugh a lot. Earlier in the day I cleaned off the deck, its where I do a lot of re-potting plants and I hang out. I also put a wire shelf out there from the greenhouse, I took all my vegetable plants outside it to harden them off so I can plant them in a week or so in full sun, in the field. I took my house plants outside, I don`t have many anymore. Seems I have lost my love for them, at the moment, usually I would have a couple dozen more made by rooting cuttings, this year I did not do a single cutting. Maybe I have grown out of that part of life, it does happen. But here I am back and good as new. How is your day going?

We understand, Andria. Sometimes it is nice to have a cozy day and not thinking of anything jsut be back to reality. My day is about to end as I need to sleep in a while. But I had a busy day today. Take care always.

I have tomatoes planted in the flower bed, but these are the new ones. I plant in stages to always have food growing.

Sometimes we need a break. I know when my PC is off it seems I have left the world outside my door. Just catching up on stuff on my PC today. Hope you have a great rest of your day as mine is at an end.

Taking a break from the online world is always a good idea. Maybe we should all do this a bit more often @andriaperry

It's good to resist temptation and take time off being online.

Its always to take a break when you can and just be yourself. Sometimes I even put my phone on airplane mode and just be myself

You may be off of houseplants due to being so busy. I do not have just the right space anymore, so mine suffer in the winter. You were busy, you needed the time off.

I'm glad you're having better weather now. It is colder at nights here and next time I change the bed I'll be putting on the flannelette sheets.
