Last night, the TV took over my time. I sat around, watching TV and eating. I think I put on a few pounds last night. So, this evening, when I got home from work, the first thing I did was to plant some alyssum mix in a planter box. I then decided that the TV must go.
I’ve been having issues with rodents eating everything outside; not only my veggie garden, but my car too!!! So, I needed a sunny place indoors for some plants. Then it struck me, the TV was occupying the ideal plant spot! I disconnected the TV and put it in the corner(punishing it!), cleaned the top of the cabinet and placed my plants under the window. Now, I have a variety of plants to look at and I can see outside better. (Cleaning the windows is a must this weekend.) It already feels calmer in here, plus, I am going to have more home grown tomatoes this year!
The irony of this is that the Deadliest Catch is on in five minutes. Its a new episode so I must watch it. I’ll have to reconnect the TV, but I will leave it in the corner and disconnect before I go to bed. At least now I am forcing myself to only watch the shows I like and moderate TV time.
