My 6 Day Computer Break!

I love my blog, I love my computer, and I love designing my graphics. But I also love life! This past weekend and the first 4 days of this week, I took a computer break. Ok, I confess, I checked emails and did a little peeking here and there but I probably only spend 15 minutes a day on the computer. Last night I wasn't feeling well so I layed in bed and watched TV from the time I came home from work til bedtime. And I must say, I felt much better this morning!

So what does one do when they take a computer break? Here's what I did:

 I spent time with my incredibly awesome husband and my furry children. Oh how I love them!

 I took totally stupid and silly pictures.

 I organized my craft closet and of course made a couple trips to JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. I see a future project in orange and yellow?

Enjoyed the flowers in my garden. My husband does about all the gardening though. I tend to kill everything.

Baked some spiced pretzels using my sister-in-laws top secret recipe.

Caught up on some reading while enjoying some freshly brewed iced tea with fresh lemon. Does that drink look super refreshing or what?

Oh yah...And I did LOTS of this!

So what do you do when you take a computer break?


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful time on your computer break, enjoying all the sweet things in life!! Your furry children are adorable, and your flowers are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I don't think I could ever do that! I'm about to go out of town for a day and a half, and I'm all stressed out about leaving my Etsy-baby unattended.

    I guess I should relax, huh?

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful computer break!

    When I take a computer break, I tend to read or make my husband watch chick flicks with me. I also spend time doodling and painting with my three year old.

    Cheers to mental breaks! :)

  5. Love it. I wanna come swim! =P. I read when I'm on a computer break(though those rarely happen, lol). And those pictures you took with the smoke look AWESOME by the way. =)

  6. We all need to follow your example. What a great computer break. Love your pictures especially the siily, smokey ones. I would love to know how you placed the copyright on your photos.

  7. Sounds like you had a great week! I love your animals. :) I really should take a computer break too.

  8. Good for you. I need to do the same thing. As much as I love my blog and my computer I just have not felt like sitting in front of it lately. Glad you enjoyed yourself during your break. I also do the silly pictures but I like yours

  9. I haven't taken a computer break since I started my Etsy shop and my blog... hmm, what would I do with all that extra time?!

  10. My house would be so much cleaner if I took a computer break. Starting tomorrow for sure...

  11. The only time I had a computer break was when my computer screen busted (thanks to the block thrown by my 2 year old). I HATED every minute until I had my new computer back. I think that it awesome that you were able to take a break and have fun. I bet those spiced pretzels are tasty.


I LOVE to read your comments!
