The TV is always on if I'm up. When there is something worth watching, like yesterday's Universe marathon on the History channel, then I crochet. My afghan is now long enough to keep my knees warm. Every time I get up to do something in the kitchen, like making a cup of instant coffee, I do something else like clean or put away clean dishes, while the microwave is going. Just going to the bathroom, I pick up and put away things, make the bed, close closet doors.
I alternate between sitting in the recliner and at the desk. At the desk I'm on the computer, catching up with DC and watching TV. In the recliner, watching TV, crocheting, working Sudoku puzzles or reading.
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
