I haven't played actual ball with her in a week (like outside in a field) I still have tooken her for walks and played frisbee with her, I don't want her to get obsessed with that though.

I have been doing obedience with her with no treats, no toys. Just verbal praise and hand pats etc. Then afterwards just 10 minutes of ball in the house. I have been trying to teach her enough. But I am not sure if I am doing it right. I will play with her and then tell her enough. I give her a few minutes to stop bothering me, if she doesn't I put it away and tell her to leave it and then she goes and lays down. When she leaves me alone and goes and plays by herself, I tell her good after a few minutes and throw it once or twice then put it away.

Am I teaching this right? or should I be doing it differently?

I would use a "that'll do" command, you could use "enough". The ball is in your hand, you say "enough" in a nice tone of voice, then put the ball away. Done. This way, she isn't getting anxious about when you will next throw the ball. She'll learn that when you say "enough", the party is over.
