Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday at Home


For me not much beats a good Sunday afternoon spent in my own home.

How delicious is it to find a good book, an afghan, and snuggle down in your own comfy spot???

You can watch something on the telly (thank you Brits for THAT expression), or read, or nap.

On Mother's Day I believe I will indulge in a nap.

Someone who took this photo was not smart enough to get her toes out of the scene.

Just a few words about my "scene."

We moved in here with all the bits and pieces of furniture which we've accumulated over our lives together. I didn't even buy new curtains - - - but made do with what we brought from our last home. While I LOVED those lace curtains on the cheery yellow wall in their FORMER life, I wasn't so crazy about them on a white wall - - - so I threw on the "scarf" for color.

Hmmmm, still not my favorite look - - - BUT I saved my "pennies" for purchasing some new old antiques instead.

And, since we are renting this little duplex, the foot traffic marks on the light carpet were worrying me to death - - - so I practically recarpeted with inexpensive runners and rugs.

I'm sure it will be a trend setter, y'all!!


Another cozy spot for a lazy Sunday afternoon is my Football Cave down in the basement.

Lately Fisherhubby has "pushed me out" of MY space and turned it into his guitar playing and fishing show watching studio.

Ah, but when football season returns, I shall run him out.

Now, I wish a very Happy Mother's Day to you all. May you have time today to snuggle down and get cozy in YOUR favorite spot in YOUR home.

Also, please hurry over to Unknown Mami's place to see what's cookin' in OTHER cities today.

Hehe you are funny Keetha, nice toes :)

Homey and comfy is your home. Happy Mother's Day.

You're so right, nothing beats a nice day at home when you can even take a nap if you feel so inclined!

I love the way you've decorated your home, toes & all. However, I think the real Keetha is illustrated in the football cave!

Wayne W Smith said...

Looks great! You have a real eye.

Tara R. said...

Your home is lovely. I'm envious of your football cave.
Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Unknown said...

Oh to have a football cave - somewhere for the football liking folk to spend time, or for me to run to, to avoid the football liking folk!
Happy Mothers Day.

Diane said...

What a pretty home you have, I think I could sit comfortably with a cup of tea in your leather sofa with the sunshine filling the room! Happy Mother's Day to you my friend. Diane

Unknown said...

Your home is warm and inviting just like you! Love the color accent and the antiques. Have a beautiful Mother's Day, hope you get that nap.

Raymonde said...

What a lovely comfortable abode, home is where the heart is...

Have a great day Keetha, hope you enjoyed your nap. xxx

Unknown said...

Nice toes, Keetha. My toes are a glitzy pink today, and of course, it's sandal weather in New Orleans. Enjoy your cozy Sunday.

Theresa said...

I am snuggled in right now, watching the Braves play ball on the telly:) My Niece is dropping by for a visit, I went to Church this morning and visited with my Daughter and her family! It has been a great Mother's Day, hope you enjoy yours too! HUGS!

Unknown said...

Happy Mother's day! I didn't get to sit until after church this evening but it's been a wonderful day just the same! I love your pedicure!

qandlequeen said...

I love your furniture! Definitely agree having a day to snuggle down and do nothing is highly prized. Enjoy your day!

Lisa said...

Nice toes! :)

Your so right there is nothing better then a blanket and a good book.

Love your place and all those runners.

Looks like we share a love of the crimson. I call it my Red Period The last incarnation was my Blue Period. Wonder what will be next?

Ann in the UP said...

It looks as cozy as ever at your house, but we spent this beautiful afternoon either talking to kids on the phone or sitting out on the deck visiting and bird watching. The Girl and I were escaping the golf tournament and enjoying the weather.

Looks comfy and bright - absolutely perfect for an escape with a good book. Love the river photo blog header.

No place like home, I agree!
Your toes tell me that it's warm, no need for socks, I envy you!
ps. I know the 'correct' word for 'raisin' but the challenge was word 'dry' - I like to play with words... :)

Alyx said...

Haha, I love the football cave. I'm with you - kick the hubby out the second it's football time again!! said...

Trust you had a very relaxing Mother's Day. Here's to the start of new week.!

StarTraci said...

I love a Sunday afternoon with a blanket around my feet and a good read in my hand.


Claudya Martinez said...

I hope it was a very relaxing Mother's Day. I am a real homebody so I love hangin' at home.

Holly said...

That just looks so cozy and like such a great place to snuggle down, nap and get some "me" time. Glad you had a peaceful Mothers Day!

Jenny said...

I like your red accents! It looks like a cozy spot to curl up and admire your pretty toes!
