Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot: Nap Time!





























I haven't done Scalzi's Monday photo shoot in a while, but I couldn't resist this week's topic: Nap Time. Scalzi's instructions: Show off your favorite place to nap, that's not your bed. Couches, hammocks, recliners -- let's see where you doze in repose. If you want to play, click on the link above.

Here's where I doze in repose. I bought this chaise a couple of years ago, and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's incredibly comfortable, and it's made this corner of my bedroom, formerly rather stark, absolutely the most relaxed and cozy place that I know. Note the basket containing diary and magazines on the floor beside it, evidence that I regularly spend time curled up here. And I'm not the only one; others who have been known to enjoy spending some quality time here include my female bengal, Mia (who thinks she owns it) as well as various adult children (who shall go unnamed) but who've found comfort in curling up here beneath a quilt or a throw, and talking into the night with me from time to time, while I repose on my mile-high, 4 poster bed (on which I stood to take this pic).

Mmmm, looks comfy! I'm planning to totally redecorate my bedroom this summer and one of the main new features will be a similar spot for me. Can't wait!!

I had to repost my comment..blew the link the first time...

Anyway, when I first saw the title of the Photo Shoot, I thought I had inadvertently carried out the assignment with yesterday's post at "Coming to Terms..." But my post was of an actual nap, not a place to nap...

Why, Miss Judi, I believe that chaise is big enough for two.
