Deb had a very simple request for this week’s Fun Monday theme: "Show your favorite place to relax. It can be a chair, corner, ledge, or limb. :)".
Well, seeing as I just returned from a WEEK of relaxation at my favorite place in the universe, I have a few pictures ready to share; had I known the theme BEFORE I left, I would’ve taken them a bit differently, but these will do just fine.
Because it’s well established that I love the beach, I probably don’t need to say it again. But I don’t mind sayin’ it again, because, well, it’s also established I’m rather (ahem) talkative, and although that doesn’t necessarily mean redundant, well, sayin’ that I love the beach is one of the "excused absences" for redundancy :).
Time to let the pictures speak…gosh, I hear them loudly :).
My FAVORITE spot for chillin’…
…in part because of the next two views, depending on which way I’m facing. It’s a wonder I got through 2 1/2 books with these naturally spectacular distractions:
Of course, there are other wonderful spots to relax…this is where I’d read in the mornings while Tad was getting a cup of coffee and reading the paper here. It’s also where I was when my new BFF, Becky invited me to go alligator tipping with her. In our pajamas. With unbrushed teeth.
Now that we’re home, I figured I’d snap a few of my favorite spots for chillin’ here…
This is in our playroom and it’s a great spot for watching movies…
And this last shot is in our room…this loveseat has been a GREAT addition. It’s one of Tad’s favorite spots to watch TV…and one of my favorite blogging spots (especially when I need to hide from the workers who’ve recently taken over my house the last few months…except some of those times were them renovating our bathroom, so I didn’t hide out here, then. Huh?)
Please be sure to visit Deb’s Melon Patch for links to everybody else’s chillin’ spots, but before you go pretty please with brown-sugar-tiramisu-chocolate-cake-with-chocolate-icing- creme-brulee-and-what-ever-else-tickles-your-sweet-tooth, pop over here and vote for yours truly and a few other Fun Monday players for Kailani’s 2007 Bloggy Hoss Awards 🙂 (and a thousand "thank yous" to those of you who already have!).

heh,heh… you got your toes in that favorite place.
I love the beach, too. It’s just so far to drive!
Pamela…I’ve gotta another “toe” pic coming up in the next few days…stay tuned :).
I am not sure that an alligator-infested paradise is the place for me to relax especially if the alligators practice bad dental hygiene.
I am kidding Robin your relaxation spots are grand. I especially like the striped chair/loveseat in the last picture.
jealous, jealous, jealous!!
We finally filled up the wading pool and blew up the inflatable lizard. I sat in a crummy lawn chair and dangled my feet.
Just didn’t seem as nice as your wonderful relazation spot(s).
I like ALL your relaxing spots! But the beach is the best…
I’m a beach lover too but can’t get there often enough. You have some good relaxing zones and I have already voted for you !!
Did you know you can bring the beach home with you? The last time we went, we dumped our suitcases and I truly believe we brought home half of the beach.
Have I mentioned that I keep trying to sneak another vote in, but I always get caught.
Molly, don’t knock ’em til you’ve tried ’em ;).
Min, I haven’t read the Mamas, but you really need a picture of that if it’s true :).
Tiggerlane, I couldn’t agree more :).
Thanks, Chris…Really…truly, I would live there if I could **s i g h**.
I got so caught up in your blog that I passed right by this comment section by about 8 or 9 pages. Comfy spots you have there and tip-toeing around a golf course hunting alligators has to be a great vacation story.
Great spots. This really has been a good topic – everyones posts were so interesting. I’m not sure that tipping alligators sounds very relaxing to me though?
I love the big round ottoman, and the oversized chair.
BTW, that bumper sticker you left at my place is brilliant!! It’s going to be my new tag-line
PS, Sorry about the WV back at my place, I took it off and got flooded with spam, so I had to put it back Grrrrr.
Robinella, hmmm….well I’m glad to have snagged ya for a little while :).
T.O.B., try it, you might like it :).
WT, I thought you might likey 😉 (and yeah…I l o a t h e WV when I run up against it….:/).
I wish I could say our upcoming vacation is going to be relaxing – but I think I’m going to be exhausted when we come home.
I love your playroom couch. That’s the sort of thing we need for our family room. The old floral sofa looks hideous in that room and it is none too comfortable. I like the color on the wall in that room (yours), too.
Oh my! I really like that love seat!
Wonderful playroom! I love it! It’s a little different from ours, LOL. Where are all the trucks and dinosaurs?
I wish I was relaxing on that beach.
Another great post! 🙂 I wish I lived closer to a beach. Looks very relaxing! LOL Love your toe pic too.
Man, I’d love to be on the beach right about now.
(can I nap on your couch please?)
