One evening....

I thought I would do a post just about an evening in my here is a piece of yesterday evening...

I first found the kitten sound asleep nestled into Mason...
 While making dinner my 6 yr old walked into the kitchen, hopped up on a chair, and asked what was for dinner.  I told him "sloppy joes".  He looked at the plate of onions, bell peppers, and celery that I was chopping, and didn't say anything for a bit.  Then he announced... "I don't like those things but I do really like sloppy joes. I guess that is a good way to get me to eat those things, isn't it?" Yes, yes it is :)
 While I was cooking I glanced over at the doorway to the gameroom (which was originally the dining room and has been a playroom, craftroom, and bedroom). We turned it into the game room months ago because I was tired of the gaming equipment and cords and mess in the family room. Then about a month or so ago I moved all the book shelves in there and put all the books in the house in that room too.  It has slowly transformed into a den/mancave/gameroom.  I didn't much care for it at first. But after cleaning it yesterday and turning on a table lamp in the afternoon(it gets dark here early now) the room is growing on me.  It's actually kind of inviting and cozy.  It doesn't look like a magazine room, but more of a room that has grown over time.
 The next tow pictures are dark because I didn't turn on the overhead light and was trying to capture the cozy feel of the lamp.
 Mason had to get in and pose...
 And looking the other direction while at the stove... I took down my Wandering Jew plant that was in the enamel bucket above the sink because the thing kept growing so fast that its tendrils attacked us while we were at the sink!  I replaced it with one of my Christmas cacti(which are all starting to bloom).  I also cleaned off the window sill in preparation for Christmas decor.
 And when hubby walked in the door from work, he had a pretty rose and card for me :) Thank you my love!

Have a lovely day,



  1. I like the Media room! Nice way to keep it all together.

    Carmen and the Primcats

  2. You have made a lovely home. Uh oh, mom's busted! LOL... all is good though since he still eats your sloppy joes :)
    Now that's the perfect ending to the day with a rose from your hubby.

  3. Very cozy indeed! I am in love with large bookcases - so classy and smart to me! Then there is the rose and card - so very very sweet.

  4. Your room looks very cozy and inviting..Also I really like the shelf across your kitchen window..As I was typing this I glanced at my window and a light bulb went off...HaHa...I think I have a project for this weekend..Have a great day..

  5. Shredded cheese on sloppy joes helps the non-fans warm up to it too! Love lamplight in a room and love your kitchen. It's like magic when the Christmas cactus blooms (cute lil guy and sleepy kitty!) ~*~Lisa

  6. Pictures of your home always look so warm and cozy. I prefer that over magazine stark and rigid anyday.

    Your kitten is adorable and I am not a cat person at all:)

  7. So glad that I got a glimpse into your home, it looks so warm and cozy. Anything to get a child to eat "the heathy stuff" works for me. I love the decor in your home, it looks country.
    I hope you have a great weekend!
