When my daughter was young, she was assigned a paper to write about me.  She brought it home and I could tell by the look on her face that she was so proud!  It said nice things . . and one sentence said, "My Mother is homely."  I cleared my throat and asked, "you think I'm homely"?  Nodding her head 'yes', she went on to say, "you like to stay home a lot".  

THAT'S HOMEY, NOT HOMELY!!!  That word is actually used to describe a room or where a person lives that is comfy and cozy.  Heavy sigh.
