A Winter's Day in Auckland

A bookstore...

A comfy chair...

A few delicious treats....

Coffee with a friend or two....

A walk along the beach...

Beautiful creations....

A perfect winter's day...

PS..as always,
I love hearing from you,
thank you for your comments,
there is a little one in there for you too!

Auckland, New Zealand


  1. Gorgeous! Makes me want to go even more!

  2. How wonderful to be surrounded by books. I hardly read much anymore as slowly but surely the internet has taken over my life.. sadly, I suppose. But I enjoy flipping the pages of a book and seeing what pops out at me.
    And that chairs look so comfy too.
    Have a great weekend!

    Love the beach pictures too.

  10. Looks like you're having a wonderful time Jeanne. And that looks like my kind of bookstore!

  11. Once again I must tell you how much I enjoy your blog and look forward to it every day. It (and you) seem so real, and I imagine spending time with you. As it is, I glimpse your world which you present so beautifully.

  12. Love your photos, and that chair looks very comfy.

    And of course photos of Auckland, I know I'm biased, but I sure do live in a beautiful city

  13. Dear Jeanne, it is so refreshing to see (and not just to think) that there is not only one way to look at things/events/the world: the simple fact that you have winter now - and we in Europe are sitting languidly in a heat wave - brings everything into perspective. Life is beautiful and so full of wonders - as your gorgeous pictures - that I am just full of gratitude! Britta

  14. Just perfect and beautiful, Jeanne. It sounds as if you are having the most wonderful time.
    Have the time of your life and enjoy every minute. XXXX

  15. Beautiful pictures...NZ looks so wonderful. And coffee and treats are always high on my list of priorities! x

  16. Beautiful Jeanne - makes me feel like I'm right there with you....hope you had a wonderful weekend x

  17. Winter in July! What a great idea!! Wish I could go down under...I hear it's awesome...your pictures show it.

  18. You have described a perfect day for me and my girls.
    Glad you had such a good trip.


  19. Bonjour Jeanne,
    The comfy chair surrounded by all those books looks so inviting! ALl your images are wonderfl - enjoy your perfect winter's day my friend!

  20. You're playing my tune, Jeanne. This all looks just blissful. Hope you're having a great time. Meredy xo.

  21. What gorgeous images Jeanne. I so hope you're having an amazing trip, and the mixed feelings are not so mixed anymore. Amanda

  22. Thank you all for your very kind comments and well wishes. They truly make my day. I haven't had a chance to use my camera since that day which makes the post extra special to me. I will enjoy looking back on it. Days are filled with friends and more friends and a visit to our house :(.. at this point I think of the English phrase Keep Calm and Carry On :)

    I am missing reading everyone's blogs, I am going to take a day next week and just sit and relax and read all your lovely inspirations...look forward to it!!
