A Cozy Nook and a Happy Weekend!

This is suppose to be a post of another colour and topic 
but this is all I can manage for the moment.
My days seem to be filled with form after form for our 
impending move to Vietnam mid-year.
More on that later....

For now, I would like to wish all my readers 
and especially those of you who are new to the fold
a very comfortable and cozy weekend, 
doing something you love.

For me...it would be head first into this nook... 
into pillow camouflage mode..
not a sound but the rustle of a page or two. 
My mission... not to let anyone find me, 
at least for an hour or two.

Hope you have an absolutely wonderful weekend!!
Jeanne xx

  1. does look very inviting !
    I can sympathize with this feeling too
    hopefully you get a little bit of what you would love to do this weekend
    vietnam sounds very exciting though !!

  2. A sweet wish. In my case, they would find me, but they generally will allow me a half hour in my cozy corner.

  3. You too, Jeanne! Love that image and the idea of hiding away and reading!
    Sunday xx

  4. I'm working on my very own nook at the moment...though not as wintery as this gorgeous one! Good luck with all the administration. That must be the worst part about moving.

  5. What a great looking corner, I could manage a few hours there undisturbed.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Thank you and I hope you get a cozy corner away from the forms! Happy weekend to you.

  7. Jeanne,

    This nook looks perfect for a long read and a cup of tea. I do hope that you manage to find 10 minutes away from your forms if only to revive yourself.

    I am sorry to have been missing from your blog this week, I have been sick and in bed.

    Happy New Year my friend! Happy Weekend!

  8. Precisely my plans for the weekend. A trip to the market in the morning for the ingredients for boeuf bourguignon, then home to books and fireplace.

  9. All I can do from here is wish you the best of luck! The love of family and animals!

    You have great courage!

    Wishing you the best!


  10. Oh, Jeanne. I'd give anything for a nook. Or a book. Alone. No pixies. *Sigh*. Enjoy! J x

  11. Sounds like a great plan. I am writing this from under my duvet and 11.43am on a windy Saturday morning. BEST place to be!
    Di :-)

  12. I am right there with you! That nook is the place to be today. So glad that I found your blog through Pink Saturday! I like it so much that I'm now following you.

    Have a "fantastically" relaxing weekend!


  13. I wouldn't need to be asked twice to clamber amongst that delicious pile of pillows with a good book! Just what is called for...a wonderful weekend of nothing!
    Weather here is unseasonably warm this weekend, so I am feeling compelled make use of this gift and do something outside instead. Happy weekend Jeanne.

  14. Vietnam? Actually, I'm a bit jealous. Have visited twice and would love to spend a year or two there. Such a deep culture, much to learn. The people are exceedingly nice and polite. The food's delicious! I drank the water in hotels but that's a no-no on the street. The sweetest pineapple in the world is in a province near Hue. *drooling at the thought* The traffic's a mess but, don't panic - there's a method to it that's quite easy to navigate, worry not! And there are some gorgeous homes there. Ohhhh, what an exciting move.

  15. That's one gorgeous nook, wouldn't mind disappearing into that blanket & pillows for a good read! =)

  16. I would fit in there and fall asleep. So nice to meet you just found your beautiful blog and so happy I did. I have enjoyed looking around and I'm now following you, wonderful to meet new friends. Hope you find a spare minute to visit and follow me sometime if you like. Sending you special wishes for a wonderful New Year I’m looking forward to keeping in touch in 2012.
    Always Wendy

  17. Sharing the love this weekend and thanking you all for your comments. I see of a lot of like minds here...no surprises there! :)

  18. Now thats a nook! I doubt you could hide for very long. So glad I stumbled across your blog, looking forward to following along. Hope you're having a wonderful and relaxing weekend! xo

  19. I am so glad you found my blog! I love your blog, and have to say getting to read in that nook would be quite heavenly.
    I am following now and look forward to reading future posts.

  20. Wishing you all the best Jeanne...moving and packing is such a lot of work...hopefully soon you'll be able to enjoy some quiet time to yourself.
    I just love all those textures in the photo...so luxurious.

  21. Sound like another amazing place for you, Vietnam is supposed to be beautiful! Thanks for stopping by and following. Will be looking forward to seeing how your adventure unfolds, Laura

  22. I would love to curl up there with a mug of hot tea and do nothing for an afternoon. Vietnam !? I've not been following close enough. 2012 seems to be a year of change for many. Best of luck, and will follow more closely to find out more! David.
