R - Read. Relax. Reinvent yourself.

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:43 AM in , , ,
 This must be paradise for me, read a lovely book, enjoy the music, relax in my favourite armchair and simply let your mind wonder.
 Come and join me, now I am in the mood of a good book, any ideas?

Picture from here



Reading...it calls to me. I am undone if I'm not in the middle of a good book!
Nice one!

@Sush - I knew you would understand :)

I'd love a room like the one in your picture - an ideal place to relax and read.

Looks lovely Claudia, will invest in some new books this evening my self and just chill out this weekend. Might be one or two car drawings/paintings also. Life is good - at last!
Have a lovely weekend

@Paula - my thoughts exactly!
@Eva - maybe one day I will get one of your paintings, who knows? Happy weekend too!

Claudia,you had me at the first "R" :-)

What a lovely room. Just looking at it brings a calm, peacefulness. Thanks for sharing it AND the music. I love Vivaldi, especially The Four Seasons.

@Becky - great, I think that these are my favorite activities for this challenge!

Ohhhh... wow. I feel peaceful simply looking at that room! Fantastic!!

Now, to face my Friday morning a bit more refreshed!!

What a wonderful personal sanctuary! I would love one like it of my own, full of amazing books and great music (including Vivaldi, one of my favorite composers!).

Lorna Byrne:"Angels in my hair" and her newest "Stairways to heaven". Recipe on it´s way. Sorry, been busy!

@Julie- glad to hear that my post improved your day!
@Lynn - yes, the lamps are very pretty, they make the room look classy!
@Angela - that is a great statement and I so agree with it!
@Amanda - yes, Vivaldi is also one of my favorite composers
@Sofia - do not worry, I wait :) I have good reason!

Claudia, the room is wonderful. The advice grand.

@November Rain - happy ou liked the room :)

What a lovely place to unwind. Looking forward to reading a good book again once the A-Z Challenge is done!

If that's your den, it's wonderful! I love the sun lit area and spacious windows. My den is too dark. We have wooden library panels on one side and had to build a sun room that blocks light from coming into our french doors; however, it was the best option to fix our constant flooding problem rotting our floors with each rain. It's still a nice place to read as long as I turn on a lamp.

Catch My Words

what an inviting room! a getaway in your house! love the colors and comfyness!

Reading and relaxing two of many favorite things! ♥

@Amy - I just finished one this morning, truly put a smile on my face!
@Joyce - that is my dream den :)
@Tara - not my home, but my dream home
@Jo - so similar :)

Claudia, that is a beautiful room to relax in!

@Susanne - indeed!

I think you have a theme going on in the last few posts--but I don't know if I'd get enough done resting, relaxing, and reinventing. HA HA. Three is always a time and a place for it-- and I try to do it when I need it. Of course, I did just return from vacation :)

Cheers, Jenn

@Jenn - yes, my theme was happiness and I am glad you enjoyed my tips :)

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
