je suis un lapin heureux

lavender of Provence

C'est vendredi!

(C'est vendredi means 'it's Friday' and here's a fun fact for you... weekdays aren't capitalized in French. I don't know why, but they aren't. And there you have it.)

First things first, the winner of the book giveaway is Gloria S. Congratulations Gloria!

Second things second... we're looking forward to a wonderful weekend of pretty much doing nothing here at Chez Nous (with the exception of tonight; tonight we're going over to Martine's house for Mojitos... Mojitos at Martine's, it sounds like the name of one of those snazzy CDs they sell at Starbucks). It's one of those weekends where we feel like being lazy, and it's a rare one because for once we can... we're not going anywhere and nobody is coming here! Can you believe it? I can't.

I feel like being so lazy in fact, that I'm wishing it would rain (I have a hard time lazing about if the sun is shining... I'm solar powered), like heavy dark grey skies, buckets of rain pelting the windows, lock your doors and stay inside type of rain. But with a 31°C/ 88°F, 10% chance of rain weather forecast for the weekend, I'm doubting my wish will come true. That's OK though, because weather forecasts like that are made for Rosé, which incidentally are what summer weekends are made for so either way I'm a happy bunny (it really doesn't take much).

And I hope all of you get to be happy bunnies this weekend too.
Bon week-end tout le monde!

  1. We are still at 30C but this morning we have a cloud cover and it actually feels damp outside! I will be more than happy if we get some rain,I find watering an expensive hobby. Wish we had a well! We also plan a very quiet weekend so lets hope we both enjoy. Diane

  2. Sometimes it's good to have a lazy weekend but I never wish for rain. We have too much of it normally over here but I'm happy to report that we have some of your weather here - clear blue skies and 82 degrees - what a treat! Bon week-end!

  4. Sounds lovely! It's too hot here for outdoor dining, strong sunshine and high humidity. Indoor rose always works though!

  5. Enjoy the rosé and the weekend... we had plenty of rain yesterday and more forecast today - I can try and blow some down South if you wish?

  6. Provence always needs rain so you are very generous in your wishes. You should be here - we have rain forecast (the kids' school fête on Sat was postponed because of the weather) and are planning to celebrate H's 2nd birthday from the couch! Couch and cake, parfaits!

  9. I feel the same way about sunny days... It was a bitch living in San Diego for 4 years... it NEVER rains. Every time I tried to be lazy and lounge and watch movies, it would only last an hour or two, then I'd go to the beach or something. #firstworldproblems

  13. Ooooh I love days like that when it's raining really hard and all you want to do is stay in and read in a cushy chair with a fuzzy blanket! I have yet to see if London gets good thunderstorms. I know there will be rain, but will there be thunder? We shall see!

    Enjoy your sun and mojitos! :o)

  17. Huh, 5 years of French lessons at school, and not a single person mentioned that non-capital thing. If they weren't probably all retired, I'd go back and take it up with those teachers ;o)
