A New Beginning… Soon

by

I have been inactive on this blog for months now. Part of that is my own laziness, part of it is busy life and a bit of it was that I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. It took a bit of time, and some back and forth, but I have decided that I am going to give up my bcshutterbug domain.

Though i will always be a B.C. girl, I feel that since I live in Alberta now I’m not technically a BC Shutterbug. Also, the shutterbug gives the impression of photography, which was initially the point, but not what i want for my blog anymore. And I realized I really miss my old original domain: everchanging.ca

So, I bought the domain, since it was available again. That will be the home of my new blog. The plan is that it will be a place for me to ramble on about my crafting, books, video games, and whatever other obsessions I come across (musicals, tv shows, hockey…I have a few). It is not up yet because I want to have a few posts ready to go and a plan for how to continue.

As I don’t have an actual following I don’t think this move is going to affect anything. I am aiming for beginning of December as a goal for having the site up, but that may move to the new year depending on what life brings.

So this is basically a good bye to bcshutterbug.ca from me. Now I just need to think of a new username to signup for things…

International Happiness Day

by

I learned today that it is International Happiness Day, and while the snow fell outside on this first day of spring covering the mostly bare ground outside, I decided why not post some photos of things that make me happy. (I will preface these photos by saying that my family and friends also make me happy)

1. Calypso, my crazy, destructive, selectively-cuddly, whiny cat. Here is a picture of her from when she was a kitten.

2. The Ocean. I miss it so much.

Cloudy day in Tofino

3. Rain. Something I also miss, it doesn’t really rain much here.

Rain on the railing

4. Books. Reading them and just having them. Books are my shopping addiction.

Chapter Nine

5. Tea.

54/365 Chair Back

Lots of other things make me happy too, like camping and watching the Canucks win and playing video games, but I don’t have pictures of everything and I think this is enough. Hope everyone is having a happy day!

Music Monday: Disney

by

So I finally saw Frozen last Thursday and loved it! It got me on a bit of a Disney music kick (I go on them from time to time). So I thought I’d post a few of my favourite Disney movie songs. There will probably more of these in the future…I love Disney music.

Do You Want To Build A Snowman – Frozen

One Jump Ahead – Aladdin

Belle – Beauty and the Beast

W…W…W… Wednesday (Reading meme)

by

Usually I do a Wordless Wednesday, but I thought I’d change it up (partly because I haven’t been taking pictures, partly because I don’t have many of my older photos on this computer). It seems lately my focus has been books, even if I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like, so I went a-googling and found myself a reading meme at Should Be Reading. So here is it!

• What are you currently reading?
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
I am very much enjoying this book so far (I believe I’m just over halfway through). I love the way Joe Hill writes, having read his previous two novels, Heart-shaped Box and Horns. I really enjoy books that are not predictable, and though some of the little things are not surprising there have been quite a few things that were not what I would have ever expected. Definitely recommend this book to any horror fans!

• What did you recently finish reading?
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
This is a book I got in 2012 for Christmas, having asked for it, but just never quite got around to reading. When I got the second book of the trilogy for Christmas last year I decided it was time to start it. At first I was a bit wary, the names of the cities and some of the people were seemingly uninspired in my opinion, but once I got into the story I got over any reservations I may have had. It is quite easy reading but a captivating story. I found it quite good and will definitely continue the series once I’m through a few more of the books at the top of my reading list.

• What do you think you’ll read next?
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
I decided this was going to be my next read after seeing the preview for the National Theatre Live stage adaptation while at the theatre to see the NTL encore of Coriolanus. It looked very intriguing and I would very much like to see it. Knowing it was a book first I of course would like to read the book before seeing the show. I look forward to reading it! (And it means I get to go to the bookstore, something I’ve avoided being lacking in a paycheck in recent months).

That was fun! I do love talking books. So, what are you all reading?
