Weekend Plans: From Watching to Reading

Hey bookworms! We haven’t talked in a bit, so I thought why not give you guys my plans for the weekend. No adventures out for me though because work forgot to include P (pay) in PTO. They plan to pay me on this check, but it ruins all the plans I had set. I am already eager to go back to Vancouver, 3.5 days was not enough.

I still want to go to Vancouver Island, go whale watching, maybe see the orchestra, go to the museum. Get a better place to stay next time for sure. My back is still aching from the beds. I didn’t take many pictures… I am the worst at that… I like to consider myself a live in the moment kind of girl. Commit to memory rather than pause to get the perfect shot if that makes sense?

Hopefully I have more to tell and show you next time, but know I was happy and content with my trip.

Watching

Anne with an E

I am currently binging this on Netflix and loving it! It makes me want to explore the setting even more than before. The cast of children really bring the characters to life and it makes me want to continue reading the books. It is an amazing series! Can’t wait for season 2!

As for tomorrow I plan to have a movie day planned

A Lot Like Love

Tomorrow is going to be a mushy day except for one movie on the list if you can’t tell and I love the friendship this movie starts out with and I think it is exactly what I need.

One Day

Honestly one of my favorite movies and love stories and to me one of the most realistic (also one of my favorite books). When life gets a little rough it is one of the things that makes it easier is watching this.

Porco Rosso

An adorable lesser known Studio Ghibli film. It is cute and funny definitely lift your spirits in a good way kind of movie if you’re needing a smile. Yes, I suck at summaries and honestly haven’t seen it in years XD

and end my night with

Lady and the Tramp

What better way to get ready for a work week than to end your weekend with a disney classic? Always will be one of my favorites and it is one of the best love stories in history. At least in my opinion…

What I’ll be Reading 

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Perfect

My current audio book listen and I’m only a few minutes in so I don’t have thoughts yet, but I was really inspired by the first one. Needless to say I have high hopes for the sequel and I may be a bit biased because she is one of my favorite authors.

Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast

Moon Chosen

I haven’t picked it up since before I left on my trip, but I feel it is a good time to pick it back up and I feel like it will keep me from getting lost in my own thoughts.

The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne

The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh.jpg

Because I think everyone should read children’s classics no matter how old they are. They can hold more more truth than that of adult fiction. I think I will read a few tales and see what I can learn..

Well bookworms I think that is all that is on my agenda this weekend and maybe an ebook if I decide to turn on my nook tonight. What is on your holiday weekend agenda? Any great books or movies? Let me know in the comments and I hope you all have fun! Happy Reading!

Quick Update: Why I’ve Been on Hiatus

Hey bookworms I know I’ve been missing but if you’ve been following me on Twitter I’ve posted why, but I’ve been feeling bad that I haven’t posted why on here. Long story short we had to short sale my childhood home and it hasn’t been easy on me at all. So we have to be out of here by the 21st and we’re moving into my mom’s boyfriend’s house which is on the other side of town… Again not something I’m eager to accept, but I am trying to make it through (to quote the Degrassi theme! XD) Once I get a job, I plan to move back to my city of comfort and find an apartment of my own, hopefully with a service dog of my own to help which is something else I’m trying to look into.

On the note of  a job: I’m still on the job hunt the Bureau of Vocational Rehab process is taking much too long for my taste, but it’s due to their high in take, so I understand why. I want and need to work because not only do I need the money, but I am going stir crazy! I am still volunteering at All the Same Wild and Tame. We have 2 new kitties at my location (which I will need to figure out if I need to change my hours with me having to move 3o minutes away)

Lovely Leeluwp-1457916515182.jpg

Who is turning out to be another little diva. Sweet to me when I arrive and when I leave but 5-10 minutes later she changes her mind. I’m sure she’d stay sweet if she did surprise easy though with all the noise. She is a year old and is quite sweet when she wants to be.

Bluegrass

I’ve fallen in love with him and wish I could take him home! He is the sweetest 5 year old little boy in the world! He is content to just simply sit there, be petted, and mew greeting at you every time! I miss him when I’m not there, but I hope he finds the most loving home!

As for reading I am still in a slight slump due to being busy and my heart a little heavy with the move. I am listening to 2 audio books from the library Anne of Green Gables and Rebel Angels.

What else my mom decided to treat me to an early Birthday present which is on the 18th. She paid for me to get my hair done!

I’m so happy to have my hair short and red again. So at least that has kept my day bright as well as cleaning my room I found my favorite childhood picture and frame!

wp-1457916463436.jpg

Can you tell how much I’ve always been a Disney Freak? I literally adore this picture and want to go back to Disneyland and take another picture  and buy another frame (even if I am sad that they took away wheelchair line privileges because people who didn’t need it abused it…) I want to go back to the happiest place on earth and take the happiness and inspiration back!

Well bookworms that is all for now I have to get ready to tackle my last shelves in my closet and pack my books. I miss you all and books! Please send positive and lucky vibes my way I need them! I hope you all are doing well and I will be back the moment I’m settled! Happy Reading!
