|One of my all-time favorite pictures, a magical winter afternoon with tendrils of smoke and setting sun.|
I'm an avid reader and a book lover plus book collector (though in last year (2016) I had to give up most of my books to save space for I moved to smaller apartment. But I still have enough to fill about five bookshelves, so can't really complain). I read absolutely anything from milk cartons to biographies, but my favorite genres are (urban & epic) fantasy and (contemporary & paranormal) romance. I wish to be a librarian one day. If you're interested what I've been reading (and what I own), you can check my Goodreads account. I've been a member for years, but just began really using it this year...and will update my books etc. there in time.
I usually have my camera (digipocket, Canon PowerShot SX50 HS) with me wherever I go. (I'd love to get a real system camera, with its more adjustable settings, but unfortunately I can't afford it right now.) I really enjoy taking pictures and every now and then I manage to catch a real moment! I prefer photographing nature and/or animals - I really am no good with people, though occasionally I do try.
Singing is very close to my heart , and my taste of music is very eclectic.
On my free time I sing in a choir called Viihdekuoro Kuusanka (and read a lot). Other than that, I love to cook and bake, and every now and then I knit and/or crochet. Also, about two years ago I found a new hobby: beading. I love to make small jewelry out of glass/crystal beads (usually bracelets or pendants). I really should share some pictures of my jewelry here too (note to self!)
I live with a cat called Kiara. She's a mutt, half domestic and half Norwegian Forest cat. She looks exactly like a Norwegian, though she is a bit smaller than they normally are. Kiara has been with me since January 2014 when her previous owners had to give her up. At the time, Kiara was only about 10 months old. You can see pics of Kiara here.
