It's been a pretty busy week, as usual. I'm managing to hold it all together and still enjoy my favourite month. Yes, October is my favourite month. Very favourite. The weather here is so very perfect. You can go out in long sleeves or a sweather but it's not cold enough to need a jacket. All the leaves are changing and there's a beautifully painted landscape outside the window. It's been raining a lot lately too, which I enjoy. The rain really enhances all the gorgeous colours of fall and makes everything 'pop'.
Here's a couple of quick phone cam pictures of where I sit and have my coffee/snack on Thursdays when I'm at school:
It's just so.......peaceful.
I've got some more fall photos to share with you:
One of my other favourite things about October is, of course, Halloween. You can say I'm too old for it all you want but I won't listen! haha.
This year's plan is to attend a zombie walk and the after party. It should be great fun! I'll be sure to take pictures. I'm so looking forward to dressing up and doing makeup and the whole bit. I play around with special fx makeup on occasion, for photoshoots and things like that and I have to say, it's a good time.
Last year's Halloween was zombie themed for my friends and I also. We drove down to Toronto and went to a club. I called my costume "flight of the living dead" - I was a zombie flight attendant. It seemed like a good idea at the time BUT my feet were killing me. I wore the most ridiculous heels, like 4 inch heels, it was outrageous! My poor feet hurt me so bad last Halloween but not this year, no fancy shoes for me this time around.
I managed to scoop a photo from my friend that she took last year while we were getting ready. My hair is all smooshed up like that because a wig was going on my head but here I am, painting on some of my wounds:
Also, on a totally unrelated note, I cut my hair!
I've pretty much always had waist length hair and I've been sneaking an inch or two off here and there when I get it cut. I visited the hairdresser the other day and 6-7 inches came off! Have a look:
Here's an old before picture (my hair was pretty much the same right before it was cut except that my bangs/fringe had grown out a bit)
So that was a bit of a long post! Wow.
I'll be back in a day or so with some crochet news, I have something to show you!
Have a beautiful Thursday!
