Throw Back Thursday – Almost Famous

I love Halloween.

I love that for one universal night, everyone has the chance to be something different from their regular day to day lives.  The scale of creativity is limitless.  You never know what you’ll see from peoples’ imaginations.  I like that kind of uncertainty.

Nothing displeases me more. 😦

Halloween this year, kinda fell by the wayside.  I’m living out of sorts, because I’m planning a major move before the start of winter.  I will be much happier when that happens; but, in the meantime, I’m feeling depressed.

And just because I’m not getting to partake in any dress-up shenanigans, doesn’t mean that I can take the fun out of my son’s Halloween.  I made him a super cool race-car driver costume.  His school parade is today, and trick – or – treat is this Saturday.  I will have fun for him, and no doubt, he will have fun, too.

So I’m going to live vicariously through my Throw Back Thursday post.

The Penny Lane

One year for Halloween, I dressed up as Penny Lane, from Almost Famous.  I figured it really easy, because people often tell me that I look like Kate Hudson.  It’s also, a very, good movie!

Halloween – 2010

Halloween 2010. I won prize $$ at my work’s costume contest.

What is everyone dressing up as this year?

Throw Back Thursday – Metro Park

Today, like any other weekday, I awoke before the birds.  6a.m.  I scramble in the morning to pack my son’s lunch for school.  I know I could save myself the hassle if I would pack it the night before.  I fully intend to implement that practice, one day.  We jet off to the bus stop by 7:20.

When I get back, I sip my hot coffee on the porch, surrounded by 11.2 acres of woods.  The birds have finally woken up.  We have a lot of woodpeckers and titmice.  Yup; titmice, that’s a bird.  The sounds of nature remind me of a throwback to the days when I lived back in my old town.  Not a very wooded area; however, we did have a metro park that I would enjoy trailing.

Silver Creek Metro Park

I would often take my son to the metro park with his bucket in hand, to collect his treasures.

I really enjoyed when my brother would come along for our adventures, too.

My brother.

This picture was taken right before he ripped a big hole in his shorts.  haha

There had been a time when a storm was approaching, and the moody clouds contrasted really well with the crisp land.

Silver Creek Metro Park – I love blue and green.

My mom is the type that if there were a storm brewing, she’d send us in the basement.  There was no fun in that.

Silver Creek Metro Park – Strong like a tree.

One more day till the weekend; then, the birds will wake up before me!!  I probably jinxed myself with this, and my son will wake me up at 5:30a.m.  Let’s hope not.  🙂
