I woke up pretty early today. It was my maid’s last day. She quit, because she is going to a hairdresser school and she will open a beauty saloon. So, here I am back to cleaning, laundry and ironing (this is the worst for me), until I can find somebody else to help me.
I spend the day walking around and running away from the sun. It is too hot. I will go for a swim in a few minutes, but I won’t commit the same mistake as I did yesterday. Even though, I worked all week, my boss released us at noon yesterday. So, we went to buy white balloons for the New Year’s Eve and we came back home. It was really hot so we decided to go to the pool at 2:30 pm. The water was really warm and I couldn’t swim as much as I like. When we came back home, we were so sleepy that I didn’t want to do anything else, I relaxed a little bit and off I went to the groceries store and to the nail saloon.
As you might have read, the New Year’s Eve in Brazil is a huge deal, especially because we are in the middle of the summer. So a typical Brazilian party takes place by the beach and most of the people wear white clothes, buy new under wear and NEVER eat any kind of bird at the dinner.
I will follow just a few of all these superstitions. I will wear new underwear, eat shrimp, drink champagne with grapes, but my dress is red (no white for me).
Tomorrow we will head to our foster parents house by lunch time and I will take pictures for all of you to see the New Year’s celebration.
Happy 2007 everyone!!!
