Hello Alex and hello everyone.
I´m glad to hear that you have enjoyed the sunny weather. I´m melting! And I really would like to have this "cold weather" here. I thought I´d never say(write) this, but... I missing the autumn!!! I want to feel that freeze wind in my face and get my nose red because of the wind, anyway... nevermind!
In fact, I´m going to get a holiday for Easter, and I´m looking foward for it! I always spend Easter with my family (today I´m going to talk about them) and we never travel, once my mother is very catholic and she likes to follow the Easter Triduum cerimony. However I`m planning to go to the movies on Saturday ( I´m a huge films´ fan).
Brazil is the biggest Roman Catholic nation in the world, Then this week has a strong meaning among catholic people. We fasting all the week, and on Friday we don´t eat any meat, it´s time to reflection, it´s time to purify our soul and like this on Sunday rebirth with a brand new one.
I´m very interesting to know about the "weird" egg-rolling game, I wonder how this game is... anyway, tomorrow you´ll tell us.
On Holy Saturday we have here a weird traditional too, which most of the children love it, at least me, my sisters and cousins, when we were children loved it. I didn´t find the exactly meaning in English , but it´s somenthing like "Punch the Judas". It´s weird, but it´s really funny. Tomorrow I´ll tell you more details.
As we´re talking about holiday and you´re going to travel to visit your family, I´d like to talk about my family too. I live with my mother and two sisters, older than me ( which the ages I don´t reveal, even I was under torture, If I did, maybe tomorrow I won´t be here blogging with you!) [ :)]
My mum, Dirce is a homemaker, she´s the centre of our home. She´s a strong and kindhearted woman, and also is a very supportive mother. My dad passed away twelve years ago, so our home is a women´s home.
We share the household shores, so we don´t overload my mum, and also we don´t overload anybody.
Roseli, my elder sister is our guide tourist. She knows everywhere in Sao Paolo, and she loves to travel, especially to Rio de Janeiro. She studied law and works with consumer rights at a mobile phone company in Sao Paolo. We just see each other on weekends, due she arrives too late of her job, and I leave home early to work.
My other sister, Rosana, is sweet and kind, she´s always by my side when I need her. She´s a secretary at a dentist office, and recently she won a scholarship to the university! She´s studing social work, and she´s doing well. We are so proud of her! I hope I can also get a university scholarship. That is my dream!
What I like most is when we spend the Saturdays afternoons together, we´re sipping coffee or tea and talking about our lives. I really enjoy their company and I´m so glad that we get along very well.
And you? Do you have any particular day of the week to enjoy the company of your famly? If so, please let me know.
Oh Alex, in the end of your blog I could read something that I really liked to know .
No way! You´re kidding! Darth Vader is my hero too! We have to talk about it when could be possible.
Ah... about my job. I don´t work at a petrochemical industry. However chemestry is the soul of the business [ ;) ].
See you tomorrow. May the Force be with you.
