Hi there my sweets, sending you a big kiss from over here…..
I have been AWOL for a while. Totally unexpected and unplanned, in fact I had big plans to be super productive, finish a ton of things on my to-do list and blog all about it. And then this happened:
Last week it was Carnaval, it meant I had a week off from work. I used to be an avid celebrator of Carnaval, I would dive right in head first and be totally off the grid for three days. And then I fell of the wagon a couple of years ago. I think it was at least five years since I had celebrated Carnaval.
The Spring break had become the perfect time to work on my house and blog and I didn’t even miss celebrating Carnaval anymore.
I was convinced this year would be the same.
But then it happened…
The music got to me….
The people in the funny costumes got to me….
All the color in the streets got to me….
And then in a flash I got dressed up with some things I dug up from the dress-up trunk – actually a lot of things since it is winter here and it was freezing cold even during the day – and submerged myself in the madness.
And I enjoyed every minute of it…..
And I was lost……..
The next days it was even colder and it snowed so I dressed up extra warm……
Warm and dry….
I hadn’t worn my motorcycle clothes for years. My guy keeps buying faster machines that are ever more less comfortable for me to ride along on. So I wasn’t at all sure this idea would work. My protective leather clothes were pretty tight to begin with.
….. I was so proud that I could still fit in them, even with the extra layers underneath….
I couldn’t breath though….
But what the heck, oxygen is way overrated anyway…..
It was heaps of fun and I needed some serious recuperating time after it. So I spend the remainder of the week watching a DVD marathon and keeping my tired feed up.
Now it is back to work and back to the daily grind.
So what have you been up to while I was playing dress up?
And do you think I could pull it off to go dark haired? It was fun confusing people who didn’t recognize me without my blond hair.
I blogged about Carnaval in my city before. I even took a look at it from a decorator’s / bloggers point of view, and in the early early days of this blog I even posted some more pictures of me dressed up through the years.
