No travel for me this holiday weekend...staying in town doing stuff...Yesterday, I took a walk downtown on Belle Isle..
I took the picture below on the island but did not post it at first because I couldn't decide if it was creepy or not. I see other folks online posting pictures of random people on the street -- I mean not 'street art', but photos of specific people they see around, and doing that always seemed a bit creepy to me.
So I sent the pic to a couple of friends, asking if it was creepy. And they both said it seemed pretty anonymous, so it was not creepy. I mentioned to one that the sunbather was center of attention in the photo, and that I was pretty close to him. That friend said the picture would not be as good further away.
Since they both thought it was fine, I went ahead an posted it!
I met up with my sister today. She is changing careers and wants to open her own electrolysis business. She is going to school for it, including both classwork as well as practice. She needs 100 hours of practice, so I have been going nearly every weekend to her school so she can practice on me, lol!
And LORD KNOWS, I could use a bit of electrolysis on my back! I told my Brazilian friend about it after one session, and he asked if I was 'bald' -- careca
-- but I misunderstood the word (I thought he asked if I was 'hairy'), so I answered como um macaco
-- 'like a monkey!', lol...
Glad to get a bike ride in this morning. Still very short rides under 16 miles, but it feels great to be out on the bike!
I have just started talking to a guy in Brazil online. We have traded a few Whatsapp messages, text and voice. Now, he wants to talk directly on the phone, which is a bit nerve-wracking for me! He's cute...and has a nice voice. And really, if you can't flirt with a guy 6000 miles away, who on Earth can you flirt with, lol?
But it's so so hard to converse on the phone in a different language! We'll see. I told him maybe this holiday weekend. We shall see...
I bought a book for a friend for her birthday. Actually, I bought one for me and one for her, lol! Our gifts tend to have a theme, and that theme would be alcohol! It's a cute book! I like it -- it's about which plants are used to make cocktails and why, and it also includes recipes for the ingredients! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1616200464/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have lavender growing outside, so I cut some, dried it and hung it in the kitchen --
Anyway, I think a friend is coming over for wine tonight...so far the weekend has been nice!
