My daughter Jennifer in all her glory at her Belly Dancing Graduation....I was sure a proud Mom!
Everyday it seems I'm making changes to the 2 belly dancing costumes for the big performance in August, I was at the Belly Dancing studio late last night...classes are lasting longer in preparation and then I shopped for about 45 minutes trying everything on...so far within the last 7 days I have bought 2 shimmy belts, a longer accent scarf with fringe and a veil. On Saturday I want to get another accent scarf for the 2nd outfit.
I'm getting excited.....Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Aziza, Artimis, Fathem ......etc.will be here and I will be taking their workshops and seeing them perform live....way cool!
Bye for now.....Diane
Did you know that the National Zoo in Washington DC have 2 cams where you can watch the daily lifes for the Panda at the zoo. The Momma Panda maybe about to have a baby.......they aren't exactly sure if she really is with baby....Pandas can have pseudo pregnacies......so it is just wait and see.....check it out.....wouldn't be cool to witness the first days of a baby pandas life especially since they are endangered. Got to love something so Big, Roundy and Cuddly.
It's Friday .....happy days are here again...for a short work week it sure has seemed long.....after being off for 6 days the reentry can be hard. Well tomorrow I have 2 bellydancing classes and in the turbo bellydancing it is weigh in day ....yuck....I think I'm going to have to start focusing on just adding more exercise to my week and less focus on the food aspect...the minute I'm on a diet I'm hunger all day long....
Well our big Belly Dancing performance is about 5 weeks away....I can dance 3 different dance because I go to 3 different advanced one classes.....the Thursday night class' dance is hard....it is a choreography that I know but it has zills added to it.....you ask me dance and play zills...my brain hasn't caught on yet....there is also a Wed mid day class....I love the dance they are doing.....I'm thinking about taking some vacation time and attending maybe their class the last 3 weeks if I can perform their dance....I needed to talk to Isis and get her blessing.....the class members may not like it but hey they will get over it! Besides one of the requirements is that I have to perform it to move up to the next level.....hopefully I will be prepared to test out of 3 of the required 4 dance test outs after Yaa Halla Ya'll in Sept....that is my goal.....I need to get off my kester and practice at home.....the problem is I live in a small apt with a very, tiny living area....it is the only area that I can dance in....oh well I just need to do it ...later Diane
Hi all....well I have to tell you that I'm sitting here in another wonderful wig.....a stylish Platinum white, long page boy cut wig...I really haven't worn it out in public but I'm going to venture out to do some shopping....it is definitely a eye grabber and you have to be in the just the right mood or should I say attitude to wear it....I will have to let you know how it goes! This is my 2nd day of vacation and I had all these plans for things I wanted to get to during this time off....it seems I only have enough energy to go to Belly dancing classes and the stables daily and then I'm tapped....sickly tired....I'm hoping whatever was wrong with me last year isn't reappearing it's ugly head....never could determine the root cause....I'm not sure if Hemochromotosis can cause extereme exhaustion.....I should be happy I have the energy to take 5 Belly dancing classes a week...it was so much worse not that long ago when I could barely walk up the flight of stairs to get to my apt. I guess I have to be happy with where I'm at and accept living in a messy abode. Maybe it a good thing I don't have a man in my life ......my apt would be embarrassing....my daughters are good about understanding, Thank God for my wonderful daughters! d
Well Freida I'm changing my font for you.....I hate that you had trouble reading my entries, but happy that you went to so much trouble messing with the font so you could read......I really appreciate you reading my journal and leaving me comments....how is your garden looking.....can you send me your link again to your journal ....maybe you can post some photos of your summer garden? Well no dates in the past week and hardly any interest from the fellows on the dating site.....I keep praying that God will bless me with a wonderful Man to at least date and share some time with soon......I guess finding a Man that will appreciate me and all my quirkiness....Belly Dancing...Wigs of many colors....oh well life with me wouldn't be dull. I'm going to attempt to add a picture of me in my Platinum Blonde wig!
