    Well a visit to my mom might have to wait for a while as there is still alot of snow on the railroad, ad well as a train that drove into said lump of snow. And we are talking house sice snow lump here, lucky noen was ingured. The winter in Norway get cold and snowy somtimes. And to get to my moms I need to cross one of the highest montains in Norway and the train somtimes have to stop during windertime becouse of snow, and danger that snow will fall from the montain and take the train whit it. I can use plane, but it get so expensive, I rather wait.

    Here is an picture of the train tracks from a Norweegian e-newspaper.

    Oh my god Venefica! Can you believe only a small fraction of that amount of snow is needed to turn the Dutch public transport into chaos?
    I hope you can visit your mom soon.

    Wow Stacy, that must have been a very intensive dance lesson!

    miss Shimmy, how's your callenatics course going? I'm sure you'll be a great teacher!
    I guess people will feel very sore at first when they try out the video you're going to make

    I didn't have dance lesson last week because of Carnaval Well, me and some other students asked if we could still use the room, and it was allowed so we just danced for fun. And I wore my bellydance clothes at a Carnaval drink at the university (I didn't have anything else to dress up in) So you can imagine some people wanted me to show something Well I didn't really dance, just showed a belly roll and a shimmy and started talking about something else
    I'm a bit frustrated because at the end of next month we have a student performance, but we lost a lot of practice time due to the weather Now I don't know the choreography well enough to practice at home!

    (P.S.: Am I using too much smileys?)

    Norway is used to it, so they are cleaning up the tracks currently and it should not be so many days unthil they are cleared. Yes I am looking forward to seeing my mother as soon as possbile, as well as getting some of her homecooked food.

    A little soreness after a workeout is good, it indikate one have worked hard and gotten results, but not so mutch soreness that it realy hurt, that is not good. I wish you the best.

    Yeah, just the mention of snow here will throw everybody into a panic and they run to the store for milk, bread, and batteries...

    I don't know if it was that great of a workout or we're just all out of shape! We started with veils so arms are sore and someone brought up a question about the chest lifts and we started practicing those, and those muscles are sore (we've done chest lifts before but I guess it was more intense?)

    Moon I'm glad you did get a chance to dance around anyway even if you didn't get to have class...Even though we have no performance planned our teacher recorded herself dancing the choreography we learned and burned it to DVD and sold them for $3USD. If she had not done that I probably never would have learned it myself...although I still need to do a lot of polishing. I showed my mother and grandmother the other night and messed up several times.

    Miss Shimmy I'm jealous of your JOY...I want something exciting like that in the works...But I'm excited for you!

    Sound like a grate workout to me. You should be proud of yourself.

    Yes there are some things that will make Norweegian fly to the stores to pick up food to. My mom always shake her head over it, never have I experienced that it have gone more than a day or two where food could not be obtained, having some canned food for a day or two might be wise, and an extra pack of batteries is always a good idea, but more than that is completly unessesary in our modern sosiety. Ofcourse the stores earn well on hysteria.

    My mama told me of one time where some store workers threathend whit a strike, those never last for more than a few days but pepole went insane, she tells me she did witness two old ladies figting oer a bread in the store, as it were we had to use gas stations to fresh up on milk and such things for a few days, but other than that there was no problem the few days the strike lasted. Pepole are easy to make hysteric.

    With the hurricanes we've had here I'm prepared for power outages. I have a generator, bottled water, flashlights, a propane stove etc. I hate to be in "survival mode" but when you've been without electricity for weeks on end you never want to be without again.

    hello beautiful dancers.
    you know the british often complain about the weather,its too cold,too hot,too cloudy blah blah..i get realy peeved when they complain and proceed to bring up parts of the world that have a right to sound out bad weather...''sigh''.

    i guess people in norway get quite frightened just in case the snow is extra bad,maybe they like babylonia have gone without before and dont wanna experiance it again,who knows.
    my boys would love jumping in all that snow for sure.

    lovely to see you moon,thankx for stopping by


    you can never have too many smileys
    the callanetics is going great,thankx for asking,I am revising for a writen test,that will be first though I am not sure when,but best to be prepared.when i have been to joy,i will give the video full focus,well callanetics like bellydance awakens muscles you never knew secretly slept..LOL

    oh that carnival sounds like fun !!

    hello there stacey,lovely that you also stopped by,we love hearing how you are doing
    i wish you could come along to joy,I couldnt go last year as i was no where near ready,that plus we thought we were moving,it was my other half that was insistant that i go this time,bless him

    its funny what you say about the chest lifts,as i find them quite natural to do,but i had one week where my muscles ached,i think the more you repeat it,the deeper it works,a bit like the callanetics,are ya with me?so..its a good sign long as its not pain you are feeling.

    my bellydance book came today,wow it has everything in it!!well,the part that will help me the most at the moment,it has a good section on costume making,its realy helped me feel more confident and given me some ideas.
    my first project is a performance costume,something simple but beautiful.
    it says that veils are beautiful made from silk,so i may make a few yards of that silk in to a veil,some harem pants...for a skirt over the top...i might make it outta silk ties,all gathered on a belt,can you vision what i mean?
    and the top it has to be black....

    the material i have its got a slight purple shimmer with henna pattern on it..its amazing..

    i wonder,should i make the costume,a practise version with other material?
    not entirely sure...
    what would you do?

    the top i want to make from black velvet,gathered at the front,my chest is quite large you see,v neck/gathering will it compliment it i wonder?

    love always
