Ah…A Calm Day Needs It Some Belly Dancing Music

December 27, 2007 at 4:14 pm 3 comments

New Site Music.  One of the songs, ironically came from the “belly dancing” genre.  Not that I was listening to belly dancing music, or anything…no way!  Um…I just happened to run across it.  Well, I started with Celtic, but that got to be a bit much, and then instrumental, and that was boring…well, if it says “belly dancing”, you end up clicking on it.  Fortunately, there was no video or photos, and you have to LOVE the drum cadence…for a while.  Listen for it.  Reminds me of a marching band, but whatever.  I guess you could belly dance to it.  Not that I’ve tried.  Maybe I should.  Hmmm.   Oh, this is a public blog, on the internet, as The Hub would say.  I’d better just move on. 

In the “Celtic” section, there was a song called “The Red Headed Boy”…HAD to have that one. 

Well, ya’ll will just have to go check out the belly dancing music for yourself.  You’ll prob’ly thank me later.

Back on track here (IS there a “track”?  ‘Cause I veered of it long ago I do believe), there is one “celtic” song that plays a rendition of “Eye of the Tiger” and I just get so slap happy when that comes on!  Celtic!…does Eye of the Tiger…I’m just seeing that coming to Riverdance!  What?  I think it would fly!  Rocky XV does Riverdance!  It would be a hit, no doubt about it.  You know you’d go see it, so don’t be scoffin’.  Maybe they’d throw in a bellydance number…then no doubt everyone would be there!  It’s a box office hit in the making.  They’ll get the music selection from my blog probably.

I just made hot chocolate for my little athletes, worked on my header a bit, and am reading a college level advertising design book, and a designer’s approach to scrapbooking.  Man, I’ll have a BS by the time it’s over…and I’ll be lovin’ it.

If only there were more time to work on design lately!

In my “free time”, catching 10 minutes here and there, I’m cutting out denim quilt blocks.  My cutting board wasn’t big enough to do 12″ squares I think I’m going to work with, so I bought a new cutting mat today!  Ah…I think it will go faster now.

I also picked up some stocking stuffers for my SILs (still one more Christmas on Saturday, and one in Feb. when the Pop comes home…Mom IS leaving her tree up until then!), but now that one of my SILS is reading (thank you!  You are the greatest!), I can’t post about it yet!  Hopefully, I’ll remember to tell ya’ll, ’cause I REALLY love mine!  It’s one of my favorite stocking stuffers…okay, so I picked it out and bought it and asked hubby to please wrap it for me! 😀

    Yes…I checked out the belly dancing music. It’s actually very good in a strange, mesmorizing kind of way. Anyway…it made me smile today.

    I love love love belly dancing music…in fact… I used to take a belly dancing class in Lexington, thus where the fascination originated. I think it is a beautiful artform and it is for the young and the old and everything in between…anyway, the point is…love the belly dancing music.

    You are so amazing…I just wonder how you do it all, Maggie.. You blow me away… I don’t know how I’d even have the time to do as much crafty things you do with your kids. I can barely keep my house in order to get much fun done. I try, though, even through the mess to be crafty…

    Anyway, point is … good job!!! You are an inspiration to me!

    Much love, Mamarosi

    Yay! I can comment again 🙂 You always, always bless me and I pray that the next few days of ’07 and the whole of ’08 bring all those blessings back upon you tenfold.

    Thank you!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
