Cledus T. Judd – She’s Got a Butt Bigger than the Beatles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQmLzIJoXKA

 

A corny cheesy song! I like the part where the hot buff guys are offering her healthy snacks and she pushes them away. And I love the part at the end where he says he loves his sweetie

 

Buttttttt….I’m kinda feeling like I have a butt as big as the beatles right about now. So time to get on the health horse and ride away!!!! Ba ba da ba ba da baaaa baaaa….there are lots of veges in my fridge now – get them to my mouth.

 

Exercise machine remove those piles of clothes we’re gonna get to know each other again!

MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the
week with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)

You know the saying if you have lemons, make lemonade? Well how about if you have lemons, make Vodka Lemonade Cocktail Pie! Today brings another National Pie Day http://www.piecouncil.org/. So in honor of Martini Monday and National Pie Day, I think it calls for a tart boozy slice of lemony goodness.

Vodka Lemonade Cocktail Pie
8 servings

1 Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
2 cups lemon sherbet, softened
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® 99% Fat Free lemon cream pie
1 can (12 oz) frozen lemonade concentrate
1/4 cup vodka
Lemon slices, if desired

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 450°F. Place pie crust in ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Press crust firmly against side and bottom; flute. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Mix sherbet, yogurt, lemonade concentrate and vodka until blended. Spoon into crust. Freeze uncovered until firm, about 3 hours. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish each serving of pie with lemon.

I drink therefore I am. – W. C. Fields

Enjoy your pie! – Bethsheba

SO MUCH FUN SATURDAY –
(the greatest day of the week!)

 

What might a goddess like me be doing on a wintery evening such as this? Well drumming, of course! I met a very nice couple named Fiona and Jeff. Fiona hails from merry ole England and is she an interesting person!

Each month they host a group of people who join together, drink wine, eat a pot luck (I’m bringing Asiago cheese and spinach rice) and DRUM!!!! BOOM BOOM BOOMMMM!!! Last time I joined the little group we were about about 10 and this time we’re on tap for 25! Being a goddess who likes to belly dance once in a while, Fiona offered up her hip scarf and I was able to shimmy those chocolate chip cookies away!

What exactly is a drum circle you ask?

A drum circle is any group of people playing  drums in a circle – duh! They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end in itself rather than preparation for a performance. They can range in size from a handful of players to circles with thousands of participants. There is no music to read. One only bangs away with the rhythym of the rest of the player for an extended period of time. Typically one person starts a rhthym. The song varies in timing and loudness. And it can be soothing or invigorating!!! 

In 1991, during testimony before the US committee on Aging, drummer Micky Hart state:

 Typically, people gather to drum in drum “circles” with others from the surrounding community. The drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail. It includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and themselves. To form a group consciousness. To entrain and resonate. By entrainment, I mean that a new voice, a collective voice, emerges from the group as they drum together.

 

Drummer’s Journey
By Cara Sadira

Iam the drum
I am pulsing
Synchronizing beat that captivates the soul

And through the drum
I become
The flame

Moving, flickering,
Originating from within
This is absolute creation of original thought

And I, it, we, are moving
As One
Expressing, Exhilarating, Unifying

I am the drum

“Without art, we’re just monkeys with car keys.” – Author Unknown

Enjoy your Saturday night – and maybe bang on a drum…

When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels! January 12, 2012

Filed under: happy thoughts,Interesting — celebrationgoddess @ 6:49 am
No that isn’t Santa Claus

THINKING THURSDAY – (enjoy
learning something new!)

 

You can never start early enough when teaching the art of making snow angels!!

All eyes on on the sky anticipating the first large snow of the season. We had an incredible run baby just suck it up and get ready. Break out the :

  • Shovel – one that feels good in your hands. Well it would feel better in someone else’s hands than mine but since I’m a single goddess, I guess it will be my hands eh?
  • Pam spray – what am I planning on making flapjacks? – Nope! My ex taught me that if you put it on the blower and shovel (yeah he’s the one that used to shovel and snow plow, I will miss that), that it will just slide right off. Hmmm do you think that if I go out and spray the entire driveway rigth now the falling snow won’t stick to the driveway? I wish….
  • The boots and snow pants – I bought myself some new boots with an adorable fur trim and black puffy snow pants that make a corduroy swishing sound while I walk. And yes they do make my butt look big, I don’t have to ask anyone about that!
  • The hot cocoa – cause yes you can now get the car out and wore your cute new snow outfit, but it’s a law that there is a cup of hot deliciousness to help soothe yourself after all that work!

Since it’s a learning type of day, I got these snow tips from and article I found:

Be Safe Shoveling Snow this Winter

by Marcus Pickett

Snow Shoveling Safety Tips

  • Don’t shovel soon after you wake up. A slipped disc injury is much more likely to occur in the morning due to the build-up of fluid in the disc from lying down all night.
  • Check with your doctor if you have even reason to believe shoveling snow might present a health hazard, particularly any heart condition.
  • Use multiple layers of clothing, shed layers to avoid becoming overheated, and use slip-resistant boots.
  • Spray or rub some type of lubricant on the shovel to keep snow from sticking to your shovel?the lighter the load, the better.
  • Before you start, drink some water to stay hydrated, and stretch like you would for any strenuous activity.
  • Take frequent breaks.

The False Security of the Snow Thrower
Loathe to shovel their snow, many homeowners own a snow thrower. It may seem almost too easy, getting out there with a high-powered snow, while your neighbor labors and heaves with a manual shovel. According to the Center for Disease Control and United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, snow thrower-related injuries account for 4,000-6,000 emergency room visits each year. More than 1,000 of these injuries will result in maiming or amputations.

 Unfortunately, too many people take snow thrower safety for granted until injuries occur. Most recently, NHL center Joe Sakic broke three fingers and damaged tendons by reaching into the snow thrower. This is the most common snow thrower injury, as most people don’t realize, despite manufacturer warnings, that the augur blades can continue to rotate even after the machine has been shut off. Despite recent quotes from Avalanche VP Jean Martineau, who was defending Sakic’s use of a snow thrower despite a bad back, using a snow thrower involves a lot more than “just going for a walk.”

Alternatives to Snow Shovels and Snow Throwers
Obligated to keep their sidewalks clear, many homeowners may feel like they have few snow removal options, especially if their neighborhood doesn’t have the entrepreneurial teenager. While most people know professional snow removal services are out there, few realize that contacting these professionals can be as easy as a few mouse clicks. Internet users can easily find an online referral service that will match homeowners with local contactors. Ironically, the industry leader for online home improvement referrals, ServiceMagic, is actually headquartered in Lakewood, CO, some 9 miles from the Pepsi Center?home of Joe Sakic’s Colorado Avalanche.

Have a Snow Removal Plan
This is the silver bullet for safely removing snow from your property. From young residents who are trying to get down on expenses as much as possible to older homeowners who need a low-maintenance solution to their snow-covered sidewalks, devising a plan, long before the snow begins to fall, that will ensure your health and safety is critical to handling the winter season.

Moons and Goddesses January 11, 2012

WOW WHAT A GODDESS WEDNESDAY

Good evening,

What a lovely day and night. The drive to work held an hour worth of Espanol for Gringos. Is it sinking in? What did I learn? Unfortunately un poquito.  I did learn that Rosetta Stone totally immerses the student in Spanish with no English words. 

What else?  That deep dish pizza eaten in a fancy Asian looking building tastes just as good as if I was sitting on my couch. The moon tonight is still exceptional. In honor of the moon, I’d like to share a poem with you.

SOFT MOON SHINING

My beloved Divine Mother  
Dance with me
under the soft moon shining
in the wide open fields
far beyond the toil and trouble
of my busy mind

Dance with me
before the night grows old
while the winds of love
still bow the grasses
and the coyotes howl for you
to step their way

Dance with me my beloved
while the Mystery’s Edge
still flirts in the shadow
of your radiant light

From the book Soft Moon Shining:

http://www.amazon.com/Soft-Moon-Shining-Mother-Universe/dp/0972931724/ref=sr_1_sc_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1326341620&sr=8-3-spell

God may be in the details, but the goddess is in the questions. Once we begin to ask them, there’s no turning back.  Gloria Steinem

Hope you enjoyed the the day and the poem.

Experience a new day!

TUNES TUESDAY – (enjoy grooving on a Tuesday

old favorite or something totally new!!)

I’m feeling better about life so I’ve decided to get back into the game! I enjoyed a fun-filled summer, a fun-filled fall and now it’s time to get back into the swing. New experiences, better things are happening at work, and overall life is looking up.

Watermelon with Feta? July 15, 2011

Filed under: Side Dishes - you Lovely Dishes — celebrationgoddess @ 6:14 pm

FOODIE FRIDAY – (enjoy a
new recipe to try this weekend!)

I’m cutting up a watermelon to bring for a party tomorrow and thought hmmmm how am I gonna give it a goddess twist? Vodka? Marrying it to other fruit? Watermelon meet blueberry – I now pronounce you man and wife. 

How about an interesting salad?

Summer Watermelon Salad

  • 3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 quarts seeded, cubed watermelon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pitted black olive halves
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
 
Directions Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice. The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion. Let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with the lime juice, and mint. Drizzle olive oil over it all, and toss to blend. Dig in and be prepared for a pleasant surprise!

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
