It’s something that is not quite as easy to clean as the spill in the photo….
Maybe this is a sign that dievca needs to shift over to her new computer, bought in August?
she’s been dragging her substantial a** on it.
Um, the rubbing alcohol she poured on the wireless keyboard made the screen turn upside down…..and that irritation might just give her the impetus to switch.
Yeah~we all know what her weekend will entail.
So what’s the grossest thing you’ve spilled on your computer keyboard?
Master is traveling to family for the Holidays.
dievca is staying in NYC.
she proposed a Christmas dinner to some friends
and they took her up in it!
It looks like those Christmas decorations do need to be put up.
dievca might have to wear her version of an ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’.
This is as close as she gets….something a smidgen cheesy.
dievca’s washed a lot of sheets and items of clothing these past few days.
All towards getting a sleeping schedule and meds correct. It’s still not down solid.
The all-encompassing Family challenges have taken their toll.
Normally dievca tries to start out the week with a bit of coffee happiness – on Mondays.
Apparently, her coffee post went out on a Sunday.
That doesn’t really matter in the big picture until dievca flies out on an early flight and needs to figure out which day of the week it was for work. she was thinking the Coffee post went out on a Monday – when it didn’t… then she panicked about which day it was~
It took brain dead dievca thirty minutes to figure out the correct day of the week.
dievca’s Parents are alive – maybe not kicking hard, but still kicking. dievca is not kicking it.
Lisbon is a lot of walking on hills paved with cobblestones.
Gorgeous views, excellent wine, heat, plus a lot of people in August.
Avoiding the trams due to crowds
Age comes into it when you pull a hamstring and your hips/back step in to carry the load. Makes for a really hurting 7th day.
dievca is laying low, stretching and trying to get her muscles to relax before the flight on Sunday… Wish her luck. XO
Is it the tide? Is it a dry dock?
Or is it a big problema?

In a nutshell: Advice giving usually doesn’t work, and often completely backfires.
To be fair, we all find ways to tell others how to live. We can’t help it. We all have strong points of view and believe that others should do or think as we do. And most of us are comfortable expressing those views to others, whether they’re interested or not.
Yet, research using reactance theory informs us that whenever someone tells us what to do and how to do it, we respond with defensive defiance because we want to maximize our personal freedom and decision making.
If we really want to encourage behavior (or belief) change in others we actually need to move away from advice-giving (especially when our advice is unsolicited) and toward modeling. In other words, we need to be an example for others rather than telling them what to do.
Research on observational learning (in conjunction with an understanding of reactance theory) suggests that while people will resist unsolicited advice and instruction, they will follow the behaviors of others—especially when there appear to be good and reinforcing outcomes from these behaviors (or beliefs).
dievca is still going to give you her advice:
TRY ON YOUR PRESENTATION OUTFIT BEFORE SHOWING UP AT YOUR MASTER OR MISTRESS’ PLACE.
dievca ended up with a Corset Disaster, yesterday. It shrunk from handwashing and dievca’s boobs are running larger. All the hooks closed and she could pull the ties, but she looked like a muffin popping over the tin.
Master’s solution to dievca’s problem was easy:
“Try the outfit on before meeting for D/s”
dievca does plan to heed Master’s advice, will you plan to heed dievca’s advice?
dievca was setting up a Presentation Outfit for Master and couldn’t find the correct suspender belt. After 20 minutes of digging without success, she moved on to Presentation Outfit #2.
It was a repeat of a past Outfit, but it channeled the 2019 Summer Solstice!
dievca needed to wear nude stockings for three reasons:
- Master loves stockings
- Stockings allow easy access in a visually pleasing way
- dievca isn’t scheduled to be waxed until next week…..
Outfit Choice #2 was panning out nicely and dievca had some great shoes in mind!
Lanvin Chain-Embellished Stilettos from Summer 2010 — the sandals added a little heavy metal to cut the floral and lace sweetness.
dievca packed everything up, adding the gold play collar and lead. she made her way uptown to Master’s apartment.
When she arrived, dievca knelt before Master. They took a moment to connect and shift – then Master told dievca she had 5 minutes to change into His Presentation Outfit.
The timing worked well, all pieces of the Outfit slid-on easily, including the Lanvin Sandals.
It was when dievca tried to walk —
dievca never took into consideration that wearing stockings in open, strappy, leather sandals would be VERY slippery. she had to move at a shuffling mincing walk to make it back to Master. And when Master led dievca to the bedroom after Cock Worship. He guided her along with the lead at a good clip – she almost took herself and Him down! And the sound effects emitted from dievca’s mouth?
Not elegant, at all~
Master absolutely loved the heels, so they stayed on.
What’s the solution for next time?
(or grippy pads)
