Lunching with Master

Anthropologie Somerset Maxi in Dark Purple

Master is taking His dievca to the Met and to lunch for her Birthday.
she has to work in the morning, but will head uptown afterward.
dievca is planning on wearing her Anthropologie Somerset Maxi Dress in Dark Purple. It will allow her to wear comfortable shoes, look ladylike, and hide her knee brace if she needs to wear it.

Master said He would like to finish the day at His apartment, so dievca is bringing Him peach crumble as a treat during Aftercare.
It turned out well!

Assessing the Practicalities

Master has a check-up scheduled,
do you think this is how the conversation will go?


Laying low today~

black catdievca is a walking mess this morning. she went to the Chicago Cubs/New York Mets game last night and got home late. That lack of sleep has made this day slightly dangerous (almost got hit on the bike, hit a pothole, almost slammed by the elevator doors, tripped on some stairs, etc.) – so she is lying low. Taking it easy. Nothing is a rush. She will try again tomorrow.

Hah!

So Master dropped His dievca a note:

Re: Music.
 
Here’s an early 1980’s song that I really like: the essence of garage rock.

 
On the whole, I’m not a “pop” guy.
dievca – who attended College in the 80’s was a little confused…this song was on Airplay ALL the time. Isn’t that the definition of Pop (Popular) Music? smile

Silly Love Songs, etc…

Master laughs at His dievca’s music – she’s mentioned this previously.
she doesn’t understand why…
Who doesn’t like Cheesy Love Songs, 70’s Suave Grooves, 80’s Electronica, Classic Rock, Eurotrash?
Harumph!
Music should be — uhhh — accessible.
Right?

First Day of School

Sexy Teacher

It’s the First Day of School here in NYC.
Kids are either celebrating or bemoaning their fate.
Maybe the Teachers are, too~

Halloween is coming up soon – a little Cosplay “Hot for Teacher” anyone?

PS. Does anyone have Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” in their head?


Still traveling:


Enjoy the Holiday

What does Labor mean in the United States?
Where are we?

Why do I find myself sad after all the uncomfortable misery?

Master always says he would never get anything done working in my apartment –
he would be too busy watching the World roll by.

Recombobulation

John was bck from extended leave, but he hadn't quite got in the swing of things yet.

dievca is working this Saturday – just a little bit… she’ll be going full blast in September and expects to be a little discombobulated.

She’ll need this in her Life:

Hurrah!
Maybe she’ll wear lipstick for her workouts.

Jump NYC

dievca: NYC graffiti 08/2015

dievca is off of the electric scooter (borrowed from a friend),
back on to her bike (hills are tough),
walking upstairs (not down),
and moving more freely.
But JUMPING?
Not quite – unless its in her water aerobics class.

How are you doing?


a sad favorite

Olivia Newton-John passed away yesterday.  she seemed like a very kind individual and dievca was prompted to revisit her music.  dievca’s favorite song from her is pretty much the saddest song.

dievca prefers the original:


Well, that’s mouthful!

Looks like you would have to be left-handed to come at this the right way. XO


Getting Trippy~

Every once in awhile, dievca has flashback memories of movies or TV shows she saw as a young child  in the 1970’s.  As she tries to pin down the memories — they swirl and seem to take her on a psychedelic trip. Her brain hurts.  Does anyone else remember?

Hitting the Highway

Routes across the USA

And thinking of you!

The Map above is suggesting ways to see the USA — some are the roads (#10 – Route 66) and others are routes trasversing the United States via multiple routes using Moon Travel Guides. With air travel being a great challenge – maybe splurging on a car trip might be an option for Summer Travel.

Lazy Summer

Margo Robbie British Vogue“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
