The idiom: Сенің арқаңда күн көріп жүрмін
Literal translation: “I see the sun on your back.”
What it means: “Thank you for being you. I am alive because of your help.”
Everyone needs a little help.
People have different needs.
Don’t assume because you are strong and I am strong that we have no needs.
I see the sun on your back.
You see the sun on mine.
Not one of Master’s favorite bands,
but Chicago is a favorite of dievca’s
and the song is appropriate after 3+ weeks of Master’s travel.
Have a good Mellow Monday.
Every 4 years THE HAT comes out to be worn for two weeks.
It’s the same version of the 2010 Winter Olympics Hat that Lindsey Vonn was photographed in during Vancouver…and sits in a small NYC apartment, unused, except for 14 days every 4 years.
After 20,160 minutes*3 Olympics…it needs dry cleaning.
Beyond wearing the hat, dievca tries to watch as many Olympic Sporting Events as she can. Including:
- The amazing talented and in-shape Norwegian Skiers
- Women’s Hockey Gold Medal Game
- American Women winning the CC Team Sprint
- The Dutch Speed Skating Powerhouses
- Nathan Chen falling apart, then getting it together.
- North Korean Cheerleaders
- Etc., Etc., Etc.
- As dievca writes this, speed skating is on.
Something beyond watching the Olympic Games at home and with friends, has been the media posts:
Lindsey Vonn lost to this Snowboarder turned Downhill Skier, Ester Ledecka, from the Czech Republic, who celebrated with KFC:

So as dievca packs to get to her Dad, tomorrow — THE HAT will be taken off and placed in the dry cleaning pile. Wearing THE HAT and watching the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics has brought a lot of Joy to dievca during a rough two-week period. Isn’t it ridiculous how silly things can make one so happy. Ah, well…I am a simple dievca. 😘
dievca is curvy.
That makes wearing certain styles a trick. And normally, dievca just avoids those styles.
a 1960’s Go-Go mini-skirt shift dress:
It is a style dievca avoids….
until she saw Master looking at a museum exhibition of them with fondness.
Obviously, the fashion holds some great memories for Him.
So, now she has taken on the Go-Go Dress as a Presentation Outfit for Master.
dievca plans to buy one and get it altered to her curves as best as possible
or she might have a friend make her a dress with a vintage pattern.
Then it will be the quest for Go-Go Boots.
Poufy hair and cat eyes are not a problem.
Add a little groovy music and maybe dievca will swing her Master’s memories back here:
“Very often in the old fashion style of dancing, we may not feel particularly in a romantic mood and yet, very often, our partner would grab us and dance very close and hold us so closely – and I like this because, your know, we can completely keep it arms length and dance however we please, and ah – I really like that.”
Hopefully, Master will dance with His dievca at arms length
and then invite her to sit on His lap.
Perhaps His hands will wander up her mini-skirt.
We will see!
The Dog is the eleventh of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. After, they set off to the party together. Because they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country. Thus, Dog became eleventh.
The Dog is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī)xū (戌), and the hours 7–9 in the evening. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Dog is yang.
In China, it is still popular to name dogs Wàng Cái (旺财). It means “prosperous wealth” and comes from dogs’ barking sounds (旺旺—wàng wàng).
Personality and characteristics
A Dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work.
Honest and just, they are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. They are also good at helping others find and fix their bad habits.
Despite how they act, they are worried and anxious inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it.
(dievca is a Monkey — she and M are listed as “least compatible”…)
