dievca normally buys Holiday Gifts throughout the year. This year, she is running a bit late….hence the Christmas Gift Post for Him on December 15th. All of the items on this page can be bought at Amazon and have Prime shipping available. Hope this list helps you out. XO

swhen dievca was in College she lived in an older dorm that had deep oak window frames/casings which went up almost to the 12 foot ceilings. After doing laundry at 3:00 am, she stood on the sofa and when that didn’t work, the windowsill, to hang up a sweatshirt on a hanger to dry from the window rod.
she slipped, she fell, she sounded like an elephant when she ricocheted off the window ledge hitting the right side of her back thigh, she hit the floor, she woke her roommate. The bruising was huge and you can still feel the ledge-shaped divet in her muscle/fat…yep, just checked – still there.
What dievca learned is that you should own decent step ladders, AND USE THEM!
Her NYC apartment doesn’t have ceilings quite as high as her dorm room, but they reach 9 feet in some areas. That makes painting a wall without an extension pole a little too much for dievca – but with the 3 step-ladder? A snap!
Something that has traveled with dievca from space to space are the two Cosco Step Ladders from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The two-step and three-step versions:
At $29.99 and $39.99 — an excellent and useful buy. They fit behind opened doors or in closets.
When getting on in age, the bruises don’t fade as fast and braking a bone is a more likely option~

As dievca and Master were traversing Midtown to get some Holiday Photos, lo and behold they ran into some Really Big Balls… Master got on to a roll of quips that had dievca in stitches and, of course, dievca couldn’t remember any of them for today’s post.
So, she asked Master if he remembered what he said:
“In New York City, even the buildings have big balls.”
“If you have big balls, you don’t need to show them.”
Would you mind giving my balls a quick polish?
Size up those balls, Boys!
Not as delicious as Schweddy Balls.
On their Christmas show, NPR hosts Margaret Jo McCullin (Ana Gasteyer) and Terry Rialto (Molly Shannon) welcome baker Pete Schweddy (Alec Baldwin) to “The Delicious Dish” to discuss his famous holiday dessert: Schweddy balls. [Season 24, 1998]
Do you have any good quips?
Thinking of you.

There was a good 2-3 minutes of panic.
dievca hasn’t cleaned and seasoned her new and larger espresso maker (6 Cup Alessi Moka), she was thanking the gods that she still has the little guy with the melted handle.
Love to you, may your coffee come early and excellent.
