The 4:30 am solution

If the K-Cup coffee offered is terrible — here’s a solution for the 4:30 am coffee need.

The view works for a lovely wake up moment, too.

Good Morning from Your dievča.


Working the thru the weekend…


Or the other way around~
Anyone else in the same boat?


Walk with me in my ‘hood…

Is Master on to something?

Master has turned in His French Press for……

THE PERFECT COFFEEMAKER?

Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Chemistry invented the Chemex in 1941. He developed more than 300 product patents while in pursuit of making everyday objects more functional, beautiful, and pleasing to use. As a chemist, he had a strong understanding of coffee extraction which allowed him to apply his pursuit to coffee-making. Made from non-porous borosilicate glass and utilizing bonded paper filters the Chemex brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. (Doesn’t it look like an Erlenmeyer Flask?)

THE CLAIM TO PERFECTION

The Chemex company website makes the following claim: “The Chemex® coffeemaker, together with the Chemex-Bonded® Coffee Filter, makes perfect coffee. Clear, pure, flavorful and without bitterness or sediment every time.” Siting the use of the scientifically designed glass and proprietary filters, the Chemex brews a coffee with a distinct purity that allows it to be covered and stored in the fridge without losing flavor.

Should dievca give up her beloved French Press
and follow in Her Master’s Footsteps?

Oh, its stressing her out just thinking about changing….
and something that takes more time?


A daily reminder of loveliness~

If your BDSM dynamic runs toward bondage with ropes or Shibari.
Some lovely drawer pulls might float you back into elegance, everyday.

Staycation

stay·ca·tion

ˌstāˈkāSHn/
noun informal
a vacation spent in one’s home country and not abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.

Four days off – count ’em.
Four days!

I should go to my Mom and Dad,
and I’m not.
I will not let Catholic guilt creep in.

I love the City during Memorial Day – everyone leaves!

As I sit here, wiggling my toes – eating Cheerios. I am….happy.

Today, I’ll head to the gym and then up to Master’s for lunch, I have a cousin coming from the Midwest for the weekend – but they have a packed schedule.

Singing “Yippieee!” as I sip my coffee.

I hope you are looking forward to Memorial Day Weekend or your Bank Holiday Weekend.

PS. Here’s a couple of photos from the Boat Ride.


Flowers & the Sun = Good Morning!

Master bought His dievca peonies.
A Midwestern treat in the City.
Don’t have to shake off the ants.
$12.00 per three buds.

dievca’s Mom asked the Home Aid to take and send a photo of the Iris’ in their garden.
Purple. Beautiful.
Lovely to be thought of.
dievca’s favorite flower.

The sun finally came out at the end of the day, yesterday.
And today is supposed to be nice.
dievca will be taking a nap on the rooftop.
Master can’t make it…
