dievca lives in an older building (late 1920’s) with cinder block walls. she’s not too worried about noise because her neighbors have minimal wall contact and she hasn’t heard anything above or below her.
Master’s building is about the same age…but for some reason you can hear a bit more~ It’s not that His space is larger – His bedroom doesn’t share a wall with neighbors. It’s the floor.
Either His neighbors clomp around or you can hear more easily…
It doesn’t help that they are a bit….uptight and there may be some, ummm, physical issues.
They travel quite a bit, so most of the time Master doesn’t care about sound carrying. Once in a while, He does make an effort…usually after we forget and a “pointed” comment was made by the lady. That’s when the ball gag comes out.
Do you rouse the neighbors or do they rouse you?

Go Topless Day encourages women (and the fellas!) to proudly bare their chests and march through Manhattan, while showing their support for gender equality. NYC legally allows women to be topless, but for full safety, police will block off the parade route. And it’s only fitting that the body-positive event takes place 48-hours after Women’s Equality Day on Saturday, August 26, 2017 (the day women were first given the right to vote in 1920). For more information, check out the official Go Topless Day website.
On one of those gorgeous Summer Days in the City with the temperature around 80F (27C) and low humidity. (Why dievca lives in NYC)
dievca took a break to watch the World roll by on the Hudson River.
It was beautiful, but what really made her smile was that the River has traffic, too. Can’t get away from it. In a 10 minute period, dievca got 4 helicopters, 3+ ferries, a cruise ship, a tug, some pleasure boats, 5 sailboats (in a row – sailing school?), a barge, etc. she decided to take pictures after 5 minutes in and here’s what she got~ Enjoy!
PS. she didn’t realize that Master owned a tugboat – until she saw His mark.

Remember when dievca told you that she was off her game with planning outfits? After her panic, she’s be trying to get it together – especially with Master coming home.
There were two events left. dievca still had to dress up and felt like the situations warranted Master’s opinion. So, she sent him an e-mail with photo options and took His advice to heart. The only problem was one dress that Master chose (Etro, multi-colored silk) – still hadn’t been found….so dievca slid in another option. BTW – that dress? dievca finally found it in the last place she could look after the Party…. Sigh.
Wedding in the Vineyards of Long Island:
Raoul of Singapore “Breeze” cotton-blend Dress with:
Valentino Nude Heels, Swarovski Crystal minaudiere, SlimMe Shaping slip, Chloe Sunglasses, Vintage Mesh Buckle Bracelet, Green Drop Earrings
The dress worked well, especially since it went from a Catholic Mass to dressy evening with no convenience of changing. dievca felt great in it. (she thinks her curves work better with the dress, rather than the model in the photo…)
The Surprise Birthday Party was held at a chic bar in Brooklyn Heights. dievca was tired from work and couldn’t find the dress Master suggested — so she went breezy and casual:
Sundance Magritte Silk Chiffon Dress with:
Barneys nude Sandals, Liebeskind Navy leather backpack, vintage mesh buckle cuff, Giorgio Armani sunglasses
Both outfits worked and will be in the mix for other activities this Summer. Good to know that dievca is getting it back together and mentally shifting to set-up Presentation Outfits for Master (she knows that Master will want dievca on His arm in the Raoul dress — its His favorite lady-like look).

New Jersey Transit is currently a mess.
New Jersey Drivers are dangerous.
Because New Jersey Transit is a mess, there are more people from New Jersey driving in NYC.
As a biker…this affects dievca, directly.
One morning, dievca almost got hit by a NJ driver who had stepped on the gas through a changing light…and tried to swipe her instead of going into the other lane. Then proceeded to yell out his window that what dievca was doing was illegal (mind you the cops directing traffic see dievca riding her bike to work multiple times a day and know that she is hyper-aware – plus she follows the rules of the road, treating her bike as a vehicle).
dievca, in her stupidity, pedaled hard next to his car and yelled back through his window,
“If you cannot afford to live in the City, don’t drive in the City”.
she has been dying to say that to one of the idiotic NJ drivers for a long time.
His reply was lost at the West Side Highway crossing…
All smug, dievca moved on to the Hudson River Pathway….
and managed to swallow a bug.
A fitting ending for an ignoramus.
(Really, arguing with a NJ driver – who won’t get it and is stuck driving into the City because the NJ Transit is a mess and dievca setting herself up to do something stupid or get killed is not the smartest thing she has done in her Life….the bug proved that. But honest to goodness, it felt good to say that snarky comment for 5 seconds at 5:30 am before she ate the bug.)
PS. A little extra protein in Life never hurts.
The Gay Pride Parade for NYC kicks off at 12:00 Noon.
Begins at 36th and 5th and ends at Christopher and Greenwich Streets.
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
dievca isn’t planning to join the Parade, but she will be wearing something “Rainbow” in support:
