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

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?


The Workhorses

Older, Extending, Taking extra weight.
These feet are the workhorses of dievca’s body.

Honestly, after sitting next to six Men

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:

Classy or Tacky? just a bit of fun! (Paul Smith)

Paul Smith Wallet

dievca was searching for a replacement wallet on eBay.  Her search term was “Paul Smith Wallet” and Paul Smith items with Naked Ladies on the interior kept popping up (Click Here) .
Is it tacky? cheeky? a bit of fun? or sleaze?
Whatever~ it made dievca laugh, though she doesn’t think Master would be interested.


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?

Repurposing a Caprese Salad – really. (Summertime Goodness)

Heirloom Tomatodievca had her first experience with ordering fruit and vegetables from Whole Foods.

Her knee is still gimpy and the stores around her are too close for a cab ride and too far for a walk on her knee. So, she ordered online and had it delivered.

Buying fruit and vegetables is more personal than pasta or milk, dievca made her choices and hoped for the best.  The shopper did pretty well.  The peaches were a bit riper than dievca buys and the two heirloom tomatoes were HUGE.  A single tomato barely fit into dievca’s hand.

The tomatoes needed to be used immediately, so dievca chopped BOTH of them into cubes combined them with a package fresh mozzarella pearls, then added fresh basil chopped with herb scissors, olive oil, red balsamic vinegar, and salt/pepper.

Fresh Mozarella Pearls

Multi blade Herb ScissorsMaster and dievca could only eat half the tossed salad, so dievca put the leftovers into the fridge for later.

When she pulled it out there was a lot of liquid and as a salad it didn’t appeal.

What to do?

Cod was on the menu within two days and dievca had seen recipes of Cod baked with tomatoes, so she decided to be creative.  dievca removed the mozzarella pearls from the leftover caprese salad and marinated the wild caught cod with the salad liquid, tomatoes and basil. She then baked the cod, including the tomatoes and liquid, at 400 F (205 C) for 15 min. (she started with 10 min, but the liquid didn’t look like it was evaporating enough so she went to 5 min more) When the cod came out of the oven she put the mozzarella pearls on top to melt and added a dash of lemon juice.

She served the cod, tomatoes and cheese over plain white rice with a side of sautéed fresh sugar snap peas.
(recipe below)

The meal was a success!

dievca thinks it worked because cod has a tendency to take on flavors very well.
she was very happy to use the rest of the heirloom tomatoes!

Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas inspired by the Pioneer Woman blog recipe:

Sugar snap peasIngredients
1 lb. sugar snap peas
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove of garlic minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Directions
  1. Snap the stem end of the peas; pull the string off of the length of the pod, and discard. (you may need to do both sides of the pea – dievca did)
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and oil swirl to coat the pan. Add the snap peas, salt, and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat. Add the butter and lemon juice and stir well to coat.

Tacky on a Friday = 1950’s Potty Humor

Once in awhile dievca runs into something just…in poor taste. It makes her roll her eyes and half smile.

Here is an offering for today (the link for the full book on reddit is down below).

Why did I read the whole book?

A Mature Moment – Modehus

dievca’s Swedish friend laughs at her because dievca always has to visit two stores in a small town.  One is an optical shop that sells great eyeglass frames and the second is, well, yeah – a “Mature Women’s” shop . A modehus that her friend does not step into unless dievca is visiting.  Let’s put it this way – dievca saw a pair of cropped pants in the store and then saw them on her friend’s Mother-in-Law an hour later.

Whatever.  dievca stops in because she always finds a gem.

Two trips ago, the gem was a dress made by a Danish designer upcycling vintage Sari silk.  dievca still wears the dress.  dievca bought a similar dress on her last trip, but she felt that the arms were too snug and she passed it on to her Dutch friend.  Her friend loves the dress so much and has worn it a number of times that she had to wash it.

dievca received this photo in response:

You have to appreciate a fabric care tag telling it like it is!

What did dievca buy this trip? 

Well, TWO pairs of eyeglass frames – but they will appear in another post and a “Made in Italy” linen top which was a tunic but dievca’s friend’s Mother cropped it for our short dievca:

and how are You?

20220628_112535

Years ago, dievca’s Mom had rotator cuff surgery.  The surgeon came out and said that it was much worse than he expected. Basically, he didn’t recognize her pain was legitimate when Mom stated it.

Once upon a time, dievca was an elite athlete.  Her sense of pain or toleration of pain is skewed.  Sometimes, she can’t judge if something is really bad because she’s pushed through the pain for so long. When she went to the orthopedic surgeon dievca was glad that her knee locked up on the examination table – it proved she wasn’t a lunatic. 

Apparently, when the surgeon got into her knee to remove the bone chips, he got more than he bargained for with the osteoarthritis of the knee cap and took the extra time to clean it up.  

So, was dievca like her Mother and her pain wasn’t taken seriously? Or has dievca been pushing through and couldn’t state her pain clearly because she might have read it wrong?

Anyways, dievca had a good night.  she’s taking the meds as directed – not desperate for them at all. Her leg can straighten, bend and take weight, the pain is in the quad more than the knee at this point.

Master asked her how she felt about the surgery – and she answered, “hopeful”.

OK, enough! dievca’s Mom always said its boring for other people to listen to your ailments~

Let’s switch – How are you?

A little knee humor for surgery day~

A slip of lace~

dievca has moved north to stay with friends in Scandinavia for the second week of her vacation.  she planned her packing around the option to do laundry at their house when she arrived.  Running a full load is better than a small load so she gathered clothing from the family to fill the washing machine.

The first load of colored clothing was ready to hang outside to dry, and a tiny thong slipped out:

to drop into dievca’s hand.  It’s from one of the daughters – who just got back from a trip to Spain with her boyfriend.  dievca just started laughing.  It’s been a long time, Babe, since dievca has worn such a tiny slip of lace. Ah, to be young, confident and tiny! XO


Magpie Nest

The internet at the Eco-Lodge is dodgy and weather dependent, which makes the sharing of photos and information tricky.  The photos dievca is sharing today are the ones she could download in a shorter period of time (40 min) – the store is in Viseu and was an oddity for the area. 

A store with a lot of bling and merchandise – a Magpie’s Nest.

Cheeseburger in Paradise 🍔

Master will be rolling His eyes this morning – but Presenting would be a good bit of fun as a Cheeseburger with Jimmy Buffet in the background.

Eat a little Meat…a sensual treat!


Jimmy Buffet would roll through dievca’s hometown every summer and it was an easy concert to get to ~ ~ outdoor seating and cheesy fun. 🧀

Holy Cats Batman!  It appears that Jimmy Buffet is still performing!  A full Summer Roster of Concerts!

Go, Jimmy, Go!

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
