You can wake up slowly.
Grab a lovely coffee:
Go to work or spend the day reading. Maybe get some furniture for your new apartment:
Watch the sunset:
Have Mussels for dinner with a Lambic Beer, share Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Sauce:
Walk the food off, carrying the leftovers. Enjoy a simple moment before heading to sleep.
I wish for you to have a nice day, too. XO
food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking.
Sexy, it is not, but sometimes your Sir/Madame (and yourself) need to be served and warmed via childhood memories. Traveling the World or dealing with Family/ Work stress: Midwestern Meat and Potatoes comes as comfort. (That’s what dievca’s Brother says~)
dievca’s Basic MeatLoaf:
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or 2 cups soft bread crumbs (4 pieces)
1/2 finely chopped medium onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf sage, basil, or oregano, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef, lamb, or pork
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
In a large bowl combine everything. dievca uses her hands to mix. Lightly pat mixture into a dome shape or use a 9×5 loaf pan.
Bake in a 350 degree F (175C) oven for 1.5 hours or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F (70C).Add ketchup to the top as a glaze in the last 10 minutes.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes:
In a casserole dish, mix together potatoes, olive oil, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes at 350F/175C or until the potatoes are tender.
If you want crispier skins, roast at 425F/ 220C.
Add a small salad to even out the heart attack factors and be cozy while eating.
Lose the stress. XO
Voila! Serving in a different way.
from dievca’s home to yours. 🏙
Here I sit in my bower of fog
sipping my coffee
in this giant City
I lived in Iceland during a past life and one of the greatest Joys was seeing the views change in the fjords with the weather. I became obsessed. It’s happening again with my new vista (modern definition).
Watching the weather roll in over the Hudson River is becoming a great Joy.

Is one of your favorite things to kneel before your Master or Madame?
Offering yourself or seeking release from the day?
dievca’s shoulders relax and she finds home kneeling in front of Master,
while He is sitting in His chair.
The Mid-Century Modern Wenger Papa Bear (Teddy Bear) Chair:
dievca has moved and her furniture doesn’t work in the new space, so she is on the look out for a pair of new armchairs, coffee table, stools, bench, etc. Currently, she has a large aubergine Contempo Design leather chair for Master. It’s too bulky. she needs something lighter more open and she went looking for a pair of armchairs, yesterday.
Unknowingly, her tastes ran towards the Wegner Classic 290 Easy Chair!
But, at a $2700 price tag, each – she had to look at similar options at lower prices:
and ended up with:
Apparently both Master and dievca admire Wenger chairs.
dievca is hoping that Master will find His place in the new armchairs
with His dievca kneeling before Him.
Hans J. Wenger
As a driving force behind ‘Danish Modern’, Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public’s view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title ‘the Master of the Chair’. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness.
To dievca’s new apartment, using her mid-century modern glassware:
Will you join her?
Nancy Sinatra had it right, find the right boots that are made for walking the City (or beyond).
Master always says that NYC Women depend on their boots heavily to get them through the City. dievca’s sorting through her boots and making some decisions, she’ll be sharing what she is looking at her soon! XO
