Which item of clothing shows off the A** best?

Polka Dot Dress
Actually, it’s not desperate.
dievca’s Mom had a bath at Noon (it takes two people) and that wiped her out until dievca woke her at 4:55 pm. Why 4:55 pm? Because her Mom insisted that Jane Eyre would be on TV at 5:00 pm… Yes, it was on – because dievca downloaded it onto the tablet from Amazon Prime.
(dievca’s brother canceled cable TV)
dievca fed her Mom dinner and watched the 2011 version with her – good acting, but it is a sad movie.
Big Band Music to pick up the mood while getting Mom ready for bed and now dievca is seeking wine.
There is no wine to be had ~ hence the appropriate t-shirt graphic.
(Wine is on the grocery list for tomorrow.) 😉
As dievca is pulling items out for a Christmas Dinner with friends, she realized that this
Crate & Barrel serving platter has been in her life for about 30 years. It’s a piece that has a lot of mileage on it and still looks lovely. The bonus is that the removable dip container can be refilled without moving the whole server and it cleans up easily.
Do you use or need something similar?
dievca was curious if Crate & Barrel still offered this item — No.
she saw it on resale sites (apparently others did not find it as useful or broke the dip holder…)
The closest items she found on the Crate & Barrel website and in stores are:
Dip piece is attached….no ease of refilling. Dishwasher safe, though.
Close, but that dip bowl will move around as people use it.
Lovely – but glass? dievca would break something within the next 30 years.
So, it looks like dievca will stay with her old favorite! 😉

dievca deferred once because of the business trip to Europe in the Summer (and the side trip to Normandy, afterward). she has to show up today. It doesn’t go away easily. (Caregiver, lack of English, Medical Issues)
If you are an American or someone from another country who wants to review what the Grand Jury is – here is a nice article describing the NYC experience (click here). dievca cannot confirm or deny until she shows up today.
And, yes, she served on a regular trial jury about 6 years ago….yeahhhhh. Purse snatch.
A cup of coffee would be great, right about now.
