dievca had a large project to complete by 11:59 PST – she made it and slept in to 6:30 am this morning. Watching the dawn break across the city is a cozy experience. she’s wearing the fourth rendition of inexpensive Afghan Slipper Socks and thinking of her family.
dievca bought three pairs from Pier One in college as gifts for her Mom, her Aunt and herself. She wore out her pair, wore out her Aunt’s pair (taken when her Aunt died from Cancer) and wore out her Mom’s when Mom could no longer wear them because of slipping.
A 30 year process.
Pier One stores have closed and the J. Crew rendition ripped in the heel after 3 years. dievca didn’t know where to get her next pair of slippers…until she looked on Etsy!
Back to the OG!

Marshmallow Fluff FudgePosted: December 17, 2022 Filed under: Home and Garden | Tags: baking, BDSM, D/s, dievca, Food, Fudge, Holiday 2022, Life, Love, Marshmallow, Mom, sharing, work Leave a comment
dievca’s Mom was a HUGE fan of Marshmallow Fluff or anything marshmallow. dievca used the “Fluff” recipe for Fudge when she asked what baking people wanted for the Holidays – they requested fudge. Argh! dievca is really out of practice and doesn’t have the correct size pans. Whatever, she made do~ it tastes fantastic, but a little goes a loooong way.

Never Fail Fudge
- 7½ oz jar Marshmallow Fluff
- 2½ cups sugar
- ¾ tsp salt
- ½ stick butter or margarine
- 5 oz evaporated milk
- ¾ tsp vanilla
- 12 oz (~2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate pieces
- ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. In large saucepan combine first 5 ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Increase heat to medium and bring to a full-rolling boil being careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Boil slowly, stirring constantly, 3½ – 5 minutes to the soft ball stage*. Remove from heat, stir in semi-sweet chocolate pieces until they are melted. Stir in vanilla. Add nuts. Turn into greased pan and cool. Makes 2½ pounds.
*The soft ball stage is a test to see if the fudge has been cooked to the proper stage. Before you start cooking, fill a small dish with ice water and set aside. After you have brought the recipe to a full boil for 3½ minutes, dribble a few drops of the mixture into the ice water from a wooden spoon. After it cools in the water (about 10 seconds), you should be able to roll it into small ball with your finger tips. If you put it in your mouth, it will be slightly chewy. If it passes these tests, you are done and should remove the mixture from heat and add the remaining ingredients. Otherwise, cook for another 30 seconds and try the test again. Most of the time, cooking time will not exceed 5 minutes.
Hint: As with all fudge recipes, cooking time will vary depending on factors such as humidity, altitude, and cooktop temperature.

A Mature Moment – ModehusPosted: July 8, 2022 Filed under: Clothing, Dresses, Relationships | Tags: aging, BDSM, D/s, dievca, friendship, girlfriends, Humor, Life, Love, sharing, Shopping, travel Leave a comment
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:
It looks clean and crisp with white jeans and the Zimmerman sandals:

A delightful find ~ Radio GardenPosted: February 17, 2021 Filed under: Entertainment | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, fun, internet radio, Life, Love, music, sharing, submissive Leave a comment
Radio Garden (click on the green heading above) is a non-profit Dutch radio and digital research project developed from 2013 to 2016, by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, by the Transnational Radio Knowledge Platform, and five other European universities. It is funded by HERA.
Within Radio Garden, radios are arranged by geolocation and grouped by cities. According to specialized websites, the design is formed by greenish spheres superimposed on the map, which increases in size as the region’s number of broadcasters available. This idea was developed by the German companies Studio Puckey and Studio Moniker in partnership with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Radios are available at locations such as Aleppo, Havana, Sri Lanka, London, North Korea, in addition to New York, Lisbon, Moscow, etc.
On 14 March 2020 a new version, with upgraded features, was released.
dievca may be a little late to the Party – but she is up for a lot of fun!

“las personas que amas se vuelven fantasmas dentro de ti y así los mantienes en vida”
I think of all the people I have touched and those who have touched me. Their memories swirl in my brain, clear or distorted, but they are there. Especially, those I have loved-whom I still love because they shared something special with me. The beauty doesn’t go away. Ghosts.
Yet, I am always surprised when someone keeps the ghost of me in them and the call from the blue confirms their memories. It never fails to amaze and make me smile. You never know how you will touch someone.
Good Morning! Always a lovely way….Posted: October 8, 2018 Filed under: D/s Relationship, Entertainment, Vintage | Tags: 1950's Household Kink, BDSM, coffee, cozy, D/s, Life, Love, Monday, sharing, submissive 2 Comments

Luminaria – NYC stylePosted: December 24, 2017 Filed under: Entertainment, Home and Garden | Tags: BDSM, Christmas Eve, D/s, dievca, Family, Life, NYC, photo, sharing, submissive, tradition, Winter 5 Comments
Traditional Christmas Eve luminarias are said to originate from the merchants of Spain. They were impressed with Chinese paper lanterns and decided to make their own version when they returned to New Spain; particularly during the Christmas season.
Luminarias are made from brown paper bags partially filled with sand to weigh them down and hold a candle. The bags are then illuminated from within by a lit candle. The bags are sometimes arranged in rows to create large and elaborate displays. Sometimes they line the sides of a driveway or sidewalk. The hope among Roman Catholics is that the lights will guide the spirit of the Christ child to one’s home.
Every year, dievca and her Dad would battle the Midwest snow, wind, rain, etc. to put the luminarias down the driveway. Some years it was gorgeous and worked well and others ~ a messy disaster. It was always attempted to make dievca’s Mother happy. “If Momma ain’t happy, ain’t no ‘body happy.”
I guess dievca could line her fire escape with the luminaria, but it wouldn’t be the safest thing — falling through the slats… Instead, she will light her candles to welcome Christmas with about 10 friends. Buddhist, Jewish, Agnostic, Catholic – doesn’t matter – its sharing. Some friends will stop for a drink, others will stay until they head out to Midnight Mass – but all are without Family on Christmas Eve – so we make our own.
You are welcome to join us.
Just look for dievca’s candlelight to guide your way.
