It’s a Whiteout!

Whiteoutwhite-out, or milky weather is a weather condition in which the contours and landmarks in a snow-covered zone become almost indistinguishable.


Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho! a Winter’s drive I go~

Hitting the Highway and Thinking of You!

dievca’s Mom kept getting anonymous postcards from around the country when she was a young gal. The tagline on each of them was the phrase above. She never found out who sent them.

So, dievca is hitting the highway and making her way to her Momma. Her Mom might not last too long, so now is the time. she’s bringing that black Burberry Cashmere coat she bought when the Hudson Yards Neiman Marcus closed (September) – her Mom was asking to see it.
Once a Style Maven – always a Style Maven.
dievca has so many clothes she would love to share with her Mom – her Mom isn’t tracking too well. That’s why the Burberry coat request, as ridiculous as it seems, is very important.

OK, hitting the highway and thinking of you. XO

You can take the dievca out

of the Midwest, but you can’t take the Midwest out of the dievca.

Such a simple thing to make someone so happy during a sh*tty time.

A few flakes of snow and dievca is ready to go~

There seems to be a snow theme going on here at the blog. Amazing what the kiss of  a flake can do.


A Toasty Cup and off to work…


The NY City Kids have a “Snow” Day – dievca does not…
she does have a later start time.

May you have a later start time, too.
XO

PS. dievca won’t be riding her bike.


The first snow of 2018 and something of use.

Yes, dievca knows that there was snow in January and February 2018 – but there was snow already on the ground from 2017….

This is the first snow of Autumn.

It’s now become a wet rain/sleet mix – a mess. Walking to work and home entails carrying items in the mess and dievca isn’t known for remembering umbrellas. Her suggestion for getting by is a water-resistant backpack. And the gold standard, by far, has been her Patagonia Black Hole 26L Pack.
she has two colors:

Paintbrush

Beryl Green

Let’s just say if you are going to give up space in a NYC apartment for a second water-resistant backpack…it better be good.

(Now, dievca understands the true space-saving way would be to have just one black water-resistant backpack – but the colored ones act as reflective colors on the bike or walking. Duality.)

Winter continues….

Did someone say something about Spring?
Master brought the snow back with Him.


Update ~

Flying in, I hear that the anti-seizure drip kicked in – much better than having to make  a breathing tube decision. Especially when your Dad emphatically stated “no tubes”…

I arrive and drive straight to the hospital. It’s 9:30 pm on a Saturday in the Midwest, the emergency room is almost empty and I have to wander through a labyrinth to find the Neuro ICU.

…arriving to someone who can open his eyes and someone who can’t get their words out, but knows where the toilet is and gets the message across clearly by sliding to the edge of the bed, then stands/walks (shuffles) with moderate+ help and does the bm business well in a semi-private mode.  (my Dad will kill himself not to use a pan, apparently) Things are looking up!

It reminds me of M being sick and being so happy when he had a moment, too. It’s a basic action in Life that sets the tune for self-care in sickness and in health.

non-sexual gratification via scat

Now, as I look out on 6+ inches (15.2 cm) of new snow and drinking coffee, I’m devising a plan for getting my Mom “with it”.

Argh! I just realized it’s still snowing. OMG, my Dad still has my snowblower from when I lived in the Midwest. Time to ask for neighborly help with clearing the driveway.

dievca’s reference to “scat play” is something she and Master are not into – but BM’s are a part of our health and something dievca is learning to be fascinated with in regards to health….a fact of a healthy Life.

If you were curious about scat play in regards to BDSM, here’s information via Wiki:

Coprophilia (from Greek κόπρος, kópros—excrement and φιλία, philía—liking, fondness), also called scatophilia or scat (Greek: σκατά, skatá-feces),

is the paraphilia involving sexual arousal and pleasure from feces. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, it is classified under 302.89 – Paraphilia NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) and has no diagnostic criteria other than a general statement about paraphilias that says “the diagnosis is made if the behavior, sexual urges, or fantasies cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning”. Furthermore, the DSM-IV-TR notes, “Fantasies, behaviors, or objects are paraphilic only when they lead to clinically significant distress or impairment (e.g. are obligatory, result in sexual dysfunction, require participation of non-consenting people, lead to legal complications, interfere with social relationships)”.

Although there may be no connection between coprophilia and sadomasochism (SM), the limited data on the former comes from studies of the latter. A study of 164 men in Finland from two SM clubs found that 18.2% had engaged in coprophilia; 3% as a sadist, 6.1% as a masochist, and 9.1% as both. 18% of heterosexuals and 17% of homosexuals in the study pool had tried coprophilia, showing no statistically significant difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals. In a separate article analyzing 12 men who engaged in bestiality, an additional analysis of an 11-man subgroup revealed that 6 had engaged in coprophilic behavior, compared with only 1 in the matched control group consisting of 12 SM-oriented males who did not engage in bestiality.
