Ava Gardner soaks up the sun while shooting Pandora and the Flying Dutchman in 1951.
A turnsole is a type of plant that turns with the movement of the sun, a sunflower being the most famous example. From Middle French tournesol, the word literally means “turns toward the sun,” and was modeled after the synonymous Greek term heliotrope. As in French, when the word came into English in the 1300s it initially referred to the purple dye that came from a turnsole plant (Chrozophora tinctoria.). Soon after, turnsole broadened in meaning to refer to all types of plant that turn with the sun.
Is a Human a “turnsole” when he/she faces the sun to welcome its healing heat? Or is the definition only for plants. All dievca knows is that she is seeking the sun this Spring, like a sun-worshipping goddess.

Several groups of researchers from different countries have found that the sickest patients often have the lowest levels of vitamin D and that countries with higher death rates had larger numbers of people with vitamin D deficiency than countries with lower death rates.
Note: The early research is not yet peer-reviewed, and other experts say the scientific proof is lacking that vitamin D could prevent COVID-19 or make the infection milder.
dievca is getting her Vitamin D early and away from as many humans as possible for the following reason:
remonstrate with or rebuke (someone) angrily.
a person, in particular a woman, who nags or grumbles constantly.
Two women in full PPE suits and masks, power-walking in the middle of the road at Central Park scold the biker (15 feet away) for not wearing a mask.
Warning – the scolds are out, do not respond, and move away quickly. It could turn dangerous in more ways than one.

Lisbon is a lot of walking on hills paved with cobblestones.
Gorgeous views, excellent wine, heat, plus a lot of people in August.
Avoiding the trams due to crowds
Age comes into it when you pull a hamstring and your hips/back step in to carry the load. Makes for a really hurting 7th day.
dievca is laying low, stretching and trying to get her muscles to relax before the flight on Sunday… Wish her luck. XO
“How did you get so tan with working long days?”
It doesn’t take me much.
A little sun here, a little sun there
and an hour of being naked on the Terrace for two days took care of my ass.
(Do you think Master will appreciate the lack of tan lines on my ass?) Read the rest of this entry »
A swimsuit coverup is a lightweight garment which is designed to be worn over a swimsuit to protect the modesty of the wearer, provide shelter from the sun to limit exposure to harmful UV radiation, keep swimmers warm when they are out of the water and allow swimmers to transition from the beach/pool to the streets or a casual restaurant with ease. Swimsuit coverups are sold by most companies which make swimsuits, and they are often readily available in beach towns.
The defining characteristic of a swimsuit coverup is that it is designed to be easily removed so that it can be taken off to swim. As a result, many coverups are loose, and they may be elasticized or tied for rapid removal. Buttons are unusual, as are zippers or snaps, which can rust if they are often exposed to water. Some swimsuit coverups are simply made from stretchy material like a jersey knit which is easy to pull on and off, with no straps or ties needed. (Myla London Swimsuits and Jersey Cover-ups below)
Sarongs and related wraps are commonly used as swimsuit coverups, as are caftans, loose flowing robes of Middle Eastern origin. (Melissa Odabash Pareo)
Some companies make tunics which can be used as swimsuit coverups, and it is also possible to find sundresses which are designed to be worn over swimsuits, especially bikinis. Most swimsuit coverups are made for women; men usually wear board shorts and t-shirts if they want to cover up. (Loup Charmant Sundress)
Some women like to wear a swimsuit coverup for reasons of modesty, or because they do not want to attract attention at the beach; many women are self-conscious in public about areas of their body which are normally concealed, such as the stomach and upper thighs.
Others may use coverups which tend to show more than they hide – as a Fashion Statement. Though it’s not uncommon to view coverups as practical pieces, too. Some people use a swimsuit coverup to get warm up after a swim or to cut exposure to the sun.
When selecting a swimsuit coverup, it can be a good idea to wear the swimsuit to make sure that the garments go well together. It’s also a good idea to find a garment which can breathe and be washed and dried in a machine, and a garment which will resist crumpling or look great with wrinkles (Cotton Gauze).
dievca finds coverups a fun piece of lingerie to purchase – they are comfortble, of nice fabrics and represent the Joy of hitting the beach or going swimming.
Can you tell dievca is desperate for the Sun?

While waiting for my Master to arrive at my apartment, I fell asleep on my belly. I must have looked like a starfish, all spread out in the sun. His Collar and Cuffs were on at His request.
Master had let himself in and must have quietly connected the straps to the corners of my bed and gently connected the straps to the ankle cuffs. I didn’t wake up until he place a vibrator directly on my clit. At that moment, I tried to roll over and my spread legs wouldn’t let me, Master said, “Stay on your belly” and used the vibrator to cause an orgasm.
I felt lube drip on to my ass and Master worked it into my asshole with his finger. He popped in an anal plug, then left to wash his hands.
” Get on your hands and suck me, dievca”, I worshiped His cock in that awkward spread position until it was hard.
Master placed two pillows under my hips, grabbed my ass and plunged into my wet pussy.
Going deep and pressing on the anal plug. I shuddered once, twice and orgasmed. Master kept moving in/out and stopped to tell me to move on His Cock. He snaked His hand around my ass to my clit and played with it until I orgasmed, again. This orgasm was so hard the anal plug went flying out.
I felt Master put lube on His thumb and he started to play in my ass. I felt the larger glass anal plug replace the first plug. Stretching me open.
Master washed His hands and Cock, only to return for me to suck Him hard and put a condom on. He unclipped my ankles, removed the glass plug, added lube and guided His Cock into my ass, one inch at a time.
By now I was dripping and my asshole was opening up.
Master fully entered my ass and started to move, holding my hips. I orgasmed twice and started to ride Master’s Cock. Master handed me the vibrator and said, “Hold this to your clit.” After a bit of time, I began to buck violently with the strength of my orgasms, Master held my hips for the ride. I finally squeezed Master out and fell flat on my tummy with exhaustion. He went to remove the condom and wash His hands, then lay down to hold me.
After some time, I asked Master’s permission to suck Him. Permission granted, he grew large in my throat. He flipped me over, on to my back, and came into my pussy to orgasm. We passed out for 30 minutes, in the sun.
the sundeck would be jammed.
Not a bad place to take a good beer, right?

Master bought His dievca peonies.
A Midwestern treat in the City.

Lovely to be thought of.
dievca’s favorite flower.
The sun finally came out at the end of the day, yesterday.
And today is supposed to be nice.
dievca will be taking a nap on the rooftop.
Master can’t make it…
Absorb the sun until I sweat
Then I absorb more
Desperate to feel my needs met
Warmth invades my core
(The sun is spilling through the windows and dievca is toasting herself up after being out in the frozen morning.)
