feeling chlapec – Scandinavian Eyeglasses #2

Skaga 2865 Fri Black Men's glasses

dievca’s second pair of glasses are supposedly a masculine frame.  When dievca visits the Swedish optical shop she wanders around and tries on all the frames she finds interesting, then she collects the 8-10 pairs of frames she likes best and ranks them.  When she’s wandering, she never notices if she is in the female/male/kids section.

This second pair of frames were more expensive than the 1st – about $200.  They have a mixed media component: Carbon Fiber, Wood and Metal.  dievca bought them at her friends insistence.  They are a heavier more serious look than her red metal frames.  The photos don’t do them justice.  The wood in the photo looks light – its more of a subtle grey and the top carbon fiber is black matte with a gravel texture.

Very interesting.

Prepping for Midsommar

dievca’s friend had a delivery from her Father – new potatisar (potatoes) and jordgubbar (strawberries) from their Summer House garden.  We have a dill plant, chives in the garden, sour cream and pickled herring.  Lamb will be on the grill.

The traditional accompaniment is a cold beer and schnapps.

dievca’s task? Scrub the potatoes…

Swedish Smile – Good Morning!

Have a good day and a good week.


Cykels – remembering

Do you remember the heat of the Summer?
Cruising along on your bike?
Bicycles = Freedom

Stopping to flirt with the girls or boys?
Time had no meaning.

trött

After a heavy week ending, then heading back to a friend to help her entertain and feed 10 people. – dievca is trött.

Tired.

The crowd was lovely, kind, fun. But when it is not your house, your dishes, your food, your timing – you have to be aware.  Add the language-shifting and alcohol– by the time we played, Kubb, dievca was cooked.

Click on the name to find the rules of the game…just let dievca tell you that it involves throwing larger wooden dowels at wooden objects across a pitch…sometimes around windows.

Recovery starts this morning:


Recap – Departures and Arrivals – Scandinavia

As stated, dievca had a hard time packing for this trip. she zipped her bag closed and the zipper pull came off in her hand. Her other bag was in storage, so she duct taped the bag for “security”.  During the subway ride to JFK, the tape started to pull off, so she found a wrapping station.

After security and the chaos, dievca felt she earned a beer.

The plane was delayed from leaving the gate for 45 min due to a door closing issue, which worked out well because dievca scanned through a rotten movie and crashed hard for 5 hours. Upon waking she watched a good movie before arriving in Copenhagen safely.

Copenhagen Airport is usually quite efficient – but not on this day. dievca was through the passport line, went to the toilet and she still had to wait 1+ hours for the luggage.

The train got her across the water to Sweden and a friend picked her up. Pushing through, they stopped at some home shops. Adorable from the front, with a creepy house elf in the interior:


‘Swedish Sweet’ (hearts, flowers, cottage chic) is not dievca’s decorating vibe, but it does make for a ‘feel-good’ space. As always, dievca’s BDSM mind immediately saw the pleasure/pain potential with these decorated clothespins. Diversity, dievca, diversity!
