dievca stepped on to the airplane, blown dry and straight.
By the end of eating Thanksgiving Dinner outside, her bob was moving into waves.
This morning, after sleeping with the windows open and a breeze – the ringlets have appeared.
There is no fighting it.
You have to go with the flow~
What dievca wore to Thanksgiving Dinner:
dievca has found a simple travel outfit that works in heat and cooler environments.
From the Beach to a Sidewalk Cafe, to the Mountains, to a Roadside Bar.
No worries about wrinkles, drips and damage.

Recently, I’ve been disappointed and disillusioned in the USA. Perhaps that has to do with my own failings and regrouping. But, as I drive through the Midwest and see how gorgeous my country is ~ as I witness NY State working to protect “Pro Choice” rights and view a “Pro Choice” rally in front of Lambeau Field (Home of the Green Bay Packers football team located in a heavily Catholic/Christian community) I am starting to believe in the USA doctrine, again. We can disagree, we can argue, we have smart people and morons living together – we will do stupid things – we are human. But, we, as United States Citizens, can state our feelings for good or bad. Then stumble along to address those issues.
One on one.
The people in the midwestern hotel – dressed in biker gang gear – are kind, holding the door for a gimpy dievca and asking how she is doing.
This place isn’t perfect by any means, but its mine.
Happy Independence Day~
dievca doesn’t know if it was the international travel, the surgery or this second round of travel.
she hit a wall.
The good news is that there is no pressing schedule and there is enough time to get things done with healing.
Taking it slow this morning.
BTW: The great grand RugRats loved the NYC bagels their Grand Aunt brought
Yep, with the knee still wrapped, dievca is heading west to what Master calls “Flyover Country”. she will be consolidating storage units (with good help), seeing family and friends, taking Mom and Dad’s ashes to Mass, etc.
The corn should be knee high by the 4th of July!
dievca might even get a chance to attend a Midwestern small town 4th of July Parade.
What are you up to for Independence Day? (USA located viewers 😘)
You take what you can find at dievca’s Mom’s House.
Last night dievca found this:
Who on God’s Earth brought this over?
And this afternoon she found this:
A staple at a Chicago Cubs Game~
Both offerings are rough around the edges – but in a pinch, they’ll do~
dievca’s running to the Grocery store late tonight – the next visit won’t be as desperate.
PS. Her Mom is doing relatively well.
Good Morning! Maybe a little late for the East Coast. XO
A little coffee before driving inland for phase two.
Enjoy your week!

The backpack takes the load, the Nikes carry the load, the sweater keeps it warm, the linen keeps it cool, the spandex allows flexibility. dievca wore black incase something gets spilled on the plane, plus its forgiving on body type so she didn’t look too sloppy.
dievca was busy trying to get the ball rolling~
Always desperate for good coffee at my Parents’,
M. gave me a coffee packet for the trip.
The name made me laugh like heck!
We’ll see how those caramel notes soothe stressed nerves.
Your submissive is waiting.
Green for Coffee, Orange for Tea.
Try not to mix them.
dievca was gifted her green S’well bottle about 5 years ago. The orange one she bought on eBay. The bottles fit into her bike water bottle holder or in her backpack. It keeps her coffee or tea warm for hours. The bottles are bright enough to see at 5 am and also hard to lose at work. They have been dropped in the middle of 34th Street and survived traffic.
They do not leak, they can be rinsed easily, they take a beating, they come in many colors, they are stainless steel = no food staining or odors, the bottles fit in a car drink holder and they replace plastic water bottles or coffee cups.
Price point – $25 to $45 depending upon size
Something very useful!
In 2010, Sarah Kauss launched S’well with the mission to rid the world of plastic water bottles. She believed that if her company made a crave-worthy bottle that combined fashion with function, people would stop buying disposable bottles and it could cut single-use plastic consumption worldwide. It was an audacious goal, but Sarah knew the world needed S’well.
Seven years later, S’well is the fastest growing woman-owned company in the country! The fan base has been built by word of mouth, one enthusiastic user to another. S’well is making a big difference by helping keep single-use plastic out of landfills and waterways.

Which pattern is your favorite S’well?
If the K-Cup coffee offered is terrible — here’s a solution for the 4:30 am coffee need.
The view works for a lovely wake up moment, too.
Good Morning from Your dievča.
you are tired
