dievca’s good friend in Europe has found a similar solution as to how many New Yorkers are getting through ‘social distancing”…
Looks like her friend has found a really good bottle of wine. 😉

It was a long, arduous Saturday.
Please refer back to Saturday’s post
for where dievca’s mind has stopped.
(Does anyone have wine and all-ready-made chocolate cake for dievca?)


What a great Sister-In-Law!

When someone in the Family just gets it…


dievca was grateful, really grateful~

And that watermelon? That is the way everyone is getting dievca’s Dad to have enough water intake since he insisted upon removing his feeding tube.
Well, he’s not dead, yet!
Umm, Dad might not make it to 88 if he keeps following dievca around the house telling her how to do things…


Umm- was this a Bordello?

It started with a lovely seafood lunch, topped off with a chocolate mousse.
The walk up the hill offered a chance for some views:

And some shopping:

Some of which was in a Bordello:

Actually, it was a very stately house that was a single family home (palace) for many years until the family couldn’t afford the upkeep.  Part of the house was used as a movie set for two years – a French film for which the set designers created the nudes in the entry way and double stair case. Of course, dievca had to ask if it was a house ill-repute.

And a final walk through a park with ancient trees, Magnolia and other:

And a final beer for the way home:

On the go – flight to relaxation. Have a good Saturday!

Everybody else is going green, so we will too- Bring us a bottle of vinho verde.”

 


Wine/half a ham sandwich + internet shopping = danger

dievca escaped.

Barely.

We will talk about wine and internet shopping in more detail, later…

It was a long two days and dievca went up to the roof top to enjoy the warmer temperatures (64 F/ 18 C) after work with a bottle of wine – Lemon Hill Viognier. dievca thinks Master gave it to her – not bad.  The wind of the rooftop swept away some of the heat, so she meandered back to the apartment to finish the 2nd half of a ham sandwich.

This was not a heavy base for the wine she was drinking…

dievca has been spring cleaning, heavily and you know that she has cleared out the closets.  As a part of that process, she has thought about adding bits and pieces to her home decor.

she has a cozy Ugg Duffield throw blanket someone gave her as a gift, but maybe she needs (ok, wants) a more colorful update for summer. she doesn’t have cloth napkins in her current home color scheme. What about a pouf to sit on?

And the wine took over…

As a fan of Missoni, dievca became sucked in on Yoox, Farfetched, RueLala, Matches Fashion, eBay, Neiman Marcus searching for Home Good from the brand.  she was contemplating spending $800 at Rue LaLa for a robe, blanket and a pillow or $1000 at Yoox for a blanket, napkins, and a pouf.

she did a Google search and escaped the madness with just a tablecloth and napkins – on sale for $110, including shipping from Europe. And they are quirky enough to make her happy for Spring without breaking the bank.

This choice was made after a couple of glasses of water.
Saved…

dievca does have a Missoni robe and a couple of Missoni throws in her eBay cart. Maybe they will make more sense in the morning.

So…..have you had a bit too much to drink and bought something on the internet?
Apparently, it’s a thing~😘
