30 11 2009
  • Outside my window… (weather, what do you hear, what do you see?)  of the van as I was turning into the complex, I saw a fox.  It was absolutely beautiful.
  • my thoughts…happy thoughts.  I spent a wonderfully long weekend with my family and Master.  It was wonderful.
  • Today’s Quote… Love is everything it’s cracked up to be…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.    Erica Jong, O Magazine, February 2004When you find someone that you can love doing giving everything but your all to it cheats yourself.  This is how I feel.  I love Master much and not being fully committed to U/us does the love I have for him a disservice.
  • i am thankful for…each and everyday.
  • From my service training…(any skills, training etc; notes you want to share this week) My daughter is teaching me how to crochet.  J
  • From the kitchen…(menu for the week, what are you cooking?)  I stuffed the phylo cups with strawberries and topped with whip cream.  It was a nice little refreshing bite with all of the heavy pies and cakes.
  • i am wearing…my workout clothes and I had a chance to go to the gym after work.  Doing two times a day.
  • i am creating…(crafts, sewing etc;)  peace and tranquility
  • my adventures this week…(where are you going this week?)  No adventures this week.  Just basking in the afterglow of being around Master and my family.
  • Becoming well read…(What are you reading this week?)  I am still reading Anneke Jacobs book “As She’s told”.  I am also learning about totems.  Looking to see which one would be for me.  Master thinks it is the dog and I agree with that.  After researching out, the dog has been very prominent in my life.  Also the duck. 🙂
  • i manifest and co-create…(what are your hopes, dreams, and prayers this week) Peace and tranquility in my house and with my children.
  • Today’s Melody…(what music are you listening to? even if it’s just the sound of a bird…) Master and I danced to a great slow song.  I can’ t remember the name of the song…grrr but I am determined to find it…LOL
  • One of my favorite things..is to watch a movie that is so good it makes you talk to the screen…lol
  • further plans for this week…Continuing to fix the house to sell.
  • Still….life(share a picture you’ve taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)

The Hawk is one of Master’s totem:  Hawk teaches us to scope out the situation and focus on our talents, trying to draw them out. Hawk learns to see the big picture in order to understand the past, present, and future. Hawk asks us to be observant of surroundings so we won’t get distracted from our path by others. It also reminds us not to get caught up in minor annoyances so we can maintain our inner balance.  (http://www.animaltotem.com/store.html?wc=64)

Dominatrix on the Move

27 11 2009

A dominatrix in Germany has come up with an interesting new twist on the pro-Domme game.  An entire dominatrix studio in a van.  While I cannot read German, the site looks very interesting (google translation here). Apparently a car dealership specializing in customized vans. Normally the price on one of these vehicles runs about $44,000, but got it almost half off ($24000 US).

Fully outfitted by a local leather shop, it includes all the Domina on the move needs.  Whips, crops, chains and even a cage.

If your over there, you might want to check it out.  It looks pretty hard to miss.

Service Book of Days 11/23/09

23 11 2009

Outside my window… (weather, what do you hear, what do you see?) is another beautiful starry night.

my thoughts…are hopeful. I am putting out positive words and believing that I will receive all good things. Your words give life and death and I choose to breath life and hope with my words

Today’s Quote… Keeping score of old scores and scars, getting even and one-upping, always make you less than you are. Malcolm Forbes (1919 – 1990)

i am thankful for…my family, for each day, my children, my Master and Thanksgiving. This is my one favorite holiday. There are no gifts exchanged, no major things to buy. It is only family and friends laughing and sharing.

From my service training…(any skills, training etc; notes you want to share this week) Nothing for this week.

From the kitchen…(menu for the week, what are you cooking?) Thanksgiving is this week and in addition to the sweet potatoes that I am making, I want to make an appetizer. I phylo cups and would love any suggestions for putting stuff in them.

i am wearing…my workout clothes and I had a chance to go to the gym after work. Doing two times a day.

i am creating…(crafts, sewing etc;) peace and tranquility

my adventures this week…(where are you going this week?) Doing a thorough cleaning and putting everything in order.

Becoming well read…(What are you reading this week?) I am still reading Anneke Jacobs book “As She’s told”. I am also listening to several podio books on the iphone Master gave me. Also, skimming through Mrs. Beeton’s book of household management. Master’s house tends to skew to a Victorian household so this would be good to help me in managing things.

i manifest and co-create…(what are your hopes, dreams, and prayers this week) Peace and tranquility in my house and with my children.

Todays Melody…(what music are you listening to? even if it’s just the sound of a bird…) No music today, just silence. Sometimes I need silence in order to recharge.

One of my favorite things..is to sing. I love to sing from my diaphragm…lol

further plans for this week…Preparing the house for my family. 🙂

Still….life(share a picture you’ve taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)

Black Thunder

18 11 2009

If  you are looking for something to do in the May timeline, you might want to check out Black Thunder.  Imagine being in the mountains of Tennessee in a log cabin surrounded by kinky folk.  All your meals provided for.  Vending.  Camaraderie.  And the price for what you would pay for a weekend hotel stay at another event.  Very nice.

Black Thunder 2010 is an education conference for Blacks and People of Color in the Leather and BDSM Community that will be held at a 4-star mountain resort in the Great Smoky Mountains near Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, away from the concrete jungle of the major cities and the everyday hum-drum of life.

Be prepared to embark on a totally unique “BDSM Convention Experience” in the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains during this all-inclusive three days and nights, intense, energy-filled, exciting, educational conference.

We have reserved several impressive, beautiful, majestic, luxurious, colossal mountain lodges overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains that provides spectacular views from the decks and provides an elegant rustic atmosphere not soon forgotten.

Get away with us for a weekend of education, relaxation, socializing, recharging and most of all, enjoying the use of the play spaces and connecting or reconnecting with other members of the Leather and BDSM Communities

Please note that space is limited to only 150 attendees, including presenters and vendors, don’t delay, register now to secure your space.
