Furniture moved. Items cleaned & put away. Floor vacuumed & moped. Plants watered. I’m loving this new studio lay-out! My studio seems bigger than before, I didn’t know it was possible. And I still have the view of the hill/sky from my bed. There’s going to be the Perseid meteor shower tonight apparently. I have a good spot!
Monastero Santa Teresa in Puglia, Italian holiday.
I love Italy, and I have at least one annual trip there. Most recent one was to the south, a 3 day trip to Puglia. I have never ventured past Naples and Capri, so everything was completely new. The region is growing in popularity, celebrities buy summer residences, there are haute couture ateliers, it is spotless clean, and not yet touristy.
We headed to Nardo, in Lecce province. Only 1.5h flight from Paris to Bari, and then a short drive along olive trees plantations (rent a car as other transportation modes can be a bit tricky, whereas driving a cute Fiat 500 will set you up in a good mood), and here we were in Nardo.
You will not find here big chain hotels but rather a state of art, ancient palatial residences turned into boutique hotel. We stayed in one of such places: a very unique Monastero Santa Teresa. The domain has quite a history, it was an aristocratic palace, turned into a monastery and most recently into the hotel.
Staying among antique furniture, in a real princess bed in Puglia for a weekend is a refreshing experience.
Beautiful wall frescos inside Monastero Santa Teresa.
Antique furniture everywhere
Sneak peak into the monastery chapel.
A view from my bed in the morning. One thing I enjoyed about Monastero Santa Teresa was the space, with only a dozen of rooms you are not feeling like in a hotel, you live the palatial atmosphere of a luxury boutique venue. And for breakfast you will take a pretty walk through tiny streets of Nardo to nearby Relais Il Mignano.
Yes, I did climb the rooftop of Monastero Santa Teresa
Nearby towns, each one a bit different, smelling cypress trees, with pretty beaches, local restaurants, and amazing sunsets. Somehow in 3 days we drove 700km, listening to countless playlist and enjoying every moment of it.
REQUEST by LUCCEROMMA4403: I was wondering if you could write this for
me. The reader and Roman are married and they’re both in WWE as wrestler.
During a match the reader gets hurt and now she’s in bed rest to recover from a
serious injury. When Roman came back, you get heated being around Roman and so
the reader wants to make love and he’s very hesitant. But eventually he agrees
and so the make love but he’s super gentle. And maybe they get a little rough?😏
I would appreciate if you could😋
(A/N): The thirst was real while I wrote this so it’s longer than expected, I
mean , look at our Samoan God. Enjoy loves!
fine,’’ I chuckled as I shifted my weight on the bed, careful not to hurt my
right leg. I had to stay in bed the upcoming weeks, thanks to the match I had
almost a month ago. Charlotte was talking crap about my husband, so you could
figure I wasn’t going to let her get away with it just like that. Even though
everyone backstage tried to stop me, I pushed all of them away and surprised
Charlotte in the ring. I grabbed her hair and pulled it backwards, dragging her
to the ground. She, of course, fought back by literally kicking my ass and
whatever she had in store. At one point, I was laying on the ground and she
jumped on my leg too hard, causing it to bruise badly. I cried it out at the
top of my lungs but she kept going and going. Eventually, my husband and some
referees came out, removing Charlotte away from my reach. I was really hurt and
my only concern was to beat the hell out of her. My husband, at the other hand,
carried me to the nursery backstage. I was secretly happy he did, because I
couldn’t handle any more source of pain or pressure. The doctor said that I
needed at least two months of rest, which annoyed the shit out of me, since I
wanted to wrestle and do things. I mostly wanted to have some alone time with
my husband, if you know what I mean, but that wasn’t really possible since my
leg still hurts and him being overprotective.
‘’Was it really necessary to ran out there?’’ My mom
asked concerned, sitting at the end of the bed, partly blocking my view from
the TV that hung in the room.
‘’No one is talking about my husband that way.’’ I
answered fiercely. ‘’I warned her before mom, but she loves to provoke things
like this. Charlotte knows how much I hate it when someone talks bad about the
people I love and she knows damn well that I will strike back ten times
harder.’’ I felt myself getting frustrated again. ‘’She did this on purpose.’’
‘’It’s lovely to hear that you care so much about him,
but next time, think before you act darling, look where this got you now.’’
‘’I know,’’ I sighed, ‘’I’m sorry for scaring you.’’
‘’Oh honey, don’t apologize for that. I just hope you
get well soon so you can do what you love to do again.’’ My mom smiled and
stood up. ‘’I have to go now hun, dad wants to take me out to dinner tonight so
I have to get ready.’’
‘’Aw you guys make my heart warm,’’ I cupped my chest,
‘’have fun and greet dad for me.’’
‘’I will and thank you my little one.’’ She kissed my
head and she left. Once I heard the door close, I wanted to change channel, but
the remote control was at the end of the bed where my mom sat. She insisted on
watching The Bold and The Beautiful since ‘things got heated’ between Steffy
and Liam or whoever they were. I groaned loudly, throwing my head back on the
pillows and closing my eyes. As I was about to think of a way to grab the
remote, the bedroom door flew open. My eyes opened right away, seeing my
husband standing in the doorway with his suitcases, hair being in a messy bun,
wearing a black t-shirt and black sweatpants.
‘’Someone in this room missed me?’’ He smiled as
bright as I did. I honestly didn’t care about my leg at that moment so I stood
up, making Roman to drop all the bags he had in his hand to catch me. ‘’Jesus
baby, what are you doing?’’ He asked concerned as he pulled me close to him.
‘’You shouldn’t be walking, you should be resting.’’ He chuckled. I nodded
against his broad chest, wrapping my arms around his neck. I missed every
single thing about him; his smell, his laugh, his body, his kisses, literally
‘’I missed you so much.’’
‘’I missed you too babygirl, a lot.’’ He said warmly.
‘’Now let’s get you back in bed.’’ Roman lifted me up bridal style, making me
giggle. Slowly laying me down again. Luckily for me, I could move my leg
better, but it still hurts with certain movements I made. ‘’How is my wife
doing?’’ He asked as he crawled in bed next to me.
‘’You’re wife is sick of being in bed all day long.’’
‘’I can imagine that, but you heard what the doctor
said, y/n.’’ He pulled his shirt over his head, throwing it aside on the chair.
‘’You gotta rest for at least two months before you can do things again.’’
‘’I don’t care. I’m into other things than bedrest and
watching TV all day long.’’ His right
arm was wrapped around my waist, our skin touching after so long, making me
crave him even more than before. I ran my fingers over his hand and slowly
guided it downwards to my center.
‘’Y/n, what are you doing?’’ He looked at me with a
‘’Providing us both with a source of pleasure,’’ I bit
my lip, ‘’It’s been so long.’’
‘’I know, but I don’t want the risk of you getting
hurt again, by me this time.’’ He said bothered.
‘’Roman please,’’ I moaned in his ear as I slid his
hand down further, ‘’I need you so bad, I haven’t seen you, felt you for so
‘’I don’t wanna hurt you..’’ He trailed off as I slid
his hand inside of my panties. ‘’Holy shit, baby’’ Looking at me, I felt his
hand take back his own will, index finger circling my clit slowly. I moaned,
throwing head back against his shoulder in immense pleasure. ‘’You sure you
want this, once we continue this, there’s no stopping me.’’ He whispered in my
ear. Nodding was the only thing I could do since my words failed me.
‘’I trust you.’’ I said, my hand sliding in front of
his sweats to rub his shaft through the fabric. He was slowly getting harder by
my touch, groaning lightly. ‘’That feels so…’’ I couldn’t finish my sentence as
he slid two fingers inside of me. ‘’Oh fuck Roman.’’
‘’You missed that baby?’’ He deeply said, making me
shiver, ‘’You missed me touching you like this?’’ His fingers curled inside of
me, waiting for a response since I didn’t answer him.
‘’Oh my god, yes Roman.’’ My grip on his arm tightened
since I felt myself getting closer to reaching my peak.
‘’Let me taste you.’’ Pulling his fingers out of me, the
emptiness making me whine. Once he slowly took off my panties, he carefully
took my painful leg and placed it on his broad shoulder. I gave him a nod,
letting him know I was okay. Placing soft kisses on my inner thigh, his lips felt
like fire against my heated skin. I closed my eyes, waiting for what was coming.
He licked all the way up from my center to my sensitive bundle of nerves.
Instinctively I grabbed his hair, arching my back.
‘’Fuckkk.’’ I moaned loudly. His fingers finding their
way back inside of me while he gently sucked my clit, circling it with his
talented tongue. ‘’Jesus baby…Oh m-my g-goddd.’’ I shuddered beneath him. He
hummed against me on purpose, sending vibrations over my pussy, feeling the
effects throughout my whole body.
‘’You taste so fucking good y/n,’’ he murmured against
me, ‘’you gonna cum for me?’’ Roman asked, never stopping pumping in and out of
me with this fingers. The metal of his ring made contact with my center
everytime he pushed back inside, the mixture of heat and cold sending me over
the edge. ‘’Good girl.’’ He took one last lick of my pussy as he took a hold of
my leg and slowly parted it with his hand as he kissed my stomach. I was given
a moment to catch my breath and to get rid of his shirt I was wearing as Roman
took off all his clothes. Once he was fully naked, towering over me, I took a
moment to look at him. My husband is seriously a god. ‘’I’ll be gentle baby,
don’t worry,’’ he smiled. I nodded, giving him a smile back. ‘’Just relax..’’
He whispered as he took a hold of his dick, wiping the pre cum away with his
thumb. I grabbed his hand and sucked it off his digit, making him groan.
‘’Oh shit..’’ I cried out as he slowly pushed inside
of me. The feeling of being stretched out again after so long is an indescribably
pleasurable feeling. While giving me a moment to adjust to his thick and long
dick, he kissed my neck. ‘’Roman…’’ I whimpered. He started to move slowly,
gentle and careful thrusts.
‘’Does that feel good babe?’’ Roman grunted, careful
not to hurt my leg. Somehow, the slight pain of my leg and the pleasure, caused an amazing
‘’Harder,’’ I begged. I could feel he was holding
himself back, ‘’I need you to go harder.’’
‘’Are you sure?’’ Caressing my cheek, he looked at me
somewhat concerned. As I nodded, he wasted no time with picking up speed. ‘’You
gotta tell me if I hurt you.’’ Roman breathed. His hand moved my sore leg
further apart, gripping my hips as he thrusted rapidly in and out of me. ‘’I
missed you so fucking much babygirl.’’
‘’I missed you too Roman, fuck!’’ I cried out of
pleasure as he started to rub my clit. ‘’Oh yes, just like that, I’m gonna cum
baby,’’ I felt him hitting my g-spot over and over again.
‘’Cum for me baby, haven’t felt you cum around my dick
for so long, come on darling.’’
‘’Oh my fucking god, yes!’’ I screamed as my juices
started to drip down his dick.
‘’Yeah babygirl, that’s it.’’ He chuckled. His thrusts
became harsher, but sloppy, almost reaching his peak. Pieces of his hair
started to fall out his bun, tickling my face. I started to move my hips to push him deeper
inside of me, helping him. ‘’Jesus, y/n,’’ he struggled to say, ‘’Oh baby,
fuck.’’ Roman moaned, his left hand pinching my sensitive nipples. I felt the familiar
heat in my abdomen, signing me that I was close to another orgasm. After a few
thrusts, I felt his dick jerk inside of me. He kissed me sweetly as he pulled
out. Just as I thought he was done, he pushed his fingers inside of me again,
rubbing my clit with his thumb, making me cum for the second time. We were both
breathless as we lied back down under the covers.
‘’Thank you,’’ I said, taking his hand in mine, ‘’I
really needed this.’’
‘’I gotta ask Charlotte to talk more shit about me if
this is what your injury leads to.’’ Roman chuckled.
‘’You better watch out with what you say Reigns,’’ my
finger traced his cheek, looking in his eyes. ‘’I love you.’’
‘’I love you more babygirl,’’ He sweetly said, kissing me.
A happy Monday.
💜New oils arrived today and are rounding out my library so nicely. Frankincense smells divine. I have it diffusing with a pinch of eucalyptus and black pepper at the moment.
💙 Celestite I have been wanting for a long time. I placed it in our bedroom with the halite and newly relocated amethyst, nestled with a couple small clear Quartz pieces.
💚 I can’t even be mad at this stupid, fat squirrel for eating the bird food out of the feeder because how cute are they?
💛 Current view from my bed. Oils brewing, minerals exuding their earthy amazingness, the sun starting to set outside the sliding door. I swam again today and again I feel amazing. I could definitely get used to this.
The View From Here - well, I’m stuck in bed indefinitely while all my health problems join hands and skip down hill together. Technically, I’m not supposed to be knitting (or doing anything more strenuous with my hands than eating a sandwich). But …. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do while I sit on my butt waiting to feel like a human again. Plus I want to wear these socks, and start a shawl with some baby merino/cashmere I spun last year, and I’m BORED. Bored bored bored.
For someone who was terrified of sock knitting just 2 months ago, I sure seem to have got over it. This Welsh Mule (that is a sheep breed people, not an ass) that I dyed last year was meant to be part of a colourwork jumper. Then I looked at the stash and thought “Hmmmm… 1 jumper = 12 pairs of socks”, so I’ve become a sock maniac. Each pair is a bit better than the last and takes less time to knit. If I ignore the many doctors (who don’t knit and therefore don’t get it) I can make a pair in 3-4 days. And that is probably why it currently hurts to hold a sandwich, much less knitting needles. Pain shmain - it’s amazing what a knitter will put up with just to keep knitting (but if you ask me to put up with the same pain to, say, clean the kitchen, well … let’s just say the kitchen doesn’t look great right now). I wouldn’t say no to a knitting-elf, though. Actually, a skein-ball-winding-elf would be even better. Sigh.
Last night I thought I would teach the bf how to crochet, on the basis that this is a useful skill and I could put him to work on pot holders and other useful domestic accessories. After 2 hours, we were both laughing so hard we were crying and he still hadn’t got the hang of the basic move to make a single chain. How can you have a Masters in Engineering and not be able to pull a bit of yarn through a loop? It beat any comedy I’ve ever seen, anywhere, so if you are bored or just need a giggle, I highly recommend this for your evening entertainment. I’m looking forward to Episode 2 of “Crochet Masters” very much. I may have to film it next time.
