Following the horrific acts of violence –sedition, insurrection, treason–in the Capitol with the knowledge that it was incited by that orange POS, discovering that many people from my little town are among his supporters, I decided it might be time to secure my house with something more than an alarm system, just in case civil war breaks out.
I had never heard of witch balls until I was looking for clear, empty Christmas decorations to send to the Angel Boy 2.0 as a craft. Have you ever heard of them?
My thought was that he could go on a nature walk with mom and dad and pick up special things like we do when I’m there; rocks, seashells, leaves, feathers–but I didn’t know that it also had a historical spiritual connection.
I sent four clear plastic spheres thinking it might engender a family crafting experience, but I discovered that AB 2.0 appropriated them all for himself–he’s a hoarder like me–and I guess they’ll remain stashed away in his bedside drawer until I can finally get there and do it with him.
I also got a couple for myself and had a great time filling them and now one is hanging near the front door and one is near the back door so I feel completely protected and all demons have been vanquished.
Mine contain cinnamon sticks, red toyon berries, lavender, rosemary, bay leaves, sparkles, sea salt, sand, seashells, rocks, feathers, rosehips, white sage, faux pearls and diamonds, and crystals.
It was fascinating to see how many things I could fit inside the sphere. I felt like I should be mumbling an incantation under my breath as I was meandering around my garden, but I only laughed out loud and thought happy thoughts.
Just another very witchy day at Casa de Enchanted Seashells.
I thought I was going to watch Judge Judy; instead there’s coverage of a coup in DC, our seat of democracy–on the day we were to join both Houses and formally count the results of our election, another step in the process to January 20 where we inaugurate Joe Biden as President.
On the steps of the Capitol, on the Senate floor; shots fired, vandalism, violence. Nothing less than domestic terrorism.
It seems as if Capitol Police were apparently complicit in allowing these activities, taking selfies with the criminals, allowing them access to the Capitol.
This piece of shit president and his attempted coup will go down in history as the darkest hour in America’s 250 years of democracy. He called for a rally of his idiotic followers on this day, he stoked the fires of hatred and violence, he told the crowd to use force to change election results.
Today’s attempted coup began with Trump saying to the crowd: “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore,” and then telling them to head to the Capitol to give Republican lawmakers the message.
Like President Biden said, “This is sedition. This is insurrection. Enough is enough is enough.”
Senator Duckworth said they are planning to resume the symbolic vote count as soon as Capitol is secured. Democracy will not be bullied!
Trump needs to be immediately removed from office and arrested for sedition and insurrection.
This is the day after Georgia saved our country by electing Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Thank goodness for Stacey Abrams. She is truly a national treasure.
