Pink funfetti cake is kinda inspired by some story I heard about a military outpost where they’d randomly get cute little fruit snacks called charms for deserts with their meals, and they all got so cagey and superstitious by the end of their tour that they’d decided charms were a bad omen and eating them meant you were about to get into a firefight. The camp divided into the guys who refused to eat the charms because they didn’t want to temp fate, the guys who were so antsy and bored they defiantly ate the charms anyway to try to make something happen, and the guys who would start fist fights with the former guys for eating the charms and cursing them all.
Have you been feeling down? Too tired to get up and do things. Or that no matter how much normal witch-y cleansing you do, there is always something going on? Well, from my experiences, running around with a broom or vacuum smacking those dirt away really helps!
Here are some ways I clean up the energies in my house. If you have any additions add them on! I’d love to hear them and I’m sure others would love it too!
Vacuuming - Oh the smell of a room after it’s been vacuumed. Cleaner but also a little empty. Vacuuming is a good “lets whip the slate clean of everything”. It sucks up the energies in your home leaving it clean and blank. After a good vacuuming is a perfect time to do some home blessings and protections!
Sweeping - Banishing! Now go go go, the broom shrieks as you brush away dirt and old leaves. Sweeping is a perfect way to banish energies. Not suck them up and get ride of them. Oh no, banish them. Forcibly remove them from your place cuz those nastiest aren’t allowed to stay around. You can also put charms on the broom so it lays down goodness as it banishes the not so good stuff.
Window Cleaning - Opening the mind to inspiration and clear thinking. Whipping away the muck from the windows allows the home to be charged and energy flow in smoothly. It also can bring in more inspiration and clearer intuition.
Cleaning The dishes - Time to help harmony move around. Spreading love and charm with eat spoon, plate, and bowls. Allowing fulfillment of the stomach and the soul! Wipe away the muck of the day, and bring in time to for better days!
That’s all I can think of right now. But all of these simple things are great ways to move away from the past and start a fresh slate. After or while you clean is a perfect time to light some warm comfy smells. Good luck with you happy cleansing!
I just had a thought. A lot of times in fanfic, Enj and Cosette are siblings, right? But what if Cosette was, like, really good friends with Grantaire. So he’s just kind of… around their house a lot. Enj will go downstairs in the morning and find R at the breakfast table in Doctor Who pajama pants, eating Lucky Charms and humming “Here Comes The Sun”. Whenever R sits down, Enj’s cat immediately jumps into his lap (“this does nOT MEAN HE LIKES YOU BETTER, R”). Cosette is a frequent subject in R’s paintings. At first, Enj is really annoyed at having R around all the time, but R isn’t antagonistic or argumentative. He’s just /smiley/. He smiles a lot at Enj’s house for some reason. When Enjolras comes downstairs to get a glass of water one night and finds Grantaire and Cosette curled up together, watching High School Musical and giggling together, he suddenly gets a weird feeling in his stomach. It’s not… It can’t be /jealousy/… can it? He wrestles with the feeling for weeks before finally telling Cosette. When he does, she breaks down laughing. “You’ve GOT to be joking. He’s my best friend! And he’s been completely, hilariously in love with you since the first time you met!” Grantaire confirms this a few days later before Enjolras kisses him senseless in the garden.
I tend to relax more with my SD but when I’m going on fine dine with my POT I’d make sure a few things.
1. Phone off on silent
2. No eating and talking simultaneously (chew with your mouth close).
3. Take part in the dinner conversation, charm your date.
4. Eat in smaller portion (cut them in smaller pieces).
5. Eat together, wait for his meal to come before eating.
6. Always pass salt and pepper together.
7. Instead of reaching across the table for something, ask for it to be passed to you.
8. Avoid slouching and don’t place your elbows on the table while eating.
9. Never show stain from your napkin.
10. Napkin on your lap or chair when you’re using the washroom. Napkin on table means you’re done with meal.
11. Careful with lipstick stains on teeth or on your cutlery.
12. Always excuse yourself after meal to fix your lipstick and check your teeth.
My dad was twenty when I was born. He has always been considered to be extremely handsome by all of my friends, people in general, but also himself. When I was barely a teenager, I went to my little brother’s (by my dad) birthday party. It was at McDonald’s, like every classy elementary school bash should be. I was the oldest one there out of all the kids, so dad and I acted as chaperones to the little ones, and I sat with him and one of the other dads who was with us, rather than with my brother and his friends.
Dad is a charming guy. People usually eat his words up. He’s kind of flirty by nature. Usually, he’s good at it, from what I’ve observed.
One of the employees working there was a young, very beautiful woman. She brought our food to us. I remember her being extremely nice to all of us kids, and polite towards the adults. I remember all of this because I’ll probably never forget what has happened later, it’s still engraved in my memory.
Being the guy that he is, my dad went into ‘charmer’ mode. He started chatting her up a little and making small talk. I think I was making fake vomit sounds at the time, because I remember the other dad laughing at me. Anyway, dad turns to me and points in my direction.
“Could you believe that I have a daughter this big already? Don’t I look too young to be a father of a teenager?”
The woman looked at me as well and smiled.
“No. Now have a nice meal everybody.”
And she dashed away. My legend. The other dad and I almost choked from laughter. His Cola went so far up his nose that he was practically exhaling bubbles. Dad was frozen on the spot for the longest time. Truly an evening to remember.
Close to 10 years have passed from that event. I just want to add that he’s grown out of that phase long ago. He’s more mature now, more responsible. He’s a proper dad™.
