some kind of dirt

Dirt

When hoodoo was created, most of the people using it did not have ready access to the best ingredients and often had to hide their practice. Consequently, a lot of what was used had to be things people could obtain. This is why hoodoo uses various roots, sticks, herbs, honey, sugar, and other household supplies readily available. There is no exception for dirt. Different kind of dirt is used for different kind of things but some examples include:

Dirt from the crossroads: used for many things including hexing/cursing, summoning certain spirits, opening roads, etc.

Dirt from a bank: Most commonly used in money work. I swear by bank dirt. It adds so much potency to money workings and every time I have used it I have gotten great results. Could also be used in works to get a loan, get approved for a house, relieve debt, etc.

Dirt from a church: This is usually used for works that have to do with cleansing, healing, or otherwise “holy” matters.

Graveyard dirt: A staple in hoodoo, used for many different things including curses, healing, ancestor work, goofer dust, hot foot powder, etc.

Some of these are examples of things that have been used traditionally and throughout hoodoo’s history. However, all types of folk magick utilize whatever you have.

I have in the past used dirt from a car dealership(to obtain a car), dirt from a red ant farm(defensive/hexing), dirt from a destroyed/abandoned building(defensive/hexing), and dirt from a specific apartment complex I wanted to live in. *not all of these are my ideas, but some of them are* 

Folk Magick is and was about using whatever you have around you, and often whatever cost less. Do not ever feel like you can’t do effective, life changing magick with twigs and leaves. You can. Our ancestors did, you can too.

Sirius being protective over you would include…

- Even though Sirius isn’t much of the jealous type, you’d soon notice that he’d get incredibly protecive over you at times

- He wouldn’t for example be bothered by some random guy getting a bit flirty around you (even though it wouldn’t be his favourite thing), but he actually quite knew that none of these guys could compete with him

- What made him snap however, were people looking at you in the wrong way

- He’d instantly be by your side, towering next to you and placing a hand on your waist, while practically killing the other person with his looks

- If they wouldn’t back away, he’d absolutely have no problem with ‘invading their personal space’ a bit

- He would step closer to them, lowly growling in their ear, demanding for them to leave you alone (which actually wasn’t ever met with some kind of resistence)

- “Listen, you piece of dirt. I do not give a damn about your desperate little life, but be sure that I will end it on the spot if you dare to keep looking at my little one like that.”

- Him not wanting you to go out alone in the dark, so he would make sure that either him, or one of your friends would be around whenever you were on a night out

- You always being told to be careful wherever you go

- Like, wherever you go, even if you just go shopping for groceries

- You at some point asking him what always got him so worried, just for him to confess that he simply doesn’t want anything to happen to you

- “Y/N I.. I know I might seem a bit overprotective at times, but sweetheart, I can’t even endure thinking about something happening to you”

Inflorescence

Characters: CastielXReader, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester

Word Count: 894

A/N: Short and sweet - fluffy Cas being impossibly adorable. I hope he makes you feel as warm and fuzzy as he makes me feel in this one! For the curious reader - the title, inflorescence, refers to the flowering body of a plant.

(not my GIF)

“Cas, what the hell!” Hands gesticulating wildly in the air, Dean glowered a mix of concern and annoyance at the angel currently inexplicably grappling at the top of the stairs with a largish bare-rooted tree of some kind. Clumps of mud, dirt, and gravel showered through the metal landing, hissing as they scattered across the cement floor.

Sam wandered in from the library, alerted by the commotion, freezing in the doorway, brow furrowing in confusion at the strange scene playing out before him. “Is that a tree?”

❝ i like my hair the way it is, thank you. ❞ @i-weave-the-stone

“You mean… up? Just.. up??”

Jayce grimaces as he looks down to the girl. He attempts to make some kind of hand gesture to convey his feelings about that dirt-sprinkled feather duster she seems to be so proud of, but he can’t manage much more than a few choked noises as he bites back several comments.

You looks like a dropped dragonfruit. 
Like some kind of sad, bruised pineapple. 
Like a palm tree whose leaves never bent back into shape.

He’s trying to be nice, but her head’s clearly been put on wrong.

“I mean.. Sure.. I guess… You can like it all you want, but that doesn’t mean it actually looks good.”

Had a weird dream that I couldn’t remember most of (I think? I changed into some kind of critter at some point?)
An old friend was there and we somehow got into my old apartment while no one was home

But at the end I left wherever I was and it was kind of woodsy. I started walking through an alley and there was a large, high security “correctional facility” on one side of the road, and a huge gated wall on the other. When I got onto the road (dirt, but well worn) there was some kind of huge, shaggy dog-like creature that seemed to shrink down as it lumbered into the gates of the correctional facility. And there was a small group of still rather scruffy, but more wolfish animals  transporting a pile of dead prey. I had to walk that way but they seemed friendly, walking up to nose me as I entered the woods

Then my alarm went off

fablepaint replied to your post:I am so excited to get this stupid indoor herb…

i had really good success with green onion. We had to chuck our pot when we moved, but getting another batch of crazy huge green onion would only take a month or two now.

I got this weird garden pod thing (I’m glad I bought it yesterday, the price went up like $25 on the Amazon listing today)

it can support plants up to 24″ tall and grows them in dirt cones suspended in some kind of weird SCIENCE BUBBLE That supposedly uses way less water than a normal garden


So I think we’re kinda limited to above-ground plants because there’s almost no dirt, just little pod cones.

The only snsd member i truly feel bad for is Hyoyeon, despite not being my bias, i feel like deserves all the love and support she gets from her fans, she got provoked by Jessica in snsd’s early days and yet she didn’t start a fight, she gets the worst outfits, and doesn’t even complain, she is the best dancer, and yet rarely is shown as the center, SM needs to start showing her some kindness otherwise she might leave them in the dirt pile, she is honestly one of the only members that seems to help snsd out, she is always there with her funny jokes and actions to cheer them up, HYOYEON FIGHTING~!
