While I love my son, I'm sooooooo happy he's back in school!!!!

It's so nice while he's away!

I have my privacy, I can shop alone or with a girlfriend, I can eat what I want... and what I want to eat REMAINS in the fridge!!!

I can sit at my computer all DAY if I want... without him walking in and out of my bedroom... saying "what are ya doing???" or "this show is great, let me tell you all about it in complete!!!" or "I'm board, lets go out to eat...shopping...for a ride... to look at games....and so on and so on and so on!!!

Unfortunately, this is only a brief break.... in 4 weeks he'll be home again for Christmas.... and that's for A WHOLE MONTH!!!!

Sigh.... but I guess I have to take the good with the bad, and enjoy my time alone while he's at school, and suffer through the times he's home... after all, he is my baby boy!!!!

But, might I add.... after school is done..... I hope he gets a job FAR AWAY from home!!!!! GIGGLE

Jersey Shore

I was just talking with my sister, about the scummy TV shows on now.... using Jersey and the Jersey shore as their title.

Real Jersey housewives
Jersey shore
and some slimy one about hair dressers!!!!


They are all transplants from New York, or Staten Island....

but NONE of them are actually born and raised in New Jersey!!!!!!

It's bad enough we have to hear crap about people from Newark, but now they are trying to show the whole of N.J. filled with New York TRASH!!!!!

We DO NOT act like them, we DO NOT look like them!!!! And I'm pissed off they are ruining the reputation of New Jersey by portraying us with those N.Y. scumbags!!!!

Tell it like it is people! Let the people watching this crap that those people aren't real New Jersey people!!!!!

Damn Trolls!!!!!

Still haven't found my prescription sun glass's!!!! I KNOW THEY HAVE THEM!!!! I WANT THEM BACK!!!!!

They are probably planning to sell them on E-Bay!!!


The trolls are coming hear them squealing, running.
Always scheming, while we dream.
Searching out the pretty things!
shiny bobbles, glitter rings
Take them home and horde them now,
let the humans wonder how,
they lost that damn thing anyhow?
Watching Troll's giggling so gay
Play with it, put it back another day
by J. Oliveri

More older spells

Chant this 3 times over:

Open mind, and gain new life,
Gone from you, all stress and strife.
Open heart, gain life anew,
Accept all love that's offered you.
Positive thought and word and deed
Enter now, of bane I'm freed.
Ancients, hear me, grant my plea
To new relationships, open me.


Keeper of what disappears,
Hear me now, open your ears.
Find for me what I now seek
By Moon, Sun, Wind, Fire, Earth, and Sea.


Venus, Queen of Love, divine
Bring the love to me that's mine.
Perfect, she/he, and perfect, me,
Together we are meant to be.

O Mother Goddess, thank you for the love you show me every day
I see your face in every leaf of every tree, and in the dew on a butterfly's wing.
Thank you for the joys and pains I have experienced,
and will experience, this summer.

O Father God, thank you for all of your gifts.
The gift of sunshine and the gift of rain.
The gift of happiness and the gift of pain.
Thank you for life itself, the most precious gift of all.
My heart is forever with you.
Please keep me faithful in your service

In Memory

In memory of my early blogging, I'm re-posting some stuff from all those years ago. Hope you enjoy them


One of the good spells I use is for Apathy. Apathy is when you start not giving a shit. You don't want to go out, do things, basically depression. I suffer from this on occasion, have since I was a child. Don't know the reason, it just comes and goes. I found this quick remedy, a slow working one, but good.

Make a nice hot cup of peppermint tea, either using the bag kind, or fresh dried peppermint. As the tea steeps, lean over the cup and chant:

Add excitement, herb of spice,
Restore my interest in the life.
Indifference, please, now chase away.
Remove this villain now, I say!

Like I said, it works pretty good, but for a sure fire cure for depression, you have to have a cat or dog as a pet.

This is weird, but you have to try it before you laugh at it. When your home alone, make sure your pets in the room with you, shed your clothing, and do a silly dance in front of the animal. Let me tell you...... Their expression while seeing you do this, will send you into gales of healing laughter!!!!!!! I tried it, and while it think the act has permanently cause brain damage in my cat..... I laughed for hours, it's was hysterical!!!!! Depression disappeared really fast. Giggle

Here's some spells for Home and Hearth. This one is a mantra that I say every morning. I just have it typed up and posted on the wall by my computer. I love to read it every morning just for added protection:

By the light and heart of the earth.
I forbid all evil spirits my bedstead and couch.
I forbid you my house and home:
I forbid you my flesh and blood and body and soul.
I irrevocably forbid you entrance to my mind,
and my thoughts.
My fears and my strengths.
until you have traveled over every single hill
and vale:
Forged every stream and river,
counted all the grains of sand on all the shores:
and every star in the sky,
I forbid you!

What's your Fav Color?

What it represents: Ah, the color of passion, anger and high blood pressure. Red is a primal color. It represents primal urges, like lust (“I must have you now!”) and fury (you know the phrase “seeing red,” right?). Yes, red is a commanding color: think of how stop signs get you to halt in your tracks and how you stand back when a red fire engine goes whizzing by.

Understanding people who love it: They act — sometimes without thinking — on immediate desires. In fact, they’re usually the poster children for immediate gratification. It’s up to you if you go for it... or proceed with caution.

What it represents: OK, orange is not exactly the easiest color to wear and it’s not the most common favorite color, but guess what? Orange is as sensual as it gets. Orange is a mellowed red — and it takes primal, lusty urges and mellows them with a softer vibe. Orange is the color of early attractions, emotional responses, and inner magnetism. Oh, and one other thing: orange is also close to gold, the color of success and wealth.

Understanding people who love it: Someone who likes orange is alive with feelings, the ability to nurture, and can intuit a path to success. If your favorite color is orange, you don’t have an “off” switch when it comes to passion. This is all good stuff, but there’s nothing casual about the connections this kind of person usually forges.

What it represents: Yellow is the color of the sun, vitality, power and ego... but it’s not a great indicator of romance. Watch out for self-centered, “me first” energy when someone prefers yellow to the rest of the rainbow.

Understanding people who love it: If yellow is your favorite color, temper your use of the word “I” when you’re interested in someone else. You can come across as too ego-centric otherwise. Now, if you’re dating someone whose favorite hue is yellow, make sure to jump in and share stories about yourself, since this person may not give you much room.

What it represents: Here is the heart of the matter: green is the color of love. (It’s no coincidence that we make our money in the same color...) Green is the color of life and abundance — leaves, grass, plants — it’s all about growing, expanding, and living. So why don’t we give ferns instead of roses on Valentine’s Day? Because green is about expansive, humanistic love and acceptance, not bodice-ripping romance. What’s more, green is a nice-person color, a “do-gooder, be-gooder” kind of color. This person has a warm heart. Passion is probably in there somewhere, buried under their integrity and honor.

Understanding people who love it: If you love green, you put the greater good before your own good — but try a little selfish behavior once in a while.

What it represents: Blue is a color of clarity, communications and charm. And regardless of the shade, this hue says: “I like to be understood.” On the downside, under stress, a “blue” person can send mixed messages, have trouble making up their mind, or just space out during conversations.

Understanding people who love it: If blue is your favorite color, you never run out of anything to say — expression is your strong suit. And if you’re dating a “blue” person? The same holds true; you should always know where you stand.

What it represents: Purple evokes the energy of illusion, imagination and fantasy. Or should we say purrrrple? Purple tends to inspire coyness, romance, flirtation and teasing — it builds anticipation with a dash of playfulness. The downside of purple is unrealistic expectations. Is it easier to live in your fantasy world than the real world? Some purple-lovers prefer it.

Understanding people who love it: If you love purple, you can be an imaginative romantic or prefer imaginary romance, depending on how you feel.

What it represents: White is light — the combination of all colors. White symbolizes purity (the traditional bridal dress, the christening gown) and spirituality. There’s a simplicity to it, too.

Understanding people who love it: People who love white are probably clean and orderly. While white isn’t the sexiest color, it is certainly healthy.

What it represents: Like white, black is a combination of all colors, but instead of purity, it represents the unknown, the unseen — mystery. Black basically holds back information... but there’s no denying that it has strong associations in our culture with “the dark side” and evil.

Understanding people who love it: If your favorite color is black, you are more hush-hush than high-strung in nature. The silence of this color lets others fill in the blanks. Black says, “I’m not telling you anything.” People who love black can be tough nuts to crack, but quite possibly worth the effort.

whooo hooo

Leanna hit 100!!!!!!!! The old bag! Giggle

No, not 100 years.... but 100 followers!!!!

She's having a great giveaway, so hurry on over there to enter!!!!!


Not that it's gonna do you any good.... since I already crossed all my finger and all my toes hoping to win!!!! Can't walk for shit, and I keep dropping my coffee cup... BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT!!!!

Patio Composter

Just because you do patio plants, doesn't mean you can't compost. This is mine.

It's a big empty pot I use every year. I start out by chucking weeds, vegetable cutting (like chopped up celery, potato skins, apple peals) into it all summer long.... and then in the fall....

....I have two big planters that I plant annuals in the spring and summer, plus the ones I plant veggies in, when it comes to fall, I remove the dead annuals and tomato plants, and add soil to the compost pot... and stir, and stir..... Notice my cool shovel, that used to be a soup spoon!

As the fall progresses I add more kitchen scraps, more soil from the annual pots, leaves that I rip and crunch up by hand, and more soil.

The soil in the pot never freezes during the winter, because of the heat caused by composting, so I make sure it stays watered (don't need a hose, just chuck a few glasses of water in it every few days!), and I turn and stir the stuff all fall and winter.

By spring, I have a huge pot of composted, vitamin enriched soil!!!!

Deep, dark and rich!!!!

when spring is here, I add a few scoops of the compost soil to all my permanent planters, and for things like tomatoes, I add half bagged potting soil, and the compost.

And in the fall the cycle starts all over again!!!!

Just because you have a patio, like me, doesn't mean your plants can't be happy, and the soil they grow in rich with organic ingredients.

Plus it's so much easier controlling a small compost pile, then one of those huge ones you need to turn with a pitchfork!!!!

Few words of warning.... NEVER add meat to a compost pile. Not a good thing, plus it will call animals from all over to forage in your yard.

Old eggs, shells and all can be used.

Make sure you chop up your left over veggies, the smaller the chopping, the faster it breaks down.

I keep a Tupperware container next to my sink, and as I cook and chop, I just add the chopped up scraps to the container, and seal the lid.

About once a week I take it outside, empty it into the compost pile, and wash the container and put it back by the sink.

I have a lot of long term plants, like blueberry's, and I never have to re pot them because of the compost added each year. They love it!!! And produce huge bumper crops each year!!!

And the tomato's, I swear I can hear them humming in contentment as I add the compost!

Happy plants make good eating!!!!

PS, that pole you see is an old bamboo pole I use to poke holes in the composted soil. this allows air and water to reach to the bottom of the pot, and it just takes a few jabs with the pole each week to reach the bottom of the pot!

Apple Pie

My Mother always made a fresh apple pie for the holidays.

And even though she was a die hard Catholic, (wicca was from my fathers side... yes, men are witch's too!!)

She would always start her apple pie, by coring and then slicing the first apple to go into the pie, putting the apples in a large glass bowl... and say:

1st slice for happiness, that grows on a tree
2nd slice for true love, may it always follow me
3rd slice for health, disease free
4th slice for peace flowing like tea
5th slice for appetite, calories flee
and 6th slice for Patience to always follow me

Then she would finish slicing the apples, and add the sugar to sweeten the spell.
And bake her pie.

I always wondered why she said it, since she did not believe in my fathers craft... but you know, sometimes what others do, and say rubs off on you in a good way!

Z - Zoo, Zoo???? Really??? you know, I don't think I've ever been to one.

OK gals, now it's your turn!!!!!

Quick and Easy

I love doing spells, but sometimes they can be a drag!

You have to be alone for a while, you have to cast a circle, the way you dress, and say the spell has to be just right!

How many Witch's have the time for that???

Between kids, phones ringing, hubby's, and all the many distractions that life brings.... when do you have time to do all of this and still have a sacred time to do spells??

This was taught to me by my Grandfather. Quick and easy.... just the preparation takes time.

Go buy a fat, short candle. Nice and big, but not tall. Take time to think about the spell you want cast.... and then shorten the spell.

Ex: a spell to find a new job can be long... and rhyming can be a pain... so take the main idea of the spell. IE: new job, happy, good pay.... etc.

And using a pin or another sharp object, write those words around the bottom of the candle about a 1/2 inch from the bottom.

Once you get this part sorted out, and it takes a while to be sure of what you going to say...... the concentration you put on the spell to shorten it, and then engrave it into the candle... is your will... you've actually cast the spell, but it's dormant still.

Now, on your dresser, or alter or where ever it's safe.... cast a small circle.. just big enough to fit the candle in... depending on the size of the candle, 10 inch's should be fine.... easy to cast such a small circle.....

You can do this just by putting a ring of salt around the candle, and envisioning the casting of a circle.

Fast, easy, done.

Now each day, at a time you pick, even more then once a day.. you can do it 3 or four times a day...(but only keep the candle lit for an hour at a time!!).... reach into the circle, and light the candle... saying:

I cast this spell.... as I will, so mote it be!

Then walk away.

The burning of the candle engraved with the spell will automatically keeps casting the spell for you over and over and over.

When the candle burns down to almost nothing.... the spell will be cast!!!

This may take a few days, but because your casting it over and over, the spell will be 10 times stronger then if you just do it once!!!!

And no mess, no fuss, you don't have to sit there with it.

But just be sure it's in a secure location, and a safe one.... no need to burn down your house..is there? GIGGLE

Still going.... damn my Mothers brain!!!!

I thought that after I finished cleaning the house, and purifying it for the winter... that I was done!

But, NO, the cleaning frenzy continues.

This happens every winter and spring.... I always blame my Mom for it, I think it's something she installed in my genes!!!

This morning the kitchen faced my wrath!!!!

And even though it tried to run screaming from my cleaning.... it failed to make it out the front door.... and was scrubbed, sprayed, and polished within an inch of it's life!!!!

I'm not talking normal cleaning.... I'm talking washing down the walls type of cleaning!!!

Sigh.... at least it will soon be over, cause there isn't much left in the house I haven't scrubbed like a mad woman!!!!

OHHHHHHH, I like this church!!!! Sign me up, I could use a good foot rub!!!!

I'm so tired of people who.....

I'm so tried of people who no longer keep the old Christmas traditions alive!!!

I love sending out Christmas cards!!!!! I love picking them out, and taking the time to address them, and send them in the mail!!!

I love getting them!!!!! The ones I get I use to decorate my house!!!

But, people, now a days, are so DUMB! They give up the old traditions!!!! Why???

Today I went out and bought my cards, and signed them, and addressed them and stamped them to send out after thanksgiving. I feel it's special, and lets my friends and family know I still care, and love them......

But most of them won't return the favor!!!!

My sister was screaming at me over the phone, "I'm not sending cards this year, so don't send me one!!!"

Well, you know what.... FUCK YOU!!! I'M STILL SENDING THEM OUT!!!!

And if you send me a computer card... I'M NOT GOING TO OPEN IT!!!!

Take the time people, to keep the old traditions, and send out a pretty card to those you love..... believe me, it's worth it!! No matter how lazy they have become!!!

And any of my lady's out there want a card.....

e-mail me at witchbythesea@gmail.com, with your address..... And I'll send one out to you too!!!!

They have kitty's on them this year!!!!!
