This morning I have a headache and am very tired from the stress of watching the chaos unfold yesterday. I stayed up until 1AM... when they protested Pennsylvania's electoral college. Thankfully, they did their job and certified the results of the fair election and President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will be given their Oath to uphold the constitution of the United States on January 20th at noon.
Other than saying I was appalled watching fellow Americans become terrorists by breaking into the sacred house of democracy attempting to overthrow our government, I sincerely hope that peace and common sense will prevail and that the Constitution of the United States will be maintained and the will of the people and democracy will prevail. It is a sad state in the world where this happens anywhere, but especially in your own country. I am writing this for me, for my feelings. This has been building for the last 4 years and no one should be surprised by it, but I sincerely hope that cooler heads will prevail and that they will finally do what is right and remove all the elected officials that are not doing their duty to country in the Oath they took to Uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.
I had made a new meal in the crock pot last night - Greek Chicken. (It was OK. If I make it again less olives and don't forget the feta cheese!) I put placemats out on the table and told everyone the rice and meal was ready. The tv was on in the living room and the kids and I were watching the chaos. I left to go get them around 3:10 so was offline until 4ish when I picked them up and got off the school campus where I had internet access again. I handed the phone to Aidan in the back seat and said check CNN and see what is going on. I had asked if they were aware of the riot, they were not. We listened to Biden's speech - very Presidential according to the kids. When everyone filled their plate.... they all looked at me then wandered into the living room to watch the events unfolding on tv. History was happening.
I pieced this flowering snowball last night once the congress was back in session. It was very soothing to stitch. I need to prep more parts today with the cutter. Emily draped them over Peanut who took over my chair when I got up to get the photo's.
