this plant was getting too tall and gangly, so we chopped off it's top and tried to grow some roots. that didn't work, and i figured the stump was dead (plus being chewed by SOMEBODY!) but lo and behold life comes forth!
and a happy domestic purchase today. we needed new dish cloths and i don't find a lot of the pretty ones (like skinny laminx and nice linen) very absorbent, and the beautiful turkish ones i wanted are too expensive. i had pretty much given in to the fact that i would just have to settle for some boring stripes in garish colours, when i found these little gems at homesense. i bought two packs of them so when these wear out i won't have to search again. me=1, ugly dish towels=0
