Yesterday was the best father's day ever, because my kids spent the whole day with their father so I got the whole day off. Unintentional on his part, sure, but still glorious. Anyway, I went to Target and I got 1 pack of bar towels, 1 pack of "multipurpose" rags (these look like washclothes) and 1 pack of scrubbing dishclothes, which are the coolest things I have ever seen. (Okay, not really, but they are very cool). Basically, they are like washclothes on one side, and have a mesh sown into the other side, for scrubbing. The total for these three things was $15.00.
My sponge is really new, so I am going to finish it up before switching over, but I used the rags for cleaning the counter and that worked out well.
I did have to use paper towels, though, when my three year old peed on the floor this morning. He's potty training, and apparently terrified to point his penis down. I mean, I *guess* it's better to pee on the floor than to be a 3 1/2 year old who wears pull ups... I'm not sure who it's better for, though. The environment? Bounty? Sigh.
A quick garden update: broccoli is ripe, nearly overrips, and I can't stop eating it. Rhubarb is yummy, I made the rhubarb crisp recipe from You Grow Girl and it was really, really good. My Early Girl tomato plant has a tiny green tomato, and my eggplants have purple flowers. And I apparently grow basil really well, as I have A. TON. of it. Yum.
