While we were gone ...

My mom did commit a murder ... I have to be honest about it

Here are the pictures ...

Caution: graphic pictures ahead! Please, make sure your children are not with you ...


































Yep ! in 7 days she managed to kill our chile plant/tree She didn't water it at all and it didn't resist the apartment's heat ... We grew that chile plant from seeds Chuy brought from Mexico ... It is extremly spicy and he loves it !!! Well there is hope but I don't know if it will be enough ...

For her defense, and I think she needs to hire a professional lawyer here, she said she didn't see it That tree touch the ceiling and in a small appartment, you can't avoid it Well, let's be positive ... the goldfish is still alive


Being a couch potatoe can sometimes be more productive than we think !!! Look at my bunny girl:

She's all ready to kiss that boy I'm wondering if she's not too young to start kissing guys?

OMG that poor tree. Good luck to you on bringing it back to life. The one sprout may be just enough to keep it going.

I'm just amazed at your bunny. That is just too cute. I look forward to tomorrow's progress pic.

Reading your blog is so fun. Every morning I wake up and drink a tea while checking blog reader and to see all your progress is just one of the best parts.

Hugs,

I hope the tree makes it, against all odds. I love spicy chiles!!

When my MIL last watched our house, the plants were fine but the fish died. LOL!

Cathy said...

Aww, poor tree!

"Go on an' KISS de girl."

Your darling bunny makes me sing Little Mermaid songs.

I'm gonna stick my nose in here. Ignore me and I won't have my feelings hurt. Keep an eye on your chile plant and see if new growth sprouts where the leaves join the stems. If not (and especially if that new shoot starts to look sad) you might want to trim off some of the dead branches. SOMEtimes that will encourage new growth from the lower parts of the branches. This is assuming 1)that it has never gone dormant for you before (some plants just die back like that in the winter, then grow again in the spring) or 2)that it is not an annual or a biennial. An annual will die back after a year or so, a biennial after two no matter what you do...

Usually.

Good luck. And throw Mama on the mercy of the court.

Hi! I'm Michelle said...

Oh Chiloe!! Your poor chile plant! I'm sure you can revive it. I think you can do anything. :) Now your chile plant looks like it belongs at my house... my husband says I have the wporld's largest plant cemetary out behind the garage. That's where all my dead potted plants end up, waiting for me to reuse the pots. It's such a sad scene...

Your stitching is amazing and your blog is so much fun! Thanks for visiting mine... you are entered in my contest! :)

lol yep definitely looks too young, but then bunnies start young so they say and if you dont hurry up and finish it you could be stitching a load more bunnies.

Oh your poor poor plant, maybe if you go away again you should get your mum some strong glasses before you go lol.

Poor, poor tree. I hope your mother gets some good legal advice. LOL Bunny girl looks adorable.

As for my pants... The ones I had on yesterday weren't made for belt which is why I was using a safety pin. LOL
