A Breath of Fresh Air

It is a breath of fresh air just to know that organizations like this exist.

Cut back on air conditioning and heating use if you can. Insulate your home, water heater and pipes. Things I am doing: Switched out the bulbs, making sure I continue to recycle, got rid of the car awhile ago and I am using Philly Car Share (most of their cars are Hybrids) and I'm taking the bus too. This means I driv

Tabi's 13th B-Day

For Tabi's 13th b-day I took her out shopping, and to get her pictures taken. Then she had a sleep-over later that evening. Early that morning. Photos taken at the Gallery: Children at the party singing Happy Birthday. (I don't know why she's looking down at her phone) A bunch of girls in the kitchen. My house was so crowded. Tabi & Puff dipping ice cream. Naeemah & Salimah eating yummy cake. The little girlies. Gifts were pretty much just gift certificates and cards. This one is a gift cert. for Borders, I thought that was a good one :)
