DIY Chair Upholstery

I've never noticed all the eye sores/dullness around my place till now.  I don't know if I can credit her for this, but my place is currently getting a serious uplift!  Everyday I catch Fatima staring at things around the house, and it really gets me thinking--wow, we need some change in here!  But really, it's probably because it's starting to get chilly out, so we're inside all day, and my baby is clingier than ever!  And since I'm holding her all day, I observe what she observes, and when she falls asleep (ever so rarely), it becomes my golden opportunity to get things done!

DIY Nursery

Power lines down, trees split in half, detours upon detours.  The tristate wreaked havoc, running on generators and scrambling to get bits and pieces back together before dusk.  Daylight never felt so brief.  As darkness fell, homes flickered with dim light, just enough for families to prepare for an early bedtime.
