working on the "cure"

Fresh flowers and clean floors.  That was the remedy that I was to work on this week of apartment therapy.  The flowers are to heal the heart of the home and the clean floors are for the breath.  My husband fixed a hole in the bathroom ceiling, which is helping to heal the bones.  The only part we have yet to work on is the head of our home - how we use it and how well it allows us to do what we would like to, which is not very well right now.

But having clean floors goes quite a long way in motivating furniture shifts - no fear of monster dust bunnies.  And having fresh flowers, well, I highly recommend it.  Maxwell (of apartment therapy) says to think that you are buying the flowers as a gift for your home.  And they are.  They sit here at the table with me and greet us when we come in the door.  They are a breath of fresh air and a reminder to slow down and be thankful for the simple beauty of a few flowers.  I'm taking time today to 'stop and smell the roses.'
