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.'
