Welcome to our Fall Home Cure! This week we get going by walking around our home, cleaning, taking on a few small tasks and creating a vision for our home. This is the week we chart our course and decide the goals for this particular Cure, and it is good to remember not to bite off too much. You can always come back in the spring and do more, and it's important to be successful and really finish something now...

For myself, I am undertaking a number of small jobs that focus primarily on getting some color into our bedroom. I painted the headboard yesterday and you can see my whole slideshow here:

As happy as I am with what I did, I am not happy with the final effect and now want to make a real headboard with fabric (the same size). This will take place during the next few weeks.

As you clean, list repairs and chart your course, do tell me and everyone else, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WORK ON?

I'll be looking for your responses and pics in the comments below.

We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post on each of these days and everyone is urged to take pics and post them here.

REMEMBER: The goal is to use the group to support, inspire and answer questions as you go. The more you participate, the more you will get out of it. But you may also lurk if you are shy ;-).
