Welcome to Week 2 of the Fall Cure. Last week was all about inspiration and vision, this week it's time to roll up those shirt sleeves and get to work! This Week's Assignment, read Week 2 (pages 70-99) and get started on the Deep Treatment, focusing on the kitchen. This means declutter and clean your kitchen from the top down and then cook a meal you actually like!
Smaller things to take care of this week include:
&bull Pick one repair that you can do yourself and DO IT.
&bull Look into filtering your tap water if you don't already
&bull Set a date for you housewarming party (mine is November 10th).
&bull Don't lose sight of the main goal: Deep Cleaning The Kitchen!
If, like Wende in Phoenix, you're doing the One Room Workout, you will probably be focusing on another room in your home. Your task is to arrange the room on paper to best meet your needs. There's a great tool here for that here. Additionally, it is time to take your inspiration and crystallize it into your vision for the project. Remember, once you have a clear port to sail towards, the trip becomes much easier.
Remember to check in with each other in the comments and on the flickr pool. You aren't alone in that kitchen!
