• Cure Clock: 48 days Remaining
• Assignment: Read Ch. 2, tackle the kitchen or work on your room’s floorplan
• Flickr Pool: East Fall Cure Pool

Welcome to week two everyone and stay healthy! Remember that while this is not a long process, it is long enough for the need to pace yourself, and to be pragmatic. Give strength when you can, take it when you need it and don’t overshoot. Also, when you start moving things and making change in your home, you will be stirring up old, dead energy and this stuff can make you emotional, bring you down and even make you sick. Clean it quickly and move on! This is not easy, but it is rewarding…

This Week’s Assignment: Last week you got inspired, this week you go to work. In the Deep Treatment you are going to focus on the kitchen. You will declutter and clean your kitchen from the top down and then cook a meal you actually like! There are other smaller tasks as well, such as filtering your tap water and planning a housewarming, but the kitchen is your target.

In the One Room Workout, you will probably be focusing on another room in your home. At this point, your task is to arrange the room on paper to best meet your needs. 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.

Arrangement floral by bossykena.

>> Fresh flowers have never looked like this. Bossykena seems to be French, but her caption reads: “Les fleurs du vin et fromage 12e édition…”. I think the challenge is ON for most remarkable flower arrangement….
