Eastern Fall Cure: Getting Into the Thick of It

Eastern Fall Cure: Getting Into the Thick of It

I love this image from myumisays31. I don't know where it's from, but the wall looks like long velvet and the "tree" is a "feather tree". The rich colors and sultry quality of the room are worth bookmarking. Very Lenny Kravitz.

Quote of the Day from Pic Above: I recently upgraded to a laptop and have my old desktop in the "outbox" (just waiting to donate the CPU and recycle the gargantuan monitor)...having less wires and less of a presence (that monitor was HUGE) is making a world of difference in my bedroom! - UWSretreat

It is an absolute pleasure to check in with you all today and I'm impressed how well this Cure seems to be going. Usually spirits can be pretty low around this time. Keep up the good work and don't forget to list the things you accomplish in this or Monday's post.

Because this week is about the office, I'm curious how much work you all do at home.

This Week's Assignment: In the Deep Treatment, among other things you are diving into the home office and tackling all the computer and electrical tangles that you may have. You are also considering a Media Fast, which is a rather radical part of our household cleaning binge.

As for wireless technology, this simply offers a tremendous design advantage that eliminates wires and clutter for those who work at home on laptops, which is also now easy and inexpensive to set up. Our Unplggd site was started specifically to aid in this area...

In the One Room Workout you will be getting into real color, painting color that is. We had a great time writing this part of the book and remembering all that we had learned over the years about painting. In particular, we were happy to be able to lay out some healthier paint alternatives, though we've found it hard to integrate these choices into NYC life. We'd be interested to hear any tips on this subject.
