AT Fall Cure: Days 7 & 8. The Halloween Edition

Day 7: Buy Flowers and sit for 10 minutes

The flowers we bought a few days ago are doing really well!

I didn't sit. I really don't have time. I have to prepare for school next week--last week I timed it and discovered it take 3 1/2 hours--when I have stuff prepared--and I'm not prepared this week. Additionally, I have th Big Shop this Tuesday: so I have to do my pantry inventory and big shop for the month. Last month I timed how long that took: four hours. So, the only place I'm sitting is behind the eight ball.

Day 8: Establish a Landing Strip

I was looking through some old pictures from past cures and I found this one from of my Front Hallway.

It looks like this today:

Fresher, I think, and cheerier, menacing spider notwithstanding. More in keeping with the colourful fresh vibe I want to live in.

The back door is also a busy place: at Aby's suggestion, I hung up a pocket organizer. It's supposed to go inside a closet, I think, and hold socks and shoes and what not, but it is perfect in this narrow space for dog leashes and toys, gardening implements and gloves, sunglasses and things. I just painted the strip: obviously, that blue clashes with the pocket organizer and I need to re-do it. It's a quick job, really, but not one I expect to get to for a long time, yet.

Because I already have landing strips, I washed the walls and vacuumed the floors. Good to get it done. That's all I'll say about that.

every time I see that little nook in your entry I sigh with envy. I just love that little spot so much!

Your landing strip is very bright and inviting (spider is cool! and thankfully not real.) My landing strip is dreadfully cluttered at the moment. I need a real kick in the pants to get back at the ongoing apartment therapizing here. I've been neglecting the house-organizing chores in favour of writing, which is more fun, and hopefully one day will be lucrative (if only in a small way). But the clutter is taking over again!

You're doing such a good job. Brava!
