20/20 cure apartment therapy
Hello ladies! Sorry for being out of action yesterday. I was totally beat after the stress and craziness at work yesterday. I came home, ate dinner, and went to sleep right away. Can’t remember when was the last time I went to sleep that early, may be when I was a baby. I am talking 7:30 pm people 🙂
However dinner last night was an Indian feast not prepared by me! We got take out. Since I am off rice, we ordered Malai Kofta and a chicken dish with Samosa from the restaurant and the Quinoa to go along side was prepped at home. I did not even miss the rice!
My plate with a big salad!
Love to eat Indian food that does not involve me in the kitchen 🙂
I am on an oatmeal kick right now. Made some with apple sauce, ground flax, cinnamon and brown sugar! Warm breakfast on a cold morning!
I joined Sarah in the 20/20 home cure for your apartment assignment. According to the method illustrated by Maxwell, you do cleaning/organizing/ inspirational assignments for 20 minutes everyday for 20 days for a more happier home.
Monday: For 20 minutes,
Clean and vacuum one room dust the furniture and any art work in that room.
- Clean your butcher block with bee’s wax and linoleum. Don’t have this so did not do it!
Tuesday: Get flowers.
- Buy flower and arrange them through out the apartment to beautify it. I forgot to bring them on my way home. I’ll do this task when I hit Fresh Marker over the weekend!
Today: Find inspirational photos. This assignment is particularly interesting. It took me back almost 20 years. My Mum maintained a diary when we were little and my parents were young parents. We lived in a rented apartment then, but she would tear out pictures of living room furniture, paintings, wall color, or embroidery and neatly glue and label them so that she had a record of stuff she imagined for her dream home. 5 years later, my Mum and Dad bought a home with four walls and turned into their dream home. Somehow that memory stayed buried deep in my mind for all these years and surfaced today.
In this assignment we are supposed to collect some inspirational photos from the internet, magazines or books that we think will be a part of our future dream home. Great assignment and something I can relate to!
Here are some,
Love this entry way foyer. I love colors and designs.
I am so excited about this. This assignment is now going to turn into a habit. I’ll keep searching and collecting. Why didn’t I think of this earlier.
30 min of Yoga slimdown with Jessie Schein.
One food that you totally despise? I cannot stomach mayonnaise.
I thought Vegenaise would be a great substitute for the mayo. But honestly something about the white color and heaviness does not go well with me.
Have you pictured what your future dream home will look like? If you already own a house, did you plan a lot for the interiors?
