Dreaming of a Barefoot Summer...

After a health-related hiatus, I am back online.  Starting to tackle the interiors of THE CONCORD GREEN HEALTHY HOME.

Here's a simple first step to a healthy home -- use walk-off mats at each entrance (inside and out) and take off your shoes.  The Japanese had it right.  There is something about quietly padding around in socks or barefeet that relax you and say "I am home, in my sanctuary of serenity (even if your kids ARE running around and yelling at higher decibels)."  Plus, you won't be dragging in the dirt, pollen and pesticide residues that make it tougher to keep your home clean and healthy.

Here are a couple of beauties worth consideration:
