fading beauty

I know I'm supposed to be on a self-imposed decluttering break and I still am.  We've packed up about 8 boxes of old toys, 4 boxes of books, a large pile of outdoor items, 3 bags on their way to good will, 1 bag on it's way to my niece's, etc.  I'm starting to feel like I have some elbow room.  We still have a long way to go, but one does need to take a break even when on a break, no? 

I stopped in to let you know I changed my banner over the weekend.  With the weather so cool these days, the beach banner was making me feel chilly.  Summer has faded out and though the coolness speaks of fall, nature has yet to make agreement and so the colors, still there, are beginning to fade and change.  As such, I thought I would make a new banner while in this seasonal transition of my summer geranium fading out.  In it's summer brilliance, it looked like this:

Those days are over now and it has been quietly going to sleep for the past two weeks to make room for the celebration of fall.   Now I must go and get a bit more things done.  I was planning on painting one of the basement rooms today, but I am behind.  My dear son J (I really need to use that term to remind myself) wasn't feeling well so he went for a nap.  When he woke, he didn't make it to the bathroom and sadly he vomited off the top of his bunk bed.  *yuck*  It was all over his blankets, his brother's blankets, the wall, the floor, I'm sure you can just imagine and I'm still doing the laundry.   It's times like these that I wish I had my mother's gift for sick kids.
