I've been sleeping more than usual. I feel I am fighting a cold but then again, it might be side effects from one of my newer medications. I've had 5-6 colds since the start of 2016 and that doesn't seem plausible though I do have friends who have had such a high number of colds. It is just that I don't generally get colds. I've also recently learned that one of my medications can cause upper respiratory tract infections. I will have to check into this in more detail with the doctor soon.
The colder weather is on the way I've been on the hunt for some stylish hats and vests that are a bit on the dressier side. I've heard that we can expect a colder than usual winter season and I want to make sure I have the right attire that can also be worn for nights out to the symphony or concert. I managed to find two hats and a nice cosy vest which I think will work nicely.
The weather has been sunny all week but the rain returned today. Hopefully we get more sunshine in another few days. In the meantime I decided to delay my trip for laboratory tests due to the inclement weather.

Once I made that decision, it freed me to gather together some unwanted or unused clothing, books and DVDs and a few kitchen items (coffee pot, bread machine and pots and pans). I've posted most of it for giveway and have had some good interest. I was able to get rid of a lot of clothing and DVDs today and tomorrow others are coming for other things. My decluttering is part of the Kon Marie process of tidying up even though I'm not exactly following her order of things. I am not following her order because at the moment, I'm trying to get rid of some of the more obvious stuff that needs to go. It will take me longer to sort through everything and that will still happen for later giveaways.
Truth be told, I haven't been very good about progressing on the Kon Marie method since I began the effort a few months ago. I've just been too busy with the garden, the summer guests, the task and errands and then my mother's hospitalization.. But little efforts here and there add up to larger efforts. Eventually it will all come together. I'm hoping this Fall and early Winter season I can make good progress in this area. I certainly have enough projects to keep me busy. I mentioned several of them in my last post but forgot to mention the "Kon Marie Project".
Since the sky is gloomy I've added a few flower photos here. These are from my archives.
Where I live the media from around the globe have descended. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their two children are in beautiful British Columbia for a quick royal visit. You may see some photos in the news where you live.
