Mel, do you decorate outside only or inside too for Fall?

I may try decorating next week if it is cooler. Last week the temperature was cool enough that it felt like fall was approaching. This week is so different. It is humid and rather warm.

I only decorate the inside, the winds are so bad here that the outside decorations just blow away.

The Master is the room I most want to work on and finish. We did some major sheetrock changes on it right before the pandemic and I never really finished with the decor. It's "fine" but not the oasis I really want it to be. That's because I can't decide what I want that oasis to look like. Well, I can picture it but I find that ever since Covid, things are hard to find in stores. And I have developed a HUGE aversion to online shopping. So what is happening? I'm stalling. Ugh. Deep breaths. I am going to make something happen though. Probably a single major purchase that will propel me forward methinks. Hopefully the window seat cushions. I have an awkward window that, while I love it, makes things a little difficult to decorate around with any sort of practicality. I have a LOT of windows in this house. My kingdom for a sold wall! I think I'm going to get some online interior design help on that one. Just need to do it. Okay. That's happening this week too!

I'm not on my "lists" right now either. The ones we all use weekly? I'm kinda ballparking it because I have so much going on. Why do we put our kids in extracurriculars? It just makes everything so crazy. I'm getting too old for this! :)

So this week I've been decluttering like crazy. Purging the hotspots. DH and I got a load out to the dump and Goodwill last week and we are trying for a another one today. (the usual suspect areas like the mudroom and garage where everything collects.). Once we are through the OBVIOUS decluttering I want to get on a roll for the less obvious. Has anyone ever played the Mim's Declutter Game? I'm thinking about posting it for everyone on our site and starting it next week. It's basically 30 days with 1 item on Day 1, 2 items on Day 2 etc. Supposed to be really good for building declutter muscles.....I thought it might work nicely with our current plan? With the kids getting older I just want to manage less "stuff".
