Meltdown

It's been nasty weather here lately.
Temps in the mid 30s during the day
...not so bad...
but the nights have been mid 20s and that doesn't give the house a chance to cool down.
It's steamy and humid, sticky and muggy.
Lots of swimming is going on, along with plenty of cool showers, minimum clothing and the humming of airconditioners.


In my search for coolness and  simplicity I've decided to declutter my life.
Now that's not easy, I've been a collector of stuff for a long time and have hoards of belongings.
Most of which I don't need or even really like anymore.
Don't get me wrong, the bloke is not about to be cast adrift in a sea of flotsam and jetsam but I'm seriously thinking of culling the unnecessary in my life.
First I'll start with my blog. Do you like my new look?

I love the new look... I have been thinking of something similar... I have simplified a bit more than it was.... but this is great

Oh I think it looks very sad. Even your photo looks out of place. I like a bit more colour.

I love the photo on your new header. The sea is such a gorgeous colour. Makes you think of tropical isles. It sounds like you have had the weather to match. However, I miss the sidebars on your blog. I don't think I could be very ruthless with all my bits and bobs, I'm too much of a collector.

Sue, it's very clean and the water gives a calm and cool effect. I like it.

I love it, but then you know I like a crisp clean look on blogs. You can focus on what's important... the words and pics (which incidently are very good) :o)
