Moving into the 2nd week of October. Weather here is still so so and am hoping that it starts to warm up just a little. Last full week before the wedding and I have a few things to do.

Moisturise morning,
Water throughout day,
Shower/bath at night,
Brush teeth,
Lip balm,
Hand cream,
Clean kitchen and DW on before bed.
Read and sleep at reasonable time.

Now that HGP and HHP have started look at HGP. Is it working for me? How can I improve it? More seasonal cleaning ?
Maybe a fusion of both, take what I like from each one and make my own plan. I have time now to look at them both. Will look at this over the next few weeks and come up with a plan for 2022

I can't believe the wedding is almost here, Katrina!

The leaves are changing over to yellow and burgundy now. The weather has been cloudy most days. I'll take that over rain right now. I do hope to get outdoors and do some fall clean up in the gardens.
