My day started at 7 AM today with Weight Watchers where their scale showed I lost 4/10 of a pound last week. I spend the rest of Saturday on the house. As you may recall from last Saturday, I am going through the process in Mindy Starns Clark's book, The House That Cleans Itself, and she took a year with her house. It will take more than a week. Fortunately DH finally decided to mow the front lawn while I worked. (I had treatened to hire someone to mow it, but he said NO and did come through today.)
At 11:30 AM I put an easy chicken recipe from Pinterest for dinner in the crockpot. My link for Pinterest is at the bottom right and I put it under Healthy Food. I used light broth and healthy soup and another brand of stuffing. The smells permeated the house while I worked on areas one and two. HBZ area one is essentially done and here is the report.

How is this helping my Alzheimer's husband? In the master bathroom, the products that he uses are under his sink along with a basket of towels--and nothing else. I can easily see what is needed. He couldn't find eye glass lense cleaners, and being so disorganized, I bought more. Now we have four boxes you might be able to see at the left. I can go into this cupboard and easlily see if he needs more Efferdent or Sea Bond for his false teeth. This bathroom should not confuse him in the future.
The master shower was redone several years ago and it is large and easy to get into. Hubby can use a shower chair and a hand held Price Pfister Multi-Function Shower System with Adjustable Slide Bar when needed in the future by himself or with someone helping him. I washed the cowboy design curtains I had made (can't remember when I had done that before in the eleven years we have lived here). I stopped at not cleaning the tile in the shower because of my carpel tunnel hands and wrists. I will have someone else clean it. Maybe hubby will--which product below should he use for our hard water?

Anthing in your home that's likely to get messy looking over time should be placed outside the Sight Zone (p. 143).
