Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends! It’s been hot here in the Bay Area (102F!) and I don’t want to do A THING. I just want to sit on my couch and eat an ice cold cantaloupe with a fan pointed at my face. I have to remind myself of some snack dinners that might get us through this heat wave.  Gotta push on through the week!!  I didn’t post an Intentions for the Week last week (I opted for my Summer Bucket List) and it threw me off. That’s a good sign that showing up and writing down what I want to accomplish HELPS. Right?  Time to clear my head and get it all out there:


  • clean out fridge/do a deep clean
  • make a master cleaning schedule for my house
  • research dentist/make doctor appt for physical  (uggh)
  • meal prep
  • figure out which prints to sell next
  • clean up my workspace/put books away
  • make a batch of kombucha
  • move files over to hard drive
  • make it so I have two eyebrows and not one
  • get Cooper a haircut (totally behind on this)
  • yoga x 2  and maybe a hike if I can
  • make a list of camping supplies/packing list
  • catch up on social media
  • do some solid stretches (my body is feeling STIFF)
  • prep gguest room for company
  • catch up on writing letters/mail letters + thank you notes
  • make a pasta salad recipe for the blog
  • shoot apron photos
  • shoot ice cream floats
  • trip to the dump?
  • EAT OUTSIDE as much as possible
  • leisure reading if I can (currently enjoying Theft by Finding by David Sedaris)

What about you?

What are you up to this week?

Let’s see what you’ve got planned!

Sometimes I forget how much I love cantaloupe. It’s so good when it’s FREEZING COLD.
