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:

Hello Hello. It’s Monday! A new week to get started on. Did you have a good weekend? Mine was pretty good. My friend had came to town from Sacramento for a sleepover and we talked non-stop and went on Marin adventures. Good for the soul! Except maybe I stayed up too late and had doughnuts and bourbon. Also my throat hurts from talking so much.  Sign of a good time! This week I’ve got quite a few things on the agenda. My house is a mess right now and I have to jam on it and clean it up this week between doing all the other things I gotta do. We still have to figure out our Halloween plans/costumes etc. Are you gonna be anything good? Thinking of wearing my panda costume from a few years ago and calling it a DAY.

This Week’s Intentions:

  • make turkey white bean chili
  • make kombucha
