Intentions for the Week

Intentions for the Week- April 24, 2017 Shutterbean.com

Hello hello! I’m currently in New Orleans visiting my maj Joy. We’ve been having a great time. There was a road trip from Nashville to New Orleans thrown in the mix and I’ve met a few cats along the way!!!!

As I write this, I know I have a bunch of things to do when I get home (trying not to stress out about it).  I’m not at home so I can’t sit here on my laptop and stare at my house and figure out what to do. So, I am going to wing it and try to figure out what my week will be like when I get back tomorrow.

Intentions for this week:

  • get home safely from trip to Nashville/New Orleans
  • laundry (always)
  • unpack suitcase
  • yoga x 2
  • trip to the nursery
  • water plants
  • work on garden/trip to nursery
  • send out letters
  • art class on Friday
  • make a recipe
  • write a Currently post for April
  • draw a spread for April in my journal
  • baseball games x 2
  • finish vision board
  • catch up on emails
  • clean out the fridge
  • post pancake recipe
  • drop off library books
  • get packaging supplies for prints

WHAT ABOUT YOU??? What are you up to this week? Share your intentions in the comments! 

  • D

    Do you still shoot for One Potato? Just wondering, since I feel like I haven’t seen you reference it in a while. Anyway, hope you have a great trip!

    • Tracy

      I haven’t shot in awhile since we completed all of their base recipes (over 100 of them!). I think they might have another round soon which means new recipes for their customers!

  • Erica

    Work on my book for 2 hours/day during the work week.

  • Ashley English

    Have you ever tried Thred Up? It’s great for unloading unwanted clothes onto, and, conversely, for purchasing like-new clothes from. I’ve used it for years and love it. Just a thought for something to do with those old clothes! ❤️

    • Jennie

      Yes yes yes yes yes yes, ThredUp. You don’t make a ton of credit, but it’s more than nothing. And they promise nothing goes to a landfill, even if they don’t take all of your items.

  • Jamie

    Let’s see, last week I actually did meditate twice (out of a goal of 7 times, but at least it’s something!), and yoga once, so that’s better than previous weeks!

    This week:

    Final semi-dress rehearsal for dance performance next weekend.
    Also finalize housing in Florida
    First run on packing list for Nashville/Florida trip.
    Yoga x2
    Meditate x5
    Finish sewing coin bra.
    #100daysofplayingwithpaper projects (note to self – have more fun with this!!!)
    Get home and work organized for my absence next week.

    That’s about all I can handle this time. = )
