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! Happy Monday, friends!  Cooper has Monday and Tuesday off of school so we’re enjoying some family time this week. Hopefully we will get to do a little family adventure.  Over the weekend we went to a crab dinner with my dad & friends and I painted the main wall in my office green.


Every week, Tracy Benjamin from Shutterbean.com types up her TO DO list with her Intentions for the Week post. Check out this week's post!

I’ve been in a cooking rut for the past few months.

I’m hoping to turn it around with some playtime in the kitchen.

What about you? What are you up to this week?


  • Nicole

    My list is small: Laundry, Do the the GD dishes!, take boxes to recycling, and call a credit counseling service. If I added anymore, I’d get overwhelmed and not do anything.

    Stealing your idea for a mantra for the week: get up, show up.

  • Preeti

    Would love to see how you use Instant pot as part of your meal prep or weekly meals.

  • Sarah

    I need a mental health day. I can feel myself getting into an unhealthy head space and I believe that I need Friday to get myself back on track. I have things I have to get done at the bank and might treat myself to a trip to trader joe’s (it’s over 50 miles away). I also need to purge so many things to clear space in the house but I need a motivator.

  • Laurie Crouch

    I absolutely love that shade of green!
    Think I’m gonna paint my bathroom that color, Lord knows it needs a paint job!
    Have put it off for a few yrs, health reasons, but, think I will put my grandkids to work!
    Thanks for the inspiration!!!
    Love your blog, your lists, life & intentions.

    Side note, I’ve thought of you often since you lost your Momma. My Mother was killed in an accident in 02, I’m still not over it. Just know you’ve been in my thoughts & prayers.

  • Mandi

    You’re taking requests for food ideas? Hooray! My employer recently reduced the amount of days that we can work from home so now my days are filled with long commutes. I’m looking for easy, healthy, fast family dinners.

  • Megan

    For the past two weeks, my routine has been all busted up. Which has been fine and all, but it means I have two weeks of almost blank planner pages, and I do not work well without clear direction. (From myself. I know.) So, this week:
    -make a plan for the next 3 days, and maybe even jump into next week. Whoa!
    -work on commissioned sewing projects [which are the most difficult, mentally]
    -prep veggies from CSA box
    -start working on a list for spring cleaning, and maybe start cleaning up the backyard
    -find and start reading a new book

    I know it’s been done to death, but I love new ideas for food in bowls. I make sushi bowls, and burrito bowls, and ramen. But I’d love to switch it up and always like seeing what other people are doing. And your meal prep is always a fave. Ooh, and I’d like to give another go at canning, especially small-batch stuff. Wouldn’t you like to go first?? 😉

    • Katelyn

      Megan – another food in bowls that I love is an Indian-inspired one. Make a dressing with a can of full fat coconut milk, 2 T curry powder, salt, and the juice of a lime. Then in your bowl, do a grain (I like basmati rice), roasted cauliflower, protein of choice, cilantro, and peanuts or cashews – top with the dressing. I’d love to see what Tracy comes up with, too!

  • Kathryn

    That green!!! Oh I am in love with it!

  • Sarah

    would love to see how green office wall turned out, if you can post a photo sometime.
    I love your design style.
    Thanks for sharing!
