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!

We are now on week 14 of 2019! It’s the first day of April! This weekend was a busy one. We had a birthday celebration for my brother and my friend Jessica is in town visiting. Sunday routines were abandoned as we spent time together at our friend’s house for dinner.  Life happens!!!  This week will be a busy one with a friend visit in the mix.  I didn’t have much time to get a lot done yesterday, so I spent a few minutes doing a Costco order on Instacart. We’ll be set for a bunch of things for the month now, and I didn’t have to spend almost 2 hours going to/from Costco and buying lots of unecessary items because I can be tempted in person. Small victories!  That’s how I’m making technology work for me this week.  Here’s a $10 off code for your first order if you want to get ahead of the week and have someone do the shopping for you!

    Thank you for posting these ‘intentions for the week’. They inspire me to plan, and be a little more thoughtful and conscious about how I spent my time. Plus, it’s always fun to peek into other people’s worlds!
    Wishing you a wonderful week.

  • Cate

    I adore this blog and love how you let the world into your life. I come here for recipes and inspiration and gorgeous photos, and just to read about your everyday stories. Thank you for sharing!

    I like the intentions posts, and they’ve inspired me to do the same. Have you thought about creating an “intentions” journal, and sell them like your food journals? Just a thought…I’d buy one!

    Thank you for the reminder of former Paul Wellstone’s saying about all doing better when we all do better. No one can replace him! (I think this was on the next week’s post.) JW
