Weekly Intentions

My Week’s Intentions

Well, I do believe I was a little too ambitious with my list of intentions last week, especially having just had a skin cancer excised from my leg. I didn’t realize it would hurt as much as it did.

But nonetheless, I was able to cross a few things off my list. I’m thinking this week’s list should be shorter, since I have yet another surgery this week too.

(Ps… I’ll be glad when all of these procedures are over. Must remember to breathe through the next few weeks.)

Last week’s intentions:

  1. Write my weekly intentions on Sunday.
  2. Notice the little things/moments each day.
  3. Take more pictures.
  4. Take Bella for a longer than usual walk after work.
  5. Upload pictures of bakes to my Gallery page.
  6. Make lemon curd (and not let my lemons go bad).
  7. Make a chocolate and orange tart.
  8. Try to make mil hojas.
  9. Do laundry.
  10. Tidy up our guest room.
  11. Vacuum and clean bathrooms.
  12. Plan meals for the week.
  13. Arrange my growing assortment of cake plates above our kitchen cabinets.
  14. Start researching places to visit in South Africa, including bakeries. (Still can’t believe I’m going!!)
  15. Research a weekend trip to Charleston, Savannah, or Beaufort.
  16. Take a moment before going to bed each day for reflection – either by writing in my journal or documenting here with a picture, poem, or story.
  17. Make more swiss meringue buttercream to play with!

 

This week’s intentions:

  1. Take Bella for a longer than usual walk after work.
  2. Upload pictures of bakes to my Gallery page.
  3. Take a moment before going to bed each day for reflection – either by writing in my journal or documenting here with a picture, poem, or story.
  4. Make more swiss meringue buttercream to play with.
  5. Take 3 minutes every day (whenever, wherever I can) to breathe deep, even breaths to bring myself back to center.
  6. Start planning EG’s birthday cake.
  7. Finish reading Circling the Sun.

 

My mantra for the week: There is no need to hurry. Breathe and give it time. 

Wishing you a week of easy, comforting, and loving moments to soothe away the rough edges when they appear.
