What's On My . . . Monday?


I found this meme on Ali Edwards's blog, though she credits her sister. I thought it made a nice variation for my Monday morning check-in. Today's photograph is of the apple tree which is finally starting to blossom

What's On My . . . 
VANITY:  Toothbrush and toothpaste; Decleor skin care products; Deva Curl hair care products; our wedding Budda.
PERENNIAL TO DO LIST: Clean up my art desk; Clean out the garage; Clean up my office at work; Edit the vacation pictures from last summer; Work on my heritage/genealogy scrapbook. 
REFRIGERATOR SHELVES: Lots of leftovers; milk; sparkling water; apple juice; cheese; cauliflower; asparagus.
ITINERARY:  A trip to Detroit at the end of week to do some work for the United Auto Workers; Gypsy gets a much-needed grooming on Thursday.
FANTASY ITINERARY: Australia; Greece; Hawaii.
PLAYLIST: The Avett Brothers new album; Rebel Beat by the Goo Goo Dolls; Aint Messin Round by Gary Clark; 93 Million Miles by Jason Mraz; Tightrope by Walk the Moon; San Francisco by the Mowglis; Modern Love by Matt Nathanson; Stubborn Love by The Lumineers; and Hero by Family of the Year
NIGHTSTAND:  A bottle of Smartwater (my favorite); my jewelry box; a heart shaped rock from Deb Turtle; a guardian angel shrine.
WORKOUT PLAN:  Strength and stretch class at my gym; power blast class at the gym; long run (10 miles) on the weekend; medium run (6 miles) on Wednesday.
IPHONE: MLB.com At Bat; Splice; Shazam; Fandango; Snapseed; Instagram; and Netflix.
TOP 5 (To Do) LIST1. Make sure Henry gets his homework done. 2. Write exams for my classes. 3. Fold the laundry. 4. Talk to Henry about a college decision. 5. Prepare for the last week of class.
BUCKET LIST: To see wildflowers bloom in the desert. . . and a few other things.
MIND: The value of spending time focusing on Clara, first-and-foremost as a parent, but occasionally as a friend. Planning for Henry's 18th birthday.
BLOGROLL: Most of you! 
WALLS OF YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE: Nothing but yellow paint on the walls of our bedroom; prints by Thomas Killian in our living room.
LIQUOR SHELF: Dark rum for Rum and Cokes; Stoli Vodka for martinis; and Sapphire Gin for Gin and Tonics. We're always short of the mixers, though!
LAST CREDIT CARD STATEMENT:  Dinner out way too often!
SCREENSAVER: An awesome baseball portrait of my son taken by the amazing Becky Ruppel is on my phone; a cute picture of Gypsy on my computer.  I change my phone screen saver all the time, but I rarely change the one on the computer.
TV EVERY NIGHT: San Francisco Giants baseball; we watch almost every game. And then, whenever I get a chance - Mad Men; Top of the Lake; Nashville; CSI; Body of Proof; Vegas; Project Runway; Grey's Anatomy; Chicago Fire. Yes, I'm a bit of an addict.

Love this Rinda! I saw it on Ali's blog and thought I'd have a go too. Another interesting peek into your life:)

beautiful photo and great list - been thinking of doing it too. I love Project runway too

Mary B said...

I like that photo the colouring is so unusual
I also like the idea of a list like that, no good at to do list but I fancy doing this one as it is more like thought processing than 'got to do'

Gail said...

That perennial to do list looks so familiar just change art desk to scrapbooking desk. :) Ok, I need to go check this out on Ali's blog. You're going to be so near me but still so far later in the week. (:

Alison said...

I love this Rinda, Your perennial to do list could be mine and your Liquor shelf, change the rum to white and it is mine. :)

Amy said...

I also saw this on Ali's blog - I think the prompts really give an insight to life of the blogger ... homework had to be on the agenda here tonight ... my fridge could tell a story all of its own!

Karen said...

Fascinating list! I've been too busy and am way behind on reading Ali's blog so I hadn't seen this one. I'm glad to see others have a perennial to do list! Have a great week!

Sian said...

I think I could probably combine at least a couple of these and say - what's on my perennial to do list? Clean my refrigerator shelves!

It's a great list

NatashaMay said...

What fun to read your "what's on my" lists. :)

Melissa said...

What a neat look at What's On in your world! My perennial to-do list looks very similar except that my craft table is clean & I finally got all last year's photos processed!

Julia said...

Love this list - a great thing to read as a post.

A tiny window into your life Rinda. Sounds like you are living it well.

Great list of things! Making sure the boys do their homework is always on the top of my to do list.

Looks like such a full and fun life!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Oh, I love this list, Rinda. It made me smile to know that the heart rock I gave you is on your nightstand. ♥

You always have such a cool set of music going on - don't you just LOVE Jason's 93 Million Miles song? Fav!!!

Planning an 18th birthday party sounds like fun. I'm hoping my son will let me plan a party for his 16th birthday. He'd rather have a small group of family (much like me), but I enjoy seeing him with his friends.
