[Discuss] cron notifications to GUI front end

I have a crontab task to shutdown my system at a specific time each
evening. Shutdown notifications come to terminal windows that are open.
However, When I am logged in and using Atom and Glade to work with some
code, I miss the notification and the system shuts down. What I would like
to do is to write a small GUI GTK3 task pop up in my face so I can stop the
shutdown. One possibility is to write a startup task when I log in. So, I
am looking at ideas.
