Can you relate to this story?
Deb decides to start this week out right, for a change. Good-bye procrastination, hello dissertation, she thinks. She pats on over to the computer, still wearing her jammies. Deb’s coffee hadn’t done a thing for her brain fog yet so she does a quick email scan. Becca has written her with “Mom’s birthday” in the subject line. “Oh crap,” Deb thinks, “I forget about Mom’s birthday.” She HAS to open this email. “Hey Sis,” it reads, “maybe you could make this rosemary jelly for Mom’s birthday, if you hurry. Let me know what you think.” Deb’s sister included a link. Deb, of course, clicks the link.
The recipe looks easy enough. Her mom’s birthday is in 3 days. If she made the jelly today, shipped it overnight tomorrow…..Yes! She has to go buy the pouch of liquid fruit pectin, but she has everything else. Deb’s garden is overflowing with rosemary. “A gift straight from my garden,” she thinks, “Mom will love this.”
Deb clicks the link about canning from the page Becca has sent her.
“Hello new 23-quart aluminum pressure canner, cute little jars of rosemary jelly, and a messy kitchen. I can’t focus with the kitchen like this,” Deb thinks… “…Good-bye dissertation, good-bye starting the week out right.”
Don’t have a Deb Day. Do this instead…
