How do you feel when everyone goes on vacation? If you are like me, there is a tiny tinge of jealousy. Especially when the autoresponder says they won’t be back for a week.
But I received a vacation message recently that made me smile. And it reaffirmed that we ought to be working to live, and not living to work.
For readers whose summer vacation involves a trip to Europe, good on you. For those who can simply make it to the nearest outdoor jazz festival, well, find joy in that!
And for those who are doing neither, here is a bit of humor that I found embedded in an autoresponder. Very practical for the staycation!
I’m on vacation, returning online July 23.

If you’d rather wait until I get back, feel free to email me after
7/23. Until then, enjoy this adult beverage recipe for Chocolate
Pudding Shots. To be on the safe side, I wouldn’t consume more than 2,
1 (3 1/2 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vodka
1/2 cup irish cream
8 ounces extra Cool Whip
Mix pudding and milk until well blended.
Add vodka and Irish cream, mix well.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Divide into individual servings.
Keep in freezer.
