* Fatigued Friday *

It's been a wonderful day, a wonderful week. About 2:30 this afternoon, though, it hit me. The tiredness that envelopes me. The tiredness that makes me feel as if I took one of those "non-drowsy" sinus pills. Non-Drowsy? For who? (or it is whom?) But, I hadn't taken any kind of medication, or any other substance that would make me so sleepy. It's just the way I am. And grateful that I'm at the point in my life, I can take naps pretty much whenever necessary. This wasn't a little "couch nap"....no, this was a go upstairs, crawl under the covers, and take a long nap, nap!

Although I slept well, I really don't feel like posting much tonight. I also still have some things to gather for an all-day Saturday Writers meeting tomorrow. From the agenda, it sounds like we'll have a fun-filled day!

So, I decided instead of my usual quote at the end of my post, the majority of this post will be various quotes. Some are inspirational, some humorous, and some are just my favorites!

"Summer days call for light reading." -- Anonymous

"If you believe you can make a living as a writer, you already have enough ego." -- David Brin

"The only thing that is ever foolish about a dream is not to act on it." -- Pat Croce

"Behind every successful woman...is a substantial amount of coffee." -- Stephanie Piro

"Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words." -- Goethe

"Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen." -- Goethe

And last, but not least....one of my all-time favorite quotes, by my all-time favorite writer:

"My second favorite household chore is ironing; my first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."--  Erma Bombeck
