"Carpe Diem"

Obviously, they're choosing to snooze the day away not "seize the day(Carpe Diem)."
The picture is of my two cats when they were  much smaller.

The following quote is from a Woman's desk top calendar I had last year.  I tore off  the page with this quote and put it on my fridge where it remains.
I thought it quite appropriate yesterday when I arose at 3:30 after 2 1/2 hours sleep to begin grading the junior general English poetry projects.  Grades were due in Progress Report at 9 and I was due at school at 8.  Yes, I'm a procrastinator, but also I've learned what my body does best in terms of fibromyalgia and a set-up like this actually works well for me.

The quote:
"I have a 'Carpe Diem' mug and, truthfully, at six in the morning the words do not make me want to seize the day. 
They make me want to slap a dead poet."
----Joanne Sherman

Today I go in to clean up room and organize so the cleaning crews can gut it this summer.  I have filing to do and boxes to fill--some will come home with me and some will wait patiently on the shelves until September.
 Tomorrow I will be back participating in blog world, from which I've been absent.
Hope you all have a great day!
