Friday Fill-ins (and giveaways)

1. Right now, I'm feeling a little sleepy.
2. Somewhere in northern Japan where the autumn colours are in their full glory, with my camera, is where I want to be.
3. How does one find the time to do everything one wants to do?
4. Life's daily responsibilities and the boys keep me on track.
5. Please don't take away my books, my computer or my camera, there's no telling what I might do!
6. A chill in the air after the heat and humidity of summer fills me with joy.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to reading more of my book, tomorrow my plans include trying to get some stuff done that I'm really behind on and Sunday, I want to relax and read!
