About Me:

As I think "About Me", I look around myself to pull inspiration. My daughter climbs up the couch to my side. Clapping her knees repeatedly, she makes herself comfortable by digging her dimpled elbow deep into my hip.

My husband sprawls out to my other side and insists, "Tomorrow is his birthday, and that is why he must commence a Star Wars: Clone Wars marathon."

My oldest daughter is out of sight. I'd like to say she's doing something whimsical and blog worthy like hunting frogs or writing a letter to a pen pal...but I think she's just watching this show about pre-teen break dancers in the other room.

To my diagon (a word I just invented, meaning "diagonally from me"), I admire our 100 year old 24 panel window embedded in our cottage style home. Six panels tall, and four panels wide, I am thankful as I see a graph of the beauty of the Arizona desert as the sun sets.  It reminds me of my relationship with the One who made it.

I am now wondering if I really invented the word "diagon", or am just using it incorrectly. I wonder if I have used my punctuation appropriately. I decide I am too lazy cool to look it up and correct myself.

Now, you may think this is just some stuff that happened, but this is what I consider to be, "About Me".
