It's a really lame jump-in-front-of-the-timed-camera selfie. But the Flute Player *still* has stuff from her move-back-home frenzy piled in my usual jump-in-front-of-the-camera spot, where I can set the camera on a shelf at approximately chest height.
This photo was taken with the camera sitting on the porch railing, at about waist height. So the angle looks a little weird. But I'm wearing something that makes me happy...the guipure lace tank I purchased in Dallas last fall for a lower price than I could ever have bought the lace yardage. It's over a navy bamboo/lycra jersey Jalie 965 tank top with midnight navy tropical wool Sewing Workshop Plaza pants. And my old CWC denim jacket, with the lapels turned up in what is supposed to be trendy hipness and just looks kinda strange...I don't think they ended up curled Just Right. Messing with the camera and then moving quickly to get into place rarely ends with everything Just Right. So I'll settle for ok.
Haircut appointment next week to put the shape back in it. Amazing how it goes from cute and curly to just bushy almost overnight...
Completely off-topic: for years, I 've used Sitemeter to kinda track visits. It doesn't give really good data, but I get an idea of whether or not I'm getting any traffic (I'm not going to say 'much'...'any' is good enough) and whether folks just click in and click out or if they actually read a page or two while they're here. But lately it has been more and more useless. For one thing, I think people are wising up and using software to hide their visits so they don't get tracked. But Sitemeter itself has just been weird. It's been down more than it's been up ('The data base for your site is not available now. Try again in a few minutes') and the numbers are whacko (176 page views in 3 seconds? Really?). So I'm about to ditch it, I think. Can anyone recommend a similar service that seems to work that I can switch to? Although, to be honest, I may be better off not knowing that no one visited for three days (that would be the other blog; this one usually as at least a dozen or so visits in a day. I think. )
