I think I'm settling in comfortably. I've got my sidebars loaded, and have figured out how to split posts (so long ones can have "Read More" at a reasonable breaking point).
I've had this idea for an entry for a few days, and I think this is as close as I'm going to get. Me, in my grandmother's apron (which I never wear), with no make-up is a pretty honest portrayal (except for the apron). Not the kind I usually like to share publicly, though. (At least I didn't cry this time.)*
But see: I am wearing an apron. You'll have to picture me holding a tray of cold drinks and welcoming you. The guy behind me is Fred. He's always hanging around somewhere. (He's harmless.) In the next few days, we're going to come up with a reverse housewarming gift and have a contest.

*Truth is, I don't photograph so well. This one is pretty accurate; other ones are not and, well, make me cry. (My glasses are in the apron pocket because they are one of the main culprits -- they turn dark with light and really don't photograph well.)
