It's nearly 2 here. I'm having a calm day, but it is also shadowy and sad. It's cold here, fall is approaching, and the house is very quiet. I lit a candle this morning for Charlotte and for vera kate's Noah. It's his birthday and I want him to know his mama, and her friends, love him very much. Oh, and now, just had news my friend Dana had a miscarriage. It's been three months since she lost her sweet Jacob, and now this. The candle burns for one more today. Poor mama, please visit and let her know she is not alone.
An hour ago I was sitting on the couch, too sad to move, staring at my laptop, eating peanut butter toast, and drinking hot chocolate, hoping something would happen - maybe a genie would pop out and start cleaning the house I cannot seem to clean - when I noticed something. Blogger now has stats. I've always wondered about how many visitors I have, who visits, where they are coming from, etc., but never bothered to download a program that would tell me. Now I know. And I'm feeling very shy. There's a lot more of you than I realized. I always thought number of followers was a fairly good indication of how many read. I thought number of comments gave me a good idea of who is out there. Oh no, there are many more of you than I thought, if page-views are any indication. Apparently that innocent little stats button is like Pandora's Box: better left alone.
