MY VERY SECOND SELFIE




(My first selfie was the one with me holding a sleeping Stewey.)

Ugh...I absolutely positively hate my photograph.  But in this case, I wanted to grab a shot of the haircut so I could remember what it looks like.  The funny thing is that I picked up the iPad and must have hit the button as I was looking at Stewey's little box thinking "Can you believe I'm doing this, Little?", so I suppose he's kind if in this one too.

  1. Has anyone told you today that you are beautiful? If not, may I be the first?

    Coni, your blog was the very first I ever read. I've laughed and cried with you. Be patient with yourself. Let the doctors take care of you. And know, your hairdresser rocks!

    Go sit down, have a damn good cup of coffee and get stitching girl...Betty's gonna be *issed if you don't have some stitchy news tomorrow!

  4. your hair is amazing! I'm going on Monday to get mah hair did because the grays are taking over. I spend about 100 bucks to get my hair done wonderfully, only for it to spend 99% of the time in a ponytail. I don't go anywhere and my work requires it to be up! oh well, for that 1% it looks nice!

  8. Great great haircut! Make up and jewelry oh MY! I think you look awesome! But that's from a 67 year old portly spinster.

  12. Don't know why you would be afraid of the dreaded selfie, I think you are quite lovely! I love your haircut, and I am jealous of your thick gorgeous hair. Mine is abundant but very fine and very straight. If I want any look at all, I have to spray on a "helmet" fit for battle! I think I could seriously do some damage in the event I was driven to head butt someone!

  16. You look like a portrait by one of the Italian greats...
    I envy those gorgeous eyebrows....Stick like glue to your
    hairdresser... she reads you and your hair well.. Don't ever want to hear you call yourself a portly spinster again...more like a selective seductress... That glance pointed at our Stewey says it all.... enchanting..

  20. I've never commented before but your Stewey stories and of course recent events have made me laugh with you, cry with you and like you, and I have to say, that is a beautiful photo of you. You're more beautiful and special than you know. It's an honour and a pleasure to read your blog and you give me strength in my own ability to carry on. Keep smiling.

  24. Oh Coni ! You are so not a portly spinster. Why have you been hiding yourself from us, those who love you ? It's so great to have a face to the voice. You are so beautiful and that hair !!!! It certainly is your crowning glory. Hang onto that hairdresser I say !! Don't ever think you are not beautiful. And as the others have said Beautiful on the inside and the outside.

  31. Oh Coni, it's great to see you! For starters, I love the hair...soft and frames your face and now when I read your blog, I'll actually have a face in mind. This has cheered me immensely. You've got such a fan club, you know. Good luck with the upcoming surgery and here's to feeling so much better once dialysis starts, and fantastic when a new kidney comes your way.

    Love from Godalming, UK

  39. Your hair looks lovely. I always feel better when I've had my hair done (even if it does frizz within an hour or two), so I hope this is helping you feel a bit better.

  40. Why am I reminded of the strong Greek women in the "Big Fat Greek Wedding" movies? My gosh, Coni, your face is as beautiful as your voice. Love that you're finally sharing more of yourself with us :)

  43. Well, that was a surprise. I was expecting a frumpy middle aged woman in old pajamas and fluffy slippers. But, no. You are a lovely woman and the haircut is absolutely fabulous!

  45. Beautiful! And the hair is great too! Isn't it funny how we have an image in our mind of someone we have never seen and they look nothing like it lol

  50. Your hair looks amazing, but I was thinking the expression in your eyes tells the real story. Then I read that you were looking at Stewey's box.

  56. Oh my goodness Coni, you are a classic beauty!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is SO not how I pictured a "portly spinster." You are a striking young woman with beautiful hair and a classic face. Think Sophia Loren. Don't EVER call yourself portly again

    ReplyDelete
  58. A few days late to the photo party - but never too late to say thank you for sharing! It's a hard thing to do when none of us like photos of ourselves ... and one ought not to be judged by its cover. However, as a long time fan I had a fuddy duddy image of what I was sure was YOU fixed in my mind. Could not have been more wrong! Portly spinsters everywhere should thank you for making it look so good!!! Time for a new identity "Stunning Stitcher"!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I also had conjured up an image in my head of a "portly spinster", and I have to say that it did not remotely resemble the photograph you shared. What a beautiful lady you are!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am so jealous of your thick hair and great bone structure! Thank you for sharing your " selfie". I too hate to have my picture taken. I actually sneak into my husbands phone and delete all the pictures he takes of me. Maybe we all need to be less hard on ourselves! I live your blog and wish I lived next door to you!

  61. YOU are beautiful! And your hair rocks!
