In other birthday-related goodness, I got many well-wishing emails from people I haven't seen enough of lately (and a handmade card from my sister).  And eldest brother sent me a package of goodies from his recent trip to Hawaii.  Yes, he went to Hawaii and I got a t-shirt, but it wasn't lousy; it's a "mirrors of the Mauna Kea observatory" shirt.  And he got me some adorable maneki-neko origami paper.

And of course I got six or seven inches of new snow to shovel.  I am well ready to stop shoveling and start planting the garden.  But it was a good workout; I just put on the headphones and got into a rhythm.  Drinking many fluids now to try and stave off muscle soreness...so far, so good.  Need to build up my tree-carrying muscles for helping Z at her Baraboo home.

Made walnut-pistachio-cranberry bread pudding.  Good après-shoveling food.

Friends are coming over this weekend, for gaming and chatting.  I plan to make a belated angel food cake for my friend's birthday, and "pasta bar" for dinner (homemade tomato-garlic sauce and homemade pesto in the freezer, so I just need to add meats and cheeses; it's not a heavy veg-eating crowd).

It's The Big Weekend for the project at work.  Our particular team probably won't be able to do or fix much until next week.  But I am still running queries, looking for stuff that's still wrong...and finding at least one new wrong thing each day, and dutifully forwarding my findings to the appropriate authorities.
Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
