Oh my goodness it is so nice outside!  Its weird, because a lot of times I go most of the day without noticing the weather. My new(ish) desk set-up faces away from the windows, which in the winter are closed.  So I'm lucky I didn't miss this surprise lovely day.  I just ran around opening all the windows.  I guess its troubling that this day belongs in May while its the beginning of January.  But I'm sure we'll all be freezing our toes off tomorrow.  I'm going to appreciate being able to air out the apartment...perhaps I'll even change into a skirt.  gasp.  I'm trying out some new coloring/ compositing techniques today.  Its going well so far... Oh! and I finally updated the shop. Well, a little anyway.  I added in a light plate, and the cutest thank you card ever:

birdie thanks
