I had a good birthday, although it was a work day for me. I wore a new shirt L gave me, a black long-sleeved, button-down number with a grey check pattern. I like it!

I'm now on vacation for 11 days. I haven't made any firm plans yet, but I do want to do some travelling in Alberta and/or B.C. by car.
