Nothing for day 37, it has been stinking hot. my daughter and I went for a drive in my son's Commodore to Springfield Lakes to return some library books to USQ. It was so hot we have stayed indoors most of the weekend.

More photos shared on Twitpic of the torrential rain and catastrophic results for Brisbane:
We went shopping today, closest we got to getting wet thank goodness.
|Bargain! 2 x hot drinks + 2 x scones.|
|My hero collecting me and the shopping|
He is insisting on driving back to Sydney so fingers crossed he doesn't hit any road blocks with all of this rain.

The machinery didn't beat me though, with some help from @kf70 I managed to work around them, et voila I now have a pile of beautifully crafted name strips with the names of each of my students ready for day 1!
Taken using PhotoBooth 'Light tunnel' effect.

Uploading a screen shot of my new folder icons to see how the images transfer to flickr. Assuming I have to add tags and titles over there.
Nicely transferred, but it is not the 5th of January now, it is the 6th! Will have to find the time settings for this blog.

I have one more assignment to submit in order to complete the MEd (Technology) that I have been working towards since semester 2, 2007. I have been looking into opportunities that this qualification might open for me. Today I had a chat with a colleague who suggested I could take the next academic step - Education Doctorate. I will submit an expression of interest and share what unfolds. This is the Arts and Education building at Griffith University on the Gold Coast where I could be enrolled.

The last piece of Christmas cake for the year! Popped around to have a cup of tea with Mum and Dad after a trip out to Coles for supplies. Mum takes so much care with the presentation, paper napkins, everyone had a Royal Worcester mug and a white plate on the Christmas table cloth. Happy New Year viewer!

The grass and weeds have taken over our back yard. Ian had an accident at work that stopped him from getting out into the garden to work and there has been so much rain that some of the stalks are waist high! Today my men folk worked together to replace the blades and then attacked the forest that has sprouted during the weeks over Christmas.
The first photo is the Christmas pudding being lit before eating with Mum and Dad to complete the first meal of the year that we shared with them. The second is of my kids commenting unenthusiastically about me taking photos again.

Already into the new year and I am late beginning this photo collage. I had a look at the previous one, Mrs_Banjer's EdTech 365/2010, and believe that I did a bit better than the year before that. I actually remembered to return and upload photos every so often.
The lessons I have learned about this task:
1. Do not link to photos in flickr, if you let your pro account lapse the images are not displayed which is a pain. When I paid the subscription some of the images remained unavailable.
2. Remember to resize images or adjust the camera settings so it doesn't eat into internet quota.
3. Be realistic, I am usually pretty consistent through the holidays but during term time work and study take over. Even though it is a pretty good distraction and useful for procrastination the most attention is paid during the holiday periods.
That said, I am going to upload a couple of photos I have taken with my birthday present below, a new camera bought in the sales at Robina with my ebuddy @jeni_wren.
My husband and I went for a drive yesterday to get out of the house. I wanted to try the panorama feature of my camera out and the results are pretty good I think! Love the display quality when I click on the image. These are taken at West End and then at South Bank, Brisbane.
