Photo A Day Challenge - January

I've been playing along with the Photo a Day Challenge set by
since August.

It's so much fun I'm at it again for the 6th time.
I add to this post daily
and also put the photos on

31. YOURSELF - I have a big fat cold sore today and I hate taking I'm using my favourite photo of myself from my wedding day, just over 10 years ago.

30. DOWN - Thankfully all of this flood water went down just in time for first day of school today!

29. GROW - All this rain has caused mushrooms to grow in our pots!

28. THROUGH - No one is getting through our town today...FLOODED!!

27. SUN - We are right in the middle of ex-tropical cyclone Oswald at the moment, I haven't seen the sun for 3 days! So here's an old favourite that I took some time ago on a hazy afternoon.

26. TOGETHER - Last night we went to see Keith Urban who was BRILLIANT!! Loved seeing him on stage together with the Madden Brothers.

25. LANDSCAPE - It's very wet and grey here today (which I love!) so I'm using my favourite landscape shot from the stunning Maleny Botanic Gardens which we visited for a picnic and stroll last month.

24. STRIPES - I haven't seen many of these around. I think it's a native bee.

23. ELECTRIC - The power pole in the corner of our front yard. It's an eyesore and I usually try NOT to get it in my photos.

22. CORNER - The corner of the outdoor table that my husband built.

21. WHAT YOU DO - I do lots of things! But one of the things I love to do is take photos of flowers.

20. SOMETHING YOU SAW - On Friday we saw Les Mis at the movies. It's the first grown-ups movie I've been to in 9 years!! And BOY was it worth the wait. Love loved LOVED it!

19. DELICIOUS - There's nothing better than a big hotel breakie....DEEEEEE-licious!

18. SHADOW - The shadow of a cactus on the pool wall of our hotel.

17. READY - They're packed and ready to go to Grandma's for 2 nights. Not sure I'm ready though. It's the first time they'll be away for that long. *sniff*

16. TWO THINGS - My favourite earrings.

15. AN ORDINARY MOMENT - Rain may seem ordinary to many of you, but when it hasn't rained for months, and we've just had a 6 day heatwave...rain is an extraordinary thing!

14. SOMETHING YELLOW - Yellow mulberry leaves in our garden.

13. CIRCLE - My favourite circle!

12. SURPRISE - I took my Miss 5 to the duck pond to ride her scooter yesterday and I always take my camera. I was very pleasantly surprised to find this! Nine gorgeous little ducklings!!

11. WATER - Filling a horse trough at a picnic ground.

10. ONE O'CLOCK - Lunch! Perfect for a hot day (it's about 36° at the moment)...cold left over mini impossible quiches and a watermelon Greek salad!! YUMMO

9. PAPER - Making paper snowflakes.

8. SOMETHING BEGINNING WITH 'T' - Trees...our trees on our block! This is why I want to call the block "Gum Grove".

7. STREET - A street in my town. I love the historic buildings.

6. MINE - My husband, my son, my daughter. My world...

5. MOVEMENT - The wind blowing the grass.

4. THE VIEW FROM HERE - When we move, I'm going to miss this view from our back yard.

3. HEART - I still haven't taken the Christmas Tree down yet! I'm keeping it up until my parents visit next week.

2. SOMETHING NEW - My new tunic top from ModCloth. I love it!!
