Conjoined Twins

Image
November 28, 2020. These may be more common that I expect, but it's the first pair of conjoined mushrooms I've seen (and I used to work as a mushroom picker). Today was a work day, despite it being Saturday, first to give a talk online, then to check every slide presentation on Slideshare to make sure I had it before deleting my account. This evening played Among Us for the first time with a group of students in Barcelona, and had quite the enjoyable time (I'll have to do that again). https://flic.kr/p/2kbssTu

Green and Brown

Image
November 27, 2020. I'm not exactly sure what this plant is but I like the contrast of the green and brown colouring on the snow. I've been preparing presentations recently; this afternoon I recorded one that will be presented next week. https://flic.kr/p/2kbsq58

Back of the Kiosk

Image
November 26, 2020. While waiting at the Costco I took a walk around the parking lot to stretch my legs. I found this, a very well tended back of the kiosk at the Costco gas station. https://flic.kr/p/2kbw8rU

Snow

Image
November 25, 2020. This is what greeted me out the front window this morning. It continued for several hours. No matter - I spent the day indoors attending several meetings, worked my way though a bit of a dispute, and outlined my slides for a presentation I'm recording Friday (followed by another one Saturday). https://flic.kr/p/2kaDWmZ

Breakfast

Image
November 24, 2020. This is what I had for breakfast today and have every day - oatmeal plus fruit and (not pictured) maple syrup. Spoon is on the left had side for lighting, not because I'm left handed (I'm not). I spent the better part of the day today writing a post on a UNESCO 'Futures of Education' document. https://flic.kr/p/2kab4Jq

Cat Prints

Image
November 23, 2020. We woke up to snow on the ground - and in our case, a single set of cat prints on the deck underneath the bird feeder (now full of seeds again now that the grackles have departed). I did some work on data literacy, continued to transform presentations, and did some background reading on quantum algorithms. https://flic.kr/p/2kaayB6
