Week of June 9–15


I loved the clouds on Wednesday. It gave the sky a marbelized effect. The clouds also kept it a bit cooler as I walked.

The weather at the beginning of the week was great and I enjoyed several morning walks with partly sunny clouds and cool breezes. But then the heat and humidity hit on Friday and I need to come up with a new plan for my walks as this heat wave is predicted to last for quite a while.

  • Monday morning – 4.04 miles in 1 hour 13 minutes
  • Tuesday morning – 4.13 miles in 1 hour and 15 minutes (my longest walk recorded in Strava)
  • Wednesday morning – 3.81 miles in 1 hour and 10 minutes
  • Thursday morning – 3.24 miles in 59 minutes

Anchor positioning and popovers

I took some time on Friday to read through and look at the demos for 3 of Michelle Barker’s recent articles on anchor positioning and popovers. I have seen a lot of people talk about anchor positioning but Michelle’s article was the first one I had read and seen it in action. I had not been that excited about this tool until I saw Michelle’s demo of a complex site menu. I am looking forward to playing around with this new tool and thinking of ways to use it in the future.

The Joy of React

I picked the course back up this week after a couple of weeks off. I finished the first module on Friday. I am slowly working through it so that I have time to absorb what I am learning. I am encouraged that I am on the right track with solutions to Josh’s exercises even when I don’t know how to write the code to do what I understand conceptually to do.

Articles I read

What I watched

Zsolt’s Story (Campus Crusade for Christ Hungary) – I enjoyed watching this video because it features my friend Laci, who I got to see a couple of months ago while I was in Budapest.
