A Week Off From Coding Ft. Embroidery and Colored Pencils

Hi friends! It's good to be back on another blog post after taking the last week completely off from coding and pretty much from the computer itself. Felt great, especially once I realized I hadn't taken some true quality rest time in a while.

I'm happy to report that I spent a lot of last week (aside from being quasi-glued to the news) learning to embroider (which I absolutely love!!) and actually coloring in a coloring book.

It's like that episode of The Big Bang Theory when Sheldon takes on a job at The Cheesecake Factory in order to take on a different sort of repetitive job/task to give his mind room to work on more complex problems in the background.

(And yes, I also tuned in to The Big Bang Theory during my week off!)

So after stictching some flowers and plant scenery and coloring in complex patterns, I'm happy to report that I'm back and I'm ready to jump back into React projects and practice!


P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>
