Weekly Reads, Vol. 26

Today is a busy one for me.  I'm running a 5K this morning, slinging suds at the brewery this afternoon, and taking in my 24th Tim Stop show tonight.  So, clearly it's a packed day, but it's a lot of my favorite things, so I really don't mind.

Maybe you have more downtime today.  If so, I encourage you to check out these posts from the past week.

Angie at My So-Called Chaos is starting a new series on basic coding for bloggers. I've gotten better over the years, but I still feel like a complete dummy when it comes to HTML.  I'm hoping I can learn a few things from Angie's series. Earlier in the week, she also nailed why some bridges need to be burned. YES.  It's not always easy, but some people need to leave our lives on all levels.

I love Instagram, and sometimes I wish I had the photos in another form. The Surznick Common Room offers a few ideas for bringing those Insta-favorites out of your phone and into your home. I especially like the book idea. I might look into that next year.

I am completely guilty of always being busy (read the opening paragraph of this post). Nicole at A Life Less Bullshit talked about how preoccupation with always being busy or needing to be busy isn't such a good thing.  Notes taken.  I'm going to start looking for times when I can just sit and be.

Sarah at Venus Trapped in Mars automatically got included in this round-up because she wrote about Texas Rangers apparel and attending Opening Day at Rangers Ballpark.  I basically want everything pictured on her post, and I hope she writes about experiencing her first Opening Day. I've been to two, and it's such a fun time.

Happy Saturday everyone!
