Friday Night Date

Mozeley and Shinxley happy to have me home. 🥰

There is nothing better than coming home on a rainy Friday after work than to see these two trying to share my close personal space. Mozeley keeps tapping me for pets and kisses. Shinxley lays behind me giving me a reminder head-butt to pay attention to her. I love my cat kids. 🥰

Nature Watching Me…

I was minding my business enjoying my walk when I had the feeling I was being watched. I looked over, and this doe was relaxing eating plants under a tree. She was less than 10 feet away from me, and she didn’t even move as I took the picture. Our deer families have become bolder over the last few years. They aren’t afraid to walk nearby when we in our courtyard.

It was a beautiful scene that reminded me how much I love the warmer weather. However, as I walked to my porch, I kept thinking about one thing— This doe is keeping an eye on my hosta plants. 😡

Coding: Why isn’t my space-between ‘space-betweening’?

I spent two hours last night trying to figure out why my space-between wasn’t putting the space between my elements in my flexbox container. I checked my code and readjusted the sizes of my elements. Yet my two elements were spaced as if they were only on one side of the page. Yes, they had space between them. However, their alignment relative to the entire section was… off.

I finally decided to close my Mac and try again the next day. As I lay in bed, I gave it one more try and started to research an answer to my issue. I Googled, “Why is flexbox space-between not working?” and ended up on StackOverflow. When I found out the answer, I couldn’t believe it was so simple. It came down to… an empty div element. All that chaos was caused by empty div elements in the flexbox container. So, my space-between was working. However, in the first picture, the empty div elements were part of the spacing. Once I took them out (Picture 2), the elements had the spacing that I needed.

I understand this may be obvious to some. However, to a new developer, this issue could cause total coding chaos. Now I know when you use justify-content: space-between it will justify all of the elements with and without content. Happy Coding!

Caturday: Love from My Cat Babies

Happy Saturday!

I don’t know if it is the weather, but my cat kids have become more affectionate with me. Shinxley has started laying beside me on the couch more often. Mozeley almost climbed into my bra (and over Shinx) just to get his pets. It was the comfort I needed on this snowy day and for my sore leg. #Caturday
