Playing Catch Up

My planner for the week and some fall/Thanksgiving cards
that I made that I need to get in the mail this week.

This week has been a really strange week for me.  I started to not feel well last week then on Monday morning the pain was so bad I could not get out of bed.  Off to the doctor we go and I am sent for a CAT Scan.  What?  I was diagnosed with kidney stones and a large cyst on my right ovary.  This bought me a week off work and the couch.  I was told to rest and take my pain meds.  So I did absolutely nothing all week.  I binge watched some shows on Netflix and caught up on the current season of some shows on Hulu.  I only slightly feel guilty for not doing anything!  (No genealogy or crafting fun all week but I will share some things I made last week).  I can go back to work on Monday and hopefully the kidney stones have resolved themselves.  The cyst will take some follow up but all should be well.


On another note...sad and happy at the same time!

Yesterday was Hunter's 18th birthday!  What???  Where has the time gone??  We will celebrate with a family party tonight.  (I'm looking forward to some cake!)

Hunter.  From newborn to senior!

I think I wore myself out last week making cookies.  10 hours spent baking and decorating to welcome a new family member coming soon!  It was well worth it!

Sugar cookies for a fall/fox themed baby shower.
Here's to next week being uneventful and allowing me to get back to normal!

How was your week??

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

Today I did a Google+ hangout on air about Evernote for Genealogy.   Once I watched the video I saw that I was not a very good cameraman!

Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have.





How I use Evernote for my genealogy.

I use Evernote to store everything including my genealogy research.
You want to use Evernote in a way that makes sense to you.  Tags, notebooks, no tags or no notebooks; do whatever works the best for you.
Notebooks (the blue box)
Notebooks are sorted alphabetically so if there are notebooks you want at the top of your list you can use ! or @ or ~ in front of your notebook title.  In my image, for example, I have my INBOX notebook with an ! in front to keep this notebook at the top of the list.  I use a ~ to keep my GENEALOGY notebook stacks together.  I have an ARCHIVE notebook and in front of that I put an x to keep it at the bottom of …
