For giggles, I wanted to see if Evernote 5 would run on my computer, so I uninstalled everything from Evernote 7 and took a trip back down memory lane. Some thoughts: I can't believe how much I missed the brown notebook icons! Atlas still does not work. I think it's been ripped out on the back end. Market does not work. I wants to be online for some reason. Nor does "Premium". Reminders really pop with their paper background. Lots of neon blue, even though my Mac is set to the Graphite theme. I don't know how long I'll keep it, but kudos to Evernote for making so much work, even with an ancient version of their client.
Tonight we were decorating our Christmas tree. One of my favorite parts of this is the, "Oh, I remember when..." for the ornaments. This is only the second Christmas since my mom died and this was her favorite holiday. Because of this, my kids (15, 11 and 11) are acutely aware of how special these things are. My mom had so many things that were so important for her but she never shared the stories with my brother and me. Now that she's gone, those stories are gone too. This is especially hard for items that I might have made when I was younger. I have those ornaments, but I don't know when they were made or any kind of detail. So as we were putting things away, it dawned on me how easy it would be to use Evernote to track those stories, especially on the homemade ornaments from my kids (even just a date and creator). During Christmas and as we put Christmas ornaments away, I think I will start taking pictures and making notes of ornaments. Especially which ornament belongs to which child. This is something I already do with my knitting (picture of the object, date I knit it, who it was for). Okay, maybe this isn't totally crafty, but what important non-business, non-paperwork, family things do you like to keep (or have plans to keep) in Evernote?
