Testing and A Turtle
Well, I am trying out a new program that my sister has introduced me to called Evernote. It is already my new favorite. It’s a note program that you can install as an app on your phone, iPad, Blackberry, etc. and also as a real program on your PC. So far, it is a dream come true. Oh, and it’s free.
Can it get any better?
Why yes, it can. Because this is not just your ordinary note program. This program also allows you to include pictures, voice memos, and you can even share your notebooks so other people can have access to them.
Did I mention it’s free?
I’m sure there is much more for me to learn about this program but for today, I’m going to see how it works as a place for me to write my blog posts. Because frankly, the WordPress app (which is also free FYI), stinks. Bad. And they advertise this program as being a good place to blog.
So this is my test blog. How’s it working for ya?
And if this post doesn’t have you on the edge of your seat yet, just wait! There’s more!
Today as we were leaving the house, we saw a TURTLE crawling along the alley. I’ve never seen a turtle in the city as far as I can remember. So I had to stop and snap a picture:
[Edited to add: I actually wrote this post in the Evernote program then emailed it to WordPress – and it showed up here as a post!!! So this may be my new favorite way to post to my blog. Except that I can’t change the size of the picture, which might get really annoying, especially when all you’re looking at is a turtle.]
It’s going to rain if it’s going North….
Hmmm…it was pointing East but it has been raining a lot. Maybe it was going North but in a roundabout way.
Britany, your husband held a turtle captive on our patio
when he was around 5. He built a fence with bricks which the turtle
would knock down. One day the turtle just disappeared (escaped)
for his own good. We had fun finding stuff the turle would eat. Then
Brad wanted a turtle house which was a tray with rocks. The turtle you
bought for those trays to be pets were about 2 inches long. He played
and played with that Turtle. We lived on Northcrest then.
The funny thing is that the next day, I looked out the window and saw a smaller turtle in the street in front of our house (heading North, Mom). It was before school and so P & S were downstairs and saw me dash out the door and of course, followed. I set the turtle in the flowerbed while they ran in to get Matthew, then I went back inside thinking “It’s a turtle. How far can it go?”. The answer was as far away as it could get because we never saw another sign of it again! The boys were so disappointed but I was glad they didn’t have time to adopt it into our family.
