Summer Has Arrived

28 Feb

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis


It’s February 28 and summer has arrived in Florida. Way…Too…Early. Temperatures in the 80s have triggered the annual pollen. My eyes are itchy but I can’t rub them. That is a huge No-NO for someone with cornea transplants. I miss my mountains.



Okay, my public whining is over. Notice I said public. I am sure I will continue to inwardly whine until I give myself an attitude adjustment and decide to choose thankfulness and joy.

It has been a busy week and aside from grumbling, I haven’t had any blog inspiration. So, I will leave you with this message from hot Florida:








I'm a winnerAfter my retirement, I decided to re-learn the canning and preserving skills I learned from my mother but hadn’t practiced for twenty years. I titled the blog Old Things R New to chronicle my experience.  Since then I have been blessed to have six other bloggers join me, DiVoran Lites, Bill Lites,  Judy Wills, Louise Gibson, Janet Perez Eckles and Melody Hendrix

In addition to blogging, I work as the publicist/marketer/ amateur editor and general  “mom Friday” for my author daughter, Rebekah Lyn. I also manage her website, Rebekah Lyn Books  where we frequently host the best in up and coming authors.

My 2019 goal is to use my love of photographs and words to be an encourager on social media. You can visit Real Life Books and Media You Tube Channel if you would like to view some of the mini-videos I have created for our church, Gateway Community in Titusville, Fl.

    Meanwhile over here in Missouri I am begging for warmer weather!! I have had enough of this winter 😂but I already know when it starts being 99 degrees and super humid, I’ll regret saying this! Enjoy before it gets too hot! 🙂

      Longer fall and spring with shorter summer and winter would be great! Thanks for stopping by.

    Florida’s winter is way too short! We get, what? 2 weeks of it, and that’s only if you group all the cool days together. By the end of next week we might go down to 65*F (if it gets this far south). We will turn the AC off again and breath fresh air for a day or so.
    I want to go NORTH next winter!!
