Singed Again

7 Mar

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis



MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE. No part of my hand was singed or nicked in the making of these muffins. After my experience on Tuesday with the curling iron, I started off Wednesday by singeing a finger just below the knuckle, on a Belgian waffle maker. This hurt less than the curling iron, but left a blister. Maybe avoiding small electrical appliances would be a safe choice in the future. But then again, maybe not. A couple of years ago I was testing something in the oven and my pointer finger drifted up and touched the oven element. Youza! That burned. I am left handed and my husband is doesn’t like me to use sharp knives because from his right handed point of view, I look like I am going to stab myself.  I very seldom do so but after my electrical injuries, I am going to stay far away from an electric knife!

Wednesday was a perfect Florida Winter day. Loads of sunshine, a brisk breeze and a high around sixty degrees. It has been a warm winter and I didn’t want to waste this glorious day inside.   After my finger singeing we decided to drive up to Daytona to check out Academy Sports, a chain new to our area, although they do have them in Orlando. I would have preferred to go to one of the river parks, stand of the banks with outspread arms like in Titanic and savor the wind. But it would have been chilly



After strolling through several of the stores at the mall, we had a late lunch at one of our favorite places before driving home.




It was a good day.


PS The banana nut muffins are low carb, Keto and the recipe is in the  Keto Gatherings cookbook by Kristie Sullivan. My husband had one after they came out of the oven and gave them two thumbs up.

i almost forgot. Here is the video from last Sunday. 





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.
