Not a Fan

14 Mar

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis


Well, I’ve given it 4 days and have come to the definitive conclusion, I DON’T like Daylight Savings Time.  In fact, as far as I am concerned, the science is settled. My friend DiVoran emailed me this cartoon. I loved it.


I need dusk and nightfall to alert me that the day is ending. Encroaching shadows nudge me to begin preparing supper and full nightfall signals the end of my day. Fans of DST claim that it gives them more daylight to mow the grass, do other chores or have fun outdoors. That’s great, but once night arrives, you are beat and bedtime looms without the benefit of chill out time.

Since the country does not revolve around me, I guess I will concede to DST with as much grace as I can muster, and enjoy the bright side. Morning daylight won’t disturb my last chance of sweet dreams before the alarm starts my day.



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.
