The Big Warm up

3 Feb

On the Porch

Last week here in Florida we were preparing for the “big freeze.” The freeze was freezing! We covered our fragile plants and all but one survived with no damage. We neglected to cover a pot of purple Coleus and it is not looking well. My daughter thinks the roots may be ok and that trimming it back may salvage it. On a positive note, the Crotons did just fine.

As i write this on Wednesday night, the air conditioner is running. Thursday and Friday we will have temperatures in the 80s again. Hopefully our northern visitors (Anyone visiting from north of the Florida state line) will be quick to take advantage of the warmth because in true Florida fashion, the temperature will plunge again, though not as far as last week.

Lots of talk and memes for Ground Hog day. Local weather stations have posted some fun memes. I like this one from our Orlando WFTV station.

Not to be outdone, a Jacksonville news station went for the beach look.

I have seen a lot of people posting about snow in Michigan. I went online and found this one. I would never willingly play the game. This Florida raised woman is a total chicken when it comes to snow and ice.

A novel I read this week stated that when well-bred English people don’t know what to say, they talk about the weather. In my not so well-bred American case, when this blogger doesn’t know what to write about, she talks about the weather.

I'm a winner

After 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  

My 2021 goal is continue to use my love of photographs and words to be an encourager on social media.
