“It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents” – everyone has heard this famous phrase from the 18th century novel “Paul Clifford”.   I associate it more with Snoopy who pecks out that sentence while sitting at the typewriter atop his red doghouse.  Well, now it’s been a dark and stormy night, a dark and stormy day etc., etc. three times over.  Though I’ve peered out the window countless times willing the bad weather to go away, walking is just not going to happen again today.  I should go downstairs and ride my exercise bike and at least get the ol’ ticker going, but snuggling down under the covers and hitting the snooze alarm feels soooooooooooooo good.  I am a newshound and have my radio headphones right beside my bed.  The aggravating beeping of the alarm once again annoys me so instead I tap it off and grab the radio headphones to hear  what happened in the world since I went to bed.  I snuggle down deeper as another wave of this latest storm moves though; the thunder rumbles and the pelting rain drums on top of the patio roof  behind my head.  Another long rumble of thunder drowns out the news story and I think of my mom’s expression that “God is moving his furniture again” …  it sure sounds like it.  The meteorologists are as weary of giving the same forecast as we are of hearing it. 

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.
