Earlier today I was out and about with a bout of repeated sneezing that actually took my breath away.  I decided to walk to the Lincoln Park Post Office to mail some cards – mind you, I could have gone to the end of the street to post mail, but I like a destination and want to boost my daily miles to at least 2 ½- 3 so the longer trips don’t give me shin splints and wear me out so much.  All that rainfall we had a few weeks ago has soaked into the ground and now we need rain and will get it the next two afternoons and Friday morning.  Hopefully that will tamp down some of this pollen that is flying around and making me miserable plus I have a fogged-up head (more than usual) (grin).  I wonder why I stay on the regimen of allergy shots for over a decade, plus on Alavert for feeling like I did before I started for goodness sake??  On my travels along Fort Street today I noticed that the abandoned bike (or I should say remaining part of a bike) is now gone.  The sleuthing side of me says its owner never returned and the scrappers came and broke the chain and got their lunch money with the dilapidated bicycle.  If the owner came back hoping to ride home, he was in for a rude awakening.  Notwithstanding the sneezing, I got in a nice walk – 2.8 miles by the time I came home; a solid hour of walking.  I indulged in chocolate milk which is my reward every time I walk and by the time I returned my early a.m. breakfast was in my toes so now I have to eat again. 

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.
