Well, say it isn’t snow!


It was a biting cold when I trudged out to walk to the dentist for part two of my crown. Crispy leaves coated with yesterday’s wintry mix crunched under my shoes as I walked, head bent down to keep the frigid air at bay and stop Jack Frost from nipping on my nose. The temperature was 25 degrees and the wind chill reading a mere 15 degrees as I exited the cozy house. The weather forecasters indeed got it right yesterday and alot of slippin’ and slidin’ was going on for the evening drive-time. Thankfully the slick roads dried out and the only snow was on the grass. The numerologists proclaim today is significant since the calendar date is 11/12/13. The lottery machines will be all abuzz churning out tickets for Lotto faithful who have been scratching their heads to configure today’s date into various number combos. The Little Wedding Chapel in Taylor was featured on WWJ this morning as they breathlessly related today’s agenda: multiple weddings and many couples renewing their vows non-stop throughout the day. The spokeswoman said it is easier to remember your wedding anniversary on a special calendar date. Hmmmmmmm. The only numbers magic that materialized for me today was surpassing the 400-mile mark in my 2013 walking miles. I kept setting the bar higher throughout the course of these three seasons and I will set one more goal – 500 miles before year end. Hopefully I will not bite off more than I can chew with this goal. I am realistic that it may be unattainable in a mere six weeks with wintry weather on the horizon, but I will strive to stride and do my best. Here’s an inspirational quote for you about goals. Stay warm everyone.

Magic is believing in yourself,
if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

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.
