A baker’s dozen.


The number 13, unlucky or otherwise, has resurfaced for the second time in three months on a Friday on the calendar. Well, I’m thinking I’m fairly safe today since I don’t have to leave the confines of the house – in fact the majority of my day will be spent in the kitchen where I remote into work from my laptop which sits on the kitchen table. Enough of me since you all know about my work gig. The weather forecast for tonight and all day tomorrow is sounding rather ominous and every time I listen to the WWJ and WJR meteorologists, they are adding more inches of snow to the original prediction. Well, a light dusting over all that ice that accumulated last Sunday night would have suited me just fine … sigh. Not so great either is that the majority of office/company holiday parties will probably occur tonight or Saturday night. Indeed, it is a weekend to stay in the house, if possible, in your jammies and bunny slippers or your cozy sweats, and embark on such holiday adventures as baking holiday treats or perhaps writing out all those Christmas cards since time’s a tickin’ and the busiest post office mail delivery day will be Monday. Perhaps you want to just veg out in front of the TV and catch up on all the holiday movies. Go ahead – put your feet up because you’ve earned it. If cookie-baking is on your agenda, before you head home to hunker down, better stop at the grocery store to ensure you have all the ingredients for your holiday treats so you won’t be running to your neighbor for a cup of sugar. (Do people still do that?) If there is a silver lining to the number 13, the only one I can think of is a baker’s dozen or 13 treats instead of 12! Happy baking and stay safe everyone.

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.
