Winter Solstice … Just a Snooze-a-Rama.

12-21a

Alas, Winter has arrived. You wouldn’t know it from looking outside. All the white stuff from a week ago today is fading fast and there is a flood advisory now. It’s the shortest day of the year and I made it even shorter by deciding to sleep in. When I heard the rain pelting down on the patio roof behind my head, I mentally cancelled my errands … and my walk, then toyed with the idea of rolling over and getting still more sleep, but decided I’d better just get up and get it in gear. The dark mornings and early evenings made me lethargic and tuckered out, just like this young fella above. Given my dislike of this season, especially driving in the snow, I sometimes think I’d be better suited as a big old bear so I could hibernate ‘til Spring. Hope your 2013 Christmas shopping gig is all wrapped up with a bow on it on this “Super Saturday”, the second busiest shopping day of the year. Time to take a break, breathe in deeply and relax. Ahhh, much better.

About Linda Schaub

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, so 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 four 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, though 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. - Linda Schaub
