Ramblin’ and amblin’ along on a chilly April morn.


Well, I made my contribution to National Walking Day 2014 by walking 3.00 miles on a beautiful but chilly morning. I still have not made it down to Council Point Park, but I am waiting for perfect – translation warmer – weather with no chance for any ice to still be lurking about. At Meijer the other day, I bought a bag of peanuts in the shell for my peanut pals plus a loaf of “bird bread” (since I used up the bread I had saved for the ducks on myself when I ran out during the Winter) so I am good to go. I now await Mother Nature’s cooperation, and it is not looking like it will happen during the next few days since we’ve moved on to those pesky April showers. I hope you squeezed a short walk into your waking hours in honor of this day which recognizes walking for health purposes or pure enjoyment. Feet don’t fail me now!

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.
