Drippy, drizzly weather destroys sidewalk art.


This morning’s raindrops wreaked havoc with my walk – half of it anyway. I guess I’ll take the glass half-full approach and say that half of a walk is better than no walk at all. Anyway, I didn’t stray far from the ranch so I wouldn’t get soaking wet. Since I took a different route today I went down a street with a sidewalk full of children’s chalk scribbles. I stopped to admire the many funky-looking flowers in polka-dotted flower pots, colorful Easter eggs, the greeting “Happy Easter” and even a few hopscotch squares as well. Too bad this week’s on-again/off-again rains have hampered the efforts of these budding sidewalk artists who no doubt were anxious to get creative with their pastel chalks they received in their Easter baskets. Today’s wash out will no doubt obliterate any remaining scribbles and scrawls on the neighborhood sidewalks. It’s been a rather cold and rainy week for kids who were off school on Easter break and I’m sure the weather left alot of moms groaning and gritting their teeth as well. Stay dry and enjoy the weekend as it promises to be rain-free which is more than can be said for the upcoming week. The April showers will linger into May and leave us scratching our heads when we might expect those May flowers?

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.
