I had the sun in my eyes and the wind in my straw …


er, hair ….

Well, it was just a feel-good day, wasn’t it? As I walked out the door, a strong sun was up and shining down and the birds were all atwitter in the neighborhood … what a gorgeous morning we were blessed with. I had my light jacket off before I even reached the Park so I had to tie it around my waist to enable me to dig in my cargo pockets for peanuts and the camera, when the occasion arose for each. There was a gusty breeze blowing which threatened to topple my bun and it pulled out some wayward tendrils which were whipping around my face as I walked. But it still felt good. Late Summer days like this should be bottled up and put away for those cold and blustery Winter days ahead. The Park was busy this morning … full of walkers, runners and a few bicyclists, and, of course everyone you passed along the trail commented on the beautiful morning. While walking home, I noticed that harvest décor is springing up everywhere. Fall is my all-time favorite season and I just love the holiday décor, especially the mums, hay bales and pumpkins, and, of course, those beautiful autumn wreaths that adorn so many doors. The scarecrows always make my day with their goofy grins and perpetual smiles. Perhaps we should take ourselves less seriously and manage to paste a smile on our face more often too.

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.
