Octobrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

10-05-14

It was blustery and the winds were gusting mightily when I left the house this morning on my walk. I left later as I wanted to pop in at the Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market to take some pumpkin photos, but there were no pumpkins or unique-looking gourds to be found. I saw a few Spaghetti Squash and Butternut Squash, both of which are rather blah looking, so I just wandered about taking in the displays, while getting a flavor for Fall, and snapping a few pictures as I meandered through the Market. There were rows and rows of maple syrup and honey, perfect for drizzling on pancakes or cornbread, and, I saw specialty baked goods like homemade apple cake from the veggie vendor where I took these shots. The Farmer’s Market flags were whipping around furiously and looked like they might fly right off the pole where they were anchored. The vendors were still selling personal watermelons, peaches and pears, and some apples as well. Hard to imagine eating watermelon with the temps as low as they got last night. I have to make a trip to the cedar closet for some warm woolens before I venture out tomorrow. The “Farmer’s Almanac” Facebook site suggested the Autumn months are as follows: October – breezy, November – wheezy, December – freezy. They got that right!

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.
