Hoodwinked by Mother Nature who insists it is still Autumn.


Well, I wavered a bit on whether to walk, since it was so windy this morning, but there was no precip, so I ventured out. It was one of those “hold onto your hat” days for sure. I lost a beret at the Park last year when a swift wind whooshed down and plucked it from my head. That wicked wind sent it hovering, in drone-like fashion, across the Creek where it eventually snagged onto an old dead branch out of my reach. Today, I had my red knitted headband on, but it kept creeping up and away from my ears so it didn’t do much good, save for making me look Christmassy since it was bright red and my coat was green, and each time I flipped up my jacket hood, it promptly fell back down. I didn’t head to Council Point Park as it is such an open area for the most part, so I figured it would not make for a very pleasurable walk. Leaves were lifting off trees and swirling around everywhere and I sure hope those in my neighborhood head up to Fort Street, saving me the chore of raking them again this weekend. During Wednesday’s walk, the weather was so beautiful that I asked myself: “So why end your goal at 500 miles? Why can’t you make a new goal? Supersede last year’s?” Perhaps I’ll ponder on that grandiose goal setting just a wee bit longer – after all, 501 miles would be besting last year’s goal, so why quibble over specifics? As to the solution …. “the answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind”.

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.
