Greetings and salutations on this first day of 2015.


It was a quiet New Year’s Eve for me, except for the fireworks going on in the neighborhood from 11:00 p.m.-ish to 1:00 a.m.-ish. We have bitter cold weather here today and the wind has been furiously howling since yesterday, but no snow.

This morning it was wonderful to huddle under the blankets and just ease into the new year without a care in the world.

I resolve this year to walk more, worry less and to write more and whine less. Whether or not those resolutions get accomplished during the course of the upcoming year is yet to be determined, but they sound good on paper anyway.

I look at each brand-new year with hope and liken it to the stock market. You’ll have your gains and your losses, hopefully not many of the latter. There will be ups and downs … many, if not most, of which are out of your control.

Hopefully the good things will far outweigh the bad things for each and every one of you. I wish you prosperity and good health for the upcoming year … and beyond.

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.

    I hope everyone starts a new page in their book of 2015 with full force forward in health, wealth and hapiness. Plus keep the snow in Arizona.

    Amen to that Marge for that snow. Heard now it might be just a rain event here in our neck of the woods. Where’s that thumbs up icon when you need it. You know I wish you health and happiness – escape the big flu epidemic. Every time I put on the news it is the #1 story.
