Savor this Sunday.


This day was a keeper – one to bottle up and recall when February’s bone-chilling temps and not-so-nice snow and ice give you the Winter blahs. When stepping out the door, I felt like the “Pure Michigan” ad should be playing in the background. We are blessed with a second weekend day of beautiful weather, and, if you’re lucky enough to have Columbus Day off, another pretty day is in store for tomorrow. Whether you did yardwork, sat contentedly on the front porch sipping coffee and watching the world go by, or took a Sunday stroll, I hope you got out to enjoy the day.

I decided to leave later than usual and walk around the neighborhood, then head over to the Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market, camera in tow. I’ve not used the camera as much as I had hoped, so I was looking for a few photo ops of goofy-looking gourds or monstrous pumpkins. I knew there would be rows of glass jars filled with jams and jellies, their silver lids glinting as sunbeams hit them, or, the usual assortment of honey that would make Winnie the Pooh salivate. The market didn’t disappoint with its flowers, spooky candles and ghastly ghost wreaths either. The place was bustling, and sales, unlike the weather, were brisk as patrons scooped up the tail-end-of-the-season fruits and veggies from a variety of vendors and perused and purchased homemade baked goodies. It seemed like everyone else, just like me, decided to partake in all that Michigan has to offer and capture the flavors of Fall for their dinner table or holiday decor.

As Bill Shakespeare said: “one touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”

About Linda Schaub

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, so 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 four 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, though 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. - Linda Schaub

    Oh Linda, I love your pictures. The vegetables look so fresh and inviting. I like the little ghost. The weather was so lovely I had windows open.

      Yes, just for kicks 🙂 … I just went to “look” not buy at the LP Market this time. I was a “regular” there when my mom was still alive … my mom used to love those beefsteak tomatoes and we would often have BLTs on the weekend so used to get them there a lot. And … she also loved those little new potatoes, so in September when they came out, if we didn’t drive out to Kurdzahl’s to buy those little taters, I’d get them at the LP Market. She liked boiling them up and slathering them in butter.
