The pause that refreshes.


Like a cool drink on a hot day, this morning’s almost-feeling-like-sweater-weather was a welcome respite from this Summer’s heat. The weather folks say it has not been this cool since the 4th of July weekend.  It was extremely quiet as I trekked through the neighborhoods … no air conditioners running for a change, with windows and doors thrown open and cool air drifting through homes.  My boss was out today, so his absence, and the cooler weather, made for a delightfully slow stroll and contributed four more miles toward my ultimate goal.  Mother Nature gets an “Atta Girl” for her efforts … so, can we keep this delightful weather, this little pause that refreshes, for a few more days please?

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

      This cooler weather perks me right up Ann Marie. Fall is my favorite time of year, even thought I know it signals the cold and snow and ice are on the way, and, you know I’m a weenie about driving in it. I’ve already been stocking up on groceries for over the Winter as I don’t like to drive in Winter any more than I have to. This morning felt like a touch of Fall was present.
