Oh, the weather outside is frightful …


Oops … wrong holiday and wrong season!

But, in my defense, the weather, during the course of the last week, felt very Fallish and awfully frightful, with all this cold and blustery air, and, not just falling temps, but all the falling leaves as well. The high winds from the last few days have caused those beautifully colored leaves to wriggle free and land on lawns and sidewalks.

The trees on the Boulevard, and even in our neighborhood, that have not lost their leaves are just magnificent, all in tones of red, yellow and orange, and, again I say to myself … there is really no need to go up north to see the fall foliage – we have it right here in our own area.

The weather is not the only thing that is frightful. There was a slew of new Halloween decorations after last weekend, and I took some more pictures yesterday and need to upload them.  I realize there is less than a week ‘til Halloween now, but some of these people are so creative with their creepy décor, and I wanted to share the photos in future posts.

I especially like the corner house on Emmons Boulevard at Electric Street, a double lot, which features a ghoulish graveyard in front of their entire property, and, it sure is not for the faint of heart. It will make you shiver more than the cold wind, as it whistles through your wool cap and gloves.

A warm cup of cider, with a cinnamon stick to stir it with, would’ve been perfect after my chilly Fall walk, but, alas – there was only time to have a quick cup of coffee, paired with the season’s first clementines, then get myself over to the computer to log on to work, as I’ve been very busy, and that makes the days go by even faster.

Time is speeding by … tomorrow is the 300th day of the year and I’ve got 79 more miles to go to reach my goal.

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

    300 days has past us by already. Wow! How did that happen? You will make it Linda with some to spare. There is a lot of decorations out and some very artfully situated in trees, porches and front lawns.

      I was wondering the same thing Marge … with the colder weather brings the reality that the days are inching closer to Winter and year-end. On the bright side, only 145 days til Spring. 🙂

      Ann Marie – Hope you made it over there before the ugly weather set in. They have about a half-dozen of large inflatables as well, but, they are always collapsed at the time that I walk by. If you get a chance, you should park the car and have a look at his “graveyard” … alot of creative effort goes into that display.
