Seizing the moment …


Today was still another round of autumnal bliss from start to finish.

I loved that long-anticipated, earlier start to my day, thanks to returning to Standard Time.

Yippee for that!

Now, going forward, our sunrise will be fairly steady, not straying by a full minute per day, like we’ve experienced in recent months. In fact, I was curious just how long before the sunrise goes in reverse and begins rising earlier daily – it is January 14th.   That’s a pleasant factoid from to cheer you, and to tuck away for a brutally cold and snowy day in January.

Today, while cutting down the rosebushes for the Winter, I was surprised to see so many huge rose hips and there were still dozens of blooms on each rose. In the front yard, while raking leaves, in between those crumpled-up, crimson-colored maple leaves, I found a healthy dandelion.  It looked a little out of place, just plunked down in the middle of the front lawn, a healthy and happy spot of bright yellow.

We couldn’t have asked for a sunnier Sunday; the bonus was that extra hour to while away in whatever manner we wanted … hope you put your “found” time to good use.

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
