Ho, ho, ho-hum.

12-21-16

Ho-hum … indeed!

So, today it is officially Winter.

It seems kind of silly marking this astronomical and calendar event, since we’ve already endured our share of teeth-chattering and bone-chilling cold. Not to mention, after last weekend’s second measurable snowfall, the ambiance of the newly fallen snow has worn out its welcome and merely tried our patience.  In my opinion, snow should be limited to Christmas Eve only – just for effect, and then be whisked away shortly thereafter.

Today is the shortest day of the year, but take heart … the days will get longer as we slowly creep toward Spring.

With 16 inches of pre-Winter snowfall woes under our belt already, I leave you with this thought:  “Winter is not a season, it’s an occupation.” ~ Sinclair Lewis

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.

      Wow, I never thought of that Ann Marie, but you are right! I liked that quote as well – it sure fits the bill for our current season doesn’t it? (I wish our current season was Spring though … but Spring can be nasty with its ice storms too unfortunately.)

    Sinclair Lewis must of lived near Michigan. Today is not a day for you to walk. The snow is melting and very slippery. Be careful….

    Today was a little better … almost relented and took a walk, but thought I should take the car for a spin instead … sigh. I agree with you Marge – Sinclair Lewis must be a Michigander.
