Wilting on this Wednesday …


We are officially immersed in those dreaded “Dog Days of Summer” so, no wonder this wicked heat and high humidity is so unbearable, leaving us wilting on this Wednesday.

I would like to know what the above young lady’s secret is?

This flower child always looks as fresh as a daisy when I pass by on my daily jaunts to Council Point Park.  I may feel perky enroute to the Park, but on the return trip, not so much, and, on days like today, I’m draggin’.

Today is National Simplicity Day, so I am keeping this post short and sweet, just like my walk this morning, but I’m leaving you with a message:

Don’t hurry, don’t worry.  You’re only here for a short visit, so be sure to stop and smell the flowers. ~ Walter C. Hagen

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

      Ann Marie – you make me smile. Yes it was “Simplicity Day” so it was just a short-and-sweet blog like the walk. Hate this humidity, and yes — Mother Nature’s torrential and non-stop rain stopped me in my tracks as well. A shame because it cleared up nicely later, but I’m not a fan of walking in the heat so really tonight would be a tad too warm to enjoy a walk, though I’d like the exercise and the miles. I will say “hi’ to Miss Marge who is enjoying being home, but not that humidity as it wreaks havoc with her breathing.
