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

  1. Good one! The snow may not be fun, but it is beautiful. Ours was gone by nightfall.

      Thanks Anne – we did not get as much as expected, but what we got was wet, heavy and some ice underneath. It is pretty when it first falls. We will warm up to the 40s by week’s end, so hoping I can walk to the Park Friday – Sunday.

      Yes, it looks so dainty and delicate – but the streets and sidewalks are icy … there was a touch of freezing drizzle in the mix later after this fell. I remember you had a blog post last year that showed a fresh snowfall near the River and through a park and you said by the time you were ready to leave it had begun to melt. That is the nicest snow with the big snowflakes drifting lazily down.

      I wish our snow had skipped us … it had a layer of ice and they didn’t plow (that I can tell) and the roads are icy and full of ruts, same with the sidewalks. I hope when it gets to the 40s Friday and Saturday, it will help melt it away. Fingers crossed — my driveway and sidewalks are melted but I shoveled early in the day.

      Yes, this snowfall we had Monday into Tuesday and then some Tuesday during the daylight hours … thankfully it was downgraded from the original 4-8 inches and we got just 3 1/2 inches of snow, but it had some freezing rain mixed in which is not good. I got my sidewalks/driveway clear but looking down the street, the sidewalks and road were not clear this morning.

      He’s got that fur coat Ann Marie … I hope they kept a few peanuts handy to tide them over til I get back. I told them Sunday to take some home with them. 🙂 The streets are bad in the neighborhood and the sidewalks – I don’t think they salted or plowed … maybe just the main streets?

      I am glad we did not get the original forecast of 4-8 inches and got this instead, but I am sure we’ll get our whopper storms sooner or later. I’d like to zip through the Winter season entirely!

      Thank you Martha – we had big bursts of snow all day long … it would snow then stop. I like it when it is fresh and pristine looking.

      • How lovely that you get that beautiful. It doesn’t snow here. But your pictures are a gift to my eyes.

        Martha – I will tell you that the snow when it first falls is very beautiful – these snowflakes fell fast and furiously and I looked out halfway through the storm and saw this. We only got 3 1/2 inches of snow, though it looks like more. Unbelievably, we had mild temps and it is almost melted! We have a warm-up the end of this week. It was cold today. I walked five miles in three different parks to enjoy getting out before the ice and snow messes up my walking regimen. I take no chances on landing on la grupa! 🙂

    Oh, beautiful! We’re just back from the park (I mean hanging with squirrels) and it is so warm in Berlin that some plants are budding (or is it leaving out?), one bush was full of white flowers. Maybe I should’ve taken a photo??

      We had that last Sunday – people were running at the park in shorts and t-shirts – it was great!. Today was very cold … I was at three parks, two near the river and still have not warmed up. I should have worn a heavier coat. You should take a picture – the weather’s weird, like the year. My neighbor has a magnolia bush – it bloomed three times this year – crazy!
