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.

Loosie Goosies.

“Walking On Sunshine” … I wanted to sing that song out loud because the sunshine and bright blue sky sure felt good after endless days of either rain or gray and gloomy skies. The topic of “World Turtle Day” was … Continue reading

Tuesday Musings.

This morning’s trek was pretty much over even before it started.  Though it rained in the early hours, as it neared time to leave on my walk, I peered out the window and was pleasantly surprised.  Yay – no rain!  … Continue reading

Fields of fuzz and a fur baby.

It was just a couple of weeks ago that thousands of dandelions infiltrated the grassy areas at Council Point Park.  At a glance, it resembled a golden carpet. And now those dandelions have gone to seed, much to the chagrin … Continue reading

Forward … march!

I don’t always hurry through the ‘hood when I walk.  Sometimes I take my good old sweet time.  Today was such a day. Yesterday’s weather was abysmal – there is no other word for it.  From early morning until nightfall, … Continue reading

Sweet indulgences.

My boss was at a meeting this morning, so it provided the perfect opportunity to meander a little more than usual, like I do on weekends.  The wind was blowing like crazy, the prelude to what will be another rainy … Continue reading
