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.

Happy feet, happy heart …

The pathway was perilous, so I went to Plan “B”.

“When snow falls, nature listens.”  ~ Antoinette van Kleeff Correction:  when snow falls, EVERYONE takes notice!  Mother Nature shook up her extra-large snow globe last week in some of the southern states – unbelievably, Texas and Alabama got slammed with … Continue reading

Frozen Friday.

It was a day tailor-made for Frosty the Snowman … in fact, just like Frosty, I felt like I might melt away once I stepped into the warm house. But, despite the morning’s bone-chilling temperature, it was dry and without … Continue reading

Well, say it isn’t snow!

This morning I was eating breakfast and decided I had better dig out the snow boots and boot tray and have the shovel ready for Saturday morning.  That was in the 5:00 o’clock hour.  My thoughts were prophetic, because just … Continue reading
