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.

Sometimes you feel like a nut …

… sometimes you don’t. Frosty weather still prevails here in Southeast Michigan, and it was only 23 degrees with a real feel of 12 degrees, when I departed on my walk this morning.  By the time I got to Council … Continue reading

Tuesday Musings.

I sure am glad I don’t live in the northern ‘burbs because they’ve been blasted with snow the last week or so, and we’ve remained unscathed.  Whew! Monday morning when I left for my walk, the blah-looking lawns looked sugar-coated … Continue reading

Gulls just wanna have fun …

… even when they lose an hour of sleep thanks to Daylight Saving Time.  Grrr!  It wasn’t so much the loss of sleep for me, but, it seems like the day kind of just slips away from you, even losing … Continue reading

Taking it in stride.

Spring is just ten days from today. The calendar says it’s so. But, this morning it seemed a little difficult to think Spring-y thoughts when the temperature was 25 degrees and the north wind was a’ blowin’. Forget those negative … Continue reading

As the snow flies.

I suited up for a walk after a quick peek out the front door confirmed there was no snow, despite predictions for more of the white stuff.  So, I got ready in record time, grabbed the camera and peanuts, then … Continue reading
