By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    Is it serious? The post will only appear after its moderated?

    :-O

    I posted one before this one and it didn't appear, instead came an alert saying that it will be moderated.

    Wonderful avatar, I am wondering why water droplets tend to be into a spherical shape? :-?
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive

    @science, because when the drop falls it suffers equal pressure on all sides.

    @amatsuscribbler, I only did a google search. =;

    Dear Diary,

    Luckily I had pizza last night.

    I'll be taking Laika for a walk in a minute. The only train I'll see today is the one that runs alongside her favourite walk.

    Since we're talking about food, last night I made a fake stroganoff to be eaten with rice. It was very taste, I ate twice.

    Diary, the traffic was very light today, bless God.

    Mumbai-belly or rather the train's bid to poison me, made the journey down to Cochin a trifle tedious, but it was just one of those 24 hour things (I hope) and I already feel much better.

    The homestay at Fort Cochin is perfect. No TV, no wifi, no dogs and the children I've seen so far, lovely and well-behaved.

    Vanilla said: Helvio was promoted to Special Member.
    Just until you catch up on points.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    WOW Diary, the things are going so fast at this night. =))

    Dear diary,

    I'm not awake, yet.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,213 mod
    @Helvio - I hope you haven't been hacked! :-O
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    No, I haven't. it is just a little tricks from vanilla @amatuscribbler.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod
    Dear diary, I left with good intentions to walk around and see the sights slowly by myself, but instead was lazy and took a rickshaw. But maybe it was just as well as it was so hot today. I think I know how an ice cream feels like in hell!
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Marianne, don't forget to drink much water.

    Someone wants a little bit of cold? Because I have it a lot. :-S

    Poor you! But if it's only a bit of a cold, it's probably man flu!

    A foreboding sky @Helvio. Lovely colourful buildings though.

    Dear Diary,

    This morning my bed was so warm and comfy, everyone in Kitely at 8am was lucky I turned up at all.

    A foreboding sky. But not bad happened. :)

    Did you like this colourful buildings? Great, my house wasn't on the picture, but it's red too.

    If I thought that 41 degrees (feel like) was bad yesterday, today's even worse at 43 degrees. Being so humid definitely doesn't help.

    I have bought a few limes and a big bottle of soda that I keep in the fridge, so I can live off lime sodas when I get fed up of all the water I'm pouring down my neck. Sun cream is coming out with me tomorrow when I hit the backwaters on a boat!
