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

What do you do on a sunny day?

When the weather is nice where you live, what do you do?

I take my laptop outside and work in the garden, as I find that very rewarding indeed!

What about you? What are the things that you look forward to doing when the sun comes out?

    Don't you like the sun? Or is it too hot to go out when it's sunny where you live?

    It never really gets that hot in England, so we are able to go out and enjoy the sun. There are hardly any homes in the UK that have their own air conditioning!

    I go out to sit on the grass, I read books or I study for the school while I enjoy the sun. ^^

    I'd take a nice long walk around my neighbourhood and try to capture some pictures using my phone.

    I like to do that too. It's amazing that there are so many nice things to take photos of near where I live, because I take it for granted a lot of the time.

    i like to lie on the beach , the sun light warm up me and the seabreeze cool my face and toes. They help me to release stress and make me full of positive energy.

    I think the beach is a great place to be, and it allows you to relax more than you are able to anywhere else, which is great. I love going to the beach, but don't usually have enough time.

    In summer, when the sun is shining, I find a shadow in the park for succesful work without stress. I don't like very bright days, but my best photos of places were make these days.

    Oh, I love working outside in the summer. I look forward to the warm days so much. I am working outside today, and am really enjoying myself!

    Does it mean that you don't work during summer time @farinama?
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.

    That sounds like the kind of job I would like! Working in the winter months when I don't want to go outside, and then being able to enjoy the summer without having to do anything other than have fun.

    I mostly stay at home and listen to music or watch some movies. But sometimes I hang out with my relatives cause it's cool to go somewhere and spend a day with nice people.

    Yes, it's very important to spend time with loved ones whenever you're able to, as they are special people in your life, but lots of us just don't manage to find the time.

    I like going out so I feel I have missed out if I'm staying in when it is a sunny day. That said, if it is too hot outside, I'm glad to sit under my ceiling fan.

    Yes, I feel the same. I stayed inside all day on Saturday because I had a lot of house work to do, and I feel as though I really missed out on the sunshine!
