The following are excerpts of what I've scrawled in my little notebook about the weather in the past week. Enjoy! (this was slanted since the rain, too, was slanted)
I love how the rain pitters and patters, how it splatters all over surfaces, consistent, uncontrollable. I love being able to look out of the window, where the chill seeps in, and see a world now foreign to me. It's a magical thing, rain.
It's been raining. Hard. The past few days have been ones where thunder and lightning prevail, accompanied by torrential rain which blurs the landscape out into hazy masses of blobs, drowning out the drone of class with its constant drumming upon the roof, and soaking anything beneath it.
It's a nice change, after the past weeks of stiflingly hot weather. But I dislike the cold that accompanies it - the chilly vines which take root in your toes and crawl their way onto your limbs. The chill seeps everywhere, reducing all into shivering figures frantically rubbing their hands. It's futile, of course. Who can withstand this weather?
It's frosty everywhere. I've got frosty fingers, frosted toes, and a smidge of frosting on my nose. But, really, my teeth are chattering unstoppably despite the thick jacket I've got on. I fear I might go into hibernation.
After this chilly weather, I've got baked bananas to keep me warm, similar to how 'nana ice cream' cools everything down. And if fulfilling an especial purpose, bananas deserve the royal treatment - that is smor-ised, or fluffernutt-ed. Add additional toppings like pomegranate arils / nuts if you wish. And of course, don't ever forget to enjoy.
Oh, and a moment to thank the lovely guys over at Sorted Food for their feature and the equally charming words that accompanied this post. Very aptly put indeed (chuckles)! *blushing a deep shade of fuschia* Do check them out for their uber-smexy food.
