Melting in Minnesota

Hi guys, it's me, Mama.

I'm hot. And not the, "Wow, look at HER, she's HAWT", hot, but the sweaty, red faced, burning inferno hot.

Heat indices over 100 with the humidity at something like 1,014%.

And you know what? I love it. Lack of AC and all. If you ever have the opportunity to experience Minnesota in the summertime, please do so. It truly is amazing.

The Mr. and I took the kids to a lake yesterday and then onto a sandbar on the Mississippi today and it was cemented in me that I am, indeed, created for water. Lakeside living would suit me to a T.

Unfortunately, country living with acreage and animals and crops suits my husband to a "T" and, as hard as I try, I can't come up with a way to reconcile our dreams. Minnesota has oodles of lakes. And plenty of farms...but no farms with lakes. Or lakes with farms.

Fer dumb.

Let me show you just how much fun we had...

Keep floating in this direction and you'll land in the Gulf of Mexico...

This week, to my utter delight and happiness, will be mostly spent on water.

My soul is singing a song of giddy contentment.


  1. I've only been to Minnesota in the winter, and it snowed hard - it was ridiculous!
    Looks like you guys are having an awesome time!!

  2. We actually live close to a lake and it is cooler so we take our walks on the boardwalk and watch everyone staying cool.

  3. Looks refreshing. It's not any better with heat in Wisconsin. No natural A/C for me. The lake breeze is just not there :( We have been lucky most of the spring nad summer as we have been way cooler then everyone else. Not this past week. BLECK.

  4. What a great way to spend the day! Glad you guys had fun :-)


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with long as they are respectful!
