Heat and more Heat

Monday June 22, 2009 Big Balsam Lake, Grand Rapids, MN

The temp peeked at 91 today, and was it humid.  Rained most of Sunday night into Monday morning.  When the sun came out it just got plain hot and muggy. 

Mike went fishing with our neighbor Al, they came back with 6 northern and a few sun fish and crappies.  Fish dinner Tuesday night.  We are going to marinade the fish and cook them on the grill. 

I finished the book Blood Lure, by Nevada Barr.  The 10th book in the series.  Very good, Anna Pigeon is the main character, she’s a National Park Ranger.  Every book takes place in a different National Park, the author gives you some history on each park.  Of course there is a murder that takes place and Anna is always in the thick of it.  She’s really good at her job, solves all the murders. 

I had my camera outside with me and got some pictures of the wildlife in the area. 


We try to keep the geese off the beach and grassy areas, they leave a  squishy mess.


Much better if they stay in the water.  I think I counted 13 babies.  Busy parents.


A humming bird coming in for a landing.


He made his landing and drank his fill.  I just love watching the humming birds, they chase each other and look like little dive bombers. 

It really was to hot to do much today so we just hung around the MH most of the day.  About five I had to turn on the air conditioning on I was getting over heated.

We had a knock on our door at 10:20 PM, one of the guests  couldn’t find the outside light switch.  They wanted to play a bean bag game outside.  Mike went up and turned their light on for them and we went back to bed.  Not sure how late they stayed up, but pretty sure they had a good time.
