A Tropical Heat Wave

Along with the rest of the country, New Hampshire is experiencing a tropical heat wave.  I suppose it wasn't the best time to move out of our air-conditioned condo into a house that has air-conditioning in the bedroom only.

Don't get me wrong....I'm SO happy we made the move and I LOVE the new house.   But heat and me don't get along.

I have vacation days I need to use up before September, and since Hubby and I have been a bit busy and haven't made it to a lake or pond to go canoeing, we both took today off for that reason.

Now, usually, when we plan a day off to do something outside, somehow it always ends out raining.   But on this day, we had hot, steamy, sultry weather.   I even wondered if it would be too hot to canoe.

We went and picked up "The Canoodle"  (its official name) at my brother's house, where it's been living the past three years while we had a condo with no place to put it.   And we took it to a lake that Hubby passes by on his way home from work.

It's called Lake Mascuppic, in Dracut, MA.   As soon was we got there, we thought how nice it was.....there was a nice breeze and the lake was amenable to swimming.

We spent the next 3 hours swimming, canoeing, and relaxing.  It's always more fun to do something like this when you know that everyone else is working!    It certainly helped us beat the heat.   And now The Canoodle has a special place in our own backyard.
