We had a long streak of terribly hot, humid weather which kept the A/c on, the oven naturally off. Coupled with concessions I made while recoving from my latest surgery (buying bread, using the dryer, using more convenience foods, etc), I am very leery of my next electric bill. Time to reign this in, as an effort to control costs. The heat finally cleared along with the humidity, so I am back to hanging clothes on the porch, and today found me, with DD's help, getting some baking done. Heat and humidity returns tomorrow.
