This first day of July is starting off hot and humid. The sky is dark which means we'll be getting rain and maybe even some thunderstorms. We had thunder and some lightening last night but very little rain and it didn't amount to much. It's just dreary looking outside this morning. I had wanted to go to a local (what we call the bread store) outlet which sells day old bread, muffins, and all sorts of cakes and donuts. Everything is brand name and sells for less than half price of what is charged at the supermarket. I usually stock up on stuff when I shop there and put it all in the freezer. Not only is it a huge savings but freezing it keeps it fresher. But, with the sky as dark as it is my trip to the bread store will have to be put on hold until next week. I certainly don't want to get caught in a downpour or booming thunder. Does the weather affect your plans or do you go out anyway if the weather is bad?

When my kids were little I had a freezer filled with day old bread and other bakery items. One of my good friends ventured to the bakery outlet and brought me enough to fill my freezer. Of course I let her use my freezer to store her items too. It was the least I could do for her generosity.

In Oregon we have had over 40 inches of rain so far this year, but it has been dry lately. Umbrellas are shunned by "real" Oregonians too.We had a brief shower early this morning, I was surprised to see.It is only hitting the low 80s after the clouds burn off lately.
