Yawn

I've got so much to do today, I've really got no business taking the time to write.  We're doing another event this weekend...only a one-dayer, so we'll be able to use Sunday for the pupose for which it was intended (a day of rest.)  We'll be in Sherwood--a town about 40 miles south of here--doing "Cruisin' Sherwood"--an annual antique car rally.  Never been there before, have no idea what to expect (the story of my life).  But I actually have managed to get myself well-prepared this time...  Spent the week doing procurement, production, and marketing work (buying stuff, making food, and creating signs.)  I feel so well-prepared that everything is bound to go wrong! 

I'm wondering if our weather-jinx will follow us to this event.  Going all the way back to last year, if there was some way the weather could screw us, it did.  This has held true so far THIS season as well.  It was hotter that hell for the Easter Egg Hunt.  Our newly-tuned-up (about $150 worth) espresso machine sat unused, and I had to throw away four gallons of milk I bought for the event.  Last week, after absolutely gorgeous weather all week long, it poured like a monsoon for the entire weekend.  I've have kept an eye on the weather report for tomorrow... First it said rain, then it said sun, now it says cold and cloudy.  Don't know what it's going to do in the end, but whatever it is, it will probably be whatever is most likely to discourage attendance at an antique car rally.  :-P 

Well, I'd better get to it!

    lots of love and hopes for good weather,
