I am SO wishing that this weekend's forecast (highs in the 60s, lows near 40) was the forecast for opening weekend. Looks like we'll be back into the 80s for opening weekend, and that's too hot for my wife to wear the blue velvet noble gown I made her. (Though I certainly would not want a return of the weekend when it was literally freezing at cannon and didn't seem to get out of the 30s all day. I remember buying a cup of coffee and standing in the sun to drink it, and I was still shivering.)

Mind you, just observing, not complaining. Not in the least. I didn't have to dig my car out of a snowbank even once this winter, or any winter in recent memory, and our cold comes in "snaps," not in big Arctic waves that bear down on you for a week or more at a time. Nope, we have it good here in Florida.

Just saying, a bit cooler would be nice ... you know?

Yikes! Now, with
4
days to go, Saturday's forecast is:
High of 82, low of 68.
Definitely not velvet weather.
And try as we might, there won't be fresh orange juice either. The harvest is dismal. Almost nil.

UUGH!! Opening day has been on the house calender for 2 months. I asked off at work 2 months ago. YESTERDAY my daughter and I realize that we have a scheduling conflict. She has a birthday party/sleepover friday night. So I am trying to get ahold of my boss to see if I can take sunday off instead.

I shall be bringing Mimosa stuff this weekend probably 2 bottles of each both days and possibly a veggie tray for a healthy snack as there will be much unhealthy stuff and drinking to be done just to try and help out.

My wife and I both remember that I had a really good idea about what to bring instead of orange juice.

And neither of us can remember what the idea was.

I'll bring something ...

We had Poinsettias for opening day of Sherwood. I had never had one before and they were quite tasty!  http://cocktails.about.com/od/cocktailrecipes/r/poinsettia_cktl.htm

Oh, and I've decided what I'm bringing, if I can only figure out how to make it without getting up at 3 a.m.

It's a raisin schiacciatta recipe that dates back at least to the Renaissance.

Weekend Weather:
Saturday : High 79, Low 66, 10% chance of rain
Sunday: High 77, Low 66, 30% chance of rain

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow morning!  :-* :-* :-*

BTW, NEXT weekend's weather has highs in the upper 60s. THAT would be perfect!
