The rain in Spain stays mostly in the plain

It has been raining for the last few days.  Our gorgeous, generous Spanish sun is hiding somewhere.  And we are cozying up in front of the fireplace.  Learning our Spanish.   Watching movies. Eating sweets that our neighbor Maria made.  Mmmm…

Tomorrow we will make the lemon bars and let Maria try some.  We are embarrassed by our baking skills, but these bars from Allrecipes are basically just mixing lemons and butter.  Even we can do that!  She may be shocked for life after trying these.

Aside from the rain, we are doing rather well.  Very happy.  Happy as clams.  This is definitely a proper sabbatical.  I even started writing our book on how to do the sabbatical, where to go, what to buy, pitfalls to avoid.  Maybe our kids will repeat this adventure with their own kids some day!
