More Book

I have to admit, working on the book about Spain doesn’t make for much of a blog. I spent my time chasing down some missing pictures* and gathering info from Spain and then settled in to do another couple of pages. That’s my offering today. *These same images have gone missing several times (not the…

Spain Book

That title, Spain Book, sounds ways more impressive than what I did today. I want to compile all the recipes, tips and photos from Spain into one piece. And also I want to use up a Living Social deal to get a hardcover book from Shutterfly before it expires in June. Really this works as…
