It was a beautiful day today...again. Kevin came inside after feeding the baby Trevorettes at lunchtime and said 'I think it's going to rain... I can feel it in the air'.... well, I looked up and saw no indication whatsoever, not a cloud in the sky. But I know better than to doubt Kevin's intuition. We walked over to Martin and Clara's restaurant to deliver some fresh eggs as a Holy Week gift. We got there and it was packed. I don't think we've ever seen their place so crowded. Holy Week is by far the busiest week for them during the year, and busy it was! We didn't go to eat, just to visit. I played a game with Tamara and we did our rounds and talked with Nachoo, Paola and Diana. Martin was running around, paying attention to all his customers. He saw us and came right over to say hello. The sun was blazing hot. It was a gorgeous day, which was great for Martin and Clara. About an hour later, we said our goodbyes and headed home. As we were walking down our driveway, that misty rain cooled us off. It felt divine. It's not unusual for the mist to fall without any clouds overhead. Then, it came, about an hour later, the skies were still bright, but the wind picked up and the rain started to fall. True and proper water droplets, none of this light mist. And it poured for about an hour. You could hear the trees, grass and flowers say aaaaahhhhh! It was our first, real proper rainfall in many months (well, it did rain in early March for two days, but not like this... this was a serious downpour). The rainy season doesn't officially start until May, but we're not complaining. We love our sunny days, no question, but we equally love the rain, too. We miss it, actually. I don't miss the cold and snow, but the rain, yes, I admit, I do. So, Kevin's gut feeling was right on the mark. He's very rarely wrong. He's much more accurate than any weather man.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
