In Every Change...

"In every change, in every fallen leaf there is
 some pain,
 some beauty. 
And that's the way new leave grow."

~Amit Ray

Vacation officially begins on Tuesday morning, our 25th wedding anniversary, and we will be celebrating for the next 3 weeks or so. The day trips are planned, and the cameras are on standby. Plumas will probably be the longest trip in terms of distance and time spent on the road, but this year is simply a must! Not only are the leaves all lit up and ready for photographing, but there is an added feature to visiting Plumas County... the quilt barns! Over 70 barns, throughout the county, will be decorated with different squares of colorful quilt patterns! It's like one big public art project sprinkled all over the county! I can't wait! My cameras will be getting an extra workout this October in Plumas. The leaves, the quilt barns and the Halloween decorations. A true feast for the weary photographer! 

But don't think our vacation is all about the trips here and there, it's also a wonderful chance for Alan and I to get into the kitchen with some delicious, organic ingredients, and cook up a storm! I have been wanting to make some cannoli and some risotto, and I know Alan has a few culinary ideas up his sleeve. And then there is the time we need to spend on the continuing project of unpacking, and getting the house in order... finally! So there will be days when we will just stop. Clean out a box. Paint a wall. Swim in the pool! You know... just enjoy our new home. Wine and fondue. A decadent dessert. Midnight swims. Long autumn naps.

 What more could I ask for?
