This Week’s OwyheeStar News

Saturday at Owyheestar

Sadie Oct 2014 For BlogOctober has been kind. It got close to freezing, but so far there has not been a frost. We had a crazy dust storm come by late in the week; it was short-lived. The local farmers are making hay–pun intended. Truly, they are busy getting the crops harvested, and the ground winter-ready. The trucks are on the roads loaded with onions. We say what appeared to be very small medium-sized onions that looked to be well-cured. Maybe they were heading for storage.

 We are still awaiting the puppies. We cannot predict what we will get, and the timeline is moving out. We thought they might arrive as early as Thursday; however, here we are at Saturday. We are still waiting.
The gals can expect a walk today. Things look fine, and that is about all we can say on the topic. We all wait breath-abated for the magical moment. Then we will wait a bit longer to know anything concrete. Isn’t life grand? Yes, it is fabulous!

On a very personal note……

DSC00503 DSC00512Cliff is working on a myriad of projects here-there-and-everywhere around the farm. Beyond painting our home (pictured to the right) he is working on the farm house. It is old; it is in need of a lot of everything. Cliff is moving here to paint once he gets the windows replaced.

DSC00511Having our home with fresh paint makes my heart happy. DSC00506Seriously, we need new siding, but there are other priorities. The fenced yard is our primary puppy area–it is currently empty. The farm house will end up the same color; we hope it pulls the farm together. Of course, there is the big red shop behind everything, and a few miscellaneous out-buildings. There is more than the farm house next door too! As you can see there is a lot of work to be done here. Cliff has been working on this place since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. He followed his dad around, and helped like any respectable farm boy of the fifties.

Friends, Support, and Situations

The beloved Kona departed our world -- a special one that will never be forgotten...we are devastated for his family's loss.

I am thankful for our friends. The prayer support during this upheaval (with the finding of the breast cancer) is heart-warming. ❤ We cannot thank everyone enough. The surgery is in the rear-view mirror. The treatment is on the horizon. We have many things to consider; ultimately, Cliff says it is my decision. That is a heavy load to consider. Regardless, we are going to get all the facts; we will consider all the options. I want to stick around as long as it is possible–don’t we all. It is a good reminder that life in this world is a temporary affair. Our beloved Weims–they have shorter lives than most of our human companions. We absolutely must learn how to cherish, and to live in the moment. It is so easy to wish time by when hard times come. There is not a single moment that is worth wishing away. It is true; we don’t want to deal with the big problems of life. Nonetheless, no one is exempt. Thank you again, for being there with us!

As Always…

Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming. In the weeks ahead we can use them. We appreciate you all!
