This Week at OwyheeStar

Owyheestar March 2015 Notes

image001March is in full bloom; I need to get to work on the garden. This year my bay window is not filled with too many starts–it has none. I am going to have to purchase my plants. (Sad face.) I love starting my own, but there is a limit to what can be accomplished it seems. That is not my favorite theme, but I will talk about that a bit more in the personal note below.

We are busy with the spring pups. You might have seen the photos. Some were posted on Facebook, and of course; all can be found on the Internet. I need to update the availability. It is always a juggling act — this is true from the moment they arrive; until the day, they exit for their new homes. In reality, we try to manage the craziness, but there is only so much we are in control of when it comes to life. We try to do as little micro-managing as possible, and to (just) get the job done. I have added a blue, as well as a silver gray puppy photo into this update. I hope this makes you smile–it does me.

On a very personal note……

I love the green bursting forth; yes, I realize a lot of what see are weeds. Soon, (all too soon) we will be in a battle with them, but for now they offer delight.  It speaks new life to my heart, and with the recent brush with cancer, a person appreciates life even more. It has caused me to realize I have to take care of us more; I have to do the most important stuff, and not to agree to do anything extra. Yesterday, it was a day that burnt up a lot of time doing other than what I wanted to be working on. I had four various kinds of appointments–one was a borderline mammogram. I understand they need one, but it really wasn’t something I was looking forward to at all. 

Ellen quit working for us a couple of weeks ago. There is simply no way I can remotely keep up without some kind of assistance. I interviewed someone who might be able to help us for a few months. I think they can be good help, but I have to train them, and find out what type of skill-level they have. The changing of the guard (so to speak) is hard. I am going to believe it will work out for the good. Beyond, the afore mentioned—Imentioned–I had a lymphedema massage. I am wondering if I am going to need one for the rest of my life. As the therapist pointed out, I abuse my arm a lot more than the average person. There is a lot of swelling, and we are trying to keep it at-bay as much as possible. I work on the issue between visits, but the process is uncomfortable to some degree. I am sore today. That being said, I am so very thankful to have the opportunity to get these treatments. George is a very skilled lymphedema massage therapist. He worries he is not helping me enough—howenough–how sweet. I look at it very differently. If the inflammation were to spiral out of control, I might not be able to what needs to be done. To me, it seems that I am fortunate.

As Always…

Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming. They brighten our day; and allow us to have something to share. We had so many sitting in the folder waiting for me to work them up, but they have either timed-out, or been used. We have one ready to go, and a couple that can work into something. Cliff and I are sure we can come up with something if we need to do so. The updates save a lot of time for us. It is a toss-up for the folks that read the blog. Many people crave our topical discussions; nevertheless, the updates are manna for the soul. We hear from people every week that love seeing the photos, and reading about other people’s Weims.
