This Week at OwyheeStar
We are enjoying all May has to offer–sunshine, rain, crops (and gardens) growing, flowers, and more. Did we mention rain? This week has been a page out of a typical Western Oregon chronicle. Honestly, in this part of Oregon, we are more than a bit short of water for some of the farmers. This is a very welcome event. Our hay is loving it, as are the lawns. We can hardly keep up with the grass, and the voracious-growing weeds. Why is it, that you have to work hard to get what you want to grow, but silly weeds thrive no matter what happens?
Those (of us) living with the Weimaraner, we are happy for the spring weather. We want to be out and about with our friends. Oh, by the way, we noticed Wendy and Rupert at the beach again. My heart aches with envy. I love to go to the Oregon Coast. It is healing to my soul. I should (if only it were possible) add a dose of ocean to my healing mix. I can say only that it might happen in the next couple of years. I am happy Rupert, and Wendy can go for me.
Let us not forget we started the week early with news of another Willow achievement. She does it all, and we thank Jan for all she does with (and for) Willow. Their list of achievements are nothing short of amazing. You can read more about it on the Monday (May 18th) Blog.

On a very personal note……
It has been a good week I would say it has been a productive week for around here for everyone, except myself. I spent quite a bit of time outside the home going to treatment. This is not a complaint; I feel the gift of life flowing in. My massage therapist, physical therapist, and acupuncturist are amazing. What they have done for me is extraordinary. They all warn me not to overdo; however, the fact I am as well as I find myself, is miraculous. Every day I feel more strength. By the way, all three of these folks have a special love for the Weimaraner. What are the odds? Stephan is beyond extraordinary. Until recently, he lived with three Weims. He still shares his home with his lovely wife, and their beloved Weimaraner. That is my kind of person–who better to give me treatments? I am just saying, “What are the odds?” If you knew the whole story, then you would know how extremely miraculous all of this is, and how the stars aligned to give me the best possible scenario. No, I don’t believe I am at the center of the universe, but your prayers, support, and concern had to move things heavenly. How do we know what power we have, and how our concern for another makes a difference? We do not understand the power of prayer, love, and empathy. It is a potent potion. Thank you for all for your gift to Cliff and I.
Cliff has been working very hard on the old farmhouse. Our son Rich, has been out to supervise, and to do the things only he can do. The cabinet bases are mostly set into place for the new kitchen. The upper cabinet shells are attached as well. Our brand-new kitchen has had two windows installed. Since we are closing a doorway to make more room for the culinary section, other adjustments are happening too. Cliff has been busy painting the bedroom; he and Martin installed hardwood flooring in the kitchen Deven has helped with cleaning, and demolition where possible–not in that order per say. It is a huge project; nevertheless, this is more than doable. Mostly, it is labor. It is wonderful (nourishment) to my soul.
Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming–I always need material. I desire inspiration, and the updates brighten our day. Yes, and it allows us to have something to share.
