This Week at OwyheeStar
This Week on the Blog
The embrace of autumn is hugging us tight midway through September 2015. Snow has also flirted with the not so far mountain ranges. Winter is sending us a message that it is coming before we know it. Nonetheless, we hope to have long and temperate fall at OwyheeStar.
The fires are fewer, but in places they are still burning. The dry thirsty earth welcomes the cool and wet as well as fire-stifling snow. Living in Eastern Oregon (not the evergreen Oregon most people imagine) we are not in a hurry to see the naked trees. Leaves are already toppling off with increased numbers each day. The bare trees are most certainly not the only nakedness. The fields are being stripped and in turn exposing dirt–in many cases the color of our beloved Gray Weimaraner. Shades of gray are in season for winter. We cling to what is left of the lush summer green, knowing before long we will crave the green and colorful color of spring and summer. We are a four season region.

On a very personal note
A lot of crazy things happened this week. Adversity comes and more often than not a person would like to avoid it. It is not always possible. Cliff and I have worked on the farmhouse remodel as diligently as possible. We are way short of our goal. Clearly, we are going to move in there with it vastly unfinished. For me, this is beyond challenging emotionally. I am a person that likes organization, order, and simplicity. Cliff is discouraged he cannot provide this for me. When all is given what more can a person ask? Since Cliff’s father passed on we have been flung into something so huge most people could never imagine taking it on. Nonetheless, we are going to chase our dream and hope there are no more setbacks. We are going to make a lot of people unhappy because there will be no OwyheeStar visits until we can pull things together. We don’t have the chunks of time required to give to others. What we have to give is needed for our grand kids.
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. That being said, we are especially grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. It is very difficult to write script for photos. Other times it is only a note and no photos. If we can easily find some photos this is not a huge problem. If there is anyway possible, it is most helpful to get both–at least three sentences along with the photos. Being stretched thin on every side means we are in desperate to keep enough material available to create the daily blog with minimal effort. Sometimes having to write the whole blog (with all the OwyheeStar Weim interruptions) can mean working it more than two hours–so as you see what you send is so important. Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming–we need the updates.
