This Week at OwyheeStar

 Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

First HayWe are experiencing Indian Summer type weather with a few intermittent showers. The hay is cut, stacked, and mostly gone. Unlike some other crops, there is not a lot of ground preparation needed. We just wait for spring.

Hay Stacking_6570We didn’t have a garden this year, but other people are gathering their produce and preserving it best they can. It will be tough to say goodbye to garden tomatoes. Even though we didn’t have our own produce to pick, we made frequent stops at the local farm stand. The corn has been excellent. They will have root vegetables all winter. When we have a garden, the Weims enjoy what we share. They love cantaloupe, watermelon, zucchini, cucumbers, romaine lettuce, carrots, green beans, etc. These make a better snack than a bone-shaped treat from the store.

This Week on the Blog

The blog topics w.ere once again varied. We started and ended the week with a lighthearted post–Housecleaning is for the Birds and Faces. You might not realize that Gibson and Zeus were actual litter-mates. They also traveled north together–thank you, Jeanne. Then we had the two Weim family who endorsed OwyheeStar. We cannot thank them enough. Finally, on Thursday, there was the open letter to explain our process and situation at OwyheeStar. If you have questions, read the Thursday blog.

On a very personal note

Every week brings a new challenge. We are attempting to view them as an opportunity. The farmhouse remodel is seeing progress; however, it is just not moving fast enough. That ‘s hard to accept. Nevertheless, we know when it is done we will be in a much better place. Shela is packing as fast as possible. Nonetheless, 45 plus years in one house can mean more accumulation that a person wants or needs. It is another opportunity to sort through our stuff and get rid of a lot of it. It just takes time to handle each thing. Nonetheless, each week there is progress. 

Our health continues to improve by bits and pieces. We have been trying to make our grandson’s football games. He is in the 7th grade–when he plays, he is the center. He has had that nasty flu and was quite cut up from what he described as intentional cleating of his leg. You know how things can go. Football is a tough sport. He is learning a lot, though. We are very proud of him.


As Always

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 tough to write the script for photos. Other times it is only a note and no pictures. If we can quickly find some photos, this is not a huge problem. If there is any way 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. DSC_0134edit

  1. I would like to replace the bone shaped treats for beans, carrots and fruits… and I will try it after the dental cleaning (I picked the hard way for learning lol). I wish you all the luck for the moving, hope everything works as expected and you can enjoy your new home soon :o)

    • You are so darned sweet. Our move could be described in words I am not supposed to use. Nonetheless, when it is accomplished it should be excellent. Whew…..
