OwyheeStar Week Two 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
The weather has been a bit fickle. Regardless, we cannot complain because it is winter weather. We went from below zero to mud. Our driveway and parking lot seemed a bit more like an early spring thaw–mud on top of the frozen earth. The frost has gone out of the ground in places. Where we normally park this is true. On the days, it has not been so, I parked on the lawn like a redneck according to Cliff. I say, I prefer not to have to have mud packed shoes. The crusted and piled frozen snow on the fields is disappearing too!
We have been busy with Sadie’s ten babies. They are very popular. We prefer thinking about their cute faces as opposed to the bitter attitude of the winter weather. Predicting what will happen next is impossible. We hope to be able to get the pups outside for a short romp soon.
This Week on the Blog
For 2016, we have a theme going–a plan to keep us on track. It may or may not work. Keeping our blog post fun and light on Sunday is something we hope to continue. People seem to like these short Sunday morning posts. Other than that we will be writing an informational post for Friday’s blog, and posting updates or stores as it is possible between Sunday and Friday. The Saturday Synopsis (like what you see here), has a personal flare. We comment on the local news, weather, and what is going on at OwyheeStar. In addition, we include these easy to access links for the once-a-week-reader, or for the person who wants to review something or pick up something they missed. The more personal news or comments are below this section. So many of you have been our friends over the years. Thank you for that. We like to keep you in the loop as it is possible. Here are those links from this week’s blog posts:
On a very personal note
We had partial distraction midweek when we celebrated Cliff’s 65th birthday. We ate lunch in Nampa and ventured on to Boise where we spent a little time at Cabelas. What guy doesn’t like that store? Back in Ontario by early afternoon, we stopped at the Outdoorsman. It is not as fancy at the big Boise store; however, it has those essential things that are eye-candy of a particular kind for those that like their guns and such.
I think I am doing well–considering everything. I’ve been using my arm too much. There has been entirely too much keyboard time. It is; however, almost impossible to limit the time spent. I try, and sometimes I succeed. Regardless, I think I am blessed and doing well. They (doctors, therapists, etc.) tell me it might be a lifetime struggle. Seriously, if it is the worst thing that comes my way I will count myself incredibly blessed.
(Note–thank you to all of you who continue to send us updates. There is a lot to be learned from other Weimlovers; it puts a smile on our faces too!)
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. 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. There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing!
