OwyheeStar Week Seventeen 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Extreme temperature changes are the thing this week; almost 90 degrees and then the cooling trend we see at work. Weather watching is a sport for many.
Mousse’s pups were featured this week. This picture is one of the many one-week photos the followers, fans, and families in waiting were treated to on the Monday update. The pups are all the traditional Gray Ghost Weimaraner (with the smooth coat). They seem to have this thing with their tongue–photos often capture it doing something. Possibly this pup is blowing razzberries at the Monday photo session. We cannot guess.
This Week on the Blog
The week started with Blue Longhair kisses. Isn’t that just precious? Speaking of the Longhairs (or as some call them–the Other Weimaraner), they made an appearance in several of the blogs this week. On Monday, we had two Longhairs–and Olli didn’t disappoint us. He has already become an accomplished water retrieving Weimaraner.
Anyhow, there is a mix of topics from worrisome to the fun Weimaraner gathering. We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did.
On a very personal note
We are still embroiled in our life-changing move. We are living in the farmhouse; however, there are seemingly endless things to get done. We need to have the old place emptied entirely by May 1st. How are we doing you ask? Well, there is quite a bit to finish, but we are making progress. Most of the basic living stuff is moved. There remains one pile of boxes and a few this and that. Cliff is locating his office and man cave to a room at his shop. All of this must be moved.
I have an office storage closet that is not emptied yet. The one box of office whatnot is sitting next to me right now. It calls. I tell it needs to wait for its turn. Thursday we were able to clean up the boxes in the carport. That was a huge accomplishment. Regardless, it will be a goodly amount of time until the kitchen and master bath are finished. We are using the installment plan. Get a buck; buy a board and install it. We also have to wait for our son for his help on the most technical aspects of the project. He is a contractor. He is in demand which is a good thing; however, we have to take a number. We have to pray for the cash and opportunity to move forward. Nonetheless, it is wonderful. We love living here, so the work has been worth it. Oh, and we keep adjusting our arrangement trying to make our things work and feel right.
(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 immensely 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!
