OwyheeStar Week Thirty-five 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~A Week Later
Here is the basket of five blue pups that were born to Zula Blue. We were not sure they would fit into the basket. You might remember the same group pictured here last week.
We have been busy with the things of OwyheeStar. The computer snafu dumped things that have been impossible to find. Where could they be? They were not in the trash bin. They cannot be located on the backup, in the cloud, or on the timeline. Therefore, we have to create new pages. Why is it, that when you are swamped these things happen? There has to be a correlation.
The hay is cut and raked. It awaits the baler. We love watching that beautiful setup Chris has to manage the hay harvest. It is even more impressive when he uses the steamer (not sure what it is really called). Then there is the Patriotically painted tractor and swather which is beyond fun. Oh, what a sight it is to see them working in the local fields or out our dining window.

On a very personal note
Cliff has been sweating–not to the oldies either. He has been building a property line fence. He has several poles set. He also took out some more trees along where he is building the fence. (Speaking of the heat), there has been a reprieve. Our temperatures have not been pressing against the one-hundred (triple-digit) typical August temps.
We have been visiting the farm stand to get fresh produce. There is no garden this year. We can hope for next year; however, realistically there is still a lot to be done around here before beginning the new garden and getting chickens. Both (the garden and chickens) are one of the farmhouse goals. I (Shela) dream of a greenhouse. This scenario is nothing new. We will never get it all completed. Nevertheless, a garden and chickens are a must, and I dream of having the greenhouse while I am still young enough to enjoy it. OMG–I cannot believe I said that–at 66 years of age, I am not young. Nonetheless, it is younger once you arrive here than you used to think.
Thanks to You
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. We can fill in a bit when necessary; however, we like to keep the integrity of your writing real. A couple of sentences can go a long way–sometimes it is enough. Those that have sent us updates know we are more than likely to post it word-for-word.
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!
