OwyheeStar Week Thirty-eight 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon!
The harvest moon closed out yesterday and left a welcome for this beautiful new day. The fall harvest continues as we drive to and from town we watch the field being cleaned to the ground. There is field corn left standing, beets remain, and onions are going to storage. The last cutting of hay will be added to the stack in the weeks ahead. We cannot predict exactly when this will happen. The colder temperatures speak to Autumns imminent arrival (September 22nd–next Thursday). We would love to see a warming trend and extended temperate weather known as Indian Summer. We can hope. Some years this extends almost to Thanksgiving. The late summer pups
The late summer pups (or the last of them) leave today. We will miss their sweet faces. Nevertheless, those that left yesterday have already sent us cute photos. People worry that the Mama will be depressed but by this time the pups are weaned and Mama is not having their shark-teeth biting her teats either. They become pretty sore, but a mother gives her all for her babies.

On a very personal note
It is no secret to those that follow us. We have had very little time for personal things or to work on the farmhouse. Cliff has the fence tacked up on the west side of the property. This fencing is different than the puppy fence. It is a boundary fencing–he has dug the post holes got them set. The wire is strung. He says there is some additional work to be done, but it is up. He is busy watering the hay for what is probably the last time this year. Other than that, he has some waterlines to dig and a few minor electrical changes to be made before winter arrives.
I feel as if I have spent every ounce of energy and bit of time with all that is associated with puppies. Nonetheless, I could put a dream come true maker on a resume should I start seeking employment. It sounds impressive. (Lol) There is (simply put) no way I could have made it through the last month without our granddaughter (Christina‘s) help. We are so very thankful. She is great with the pups and takes good care of us too!
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!
