2017 14th Saturday Recap

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

     ~ Sleet, Snow, and Whatnot

Frost_5517The fickle spring weather continues. Mr. Winter insists on imposing his will. Yesterday, in the Treasure Valley as well as the Pacific Northwest, the winter-like weather made an appearance. We didn’t get the snow at OwyheeStar. Not far from here it made an appearance, and the moans of many could be heard. The frost was considerable earlier too!

Hay_5520The alfalfa looks good. Before long we will be irrigating and filling the pond for a puppy swim. Spring is such a fun time. Cliff also uses our pond to train for his hunt tests. He is preparing for one coming up the first weekend of May. Our homing pigeons flew the coop this winter. It has been a strange winter, and there is an outright pigeon shortage among those who use them for dog training. Rose (who lives at Emmett) parted with a few to help us get another start. Cliff brought them home this week. They are young, but we still have them locked in. They have to identify with their new location being their home, or they would try to fly back to Emmett. The beautiful thing about the homers is you can use them for training, and then they fly back to the nest.

On a very personal note

Evie Galoushes9086Cliff and I want to wish everyone all the best for Easter. We are more traditional in our approach to the holiday–thinking of it as Resurrection Sunday. Yes, we are aware of the history behind the Goddess of Easter. No, we are not against Easter Egg hunts and baskets. How you celebrate is a personal matter. This year, we bought the two great-granddaughters galoshes. Evangeline Grace (Evie) got the Princess Rain Boots. She has been stomping in every mud puddle she can find. River has the traditional yellow type, but they look perfect on her.
Cliff continues to work on the utility bath. He is doing the floor in sections. Who can say if another will be completed today, or not?!? It is coming together.

I am doing better healthwise. That being said, I still cough way too much, and there is a lot of phlegm. Every day is a bit better. The recovery speed is not fast enough to my liking. I am looking for the miracle where “poof” it is gone instantly. If that comes, I pledge to remember how thankful I am for instant relief. If not, I will continue taking it a day at a time. It is hardest on Cliff–there is nothing he can do. He has to watch and listen and suffer along. Anyhow, it is a lot better. I have a way to go. I am hoping for a full recovery soon.
