2017 34th Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~September 2, 2017
This morning while we played with puppies, the roar of the stack wagon picking up the bales of hay caused us to take notice. The pups were unfazed by the ruckus. It took little to no time to get a load, and I captured this photo as the driver went to set it in the stack. Harvest is in the works and will continue for several weeks. Some crops like the sugar beet crop hold off until October.
The Hay got whipped around during the recent windstorm; however, our hay guy managed to clean it up nicely. We do so appreciate the quality of work and our relationship with this family. Cliff says there are 154 bales in the stack and it looks like we will get another cutting before Mr. Winter arrives.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today!
What a variety we have this week! We began with two fun updates (Sunday and Monday) and then moved to Mesquite’s Golden Year Placement. (BTW) We will hear more from Mesquite soon–the daily reports have been pouring in. We so appreciate her family’s knack to incorporate her and the continual updates. Finally, we moved to the stories of impending loss, grief and our thoughts of preventing the untimely or accidental loss. We have Part Two of Extending Our Time in the works. You will see that soon!
We absolutely appreciate you (who sent an update) for taking the time and effort! Thus far, we have been getting enough to keep us in business. (Happy Look from Shela!)

On a very personal note
I am still obsessed with the Cyclamen. We have what I am calling in my mind the Trinity. There are three gorgeous blossoms. You would think I should be satisfied but I am holding out for the return to the Angelic Host of blossoms like this pre-accidental decapitation photo.
We were at our oldest *Granddaughter’s home for Grandpa’s haircut the other day. She had the 2018 Farmer’s Almanac sitting on the table. I picked it up to take a quick gander and found an article about the Cyclamen. In that one, it said you can expect them to bloom several months a year. My unending blossom maker is more amazing than I imagined. I found a different Farmer’s Almanac article talking about the Cyclamen– I think they must like this little house plant. If it interests you click here to read more. Weimlovers–remember this plant is toxic to our beloved fur family members.
Cliff has the tractor running. He spent some time mowing at the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary today. He came in with a smile on his face but the sweat and the heat of doing this midday lead to exhaustion. He needed the break and some fluids. Beyond the tractor, he finished the Utility Bath floor tile. He still has trim work to complete.
To Cliff’s chagrin, I still have several coughing spells every day. Regardless, I slowly improve which is promising. With the cold and flu season pressing in it is vital that I get my lungs clear before I catch something else. This current health crisis started the beginning of September 2016. For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health–these are the promises we made and kept. It wasn’t always easy and most certainly in many ways, this ordeal has been worse for Cliff albeit true I wondered if I was going to live to see my 2017 birthday.
*Those of you who follow us might remember our oldest granddaughter helped us with our puppies several years back. Now she has her own family with two sweet girls. Our current helper is our second oldest grandchild. Christina, like Ashley, is doing a fabulous job helping us. We rue the day when she moves on.
