2017 35th Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~September 9, 2017
The smoke and fires are the topics of conversation. The losses are unthinkable. We are not as thick with smoke as other areas. For this, we are happy. Nevertheless, the air quality is not for what we hope. Anyone with breathing issues is advised to stay inside. Nonetheless, the Haze is a bit thicker than last evening but less than we have had.
The harvest continues. Near us, the corn chopping and windrowing beans occur daily. Onions are in various stages. Some of the onions are off to the packing shed, and others are laying down and will soon be lifted and head off to storage.
Cliff has the water going on the hay field, and he continues mow lawn and cut weeds. It is a never ending job until we arrive at winter. We can afford to wait. There is still plenty of produce at the stand–fresh corn, ripe tomatoes, peaches, and more. We best enjoy while we can.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today!
We began with football this week! Not a welcome topic to all, but for many a clear signal of the season. We published Part Two of Extending Our Time. We hope you found something significant.
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. I promise to move on from this topic soon; however, it keeps grabbing my heart and soul. It speaks to me in ways I could not have imagined. I think post cancer, the common more than whispers its truth. Sometimes it screams it and rubs it into our very being. This situation speaks of life after being mown down. Can you see the similarity?
Around the farm, Cliff is busy trying to keep up with the repairs and maintenance. There has been no time to work on the farmhouse. I am engaged with the current pups we have on the ground. Our vision is toward the tasks at hand. These must be done to the best of our ability. We also have placed two adult Weims; they required a certain amount of preparation. Sage and Roxy are leaving together for the Spokane area. By no means are they finished. They will require a lot of work. Nevertheless, they leave together. We believe they will be a comfort to each other. Hopefully, they will bring healing to a family who had to say goodbye to their beloved former rescue. These are the types of things taking up our time and requiring our attention. Other things–like spider patrol have taken a back seat. On a far Eastern Oregon farm, this spider issue is a thing. This time of year
