2017 38th Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~September 30, 2017
Harvest continues. We are about to be naked to the north. The second cornfield is seeing action–trucks pulled in early Friday morning. The progress was slow; came to a halt. We don’t know why but later it continued. As Cliff says, he will be glad when we can have a better view. Nevertheless, I will miss the green. The sound of wind singing as it ruffles the corn. The knowing birds are hiding from us just across the road. I won’t miss the dust of harvest–a necessary part of the process. I hear them working on the cornfield again this morning. Yup–the nakedness is in the works–or as I like to say, back to Weimar Gray.
The weather has been pleasant. I overheard someone say that yesterday was the nicest weather day of the year. That might be true at least here in the Treasure Valley. We best bet enjoying and appreciating the warmer fall days. All too soon they are planning to slip away. Nevertheless, this morning we have 57 degrees.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts. We had a bit different week on the blog with me writing two posts–but it was information we wanted to share. Of course, Smokey wearing the goggles proved popular. Then too, Lu and Lucy at Priest Lake turned into something extra fun. We began with Waylon who is no longer a baby. There were a few tears, and many could relate to Waylon’s Mama.

On a very personal note
Cliff has been building a small cabinet we need for the utility bath. I have not seen it yet. He says that he is working on the two cabinet doors. I am anxious for it to arrive. In the meantime, many of you are aware that LeRoy (the large frontload washing machine) coughed and needed surgery. The amazing Cliff took him apart and fixed what was wrong–got us going in quick order. I am so very thankful that he knows how to repair things.
Our son came to help us with some of the heavy lifting associated with the washer repair. He also helped us with the storm windows. We didn’t get them perfect, but without help, it would have been impossible to vacate the spiders who had taken up residence. Isn’t it amazing how fast webs come this time of year? (Whew) Anyhow it was a quick lick and a promise of something better in the future. Who knows when? For now, they are much improved.
My health seems to improve but never get me back to something close to what you would hope for. Nonetheless, we move on and do what we can do. Oh, and we continue to enjoy the cyclamen. It is in full bloom.
