2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~SEPTEMBER 29, 2018
Our hay was cut a couple of days ago. We never knew what caused the delay, but in the meantime, it grew a bit more. It won’t be long, and it will be baled and stacked. We can hope the storms stay a bay while we watch and wait. We have been very fortunate, maybe that will stay true.
Between here and town, harvest continues. Beans and corn today. We like watching the process. I am not thrilled with empty gray fields. It is; however, part of the process.
We were busy with the litter exit. Little Deja had another tiny litter–three pups. They are thriving — small piglet types. So, we continue to be busy. Next week we will be working on the puppy yards–a bit of patching and repair. I think the last mowing and a bit of trimming could be in order, too.
Cliff is working on the Weim annex area–just out the back door. We started it some time ago. Ashley was here to help us clean yesterday. Now, it is ready for Cliff to finish framing, etc.
This Week on the Blog
Well, we began with a special memory of Devo’s meeting with the Black Swan. We ended on yesterday with a sweet little celebration of Deja’s three babies. With the exception of Dejah (not to be confused with our Deja), the updates were from pups who just joined their forever families.
Cliff and I are ever so grateful for the updates. It means a lot to us, and to the readers.

On a very personal note
Things are pretty much as usual. We are doing some work around the farmhouse, and the farm. Cliff has a table saw repair in process. He is moving some rocks and cleaning up on the east side of the property. The garden is still producing.
Above is the sculpture I created many many years ago when I studied with Bob Jensen. We just located it and I want to get it hung up today. It survived the move.
I have signed up at the college where I am engaged in ceramics. It is pottery 199 OG–something special for those who have experience. Thursday was the first day of working on the wheel. Lynda said it was like riding a horse–you never forget. Well, I don’t know. I think it takes a bit of knack, some instruction, and effort to center the clay. I was happy with how things worked out. Please don’t expect much. (Haha) I am ever so blessed to be working with Lynda Smith. She is a pro! Here are a few photos of our first day.
