2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~OCTOBER 13, 2018
October frost arrived. We got our first yesterday, but it was a light one. Cliff says the prediction is for temperatures close to freezing or even another frost between now and Monday. Then, it is supposed to warm up a bit.
The area farmers have been busy with the harvest. Onions and other crops have been stripped from the fields. There is a little corn here and there, but the after harvest bareness is setting in. Our hay awaits the raking and the baler.

On a very personal note
Cliff and I went to the Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) today. He has a blood draw, and so now we wait for the results. Of course, we hope for this whole thing mysteriously disappear, and if not to stay in a holding pattern.
I have been busy with the pottery project. It is not something I can do production style. I marvel at what I see Lynda and Charlotte make in one afternoon. I am much slower but is nothing short of a miracle that I can come up with anything at all. (Haha) Otherwise, we have been doing pretty much the same thing as usual–the sorting, organization, and clearing out of things we no longer need or want. I feel as if there is a sea of material goods–deciding what is essential to keep is tricky.
Every time Ashley arrives I have another box or something to give her. I have another pair of new-looking jeans from Grandpa. He has lost a few pounds and doesn’t plan to gain it back. I found a box of handbags–those are gone as well. They were all leather bags and again, in excellent condition. Christina took one that seemed to have her name written on it. That is a win-win situation.
Maybe next week I can give you a report on Cliff’s lab work. I hope. Other all, he is busy around the farm. There is quite a bit of non-farming tractor work such as moving dirt. He is trying to get rid of rocks–we don’t need a Weimar swallowing one of those rounds. It can happen all too quickly. We don’t care to revisit that scenario.
Our little farmhouse is still a work in progress. We love it nonetheless!
