2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~NOVEMBER 10, 2018
I am not sure what the official low temperature for Ontario and the surrounding area registered at yesterday, but our thermometer read 15 degrees. We are ever so thankful to find our low temp much higher than the Burns reading–which last I heard was hovering around zero. This type of coldness is what I expect for January. I think if someone had their tomatoes covered it was not enough. (OMG) Thankfully it is warming up again. We are in no hurry to find ourselves in single-digit cold winter-like weather.
Despite the colder temperature, farming continues. Our back hayfield is in the process of being plowed for the spring plant. We hoped to get it planted this fall. It was not possible. Anyhow, they pulled in yesterday. We were glad to see them. We are positive the local farmers want to finish up the field work and to put away their equipment. They are ready for a well-deserved break.
We are busy with the stuff of puppies. Nevertheless, we have found ourselves scrambling a bit to prepare for these colder temperatures. Winterization is always a thing. Cliff has made some changes at the shop where he stores paint and chemicals that must be kept above freezing. There is that kind of thing, plus the adjustment to watering the Weims, etc.
This Week on the Blog
Once again, I find myself ever so thankful for folks who took the time and effort to update us–especially with a story as well as a photo. Did you notice Jeanne’s creations? If not, check out the Zeus and More link below. She can make any breed or put words, names, or whatever sentiment you are looking to get on a sign for you. Her price is very reasonable. Check it out! We want to support our Weimaraner folks, right?
Cliff and Stackhouse got out to hunt and collect a couple of birds along with all too many cockleburrs. (OMG) It had been a while since I had the joy of picking them out of a Weim. Bella made her first trip to Brookings–I am so envious. I love the Oregon Coast–the beach experience. Loki and Moxie delighted us with their fun news. It was all such a blessing to share. Thanks again!

On a very personal note
Cliff has been busy keeping the Weims tended as well as making a few small repairs. I suppose the big news of the week was that we both had had our annual wellness with our Primary Physician. We have received a phone call about the blood work results. Overall they were good–Cliff’s white cell count is up, but it has been. Nonetheless, it is nowhere near where treatment would be required. We are very thankful for that news. I anxiously await the full results so I can compare numbers. I am like that. (Haha)
You might have read the Facebook comments on the Boise State -Fresno game that took place late last night. If not, I will make a quick comment here. It was a spectacular win for the Broncos–despite being down their long-distance threat and three excellent defenders. If this game is any indication, I see some of these current players will be making it to the NFL. It was an outstanding effort for the younger players to step up and bring home the win. Stackhouse did his usual Boise State Mojo-thing. It was a late night, but a lot of fun.
