2019 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~February 9, 2019
The February Fickle weather (as I call it) is a thing. Yesterday, snow arrived. Well, as this kind of thing goes, I hardly think we can call this snow. It is more of a skiff which is windblown to bare spots here, and there. It is hard to believe that a couple of days ago we were running around without a coat–because it seemed like Spring. Of course, we knew it wouldn’t last forever.
We were blessed with little helpers this week. I cannot say what it means, but there is no doubt it makes our process even better. We are thankful for our Granddaughter (Ashley) who takes the time and effort to help us–and this includes her bringing the little ones along–Evangeline and River. Their cute faces and personalities light up any room. The pups adore them.
Below Evangeline holds as many as it was possible.
This Week On the Blog…
Our OwyheeStar faithful know and love Dusty–even if they never met him face-to-face. His genes run through many of the well-known lineages. We started the week honoring his 14th birthday –celebrating all he has brought to our program.
Thank you, Dusty, for being a good sport!
We want to thank Whitney for making such an effort to help us with the Blog– everyone enjoyed her update featuring Winchester in the snow. It was great to hear that Ohren made a move to Florida –and adjusted well. Pepper is off to great start, too!

On a very personal note
There has been little time for anything extra–we have the basketball games, my pottery, and the farm stuff. A lot of what we would like to do is not possible with the winter weather. Cliff has been cutting shop wood–a fire is still a must most days.
Basketball will run almost to the end of February. We try to make all the games possible–sometimes when there are two games we get to both. I won’t get as much pottery made this term. I have needed more time on the homefront–and once I made something, then I have to get back in time to trim. So, a couple of times so far it has meant missing. There are only four more weeks to work–and then this term is done. (OMG)
