2019 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~March 15, 2019
The mornings are frosty, but soon it warms to Spring-like sunny weather almost every day. It is delightful. Our hay guy was working in the back field. I think they plan to get that alfalfa planted in the next couple of weeks. We are ever so happy to hear the news.
It is hard to believe that St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow. Where has the time gone since it seems like yesterday we began spending bits of 2019?!? Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day tradition–we always think of the green as the color associated with the holiday. Historians say that St. Patrick’s color was blue, not green. The use of green on the holiday became common during the 1600s and 1700s, when the clover became a symbol of nationalism and wearing green on lapels became the norm.
We have been busy at OwyheeStar–just about in every way you can imagine. Cliff and Ashley laid a new puppy outdoor area with pavers and put up a nice-looking new fence. It may not be permanent fencing, but I love it. The paved area is going to be handy –and adaptable as it could be used for short term adult Weims.
Inside Christina and I have been busy with the business of puppies, cleaning, and paperwork–etc. Ashley and her two girls came to help us one day, too. I cannot say how much it means to have the help to spotlight a puppy or to spend time socializing them. Most importantly, Ansell found his forever home– he leaves Wednesday morning to begin his new life.
This Week On the Blog…
We put out a call for help with material for our blog, and a few of you came through big time. We do so appreciate you understanding our need. Of course, it is an ongoing need. (Haha) I will most likely continue to beg.
We wanted to draw your attention towards the Titer Test process– this the new option (for measuring immunity) that our Vet used for OwyheeStar’s Henri. It worked out great. Otherwise on the blog this week– there were a couple of mid-life Weims (Heidi and Lu) that made us smile. Of course, hearing about Luna was extraordinary. Every share is appreciated!

On a very personal note
One of our grandkids and a great-grandkid had a birthday this week. It didn’t work out that we could see them for their birthday, but maybe soon. Next week is Christina’s birthday. It is interesting that two of five have their birthdays that close together–and the great-granddaughter is also tucked in the March birthday bouquet.
The garden is calling–but with other things pressing in Ashley and I have not gotten to work on it just yet. It must happen soon. Mostly our focus has been on cleanup and preparation for Spring. There is plenty to keep us busy.
