2019 Weekly Synopsis


~April 13, 2019

Sunrise October 21 2017

Palm Sunday looms large with the promise of Easter on the horizon, too. Eggs, bunnies, and baby chicks are everywhere. A sign along 4th Avenue announces, “Baby Chicks are Here!”

Meanwhile, on every side, there is news of flooding. Rain has been relentless and plentiful. The groans can be heard throughout the Pacific Northwest as well as nearby Idaho. In some cases, road closures essentially make access impossible.

The wetness is excellent for the alfalfa –new and old. Both are coming along nicely. Although we are a stone’s throw from the Snake River, we are not in danger of flooding. We are looking forward to some weed cutting and cleanup. We have gotten a little ragged.


We had had some interest in a couple of the older Weimaraner pups. Typically, we do not have these (slightly older pups) available, but in this case, it seems it was meant to be–who doesn’t need their own bed-warming bed-hogging Weimaraner? Duchess (as she is now known), and her regal background, joined this family. Some might say it was too quick for Sheila to bring home a new companion. I suppose we should not judge another person–who is to say how long you should wait? What does grief look like? Duchess has huge paw prints to fill–left by Duke. Somehow, I believe he is looking down with his approval on the situation.

This Week On the Blog…

The departure of Dusty and Duke saddened us. They were much loved –Dusty was a legend in his own right. (Haha) Balancing the loss with a couple of new beginnings was good. I think you will agree.

Sunday— April 7 — Run, Dusty, Run

Monday–-April 8 — Remembering Dusty

Tuesday — April 9 — Before Dusty

Wednesday — April 10 — Spring (Mud and This)

Thursday –- April 11 —  Oregon News (Astra)

Friday — April 12 — New Lap Dog (for Mom)

On a very personal note

Our week was busy but for the most part typical. The gardening girls didn’t make it by–there was so much rain I am sure they were hoping for sunshine. I worked on the greenhouse planting and checked on the garden. It is time to repot some of our starts–maybe today.

I made it to the college on Thursday and Friday. I cannot say I had a lot of production–maybe five or six smaller items. It was an excellent little diversion. Christina and I went to the grocery and picked up some chicken and seasoning for her to try her hand at air-frying. I think she will do a fantastic job–we discussed the fact that she has never eaten a twice-baked potato. Maybe she will make some to tuck away in the freezer so that she has them handy. It is a thought.
