2019 Weekly Synopsis


~May 11, 2019

Sunrise October 21 2017

It is summer-like in the Treasure Valley. The crops are growing quickly. They cut the hay field across the road from us a couple of days ago. I am not at all sure when our alfalfa is due for a cut–storms are brewing. Murphy’s Law seems to follow the cutting of hay with the washing of the same. (OMG)

Also, our hay fields are at different points–the newly planted alfalfa is not tall enough to cut. (OMG) So, we are not sure exactly how Chris will manage the first cutting on each field. I most certainly don’t have a clue–it is way above my pay grade (as the saying goes).


We are preparing for puppy exits again–this weekend. Cliff is meeting three families near Burns, OR today. I know they are so excited to meet their newest addition. This includes the lovely (and a bit older) Charlee.

The water line project looms large on the horizon. Cliff has things gathered and is trying to find the time to get to it. He says once he does, it should come together fairly quickly. I sincerely hope it works that way.

We are still seeing if Cliff and Snowy (SnowAngel) are going to be ready to participate in the NAVHDA Natural Ability Test –it is in a couple of weeks.

This Week On the Blog…

Thank you–for the Emailed stories as well as the updates. Every story was precious to my heart–and I am positive other folks enjoyed reading about your Weimaraner, too!

This photo of the two who passed over the rainbow bridge is a reminder on so many levels–they give us a lot. They leave a hole in our heart along with memories cherished.

On a very personal note

~The Garden and Around the Farmhouse

The gardening girls are sadly absent–but Christina volunteered to help get some of these plants in the ground. We have a lot of Zucchini plants, but we like to harvest them small –and so, we may not have all that many in reality. Anyhow–we can share. I am not able to bend down and do this type of thing–I wrenched my back. I am walking and sitting gingerly. (OMG)

Meanwhile, I have been trying to keep everything wet–inside and outside the greenhouse.

Cliff is watering, mowing, and taking care of weed control. It will be a never-ending job from here until next winter. We are in no hurry to see winter again. For now, we are set to enjoy the lovely weather as well as to watch the crops grow.
