GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~October 5, 2019
The weather conditions–it is always a thing. The rain came, and it caught us not wanting it so much. I love a good downpour, but not so much when the alfalfa is cut and curing. We noticed that our neighbors had truckloads of onions that got caught out in the rain as well. (Shucks)
Driving between here and town, we see a lot of fieldwork–and sometimes there is an enormous dust cloud around the machinery. (Haha) Well, the rain calmed that issue. (Haha) Anyhow the fall harvest and the fieldwork continues. There are truckloads of onions here and there. Hello– first Saturday in October 2019.
Hattee’s pups continue to thrive–the weight gains are extraordinary. They are little fatties. (OMG) What else would we expect with only the four babies?
Cliff has been working on the outdoor puppy area. He made sure we have electricity to be sure we have a warm spot during cold weather–we do like to have the pups outside some in the winter. It is essential to get them acclimated to other inside conditions.
This Week On the Blog…
I am running short on blog material. If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).
As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. (Haha) We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too.

On a very personal note
Our week was somewhat a blur. I cannot say for sure why, but I know despite great effort to cling onto every moment, some got away without enough celebration.
The Garden is calling–I need to get those tomatoes picked if possible. There was a bit of frost despite the fact that they said we would not get that cold. (OMG) I will have to get out and see what things look like. I wanted to extend our garden by using plastic, but I think we are going to put the garden to bed. I still want to pot a few more things–the geraniums in particular. Of course the cyclamen is blooming profusely–hurrah!
There are pumpkins to bake and freeze, and the peppers are fermenting, but then there is my pottery. Playing in clay is excellent therapy. One that I can do while the gardening is not an option. I made a couple of wonky-type creations. We will see how they turn out.
Cliff is Cliff–helping people when he can. Fixing everything around here–and sometimes he has a considerable backlog waiting. Overall, things are going better for him, I think.
