Hello From OwyheeStar

Sunrise October 21 2017

Our first frost arrived yesterday morning, dropping our temperature to 31 degrees–but it felt colder, damper, and like autumn’s gripe. Our tomatoes made it through the frost. I picked another bucket this afternoon. There were more that should have been plucked from the bushes, but they are left waiting. Today, it is a warmer 44-degree morning.

Our tiny stack of hay (from the last cutting) was loaded up and hauled off–we are guessing it was a little damp and not suitable for long-term storage.


We are still busy with puppy business–Henrietta’s first litter is getting ready to join their forever families at the end of this week. I am still hoping to swim pups–waiting to be sure the weather cooperates and we can get the pond filled. For fun, I posted the swim from Bernie’s litter earlier this year.

Just for fun–we have included this cute snapshot of two pups from the same litter. One is so much smaller than the other. We think it is super sweet.

This Week On the Blog…

Thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too.

It is a considerable challenge to get new (fresh) information for this blog. I even contemplated giving up–because most everyone posts their OwyheeStar Weim’s story directly. So many people write saying how important these stories are to them–often beginning their day with the new OwyheeStar News Blog. We appreciate your faithfulness. If you can help, send me a note. It would be much appreciated.

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).

On a very personal note

Cliff is working on the new pellet stove install. Of course, it didn’t go as planned–he had to cut the wall and adjust the chimney. (OMG) Does it ever go according to plan–the stove is the same brand as the one before, and the last two hooked up perfect; however, there is a design change that requires us to adjust, adapt, and revamp. (Bummer)

Zucchini flour and Zucchini Lasagna

Ambrosia has stayed busy Freeze-drying –and I expect no change anytime soon. We are learning and experimenting–we even freeze-dried raw hamburger patties. When prepared, they were excellent–better than we imagined possible. We also did potatoes, pasta, and more zucchini. The zucchini is rather sweet and very useful–I am making zucchini flour. (I know–it sounds crazy, right?!?)

A few people wrote they are getting off Facebook for the time being–all the political hoopla is causing too much stress. So, I am going to miss interacting with them, but I get it. On a very personal note, my paternal sister promised to send off her DNA this week. I am hoping and praying she could get it done–me turning up has been a bit stressful, too. Of course, she doesn’t owe me anything, and the fact that she is willing to do this is a great blessing. I am holding my breath that we get the results before the end of the year.
