November 2, 2010 Election Day for a working farm lady

Gerty, out of a Registered Oxford Ewe, Bonnie and BFL Ram, White Knight.  Her twin is Birdie, pictured in yesterday's blog.  I love their wool and they are BIG girls!  Doesn't she look like Teddy?  Both are out of Bonnie as well as Speckles.
Has anyone crossed Oxfords with BFLs, I would love to hear the results.

Soxs has no matters.  She is not much like her mother, Patches.

I am getting ready to download pictures and share some of my life as a farmer in Missouri.

Lady will not let a sheepy soul rest...she hugs and loves on her sheep and they just love her back...

Betty Lou getting a Lady Hug!

2 of my best friends.  Lady and Sissy.  Sissy stays by my side at all times. 

Yes, I am still mad at Whitey...rubbing on the tractor, oh how will I ever get his wool clean enough to spin and knit?
I started my day at 6:30 AM.  Praying before I leave the peace and quiet of the bedroom. 
Put on my chore clothes and go to the barn to do some chores.
I then prepare breakfast:  today it was oatmeal, hot tea, and milk.
Jump in the shower and get ready for work.
It takes me 20 minutes to get to work, I spend most of the time talking to God and today I really concentrated on the election.  I was raised in a home of a father that was a Republican and a mother that came from a Democrat family...so I try to research and look at the record of the polictians and vote for the person that I think will do the job.  But since I am just a simple human being, I am calling on God to give me wisdom and discernment to vote for the person that will do the best job.  I also ask for forgiveness, I get very angry listening to all the lies.  I am a lady that wants truth and action!
My day as a school nurse stays very busy from the time that I walk in the door until I leave after 3 PM.
I run home, get my voter's card, go to New Boston to a very small one room building and cast my votes...then hurry back home and change into chore clothes so I can help Danny fence.
I feed the hay to the sheep and give Sugar, my pet cow, a croup of sweet feed.  It is dark now so back in the house to change and clean up and prepare a light supper.
Temps are suppose to drop into the 20s tomorrow...I bring in some of my plants that I don't want to loose and put them on the back porch until I have more time to get them cleaned up before bringing them into the house.
It is almost time for bed and I still need to read my Bible and say my prayers. 
I was blessed with another beautiful day...and I hope you were too.
If you read my blog, please leave me a comment and do come back.
God Bless and Good Night


  1. I loved this post and I love your blog altogether. My husband and I just got his old family farm back after years of neglect! We are raising chickens and Icelandic sheep (because I begged and God nudged my hubby to say yes).
    Look forward to follwing your journey! Enjoy each moment and God Bless you.

  2. Hi Sandy,
    Thanks for coming. I know another gal that just moved in to her farm last year and she has iclandic sheep...they are beautiful.

    God Bless

  3. That's me! And Sandy and I have "met"!
    I enjoyed this post, Sarita. I always enjoy your posts, but this was especially thought-provoking.
    Isn't it amazing when we can see God working in our lives and when he feels close?
    Have a blessed rest-of-the-week.
    God Bless us all and God help our nation.

  4. Is Einstein a Border Terrier? I've been thining about getting one as my little rat terrier passed a few weeks ago. Having a hard time locating a breeder. I've contacted a Cairn Terrier breeder, but would like to also check out the border terrier. Do you know of any breeders around the KC area?

    I'm been on the Border Terrier Club, but can't the few local breeders to call me back as I guess they have no puppies right. Just really looking for info them and their general personality.

  5. Tammy,I don't know any breeders. I got Steiner when 2 boys were throwing him into the road and trying to run over him. He is such a smart little dog and a loveable companion. He hugs back, he loves squeak toys, he wants to be with his people and he also gets along with all the other animals on this farm.
    I hope you can find another best friend, maybe not just like your dear one that you lost but another gem to add to your life.


Thank you for stopping by. I enjoy your comments so feel free to leave one if you please.
