I am a native Nebraska Cornhusker, ” Herbie”, as my husband calls me. From living in Nebraska to moving to Kansas in 1990, I loved going to my grandparent’s farm in Missouri and in 2007, was able to move to my own lil place in rural Kansas. My father was a farm boy and with the USDA, and my mother had a garden every year. I have worked as a RN BSN, primarily in the home health field with high risk infants and children in their homes. And briefly as a labor and delivery nurse. My husband, who is now retired from being a conductor on the BNSF railroad, and I have been married since 2005. I have four children, girl/ boy alternating who have been my life and my desire to rear in a godly manner. I love cooking, gardening and starting my own orchard. When I don’t have enough fruit to make my jams, I glean with the promise of jam and fresh bread for an exchange. Growing roses, flowers and now creating a hummingbird/butterfly berm is my next project. But being around the herd of cattle, which is comical at times, is such a joy. Photos and stories will abound. My favorite thing to wear is a sundress, hat and barefoot, but I do have my plaid mucking boots when I am with my cattle or picking blackberries. Of course my cows know me from the red coat and my personal call to them. ( Which my husband tells me would scare them, but even the pregnant cows come running when I call!) I love the Lord with all my heart and hope to honor Him in whatever I do, say and write.
