Very early this morning, Rog drove Cadence up to the airport to catch her 7 a.m. flight to Mexico. She is off on another adventure, this time to spend a year at a music school studying mariachi.
Responsible girl that she is, she spent the past few weeks wrapping up a lot of farm projects. Most importantly, she dealt with the harvest of the steers and selling the quarters of beef. She got us all caught up on using our milk, making cheeses and butter and yogurt and ice cream. She accomplished lots of garden harvesting and processing, including making a couple of big batches of pesto for freezing, and cleaning the lovely crop of garlic that has been curing in the granary.
I gave her a big, moist-eyed hug this morning and off she went. (Somebody had to stay home and milk the cow...) Rog and I are now empty-nesters again-- if you don't count 4-legged and feathered family members. Cadence, we are going to miss you SO much, not to mention your fabulous cooking and good-natured chore-doing. Have fun, learn lots, be safe and call home often!!
