Funny encounters while driving

Wednesday is a busy day in our household. I work outside of the home 4 days a week with wednesday off. We either stay home and play, go to music class, the park, or a friends house to play. This week we stayed home and played outside even though I had so much cleaning to do inside. It will get done eventually. Then Lunch and nap. After a short nap for the little one we went into Concord to pick up our CSA veggies.

Now I must say that these are some of the best veggies I've had. I also like that it introduces me to new vegetables; like delicate squash and parsnips. I have an abundance of garlic, potatoes, and onions to store for the winter. You can also buy in bulk to can/freeze/or do whatever you do with lots of extra. We also get at least one type of greens a week.

Back to the story - on my way to get the veggies I packed everyone up; 2 dogs and 2 kids. I got coffee  for me and a Chai for Wally. On my way down the hill sitting at a stop light holding my red cup, I looked over to my right. The guy in the car just kind of smiled at me and held up his cup as well. The 2 dogs were also sitting on the front seat looking out the window right at him. He just kept looking, which was a little weird, but whatever. At the next stop light I drove past a lady with bleach blond hair and smoking a cigarette. I look over at her as I was going past. When the light turned green she hurried past me and gave me a sneer. I am not sure what the sneer was for. Was it the 2 dogs in my front seat? did I make a funny face? or was is something completely unrelated. I have learned over the years that you can't judge a person and their comments they make because you don't know what else is going on in their life. Maybe they just had a fight with their spouse/friend, maybe they found out a loved on died, maybe she was just hungry. In any case, I just smile and keep going about my business.

Hope you guys have a great rest of the weekend. Tomorrow in another busy day on the farm. Literally. We are getting the area ready for a barn. YAY!
