So it’s a well known fact that I do a lot of driving to get to work. Too much driving some days. I’m trying to find the shortest (distance-wise) route to my office and so far am not having much luck. I lease my car, which made sense when I drove 100 kms a week. Now I drive that in a day. So I’ll be buying my next car outright. And it will probably be a diesel. Or a standard. Or maybe even a standard diesel. I am very concerned with good gas mileage so I’ll have to look into all the options. And I don’t want to hear that diesel is bad for the environment. I know it’s not great but I also know it’s better than it used to be. And let’s face it, it’s also not so environmentally friendly to fill my gas tankup twice a week either.
But enough ranting. The best part of my drive is that it is mostly through farmland and small towns. And I see a lot of animals and have watched the fields go from empty dirt to bursting with corn and potatoes and who know what manner of deliciousness. I also see a lot of roads going who knows where. And I’m nothing if not nosey curious. I’d love to see where they lead to. But I’m on a deadline. I have to be at work on time and after work the last thing I want to do is meander home.
One day though, I’m going to take a day off work and, mileage be damned, spend the day slowly driving down the county roads and concessions I see every day but don’t get to drive down. Who knows what will be waiting for me? A farm stand? A herd of deer? A beautiful garden or an old farm house? It’s a mystery and it’s one I can’t wait to solve.
