This past weekend I parted with my city ways and got some much needed nature and lady time. 11 women, and I spent a weekend in the mountains. I have to admit I really needed more than 2 consecutive days off. With check in not until 3pm I took this as the ultimate 3 day weekend, naturally I made a stop or two, mostly based off of coffee or nature elements.
I stopped off at a cafe on the way up, naturally that one of my old customers told me has great zucchini bread, shit they aint lying I was tempted to get a loaf and eat it all weekend- but I settled on two slices and one of the most heavenly things I have ever put in my mouth for breakfast something called a Potato Bomb minus the bacon, I will be back for sure it was delicious- and naturally dark roast bottomless diner coffee, gimme! My waitress was really cute too, I noticed her sweater had the sun tarot card on it and I offered to give her a reading, in exchange for another slice of zucchini bread. Thank god she accepted cause I really liked the bread when I went on my walk after.
I chose to explore Hickory Run State Park, I have been here a few times, each time something a little different this time I chose a big boulder field that I probably should have just uh I am not sure how to say this… I should have walked cause now my car makes a weird sound when I accelerate too quickly and I have no idea why…. A shit ton of rocks and potholes. I should have known better. They certainly did not tell you that in the google map review. Thanks guys. -_-
By this time it was like 1ish and I had some time to kill so I detoured to 7 tubs, again been here done that but ah not when it was snowing it was pretty cool, and bizarre weather we have been having, including the other day when I got a warning for whatever the fuck a squal is. It was way too cold, I was yet again underdressed and in sneakers, I did have a hat but that wasn’t very beneficial when your ankles are exposed to the elements (slut).
The house itself was great. I stayed in the hot tub until I was an absolute prune, and even got to witness some snow. There were no bears, absolutely none and the lake was closed. WOMP next time I am gonna find that bear. With games, and an obscene amount of coffee I actually managed to stay up to about 10 until I went to Irish goodbye until the morning. I had some great mocktails, and even made a few shots for the ladies, it was an iced vanilla latte shot v.s. a blueberry lemonade both naturally had an obscene amount of Titos. I had a great time but I was oddly enough getting homesick whenever one of the girls went to go to call their husband, and their kids, I don't have either but it was nice to hear about them. We were all debating going to a punk show on Saturday but ya know it's hard to organize a bunch of people.
Overall it was a great weekend, I stopped off at Nellis and had myself an iced coffee and a coconut cupcake, I got gas at a semi reasonable price and hauled my ass to my cat, who seemed to have missed me something fierce. Poor thing is useless without me.
Ill see ya next week!
