Day 52- With Nothing To Do And Nowhere To Be

I went to bed again around midnight, I kept telling myself I should go to sleep; but then I thought for what? I'm just going to be lounging around all day trying to heal my body that what's it matter. I don't have chores to run, I am just waiting for a package from my mom, and I'll probably have to get lunch at some point-otherwise I am house quarantined, or bed ridden. This mornings breakfast was two fried eggs, home fries, bacon, 3 homemade biscuits, homemade apple butter and apples from the apple trees in the backyard, and orange juice! After eating I sat and talked with Linda and Jerry for awhile about bed and breakfasts and antiques. They said I reminded them of one of their granddaughters, they are looking to sell the house actually to get back to Arizona where their family is. Currently in bed staring at the ceiling...doing nothing makes me tired. So I wasted my time on Facebook and Instagram and made plans to meet Dexter for lunch, Hey Joe's is really annoying me with not being Blue Blaze it is again. This just happened...Dexter got the Mt. Rogers burger...see below-it's a beast! ...and gone! Engineer sat with us for awhile and he and I got a beer while Dexter digested a bit, we talked about my injury and the purple tribe. After hitting up the good 'ol ATM again I ran into Dexter talking to ManBear, seems he had noro or food poisoning and is back in town...I didn't get close. He said he was sick for like 6 hours so I am thinking it was food poisoning since noro is more intense but either way I don't want to roll that roulette wheel. Back at the B&B I touched up Dexter's nails and we are sitting on the front porch me with my leg elevated with ice-it's really hot today so it feels good. I am waiting on Engineer to paint his nail-I wonder if he will find my home. After Dexter left to go back to Woodchuck Hostel-you know when "I don't mean to be too forward" comes out of someone's mouth it's about to get awkward. I feel really bad but there's not much I know how to respond to "I think your really pretty, and you probably get that a lot on the trail." Dude, you don't mean to be forward but I saw you once on the trail for maybe a minute on Saturday, and this is our more formal meet and that's what you come up with? I get it, I'm not the best at taking compliments and I do appreciate the kind words, BUT you for sure meant to be forward with that comment. From there it turned into awkwardness as I chipped away my old polish to re-paint my nails. Engineer ended up taking off after realizing that probably wasn't the way to go about things and now I am peacefully enjoying the front porch of the Inn by myself. After that giant burger Dexter may be spending another night as well so we might meet up later for milkshakes. As for me-I've spent the last 2 hours napping on and off on the front porch, so relaxing listening to the birds chirp, and the woodpecker off in the distance. A nice siesta! I asked Linda where I could get a good milkshake and she suggested the country place but said it would be a bit of a ways, and then offered to drive me! I guess staying so long has it's perks! I appreciated it a lot since it was over across the street from pork bellies and that is a long walk from here. Driving took not even 5 minutes, it's amazing how long it takes to walk places. I offered to get Linda something but she waited in the car for me. There you have it, me walking up to the front door and sitting outside is Engineer with some others hahaha. Inside I got a moose track milkshake and a poweraide. Man is this milkshake good! I Facetimed with Hunter and she seems like she is getting better at it! She's too funny, she was giving the phone kisses and being a busy body. I got to see her crawl and stand up I miss her so much!!! I cut the call a little short when Dexter showed up to hang out with him for a bit, I'll probably try them again later for a little bit. My life on this front porch right now is the definition of living in the south; I have just been relaxing on the white wicker couch while the sun begins to fade and there were even a couple rolls of thunder! I facetimed with Hunter again in the bath, she is so funny she keeps kissing the phone and then would show me how she floats (baby swimming class to teach them if they fall in to just float on their back) I was on house duty from 7-8:30 and once Linda and Jerry returned she heated up my other half of my Philly cheesesteak for dinner and brought me an ice pack. I stayed out until dark, and then decided to take a hot bath to relax my leg muscles, get ready for bed, and now I am laying in bed with the ice pack on my shin listening to Incubus radio on Pandora. Goodnight friends!
