I know I have said this before, but it is an 85 mile drive from the North Rim to Kanab, Utah. We go down to Kanab about every two weeks or so to stock up on groceries and stuff. Today we went down there, primarily because I had an appointment for a pedicure. The only pictures I took were of the scenery on the trip, though, so that is what you will see today.
We had several things to do in town besides the pedicure. First stop was the Dollar store. I was looking for some baby t-shirts for a project I have in my head. They didn’t have any. Oh, well. I can wait for another day for that. Then to Houston’s Trails End Restaurant for breakfast. They have good bacon.
I went to the Ace Hardware store, where they have a quilt shop in part of the store. I wanted to get measured so that I can order my mother of the bride dress that I finally found. While I was in there, I of course I found some more fabric that I could not leave in the store.
Then I went for the most fabulous pedicure I have ever had. The girl who did the pedi took a lot of time to do it right, and I was very impressed with that. But then, when she was doing the foot massage at the end, she asked me “Do you have trouble with your hip?” and when I said I do, she asked “Is it your right hip?” Yes. She went on to ask me if I had been having trouble with my kidneys recently, and if I had had my gall bladder removed. Yes, and yes. I could not believe she could tell all that from touching my feet. Especially since I had never met her before today. She told me she has the gift of a healing touch. I am a believer because, well, I was there today. I will definitely be going back.
After a run through the grocery store, we met our friends, Marcie and Chris, at Nedra’s Mexican Restaurant for lunch. Mmmm, tacos! But the best thing about meeting them, was that Chris had made me a batch of gluten free oatmeal cookies. Delicious! I always feel so special and loved when someone takes the time and makes the effort to make things for me that I can eat. Thank you so much, Chris!
So, after a pretty full day, a truck full of goodies, we headed home. One last stop at Jacob Lake Inn for a milkshake rounded out the day. Yes, a long, long trip to get groceries, but what a fun day! And that scenery on the way? Priceless!
