Went to a Quilt Store

Today's goal was to find a Dr. Scholl's Custom Orthotics kiosk for Hubby. I've been bugging him for years to have orthotics made, but his doctor refused to give him a referral.  Standing all day in a kitchen causes him lots of foot pain.  We had to go to Kitchener (where we always get lost).

Pretty soon we found ourselves in Waterloo - might as well go to St. Jacob's right? We had the very yummy brunch buffet at the Stone Crock.  Well worth the drive!

I remember hearing that Reichard's from Elmira had moved St. Jacob's, and decided if I saw it, I would stop in to check it out. It's not on the main street, but I turned a corner to get turned around, and there it was!  The air conditioning was fantastic!  Hubby and I just stood under the vent - ahhhh!  I have to say that I didn't like this store as much as the old one.  It's cramped, and the staff asked Hubby if he needed help...what the?????  I didn't see anything on the walls that inspired me.

On the way home (the return trip was back roads - I'd had quite enough of Kitchener-Waterloo roads for one afternoon) we listened to "Tapestry" (you can listen online) on CBC Radio, which featured an interview with Jeanette Winterson talking about her memoir "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal".  It sounded so interesting, we went directly to Chapters to pick up a copy.

I believe today is day 3 of Black Cohosh.  I think it is helping.  I slept like a LOG last night - even slept in!  I didn't get out of bed until 10:30 this morning.

Back to work in the morning.  I forgot to mention that my funding has been extended, so I have another year in Guelph. YAY!!!!  We are thrilled!
