We all drove to Knoxville for a lunch at Panera and while the boys went over to Best Buy for radio shopping, Donna and I went to JoAnn's to use our 60% coupon on one regularly priced fabric. I was hoping I could get the fabric I liked for my chair covers. However, it was a trick. Most everything was on sale (including my fabric choice), but because it was 50% off, most people would buy it. It was a ploy to get you in the store, and then think that 50% was still a good deal. Bummer.
But I did find some fabric for the bathroom window. It was also on sale, and when I told the cashier that we had driven all the way to Knoxville for this coupon, he gave it to me on a button purchase. Anyhow, this is what became of my fabric:
Gary and Ron put the new radio into Bella's dashboard and now we can play our iPods while going down the road without two speakers and a converter lying on the floor. Yay.
Yesterday we needed to get out of the city, so headed to Cades Cove for a drive. The first wildlife we saw were some turkeys:
We made a stop along the way and played on the river bank.
We stopped at the Visitor's Center and walked around the old mill.
Took some flower pictures:
And this, our favorite photo of the day:
Now the bathroom is done, and I'm onto the headboard. But first we have to work this Labor Day weekend. Gary checked in a bunch of people today, and I cooked sausages all day. Whew. I wish it would cool off a bit. It's still in the 90s here. But fall is just around the corner!
