In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.
This morning I had arranged to work
with Maribel around the house. Doc
went to Starbucks (Doc #1) and then attempted to turn in the TV box from the
Pomona house. After 30 minutes of
standing in line, his name had not even made it on the display screen for
customers to be serviced, so he left there frustrated. He grabbed a fried chicken lunch and
headed to Cal Poly Pomona to clean out
some emails - about 400 of them.
Maribel and I made some good
progress; she on house cleaning and me
on putting things away. This
morning the Penny Palace also received it’s first quarterly pest control
service. The best part was that
Trevor cleaned out all the
cobwebs under the eaves. We are
trying to keep the house looking nice.
As soon as Maribel left I headed
out to turn in batteries for recycling, make a deposit at the bank, then meet
mom at the dentist. Today was
mom’s deep cleaning session before
tomorrow’s oral surgery. While she
was in the dental chair, I went outside.
Two dirt pennies there in a planter. (Coins 1&2)
Upon leaving school, Doc stopped at
a convenience store for a soda.
He found a penny on the floor there. Then a second penny right next to his van as he was backing
away. Sit-N-Find. (Doc #2&3)
I met Doc at 4 p.m. and we ran a
few errands. Went back to the
store to turn in that TV box.
After 30 minutes one guy recognized that Doc had been there earlier
today and let us take a short cut in line. J
We ran errands for a few more
hours, then I came home with hopes of cleaning up and logging in the past 21 days of penny finds.
Sure grateful all my Stuff is at
least somewhere here in this chaos.
This evening in writing a Thank You note, I needed a notecard (one box),
paper cutter (another box), scrapbooking pens (carry case), adhesive corners
(travel case), and decorative scissors (hanging near Doc’s TV in family room). It took an hour to pull together a
simple card, but it was good to be able to find everything here close at
hand. Glad we cleaned out my Pomona office.
This is why I needed to retire - so
I can do Full-time Cleaning!
