There were no coins at Starbucks on the way to school this morning, so Doc drove across the street to the Chevron gas station. He found two pennies in a planter. He was telling me about those when we spotted a penny in another planter. Then an additional three pennies there! (Coins #1-6).
We were stopped at the red light to get onto the freeway when I looked out the window of the van. Sure enough! There was a very run-over penny deeply entrenched in an asphalt crack. I longed to capture it and wondered if tools might be needed. There was no time for tools with other cars approaching. I had to jump quickly. The penny was rescued and became Coin #7 for the day.
At school I needed to deliver something across campus. The Marketplace is now closed for the summer, so no more hunting inside there. I stopped to admire this huge, old tree with its roots growing above the ground looking like a tangled plate of thick spaghetti noodles. I “centsed” there was a penny somewhere in the roots, yet did not see anything. Conversation: “Penny Angels I KNOW there is a penny here, I can feel it”. And the penny was shown to me.
I stepped back to say “thank you” to the tree for that moment. As I stepped back, I noticed a nickel behind me!
Thought: Most people talk to animals. How many people talk to plants? Why not?
Total: 9 Coins P (8), N (1), D (0), Q (0) = $0.13
