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.

Day #929 - Stone, Stucco, Sweat

Today was extremely hot and muggy. About the only thing we wanted to do was to find a cool spot and take a nap. Of course that was not an option. The only for sure thing today was heat and sweat.

Around 10 a.m. this morning we finally signed off on the window order. Yipee! After weeks of refinements, we finally shaved off enough things to meet the budget.

We headed out to the jobsite. Stopped for some frozen juice bars (popsicles) to take to the framing crew. Found one dime while doing that. (Coin #1)

Once again the guys were working on the rafter tales and eaves. There seems to be so much more to do yet on the framing.


We headed to Calimesa to investigate a stucco company. Doc just had to stop at a Jack-in-the-box. We drove until he finally found one. As we walked in, there was a penny on the floor in front of me. (Coin #2). While Doc approached the counter and ordered food, I noticed a break in traffic at the drive thru window. I ran for it. Emerged with 2 pennies and a quarter (Coins #3-5). As we were eating, Doc spied what he thought was a coin outside. Sure enough, when we were leaving, he collected his dime. (Coin #6)

From 2-4 pm we were at the stucco company. The owner just happened to be in the office and I have four pages of notes from information he shared with us. Doc and I are learning so many new things every day. Never a dull moment.

Next we visited a building supply center which several people told us we simply must see. They were correct. I will need to go back and spend several days there. (Disneyland for a home builder). All I could do today was walk around and get an idea of the products they carry. So many options for stone, architectural details, fountains, plants, and more. Decisions, decisions…

Total: 6 Coins P (3), N (0), D (2), Q (1) = $0.48
