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 #1,094 - Maintenance

Our current house has been somewhat ignored while Doc has been teaching this quarter and I have been passionate about the Penny Palace. Thus, today we did some maintenance and TLC on the Pomona house.

Of course we had normal household chores such as laundry, mail sorting, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. to do this weekend, but we also managed to do a few additional things. For instance: the baking soda package in the freezer is supposed to be changed every 3 months. The last time I changed it was November -- of 2006. Five years ago! The furnace filter is supposed to be changed every month. That one was only 4 months overdue. Doc adjusted the front door lock. Now I can actually unlock the door without having to set down everything I am carrying and then put full shoulder force on it. Nice!

At 4:30 p.m. we ventured out of the house. Our first stop was at the storage unit to fetch the three ceiling fans to be installed in the Grand Room of the Penny Palace. Next we visited our three usual grocery stores: Penny at Store #1, Penny at Store #2, 3 Pennies at Store #3. (Coins #1-5) A quick stop at the Office Supply store yielded a notebook (to set up my file on the new Rental House), one dime, and one penny. (Coins #6&7)

Tomorrow will mark three years of daily consecutive penny finding.

Total: 7 Coins P (6), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.16
