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 #1,123 - Holiday?

There was no incoming mail in our mailbox today, so I think it was a holiday. Not the case at the Penny Palace.

On the way to the Penny Palace we stopped to pick up Subway breakfast sandwiches. While Doc ordered the food, I wandered the parking lot. I collected a dime in a planter and a nickel where rainwater was running off the buildings.

At the jobsite the landscaping crew continued their work. Doc took two pictures from the Master Deck. One shows the back yard (with rocks and pathways). The other shows the front yard. Nothing there. Yet the front yard landscaping is what is required by the City for Permission to Occupy!

The flooring guys began laying the wood planks upstairs in the library. The electrical crew ran the wires from the garage subpanel to the backyard for the waterfall pumps and controllers.

This afternoon Doc and I visited a lead we had for bathroom countertops. I thought the quote I got last week was too high. The quote today was twice last week’s quote. This is not good.

We next visited an office supply store to get clear wrap materials. I want to package up some of the leftover tiles and get them into storage. I’m tired of moving them back and forth to get them out of the way.

A quick stop at Target yielded our penny for the day and an additional nickel.

Escrow was supposed to close last Friday (the 13th). The bank FINALLY submitted their papers on that day so that we could OPEN escrow. Tonight we signed additional papers for the bank and now we expect to close THIS next Friday.

Total: 4 Coins P (1), N (2), D (1), Q (0) = $0.21

What's supposed to happen in the front?

A driveway, pathway, the HOA required minimum 5 trees, slope retention planting, ROCKS, Shirlee's wagon wheel, a bench and maybe a few plants.
