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 #1,382 - Getting Ready

There were so many things to do, I wasn’t sure where to start.

Chairs Bound for Upholstery Shop
Doc helped load the remaining batch of chairs into Pippy before he left for school.  I was to take this batch to the upholsterer and retrieve the other batch he promised would be completed by last Friday.

Painting Trash Boxes
At school Doc spent a few hours in the Media Studio working with a student on the Open House Video.  When he arrived home and we finally viewed it last night, it did not work on the TV, but it did play in the computer.  On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a 6 (which is a failing grade).  Ugg.

At 11 a.m. I headed out.  I had two hours to complete my errands (one hour of which was driving time).  The Pest Control Service was expected from 1-6 p.m. Again, we need to get rid of the ants in the kitchen.

In those two hours there were several stops.  I dropped off the ten chairs at the upholsterer.  The other batch of chairs had not even been started yet!  I dropped off the donation of clothes and household goods at the thrift store.   There was a shiny penny gleaming near the donation truck which I spotted before even getting out of Pippy.  As I retrieved the penny, I found a dime next  to it.  (Coins #1&2).

The printed Open House programs were ready at the print shop, so I obtained those.  They look really nice.  I stopped for 20 minutes at the Pomona house to fill the water ponds. That was the lowest I had ever see the water levels.
Pest Control Quarterly Service

I was expecting George at the Penny Palace at 4 p.m.  At 3:45 the doorbell rang. It was Son Stephen with two ice chests to loan me for the events.  That was a surprise.  At 3:47 the doorbell rang again. It was the pest control technician.  Time to talk about ant slaying.

Shortly before  4 p.m. George, Anna, and Jose arrived to hang ceiling fans and lights. The next 2.5 hours were spent with them.

Ceiling Fan Install
The rest of the evening (until 3 a.m.) was spent trying to improve the video, unpack, polish, clean, prepare, make signs, etc.    Just 4 days to go until the First Gathering.

Total:  2 Coins        P (1), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.11

A nickel in the breezeway; what a nice way to start a month. And a quarter by the secret machine.
