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.
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 nextto 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 before4 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.
