Found a Dime at Trader Joe's

Today I had to run some errands. Actually, I only had to run one:  Mail some things at the post office. Last week I'd gone to this same post office and spotted what looked like a nickel (it was round and shiny and silver) under the counter. It was right in front of the middle clerk station, but I didn't go to that postal clerk and didn't really think I should butt the customer there out of the way. So, I left it and wondered if anyone would find it. As of today, no one had!

So, today only one clerk was on duty; she was to the left of the "nickel." She called me up, I mailed my packages, then on the way out I slid this thing out from under the counter. Guess what it was? No, it wasn't a nickel after all. It was one of those round, flat batteries. Dang. No wonder no one had snagged it!

Off I went to Trader Joe's. I didn't really need anything, but I wanted a bottle of 3 Buck Chuck. So I grabbed a bottle and some Trader Joe's coffee and headed up to pay. On the floor near the register I spotted this dime! Yay!

I made the two little kitties, who are posing by the dime, from a pattern in this book, Microcrafts: Tiny Treasures to Make and Share.

What are you all doing for Memorial Day? I'm staying home, writing some articles, and watching movies. Hope we all spot some money though whatever we do!
