Found a Penny in the Parking Lot

Tonight when I opened the door to take out the bags of trash and recycling, I noticed the sky was looking lovely . So, I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pictures. I love an orange sky!

I spotted this penny in the parking lot next to a truck. It was almost dark so glad I spotted it! I just finished editing a book today and plan to veg the rest of the evening.

Found a Penny at the Post Office

Today I had to run to the post office. I went to the little annex in the gift shop because I can get in and out there 9 times out of 10. Today was a quick one. But when I walked up to the window, I spotted a penny on the floor. Yay!

Found a Penny Outside the Casino

Today I met my son and his family and rode with them to Tucson for a birthday celebration. We met in Scottsdale at a casino where I left my car. I had a little time to kill so went inside the casino before they arrived. I found this penny by a trash can outside the main entrance.

Then I went inside and lost some money. A win/lose situation. Oh well. I didn't lose much. The outside of the casino has these pretty waterfalls out front.

The birthday party was lots of fun, but I'm exhausted!

Found a Penny and Water Puzzle Piece

Today I took out the trash and found this penny in the parking lot. When I came back in the house to take a picture of it, I noticed this water drop in the sink that looks like a puzzle piece. Cool, huh?

Found Two Pennies in the Parking Lot

Today I've ventured out several times since it's cooler. Ah. Not extremely pleasant since it's been raining lately and it's humid (for Arizona) so it feels sticky. But the cooler temperature (my computer said 76 awhile ago but it's back up to 81 now) is a nice break from the 100+ temperatures we've been having.

So, I cleaned the litter box today. Not just scooping, but the nasty job of actually changing the litter and cleaning the thing. So I had to take the trash out. I had to, if you know what I mean.

After depositing the bag in the dumpster, I walked around a little and in the parking lot, I spotted these two pennies! 

And check out the fancy hangers I found today! I'll be listing them in my Etsy shop soon. Aren't they something!? I'd never seen anything quite like them before.

Is it cooler where you are? Getting any rain? Found any money?

Found a Dime in the Rocks at Fry's

Yesterday I went to watch two of my grandkids. My granddaughter made thank you notes for her birthday gifts so I posed my found money next to the thank you card. It's hard to tell what the money is, isn't it?

On the way to their house, I stopped at the library and Fry's. All I found at the library were books and movies, but that's okay. At Fry's I found groceries, but on the way out, in one of those areas with rocks that separate the driving lane from the row of parking spaces in the parking lot, I spotted this dime! It was just as dirty and brown as the rocks so was really surprised I saw it. 

What about you? Have you found any money recently?

This evening I drove over to Fresh and Easy to get a few things. When I was checking out, I spotted a penny on the floor in front of the self-checkout register. Woo hoo!

Took Out the Trash, Found Four Pennies

I'd been inside all day working on a book I'm copy editing. I rewarded myself by taking a break to take out the trash just now. Woo hoo, I know how to live!

After I dumped the bag of trash in the dumpster, I walked around the parking lot looking for coins. I spotted one penny then in another spot next to a truck I found the other three. Yay!

I propped them up with some gummy bears. Then I ate the bears. I don't care that the coins are dirty. As my mom used to say, "You've got to eat a peck of dirt before you die."

How about you? Have you found any money lately? Eaten any dirt?

Coins in the Change Tray at Fry's

Today I ran to Fry's (Kroger's) for a few things (yes, three grocery stores in two days). When I was checking out, I spotted this money in the change tray. 

Someone must not have wanted it or forgot it or something. I really don't understand that. Oh well, I'll give it a good home in my found money jar, which is just about completely full.

Happy 4th of July!
