Found 17 Cents Today While Out and About

Today I had to go to the post office so I parked across the street and trucked on over. I didn't find any money on the way or at the post office, dog gone it! But as I took the long way back to my car, here's what I found:
  • a penny in the street, actually IN the street this time, not in the gutter 
  • a dime in a parking lot 
  • the nickel between two cars as I walked to Wal-Mart

The previous two days I found 16 cents each day and that was what I had found at this point. What a coinky dink, I thought!

But then I drove to Fresh and Easy, and in the change tray was a penny waiting for me when I checked out, so today I broke the 16-cent streak. I found 17 cents.

I posed the money next to some button bouquets I made last night while watching TV. I'll probably list them in my Etsy shop one of these days.
