Found Two Pennies in a Parking Lot Tonight

This evening I took a walk, a little longer than normal, but I'm so tired still that I decided maybe I need more exercise. More being the operative word since I haven't been getting hardly any lately, which can make you darned sluggish, too. 

So on my walk, I found 2 pennies in a parking space in a neighboring parking lot. Yay! I love to find money! 

Have you found any recently? I hope so. And lots!

Finally Feeling Better and I Found 17 Cents

Today I finally ventured out again, having just left the house last week to go to the doctor and a quick trip to the store. I'm recovering well from the shingles. Ugh. Can't believe I got shingles! 

Here are my articles chronicling this malady:  I Have Shingles and On the Mend from the Shingles. I'm so glad this is running its course. 

I just checked and there's this handy dandy book to understanding shingles. I would have liked to have known more about it before I became afflicted!


Today I went to the thrift store to drop off some books. I'm trying to declutter inch by inch. Seven books out the door. Yay!

Then I headed to the library where I had some books on reserve waiting for me. Then I went to the grocery store where I found four coins:

  • a penny in a change tray
  • a nickel in the change tray of a copier
  • a penny on the floor
  • a dime near a checkout lane

It had been almost a week since I'd found any money so I was tickled pink!


Denomination:  2 pennies, a nickel, a dime
Year:   pennies:  1995, 2006; nickel:  2013; dime:  1994

Found Two Pennies and What's Really Wrong With Me

Last week I went to the doctor and was told I had a sinus infection. My right eye started feeling extremely itchy later in the week and today I went back to the doctor. I have shingles. 

Ugh. I hate it! So check out the link above if you want to see my weirdo get up for keeping a blister near my eye covered so I don't scratch it.

Have you had shingles? Did you survive? I hope so, and guess so if you lived to read this. 

Oh, and I found two pennies today. One on the floor of the post office and one at the pharmacy on the floor.

Found a 1942 Mercury Dime Plus More Coins

Today I ran some errands and while out here's what I found:
  • a dime on the floor at the dollar store
  • a penny in the parking lot of the dollar store
  • a penny on the floor at the grocery store
  • a 1942 Mercury dime under the coin machine at the grocery store
  • a dime on the grocery store floor
I was so thrilled to find so many coins but especially the 1942 Mercury dime! Woo hoo! I looked it up and it appears to only be worth about $2 but that's okay. I'll keep this coin separate. I'll put in a pinch dime, sort of like a pinch hitter, in my found money jar.

Have you ever found older coins just lying around? I think they're treasures! Checkout these instant treasures:

Found Two Pennies in a Parking Lot

Today I picked up my granddaughter from school then spent the afternoon with her. It was great. She finished reading the last Harry Potter book and I read the newspaper and played on the iPad and napped a little bit.

Found a Dime in the Parking Lot

This morning I called my sister and took a little walk outside while we chatted. I found a shiny dime in the parking lot!

UPDATE:  I walked to the store this evening and found 16 cents:  3 pennies in the street, 2 pennies on the floor of the store (and I watched the woman drop them, and her little brother or whoever he was who was with her, stooped to get one and she told him to "come on"... so that's how that happens!), a penny at a gas station, and four pennies and a nickel in a parking lot. 

So that makes 26 cents that I found today.

Found a Penny in the Street This Evening

This evening I took a short walk and found a penny in the street! 

I can tell fall is on the way, even though it's topping 100ºF here most days still. For one thing, it's getting dark sooner. By 7 p.m. it's usually pretty well dark now. And it is forecast for a high in the 90s most days coming up, which is always welcome. In the 80s is even better!
