Not Too Much

Today we started our holiday weekend a bit slowly. We went to two garden centers, but didn't buy anything. We're closer! There's just a bit more to know about bushes and trees than we thought and we've been going with Henry. We'll have to leave him somewhere when we go for real. We did have a good time at Barnes & Noble today, however. Henry played very well on the train table for a good 1/2 hour while Meg and I sat and watched. At the store I heard him say, "Elmo." I think he also said "tree" and "fish" today.

The coins I searched produced much like our garden center visits. 8,000 halves turned up just two 90% silver halves (1942, 1945), two 40% silver halves (2 x 1967) and five mint set halves (2003D, 2 x 2004D, 2005D, 2008P). I can hardly complain being that the last four weeks were great, but in comparison this did seem like a lot of work for little reward. Hopefully next week will be better.

Found: 2 pennies (at Costco), 1 dime (at Costco), 1 quarter (at Target), 1 foreign coin (a Canadian dime at Shaw's)
