On the Stairs

I found these a few days ago (Thursday the 16th) but forgot to write about it.

It was the end of the work day and I was going home. I walked to the GO station and was climbing the stairs to my platform (Platform 27). On these stairs, I spotted two dimes (a 2003 and a 2004).

I think I annoyed the people who showed up behind me as I started climbing the stairs: I made an abrupt stop to whip out my camera and snap a photo of my find so they had to manoeuvre their way around me.

Crazy weather day: cold, rain, hail, sun and warmth.

It's been a few days since I found something. I was tired and we had a gift card so we decided to have dinner at Jack Astors today. Yes, the restaurant can be noisy but they something for everyone. I was meeting my husband and daughter there. The Jack's near my house had a Canyon Creek beside it (maybe they all do).

When I was walking from the parking lot to the restaurant I found two dimes: 2001 and 2011.

Three days in a row

Today, I drove to Kipling GO station. It's not my usual GO station but I drove in with my husband. He takes the subway to his job and I take the train. We don't usually drive in together - only if there's a problem with one of our cars or if one of our daughters needs a car.
Anyway, when I was walking to the end of the platform, I spotted a dime (2013) resting on tar near a bench on the platform - prosperous way to start my day and third day in a row when I found something. I like it.

The last two days

You know, I can go days without finding anything and then I find stuff two days in a row.

Yesterday, I had the day off work to take my mother to a doctor's appointment and to do some errands for her. One of the stops we made was to Canadian Tire. She wanted to check out the garden centre there. She plants a vegetable garden and wanted to see how much some veges cost. While wandering around, I found a paper dime a.k.a. a Canadian Tire 10¢. It's not a coin but it does have monetary

Today, I was meeting up with friends after work, for dinner. One of my work friends and I had to go to my car first - to drop off bags and stuff before we walked to the restaurant. In the parking lot I found a 1991 penny.

FYI, we went to a place called The Queen Mother. It's on Queen Street, east of University.  Food was good, company even better. It was nice to go out, have a couple of drinks, dinner and catch up on life.

Total find: 1¢ and one Canadian Tire 10¢.

School Cents

On the sidewalk
Today, Monday, started like any other Monday - alarm rudely awoke me, lunches packed, breakfast eaten.  I was ready to leave for work when my youngest called me - said she was not feeling well, could I come and get her. And so I did.

I signed her out (even though the school day had hardly begun). On the way from the school to my car, I found two coins, mere feet apart.

The first find was a 1998 penny. I spotted it on the sidewalk, not far from a side entrance to the school.  The second find, a 1993 dime, was found partially buried in the dirt by a tree (and yes, the sickly daughter did roll her eyes when I scooped this find).
