I found $0.59!

I got my tangerine SparkPeople.com t-shirt in the mail yesterday. I put it on, unlaundered, and set off on my bike ride.
Why do new T-shirts have that smell? It's only till they're laundered once, and then the smell is gone. Sometimes it's tolerable, and sometimes it makes you wanna barf. I did not barf this time.
No need to wear my reflective day-glo vest when you're biking in a bright orange Sparkpeople shirt. I caught a lot of eyes. And it matches my orange water bottle.
I didn't meet any Sparkers on my ride last night.

I once read a SP blog about a jogger who picked up pennies and coins that they found on their route. And after 2 years or so, they had found like $25.00.
So I decided I would stop and pick up coins if I saw them. So far, I'm up to $0.59, but that includes two quarters. I was pretty pleased about this small treasure. I've been on alert for something that I can use as my bike-ride-bank.
Then on Sunday, I lost a $5 bill. So it could take me 4 years to make that $5 back. Maybe I'll find bills on the road, too.

Tonight I'm going to the movies with a friend. I'm pretty sure it's not a date. So I won't vacuum the car.
Happy Tuesday, Spoobles.
