Experience description:

Over the past few months I have been finding random dimes in unusual places.  The coin I find is always a dime and it is always only one.  There is never any other coins around it and it is usually in a very odd place. 

The first one I found I immediately thought it was my grandmother trying to contact me.  I have no idea why I thought this but I thought it was her.  I have found them, cooking, once under an egg in a newly opened egg carton while my husband was cooking me an omelet.  My grandmother always wanted me to cook for my husband but I was too lazy and he would end up doing it for me.  I've found over 10 randomly placed dimes.  Once I was crying over my grandmother and really missing her (I was actually on vacation and sitting in a hotel sauna alone) I looked down at my toe and there was a dime.  I have been found them while rollerblading, in her home (three on one visit), under my father's chair at a restaurant and others.  There is no significance that I know of why they are dimes, but I am certain it is her.
