Free Pasta and coffee

Last Friday, I’ve finished noon time at work. I was supposed going to catch up with my friend after work but it was postponed and will resume later in the afternoon. I had a sudden thought to visit my other friend who just came back from the Philippines.  I ring her and ask if she’s not busy so I can go to visit her, so I did. 

It was nice to see her again, they have business and I'm surprised seeing the new look and arrangement of pasta shop. They also make some space for a new coffee shop.  It looks beautiful with shiny alloc laminate flooring, red motives of tables and chairs as well as the coffee cup.  I was impressed with the plans and dedication of my friend and her family to their business, they really business minded people.

We had a good chitchat and laughs talking about her holidays.  She offered me free pasta ravioli lunch with free coffee made by her husband plus a dessert. I was spoiled (hehehe) and I really appreciate the generosity and kindness to me.

I didn’t stay very long as customer kept coming as its peak hour of the business so I say thanks for the time and the treats. I hope, their business will be blessed and continue getting more sales and new customer especially the new coffee shop.

Leather Material

I've noticed recently some interior design of cars where different from the other. Especially when I'm comparing my car and my hubby's car. My hubby’s car is made of leather and mine are not but I think that might vary on the brand of car, its model and how it was made.

I like the material of leather it has very good quality, durable and you can easily clean if you spill something. Unless if it has a cut by accident it runs quickly and won’t take longer to be replaced or have a leather seat repair.  I wonder why my hubby always warn me to be careful of not making a mess while in the car (lol) especially when I’m eating food only and I’m really trying to be careful with it. As once or twice if I drink it spills accidentally which make a scatter mess to the floor mat and sit. Now I've learned when is the timing to drink when we are on traffic lights.

Now, I'm even more careful with my car as well knowing it's not leather seats and anytime if I spill chocolates and other sticky food it marks and won't take off easily.

Over Limit

Recently I’ve noticed I was spending over the budget limit, no savings even a dollar for half year now.   My finances are getting low for some unexpected expenses that suddenly arising. Aside from my uncontrollable shopping I did for myself  and the shopping before Christmas season comes. I've carried away talking the phone and didn’t track my phone usage so I was over billed on my monthly plan, silly me. It's ok as it doesn't happen every month. Lately I'm worried on my health condition feeling the unusual aches and pains on my body (hmm I can't deny I'm getting old) so I visit my doctor a couple of times and was given maintenance of medicine, everything just all come in one shot. 

I was very lucky to work on a supermarket that all my grocery and shopping needs are discounted as an employee price which help a lot to me in saving a few dollars.

Sometimes we really don’t know when things like this happen but of course there is a reason for that. I had learned a lesson  not to spend too much on things that aren't needed. I hope I will manage to spend less than my income and always save money for important matter especially on emergencies.
