I have been accumulating a lot of tools and supplies for my online shop of handmade products and keeping them all organized has been a challenge. Last Friday, my daughter and I spent some hours at some thrift shop and a hardware store to buy some storage boxes. I also looked at the aisle of aluminum machine handles just in case I find something that I can use for my pasta machine because it’s handle is quite tough to maneuver but unfortunately, I was not able to find one. The good news is that we found some affordable and sturdy storage boxes and an organizer for my daughter’s knick-knacks. Upon coming home, we immediately sorted our respective stuff and used the storages that we bought. Now, I can easily access my beads and metals without opening all the boxes where I kept them. I used to have six small boxes for storage but now, I only have two big ones.
There is nothing more liberating than having your first car. For most people, getting a car is their first big purchase. This is why you should do your research and think very hard before deciding on what car to purchase.
Learn the Basics of Car Ownership
Before you get caught up with the details of the car model you want and what color it should be, learn about the basics of car ownership first. Ask about how you get a car registered, securing a license plate and purchasing car insurance.
Decide on a Budget
You need to be realistic on the budget you can afford. Chances are your first car will be paid by a loan you applied for. Tally that in your monthly budget. Car salesmen can be very convincing people. It is important that you stick to your budget no matter what.
Consider Your Needs and Lifestyle
When doing your research, you should know your non-negotiables. For example, you would need mini-van or an SUV because you have babies that need to be in car seats. Or you need to have a car that drives cheaper gasoline. It is easier to get the better car but remember it may not be the best car suited for your needs. You should also know the costs of maintenance and repair and factor that in with your decision.
Buying a car is very much like buying a house. It is a big deal. Careful thought and planning should be taken before deciding.

Creating music nowadays has become easier, thanks to technology. One can easily have a portable classic studio with the help of a music production software called best reason 4. Most people prefer this because it has everything that one needs – samplers, analog synths, graintable synth, vocoder, mixer, step-time drum machine, arpeggiator, compressors, EQ, and effects. It also has a load of sounds, loops and patches to make different kinds of music.
I have set my homepage to Google (or my browser chose it for me). I am too lazy to change it to other pages that I frequently visit so I let it be. Aside from that, I look forward to those special images that Google creates to honor significant events in the history of mankind. Last Thursday, Google was honored Clara Schumann’s 193rd birth anniversary. She is a famous German musician and along with her equally talented husband, Robert Schumann, they mentored and supported Johannes Brahms through giving public performance of some of his masterpieces. She greatly influenced the music scene through changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and also the music preference of the listening public. She may have lived in an era where technology was still young and things like bass amps were unheard of and yet, she made a very good contribution in the development of music, thus, making her a prominent figure.
We’re almost halfway done with the month but still let me say it now, “Hello, September!”. I specifically like new months and September, I welcome with wide open arms, especially when we had a not-so-good August. It was a very sad month when the country was devastated by a calamity and when we lost a really great public servant.
So again, “Hello, September!”. September is one of my favorite months as it is during this time that we celebrate three important occasions – the wedding anniversary of my parents, the birthday of my younger brother named Andre’ and OUR wedding anniversary. Due to the distance, we can’t celebrate with my parents and brother on their special dates but just the same, we wish them well and pray for more blessings.
We, on the other hand, have tentative plans for our big day. Initially, we wanted to celebrate with a trip abroad but unfortunately, circumstance (or negligence on the part of some public servants that resulted to delay release of our important documents) has prevented us from doing so. Now I am wondering which one is worse – having a passport sans resources to travel? Or having funds but without a passport. I think I will go for the latter. Haha! So we opt for domestic travel for now since we believe that we’ll have more anniversaries to celebrate together abroad.
September also marks the opening of the party season for a special group of friends that I belong to and our families. This Saturday, we are going to celebrate a special girl’s seventh birthday and it is a great opportunity for our kids to play with each other and for us, moms, to bond again (while the dads patiently wait). And did I mention that next month, we’ll have two more parties and by November, we’ll have our post Halloween and Christmas party plus another birthday party? Yes, we are that loaded! These ladies are the ones I usually talk with daily, never mind that we are based in different cities here in the country and abroad.
So Hello, September!
