THOUGHTS

I am hating this month not because I am a lot busy with work, I'm thankful for this, but I am hating the nasty cold for allergy, cause in the past 5 years I took a very expensive medicine for it and this year seems that I have the same problem, so money I spent on medicine are been waste of money...I found books for my cafe's boss and also a book about vegan receipes, I cannot became completely vegan because I have a true love for cheese but some vegan recipes are delicious so sometime I can cook them, they'll arrive today or max tomorrow I already put into an envelope the total amount for those purchase...
