So my granddaughter writes, she has been writing stories since she could hold a pencil. She has dozens of journals that she writes in, every time she is with me and we go to the store she gets a new one. Along with mechanical pencils, she is just like her Uncle Alex in that regard, he loved mechanical pencils.
I have never read anything she has written until now, I had told her I would love to read one of her stories when she was ready to let me read one. Yesterday she sent me the link to her google docs and gave permission for me to read them.
They are private, not anyone can read them, she had to give permission, which is fabulous for her age. There are too many ugly people on the internet for a child her age to be public.
I digress, I eagerly opened the first one and started reading, she is good, really good, she writes fiction. This is something I could never master, and I have tried. She is really good, I mean like she should be published good.
I am blown away by her talent, it is God given and I pray she continues to write her entire life. My mom would be so proud, she was a writer as well, she could write fiction, it is a talent and a gift to be able to do that, not so many people are so blessed.
May try, which is why we have books that are not so good, but that is ok, I truly believe if that is your passion and you can make a living off of it, good for you.
I am so excited for her future, I look forward to seeing where this talent takes her.
On another front, I had one of my famous accidents this week. I was sitting at my desk working away when I dropped something on the floor, I went to pick it up and like a fool, did not get out of my chair to do so, I thought to myself I can just lean over and do this. Well, as you can guess, I leaned wrong and slowly tipped the whole chair over, taking with me a side cabinet.
I wasn’t injured just happy to be working at home where no one could see me. I don’t even know what I was thinking, leaning over the arm rests was the mistake. Accident prone Angie strikes again, nothing injured but my ego, that has a nasty bruise.
On another note, yesterday I went to the ophthalmologist, for the 4th year in a row my eyesight has improved. The glasses I have now had become blurry and have been giving me headaches. It was time to have my eyes examined, so off I went.
He also said that it was time to take supplements for my eyes, he said to take Lutein + Zeaxanthin, I had never heard of this. But upon researching this supplement I found it does help strengthen eye health and staves off cataracts. He said that it was very inexpensive and he was right, even at Whole Foods it was less than $15.00. He said at Wal-Mart it is less than $10.00. I was going to WF’s on my way home so I just got it there.
If you are over 50 I do suggest you take this supplement for eye health. We can never be too careful with our eyes, seeing is very important.
That is all I have for now, it is Red River Shootout time, so Boomer Sooner! As usual any comments, questions or criticisms can be left here or sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
