Seven Snippets #1

"No Trespassing"
Photograph by Vanessa V. Kilmer © May 6, 2008

1. We are going to pick up our Valentine's Day present to ourselves today. We purchased a 32 foot trailer last Saturday. Sleeps nine. Looks brand new. We will be traveling soon.

2. My daughter (Erika in the comments) and her husband, Nate, came to visit last night and are staying for the weekend. They are pregnant so I will be a granny in September.

3. A Sparrow Hawk lives in our Dogwood tree. My photos of him have not been very clear so far. He is fast.

4. I am developing a new business. Training DVD's related to my industry. Since I have to develop training modules for our employees anyway, my boss will distribute them (he's an excellent salesman) and we will each keep a percentage. A new revenue stream for our company and a second income for me and all done while I am already working.

5. I am teaching myself PowerPoint to use with number four above.

6. I found a studio to go to paint. It is run by the founder of our county art guild and right down the street from where I work. I will treat myself to two hours of painting every Wednesday.

7. Tuesday I went to the B & N writers' group that has been in existence for ten years this year. They are self-publishing a compilation book so I will be learning how that process works out. A good lesson to learn.


  1. 1. Jealous
    2. Congratulations
    3. Try and catch a glimpse and show us
    4. Good for you
    5. Never too old to learn
    6. I wish I could do that. But hey, I can write
    7. I love writer groups. Comparing notes.

    All in all it seems that you had a really good time.

  2. Wow! Sounds like your life is rich and full and fun. Remeber to leave room for an occasional blog post now and then!

  3. It sounds like life is going well for you. I suppose we will see a picture of the grandchild when it comes and a picture of the trailer.

  4. Interesting house you got there; is the inside a lot bigger than it appears on the outside?

  5. Mal: Thanks. We excited.

    Actonbell: Many areas for blogging ideas; D

    Middle Ditch: I have a few things to keep me busy.

    Quilly: We are very blessed.

    Dr. John: Trailer this week, baby in 7 months.

    Tom: As a child, I always fantasized about living in an old beat up house.

  6. Nessa,

    painting a few hours a week

    learning a new skill on the computer
    You go girl! You and I have some common loves. Sounds like you have a lot of fun coming your way.

  7. Oh my goodness... what a lot on your plate! But all very good, positive stuff. Congratulations on being a granny soon and all the rest!

  8. Meredith: I think we do have many common interests, too.

    Brooke: Thank you.

  9. Granny Nessa! Wonderful! My second is due in May - I'm a late starter.
