Good morning! Another gorgeous day here in Minnesota and I am excited to get out in it! 😀 This past seven days have been a whirlwind of activity and if you have been around at all this past week you have heard some of this but I thought for Alyce’s Saturday Snapshot I would give you a peek into my “Seven Days Of Past” so you can see why I have not popped into blogs or had much of an online presence….
Last Thursday – Saturday evening I went to our cabin up North with my friend Heidi.
Then I went to The Minnesota State Fair Grounds on Sunday and met my college son Justin and a few friends and we participated in the color run.
Then I came home and we had a family get together to hang out with Brad, Navy son who was going back to the Navy.
On Monday, we rescued and adopted an abused puppy…. meet Mater, 18 weeks old, part Basset Hound and part Beagle.
Tuesday I was in an 12 hour meeting… no kidding, 9:30 am – 9:30 pm.
Wednesday I worked, had a meeting, and it was my anniversary!
Thursday – first day I have had nothing in the evening in over a week….. hung out at home with the pups. 😀
Friday garage sales, lawn mowing, an open house, and finally at 8 pm…. home.
Today – I need to do some shopping for tomorrows picnic for 300, help out at IHN tonight (working with the homeless)
Sunday – church picnic and tear down of IHN and move to the next church. I hope to be completely done with all tasks and commitments by 3 pm.
And that…. Sunday afternoon, will end my craziness for a while *whew* 😀
For other fun pictures and happenings, be sure to go check out Alyce’s Saturday Snapshots post. Always a good time!

I’m exhausted reading about it. How could anyone abuse sweet little Mater?
It exhausts me too Kathy 😀 No one will abuse Mater anymore!
WOW!!!!>>What A Week!!!!>>God Sheila GO!!!>>Have A Fun Saturday!!!
Thanks Don! It has been insane…. I keep trying to plan for the next thing….
Oh wow, that was a full week! The Minnesota State Fair! I was there many years ago 🙂
It was fun to see then use it this time of year. I have not been there for years and forgot all it has to offer.
Gosh, busy, busy, busy! And what a lovely puppy, so glad you rescued him.
I am too Margaret, he is a handful but i think he is going to be a good dog.
Congrats on the new puppy. So cute!! It looks like you had a fun time lately.
I have but I am ready to be done running. Its been a pretty heavy – and fun – schedule 🙂
Whew! I can’t believe that you are not still in bed recovering from the busyness!
Not yet Nise – still trying to get things done 🙂
A 16-day cleanse sounds really difficult to stick to – no wonder you enjoyed your food and drink after that! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/ha45K
It was suppose to be 21 days but a cabin weekend called it off 🙂 I am going to start again on Monday using most of the cleanse except for weekends when we have plans.
wow. a whirlwind of a wonderful life.
Very good photo selection. I like the idea of the color run.
Thanks, I do love to try new things 😀
Such a nice array of photos. Love your little addition.
Thanks Diane 😀
that was a heck of a week. love your cabin 🙂
I love it too…. I go back next week and I cant wait!
have a wonderful time 🙂
Whew, quite a busy time! Great photos–love that adorable dog! You can really see the basset and the beagle in his face. 🙂
I have never had a dog like that before Cheryl so this is a new experience for me 🙂
That color run looks like a lot of fun!
It was! 😀
looks like you had a wonderful time, and that color fun looks like it was a blast! Great pictures, thank you for sharing- Book Savvy Babe
It was a lot of fun 😀
Great shots! What a fun week you had, rewards and all.
I just Skyped with my Berlin son for an hour and fifteen minutes! That was great….
Thanks for visiting my Saturday Snapshot post.
Sure Laurel – loved your pics and ow fun you chatted with your son!
What a great week you’ve had! Mater is so very cute!
Here’s my Snapshot.
Thanks Bev…. I am almost through the week…. tomorrow later afternoon! 😀
It looks like you had so much fun! And that burger looks incredible!
After not having meat for 16 days it was incredible Alyce! 😀
I envy you — mmm…… that crazy-normous hamburger there! Wow — it looks delish.
And Mater…. Mater is SO CUTE!
These are great pictures, all of them. What a full, vibrant, exciting seven days!
IIt has been an active week… looking forward to a quieter one coming up this week and then a weekend of biking on the North Shore.
I would love to know more about the color run. Didn’t you breath in that colored powder while you were running? That drink looks scrumptious. It tempts me to go make a concoction of my own. You’ll feel so satisfied when the week is over, knowing you accomplished so much. Here’s Mine
Paulita, if you Google Color Run you can see it is all over the states. I did at one point, I think at the very end get some in my throat… it like chalk powder… it just made me very thirsty. It was a hot day, 91 when we started running.
Mater! I love beagles! That looks like a great trip.
Thanks Lisa – he is an adjustment but I think we will survive 😀
If it was not for bloggers I would never get to see the world. Thanks for taking me on you travels. My hubby is retired navy so If your son goes for the long haul I doubt he will be disappointed.
Thats what I am hoping for Rita, eight now he doesnt like it much – I am hoping something changes over the next year to make him change his mind 😀
Wow, what a week! How do you manage it all? Your photos are great and I especially like the one of your beautiful family! (I see you’re surrounded by all males like I am!) And your doggies are adorable too! I hope you get to relax a little this week. 🙂
LOL…. yup all boys…. and three dogs now – also all male. *sigh*
I googled the color run and found out we had one here in Chicago… and I didn’t even know about it! It would have been fun to watch. Enjoy your Sunday afternoon.
Thanks Leslie… it is something new that I just discovered as well 😀
Mater is so adorable, I’m glad he’s found a loving home. The colour run looks fun, well fun for a run.
Right – I wouldnt run just to run but if you throw paint at me or send Zombies after me (The Zombie Run) I will do that 😀
Love the photos, glad you got to spend time with your sons, that’s always special. The colour run looks like a hoot and Mater looks so adorable. So nice he’ll be getting lots of love now. We adopted our little Bella from the RSPCA when she was 13 weeks, the poor wee darling had been abused but she’s now 2 and a much loved member of our family, hopefully we’ve made up for her traumatic start 🙂
Welcome home Sheree! 😀 I cant wait for him to mellow a bit – he is a barker…. GAH…. but yeah, he has had no home and training 🙂
Those puppies are so cute!
They are busy 🙂 Actually Sam (the colorful one) is really mellow… Mater, is a hand full.
The color run looks so fun!
It was Lisa!
The color run looks like so much fun!! And Mater…he is so ADORABLE! *dies of cute*
Thanks Gail, he is a busy – but fun addition to the family 😉
