Never Ending Beading

I have been working and working on this LITTLE wall quilt. I think I may be over beading it...How could it still not be finished? It's been almost a week. Remember the post last week...wanted to finish this quilt AND Kellie's quilt by the end of LAST weekend. Well, as we quickly approach THIS weekend and I'm still beading this one I'm not very confident about the status of Kellie's quilt changing any time soon.

I went to Joann's to get Kellie some supplies for her "100th Day of School" project. She has to attached 100 objects (of her choice) to poster board. She's doing 100 wooden stars.

She decorated all of them with sharpie markers (with a little help from Molly) now we just have to glue them on. She's going to lay them all out when she gets home and then I will hot glue them to the poster board. While I was at Joanns I bought a huge container of gesso because I want to do some painting. I had really been hoping to have the two quilts finished by now so that I could be painting this week. Now, I'll be lucky if I can start painting next week! eeerrrrrg.

Oh, and while I was out shopping this man (about 80 years old) walks by me and says "mmm, mmm, mmm" in this sex offender voice. Aaaaaahhhhh. What was that? Is he just a pathetic old pervy freak? Is he off his meds? Was he thinking it was a complement? I really do not understand that behavior. Was he hoping for a "yeah baby! Meet me in the parking lot in 10 minutes!" Was I suppose to say thank you? What is that?! It bugged me all day. When my 16 year old came home I told him...don't ever do that to a girl/'s freaky, it's offensive, it's rude. I could go on and on. It completely wigged me out.

On another subject, Howard went to the vet to have his nails clipped so I took the opportunity to have him weighed. He's 8 months old and 111 pounds. A man asked me just how big he would get...who knows but he has about another 70 pounds to gain :o) He is the biggest, sweetest, calmest dog I have ever had. He just wants to snuggle and take walks - and eat Cheetos whenever possible. Snuggling is by far his favorite thing though...Poor Molly is trying to text with her friend.

I Love this one with Ryan. Howard is sound asleep with that bone in his mouth and snoring.

So Howard is what?? A great dane? Don't you love a dog who thinks he's a lap dog no matter the size...hehe. How do you stitch around that mammoth bundle of doggie love?
