I tried a new scrubbie pattern and so far, I'm lovin' it. Aren't they cute. These little beauties are a very quick pattern. I can make at least 2 an hour. What is more, they are inexpensive to produce. I picked up some nylon scrub pads at a local grocery store, 6 for a dollar. You can't beat the price and I am definitely keeping a few of these for myself.
To add to the frenzy, Joann's Fabrics and Crafts had nylon netting on sale for 40% off today and I stocked up with way more than I'll probably be able to use this year (or next) but I'm nothing if not a planner and preparer for those emergency situations where a gift must be made but all the stores are closed and I'm snowed in for at least a month . . .
As for Harley, life with Koda continues to be contentious. Not because of Harley. He has reacted in a playful, submissive manner every time Koda crosses his path. Not a single hiss or growl has passed his sweet little kitty lips. Koda, on the other hand, is convinced that Harley is a dem*n from H*ll who must be exorcised and destroyed with much loud vocal pyrotechnics and hysterical hissing. However, small progress has been made, evidenced by the fact that Koda no longer hisses at any of us who smell of kitten and she has consented to play with toys he has smeared his boyish scent all over.
I guess we must be thankful for small steps for now. In the meantime, here's a little "oooh, ahhh" photo for you all. That be Dancing Diva's arms which hath soothed the wee savage beastie into a deep and restful slumber. She has a gift with animals, that girl.
On a hockey note, the boys were handed their first loss of the season. It was a heart-breaker overtime loss . . . to EP, of all teams (no gloating, Guinifer). Hockeyman had played on a team with 3 of the players on the EP team in the off season, so it was kind of strange seeing them in the opponents colors.
We have a scrimmage against a Colorado team this afternoon and tournament play all weekend, so more hockey updates to come.
