Tick season has started.


I just pulled the first tick of the season out of Odessa's fur. It struggled helplessly as I pulled it from its hunting grounds, and proceeded to squash it between the tabletop and my fingernail. Went to my medicine cabinet and got out the Frontline and applied it to the cat. Gave her canned food as a reward afterwards, even though she wasn't the most cooperative during the application process.
I was going to do it April 1st or on the first tick, whichever came first.

The ice cream van visited us today. It was supposed to be here last week.. Next time is in three weeks, after which it'll resume its 14-day schedule. My freezer is now stuffed to the brim with ice cream. ^_^
It's almost a relief that I won't be able to buy more for three weeks.

I took a walk to Rutledal today. It felt great. Got back home just before it started getting dark.
