I woke up.
Nigiri!Got sushi for breakfast again. They only had one kind out. It's one I was never terribly enthused about going by appearance. It's an oblong cake of rice with a large piece of raw fish laid on top. Turns out it's delicious! I especially liked the smoked/peppered tuna(?). I'll definitely get that again.
I am also of the opinion that it's easier to give a cat a pill than squirt the suspension into the back of their throat. Ours really hates that.We have to give the cat antibiotics. Usually we crush them up, mix with water, and use a syringe to shoot them down his throat. This particular antibiotic tastes so bad, it leaves him foaming and drooling. So today's plan was to coat the pill in bacon grease, pop it in his mouth, and then hold the cat until he swallowed. Worked great. He's much happier.
My girl especially hates the liquid vitamins. The pill is kind of easy, but she flips out when I squirt vitamins in her mouth. Every day she gets a little harder to catch. She's learned the routine, and makes herself scarce at medication time.I am also of the opinion that it's easier to give a cat a pill than squirt the suspension into the back of their throat. Ours really hates that.
That was the death burst of the dryad.This was Monday, but I mentioned somewhere else I cut a downed tree at work. What I didn't mention was it was maple, and the saw made a glorious rooster tail of perfect little chips. I was starting to question my ability to really get a good edge on a chain with all my cutting in gnarly old oak, but that maple cut like a dream, and it was immensely satisfying going through it with almost no effort. The only issue I had was sparks came out of the kerf on one cut, and I had to resharpen. Dunno what I hit. I was above the dirt, so maybe there was a nail or piece of fence in it. Maybe even a rock :shrugs: The rest made up for it.
