The biggest challenge we face these days is keeping order in a house that frankly has none. Likely never will. Our life is caught in a chuckhold. I really don’t know who is the alpha dog lately because so many are vying for the spot, namely Merlin and Tucker. I certainly know I have not achieved alpha status, except when I am feeding the critters.
On top of that, the weather is warming up. I can see the drier aspects of our mediterranean climate taking hold. The dust is kicking in a bit more and the first blush of Spring bloom is diminishing, making way for what I predict will be a warm summer. The agapanthus is blooming however and that makes me happy.
