A year ago it was freezing cold. The ferry stopped operating due to ever thickening ice. After that, we travelled by hovercraft and then in March, as the ice was strong enough, by driving on ice.
Looks like Siberia, eh?
This year is quite different. It's mild and lovely.
Today is Mardi Gras. Some eat blinis before the fast, but for most it means going out sleigh-riding – that's our traditional Mardi Gras thing. The cats don't even need sleighs.
Our trip to collect the mail yesterday was cheerful. It was sunny! And now as I'm writing the sun came out again.
Ransulla menevät vauhdissa jakaukselle häntä, kauluri, korvat ja säärikarvatkin. Vauhdikasta laskiaista!
