After a cold, snowy December, January was mild.
It even got too warm for the pups to sleep in their house.
Inside the greenhouse...
Our winter garden.
The chickens are much happier now that we only have one rooster.
David and Jonathan were inspired to make Karjalan piirakoita.
Jonathan and Kalevi at the start of a 13k skijoring race. He started well...
...but ran out of gas. The temperature was above 40, and Kalevi overheated and totally bonked. He rolled in the snow and let the other dogs pass him. He was racing in the two dog race, and most of the other dogs belonged to a local musher who is a serious dogsled racer. He had three two-dog teams in the race.
