A year at a glance
Sun 27 December 2015

With this facebook i notice that writing in the diary is not the first thing i do. After all: i already wrote something.....
I think i promised it before: I'm going to improve my life! And keeping the diary up to date....

A lot happend, a lot to tell.....
Again have (unfortunately) some dogs left us. It is always bad, the one worse than the other. Basically, we all miss them !! And each loss is almost unbearable though we know that we choose the best for the dogs!

Also again lost a cat, but also a horse ...

Winter!
Tue 17 February 2015

Yeah and then it was winter .....
And what a kind.
Again it started snowing late.
But this time "they" listen to our wishes and our needs for the weather (first the ditches, streams, swamps and lakes have to be frozen). This so that we can feel confident to sledge over it without getting trough it.

When finally the snow came, just after a week we got temperatures of +7.
All the snow disappeared and when it finally went freezing weather, we got an thick hard icelayer.

We are sledging with guests allready from Christmas and so far, ...

On our way to the winter
Sun 30 November 2014

In the meantime it should be winter.
Yes, we have snow. But that's all we can say. There is about 10 cm. snow, and that was it for a long time.
Well it is cold a little bit (-10), but that would also go up again this week.

The dogs we train still with the quad. Some spots under the trees in the forest are just green. So no sledge driving.
The horses we can still drive, though it is sometimes with a biting wind veeerrryy cold!

The horses. Yes we had 2, now it are 4. Corrie ...

Autumn!! Training dogs started & new work
Wed 08 October 2014

The kennel inspection has already taken place. And it was ok! We have got the prologation of our kennel- and worklicense.
Luckily the woman who was here for the license saw our input and hard work and she was impressed.

Not that we are ready now.... Another 10 kennels to go, but we will continue with this after the winter season.
But also 17 new night cabins have to be ready before winter(our own requirement).

We may say: the new kennels are top! And we are proud!

When the stress was off we had to fit some ...

Summer is over
Thu 04 September 2014

Kennels, kennels, kennels, kennels.
Our summer consisted of: kennels, kennels and more kennels.
There seems to be no end.... It started in the spring when the ground had thawed.
Because all the work we had, we only could work with the kennels in the evenings and on weekends.
Of course, many other things done, but it seems that was almost nothing compared to the kennels.
We get up with kennels, we eat with kennels, we go to bed with kennels and we dream about kennels.
That it was a lot of work no one had to tell us, but that ...

How time flies
Fri 18 July 2014

Only 4.5 weeks holiday left and the children have to go to school again.
Gosh, they are already over the half of their vacation! 5 weeks ago they said goodbye to group 2 and 7. Midsummer it was. And COLD!! 4 to 5 degrees. Not really summer.

The temperature have got to the opposite side of the thermometer. Last week we have had temperatures from over 30 degrees. Now just four days a little bit better/colder (19 to 20 degrees) and some rain. We needed it!
Where grass was brown and dry as a sort of Spanish scenes it ...

Finally summer
Fri 06 June 2014

Our summer began with a wonderful summer holiday in Cyprus in late April. We came from snow and cold (although there was already some hot dayshere) in a Mediterranean summer.
It was a long time ago, but we choose since a long time for a luxurious and relaxing holiday again.
I can say the kids enjoyed it and would love to go back!
Well I must say it pleased me very well :-)

Upon return, but it was a bit cold here! The warmth wich we had before our holiday was on vacation as well.
It took some time ...

Over en uit winter 2013/2014. Welkom lente!!
Wed 02 April 2014

Zo... Wat zal ik nou weer eens uit mijn duim zuigen :-)
Er is zoveel gebeurd (en niet gebeurd) dat ik soms even moet denken wat de moeite waard is, zodat ook mensen mijn verhalen lezen en blijven lezen....

Ik was bang dat de winter te snel voorbij zou zijn en dat ik zelf geen mogelijkheden meer zou hebben om nog te sleeen.

Nou ik heb gesleed!!! Niet zo vaak als anders met een slee-trainingsseizoen erbij, maar toch, ik heb een paar leuke touren mee gemaakt.
Had nog een laatste lange tour willen doen, maar na mijn laatste ...

De tijd vliegt...
Wed 05 March 2014

Nog maar 2 weken en dit winterseizoen is al weer voorbij....
Als we dat maar halen.
Voor morgen staat er gewoon +6 en regen op het menu!!!
Het is echt niet te geloven.... Als je dan foto's van de Iditarod voorbij ziet komen denk je: wij mogen niet klagen: we hebben sneeuw en mooie trails!

Maar als er dan nog 3 groepen gasten komen en nog 1 vol op aan de gang is krijg je, net als in het begin van het seizoen toch het zweet tussen je bilnaad....

Het is echt niet te geloven dit jaar.
Vanaf ...

De winter in volle gang
Fri 07 February 2014

Het trainingsseizoen is inmiddels al weer voorbij (gevlogen). Wel een beetje een seizoen geweest waarvan wij zeggen: dat kan beter! En dan bedoelen we het weer. Nog nooit zo'n kwakkel herfst gehad. Geen vorst en als er al vorst was dan maar een klein beetje. Heel veel regen hebben we gelukkig niet gehad, want dat is absoluut niet leuk trainen!

Maar sneeuw kregen we ook niet. En als er al sneeuw viel dan was het na een paar dagen weer weg, maar doordat de ondergrond toch koud is werd alles een ijsbaan.
Eigenlijk wel te vergelijken met onze 2e ...
