Weekend suprise

When Äiti finally stumbled out of her pit yesterday morning,she was very surprised to find Tessie-kilpikonna. She has been sleeping for about three months, and decided to wake and go for a little walk.
Harris-veli was very pleased to see his shellyback buddy. We were very surprised as the temperature dropped to -31'C overnight, so she chose the coldest night so far to wake up!
Äiti then had to go hunting for lettuce. This was not easy as her car battery went flat, which was totally unfunny in such nasty temperatures. We are hoping that this will not happen again - anything that would prevent her getting to the shops for us must not be allowed.

Well that would be a surprise!

Good to see you Tessie! Going out in the cold fur lettuce is not our Mommy's idea of a good time, either.

I did not expect to see Tessie! What a pleasant surprise.

Somebody should tell Tessie how cold it is outside. We would like to sleep for 3 months, but then we wouldn't want to not have food for all that time, or worse still, no nip!

Hello Tessie! Nice to meet you. I think I could come pretty close to sleeping for three months. Can I hide some salmon under my pillow though?

Ohh. You both look so cute. Almost like sister and brother.
