Last Winter, Kevin and I have noticed that the new tiled floors make the house feel cooler. We talked about getting a few runners. When we spend a good Dollar on something, I want to last it for several years. And I need to like it. In the meantime, a DiY-carpet runner has to do the job keeping us warm. Kevin ordered a French Knitter, which arrived yesterday. Last night, I started with my little project. In the photos it shows the beginning of a round carpet for the front room. It keeps me busy, while I watch TV after the girls are in bed. The pictures show the blue much lighter. But it is actually called “pool”. Today, I added “mint” as a second color. I’ll keep you updated with this knitting project.

My name is Tanja. I live in a small North Texas city within the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. I have a little house with a suburban yard, a hard working husband, who likes to have a nice cooked meal after work, three kids (24, 15, and 9 years old), two dogs, two cats, and some critters in the backyard. In 2004, I immigrated with my husband and my middle child from Germany to the United States of America. My husband was stationed as an Army Soldier in Germany from 2000 until 2004. His tour in Europe brought him also to Africa and the Middle East. We met, while I worked in a big retail store for the US Armed Forces in Germany. The rest is history. I love traveling, and visited 34 US states and Ontario, Canada so far. No worries, I still will see the other 16 states and more Canadian Territories. It’s on my bucket list. Speaking of “Bucket List”: One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Australia and New Zealand. But after all my favorite spot is sitting on a chair in my yard under a shaded tree drinking a cup of tea, while watching my kids and my pets playing together. And I like to watch the Sun setting; the Moon, the planets and the stars rising in the night sky. So here is my blog page and I invite you virtually to my little corner of planet Earth.
