Oh look, who shows up in our yard every morning! It’s Randy, the Red-bellied Woodpecker. He gets very curious, when the Blue Jays visit for picking up some peanuts from the slinky. Randy flies in our Bradford Pear tree, looks around, sees food on the plate, has a snack and disappears until the next day. Then he comes back for a morning visit, gets a snack and gone he is again. I’ve noticed this for about the last eight to ten days, now. This morning, he said Hello in this 28°F (-2°C) weather. Being in the sun, and the harsh wind is gone, the temperatures are actually not that bad. Randy and his friends, the Blue Jays, seem to enjoy it.

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.
