Northwest Arkansas has a slight chance of snow for Christmas this year. On one hand it would be nice to have a white Christmas. On the other hand, it might prevent loved ones from reaching my house on Christmas day. If only there were a way to keep the snow off the roads. If only……….
Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
This is my favorite poem and not really a Christmas poem, but still I wanted to share it with you today.
I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. Love – Starwoodgal

Four days until Christmas. I still have a couple of gifts to buy and some grocery shopping to do. I’ll also do some last minute clean up work around the house because I never think that it looks quite good enough for company. (I live with two males. They don’t get it.) But, despite all that – I’m trying to send out a little fun this Christmas. I ‘Elfed’ my little family yesterday and this is my Christmas Card to all the Something’s Burning readers. So if you need to destress – go elf yourself. Guaranteed laughs.
Merry Christmas – click here

Welcome to Starwood Gals’ Favorite Foto Friday where she uses pictures shared by family and friends to entertain the three people who read this blog. Today’s photo – little brother Rusty. Photo provided on FB by my beautiful sister-in-law, Julie – aka Rusty’s Trophy Wife. (it is okay to call her that – she calls herself that). Today I’m demonstrating my skills at matching ‘Celebrity Look-alike’ photos. Tell me if I got this all wrong.
Nope. I think that’s pretty spot-on. ‘Merry Christmas, Sh*’r was full!’
Oh – that’s Rusty on the left.
