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

I drew a line in the sand today. After 28 years of marriage, I have the divine right to pick and choose what I will or will not wash. Period.
I entered the laundry room to put away some cleaning supplies I had been using and there stood my husband. He had a handful of dirty clothes, but suspiciously rolled up. I said, “What’s that?”. “Oh, I had a blow out”, he said so innocently. “Um, and you were just going to leave it there for me to ‘find’. Not the kind of thing I want to discover hours, possibly a day later. No! Dude! Wash it yourself or throw it away. I’m not cleaning that up”, I said – trying not to gag while saying it.
He washed them. Himself. In the sink. And, then I made him scrub the sink too. Ugg! I still believe our first impressions at 5 years old was correct. Boys. Are. Gross!
