"Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read."

I just love your snow scenes, Shelley, your photos are always so poetic and lovely,but I have to say today I am glad to look out my window and see winter grass and no snow! lol!!

As you know Shelley, we use ALOT of wood in our fireplace---ALL winter. SO--we order our supply of wood a year ahead of time--just so it will age. As your quote says, OLD WOOD is better.

Beautiful snow scene!!!!

We've certainly had a 'postcard pretty' Michigan winter so far! Your posts are lovely. Happy Holidays!

Lovely photo, reminds me of the last line of Robert Frost's poem The Wood-pile, about the ..."smokeless burning of decay"
Old wood makes the best fires, but if you wait too long, the fire goes out of it!

I have never heard that quote before, but it is so very true! My new year's wish for you is many happy moments with all four of those things!
