We use a mix of wood that we buy from a local man and some wood we buy. We like buying Duraflame logs for our smaller fires because they last a lot longer than our regular wood. One or two Duraflame logs can last all day. These are perfect for me because I do not have to drag in heavy, dirty logs from the wood pile out back. I like having that option. I let hubby do the dirty work.
Let me tell you that on those cold winter days, I start a fire and grab a good book and relax. There is nothing better than curling up on the sofa and reading a book. Part of the Duraflame campaign is to remind people the importance of reading. I received Duraflame products and Dr. Seuss's The Lorax to help me spread the word about the importance of making reading a daily habit.
I have to admit that I don't read as much as I used to. With work, blogging and life, I rarely have the time. And, I hate to admit, that social media has now replaced my reading time. But every once in a while, I love to pick up a book and read. It is an important part of my life that I never ever want to let go. My mom used to read to me every night when I was little and I think that fostered my love of books.
So I thank Duraflame for reminding me to take some time out and build a fire and curl up and read a good book. It is something I never want to forget to do. I even read The Lorax the other day and it was as good as the first time I read it decades ago! I do love Dr. Seuss even at my age!
