HOW DO I LOVE THEE? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Laurie Justus and Terry Pace 1966 Summer

Laurie Justus and Terry Pace 1966 Summer

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height 
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight 
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. 
I love thee to the level of every day's 
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. 
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; 
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. 
I love with a passion put to use 
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. 
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose 
With my lost saints, -- I love thee with the breath, 
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose, 
I shall but love thee better after death.

So today Lady L and I are preparing a Valentine's Celebration.   We are going to combine it with her mother's birthday and do a Surprise Party. Nope, my daughter does not read my blog. She is lucky to sleep and eat right now with Lady M being only two weeks old.  So on the menu is Steak, baked potatoes, salad, fresh squash and for dessert Nothin' Bundt Cakes... Her mother's favorite.  I know Steak is Stacey's favorite food as that is what I ate eight hours before she got here. So later in the week I will post some pictures if I have time to take them.

Meanwhile... I got up this morning to an empty box of chocolates.  Not sure where they went. Have my ideas. I think Terry, aka Bampa... and Lady L hit them last night while they were cutting out decorations for the party.  I doubt Paddy ate them. He would be pretty ill if he did.  Past Valentine's Day we buy ONE medium small box of chocolates to share.  Someone owes me a few Chocolates. Think we will head to Godiva this week. Those are my favorites. One good piece of Godiva is worth this entire box of Chocolates from Target. Call this one the Empty Heart Waiting for Godiva.

 

Happy Valentine's Day.
