Bloganuary – Days 24 – 29

Yes, this is a Bloganuary catchup.

As I’ve been busy with family and attending my father’s memorial service, it was necessary for blogging to take a back seat and now that I’m home, I thought I’d catch up on those missed questions.

Day 24 – How do you show love?

In the food I cook, and lovingly serve,

With all my kisses and hugs.

In my every action, and every word.

And the absence of humbugs.

Day 25 – What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?

How do I love thee? (Sonnet 43)

Elizabeth Barret Browning – 1806-1861

(Because she taught me how to love.)

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 candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the 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.

Day 26 – What language do you wish you could speak?


‘Parce que le français est la langue de l’amour’.

(Because french is the language of love.)

Day 27 – What are the pros and cons of procrastination?

I thought about doing it,

I did think hard and long.

I thought I would put it off,

But I now know I was wrong.

When I think of yesterday,

I should have done it then.

But here I sit still thinking,

Of – who, how, what, why and when.

Day 28 – Describe your perfect birthday cake.

Oh yes, that perfect cake, preferably made of (as well as made with, and covered in) delictable chocolate that’s not too rich. But the best of all is that this dreamy, heavenly, perfect birthday cake contains zero calories so one can enjoy it frequently throughout the year without gaining weight.

Day 29 – What is something you learned recently?

I can’t think of anything at this moment. No, I’m not procrastinating, but perhaps I can come back to this one later today when I planned to post my answer to Day 30’s prompt.
