I could see her laughing, even by email, and then she responded by saying that she uses her good china, and her good silver (including the gorgeous silver serving piece I gave her when we moved last year), and for good measure, she spreads as much love around as she can every single day, 'just in case'. :)
I believe her - she is just that way - I love her to pieces.
And why not treat every day and every person as 'that special'? However, I confess that, no matter what, we are not planning on pulling up ALL of our garlic babies for a gigantic green garlic fest as preparation for 'the end'. If the end is near (or here), they will go down with us and the ship, because 'just in case - in reverse', we need our crop to sell and want our own 'good eats'. In reality, we'll share the love and our garlic if we are the only ones who have any. :)
Here is how our garlic looks today - it is just gorgeous. No matter if winter returns, which it likely will, they will all survive just fine.
