Have you ever had a friend who just totally gets you, someone who knows you every bit as well as you know yourself?
In my life, her name is Kelly.
Today her Christmas gift to me arrived, two separate packages. Package one? A book of maps for the Camino de Santiago, which we are walking together this October. I have long wanted to make this pilgrimage (hellooooo? My blog is called Caminho, which is the Portuguese version) and I am finally going to do it with the best friend a girl could ever have.
Package two? A WORM FARM. Yes, a worm farm so I can recycle my kitchen waste into the most amazing compost in the world.
Now, when I told Husbandly One a few months ago that I wanted a worm farm, he looked me in the eye and said, "You can't really expect I'd buy that for you" because, umm, you know, it's WORMS. But Kelz? She goes right ahead and buys the damn thing for me, she is just as much of a Crunchy Granola as I am.
And Husbandly One? Well, he's not particularly happy with either Kelz or me at the moment, but he'll get over it!
