For today, we are expressing thanks for what we have, in intentional effort to keep the balance in giving and receiving. We are waiting on some home-made bread dough to rise, and we are really "so eh-cited" about both the maple popcorn we intend to make and the trip we will be taking to the fishing store to buy some worms for our compost.
