Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

My friend at “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, wrote about a word of the year. I thought that was a cool idea, so here’s mine.
|1.||a movement toward a goal or to a further or higher stage: the progress of a student toward a degree.|
|2.||developmental activity in science, technology, etc., esp. with reference to the commercial opportunities created thereby or to the promotion of the material well-being of the public through the goods, techniques, or facilities created.|
|3.||advancement in general.|
|4.||growth or development; continuous improvement: He shows progress in his muscular coordination.|
|5.||the development of an individual or society in a direction considered more beneficial than and superior to the previous level.|
|6.||Biology. increasing differentiation and perfection in the course of ontogeny or phylogeny.|
|7.||forward or onward movement: the progress of the planets.|
|8.||the forward course of action, events, time, etc.|
|9.||an official journey or tour, as by a sovereign or dignitary.|
–verb (used without object)
|10.||to go forward or onward in space or time: The wagon train progressed through the valley. As the play progressed, the leading man grew more inaudible.|
|11.||to grow or develop, as in complexity, scope, or severity; advance: Are you progressing in your piano studies? The disease progressed slowly.|
I wanted a word that will keep focused on my mission here in life; to learn and grow. I want to remember to keep trying even when it’s hard – to carry on.
Here’s to a year of added knowledge and growth!
