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!

What’s a windlass? Even after looking at the picture in the book, it took me a while to figure out reasons why I’d want to make one with my kiddos. The reasons I came up with was mainly we could build something together. A windlass is a small scale well, without the water. Parental supervision and assistance is a must!
Overall it was a fun project. It’s interesting to turn the crank (made from a paperclip and attached to a pencil) and watch the thread wind around the pencil bringing the cup up to the top. I like my cup to hold a few M&M’s to reward me for all that cranking!
