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!

- Yes! – My all time favorite “Y” word; as in “Yes Mom, I did an awesome job on my chores without being asked.” Can it be a favorite even if it’s not real?
- Yellow Submarine – While I like the song as much as the next guy, it probably doesn’t qualify as a favorite since I don’t own a copy. Marian Allen has the cutest Lego video of it.
These little beauties showed up in my RSS feed today. There both food related – go figure.
- Your Homebased Mom has another tempting recipe with her Malted Milk Ball Cookies.
- If you’d prefer a healthy recipe, New Nostalgia says her kids fight over these Roasted Sweet Potato Coins.
These last few letters of the A to Z Challenge are going to be tough, I’m curious to see what the other participants pull together. Hopefully I’m not the only cheater using words like extreme.
I want to use today’s post to counter how overwhelmed I’ve been feeling, and focus on my blessings.
- I’m extremely blessed to have a wonderful family.
- I’m extremely blessed to have the gospel in my life.
- I’m extremely blessed to be healthy.
- I’m extremely blessed to have my temporal needs met.
- I’m extremely blessed for my education and life experiences.
- I’m blessed my garden is growing.
These are my basics (except for the garden – that’s a new one for me), and the list goes on and on. Sometimes life is hard, but the hard stuff seems less overwhelming when I focus on the good stuff. Share what’s blessing your life today.
