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!

There you have it, and March isn’t even over yet! How did the shortest month of the year go for you? Let me know in the comments, on Facebook, or Twitter.
December 2015 is history. As usual, I’m always a little sad to see December end after all the anticipation and build up of the season. I’m trying to get excited about Valentine’s Day so I have something new to look forward to and help motivate me to pack away the Christmas decorations. Before I get ahead of myself, let’s wrap up December.
2 – Pounds gained, overtime and extra holiday busyness aren’t good for my workout routine.
4 – Social events including a Christmas Eve brunch.
6 – Projects completed, including a bar stool overhaul.
35 – Christmas cards mailed.
36 – Photos posted on Instagram.
48 – Rolls made to take to Christmas dinner. Since there was only 7 of us eating, I have a couple dozen in my freezer.

Please share what made your Christmas magical in the comments section. I hope your New Year will be a healthy and happy one.
Christmas season is in full swing and I want to review November before it gets away completely. I can’t believe December is a third of the way over and I’m just barely wrapping up November. I have so many ideas I want to write about, now if I could just get that whole time thing under control.
1.6 – Pounds gained, I guess my boost in exercise was not enough to offset the holiday goodies.
2 – Pies made, both of them were Chocolate Mousse Praline Pecan.
2 – Books read, only one was an insurance book.
3 – Blog posts this month! It’s been way to long since this poor blog had that much attention.
5 – Social events; there was a Girls Night Out, a Blogger event that introduced my to barre (no Mom, there wasn’t any drinking involved), a studio tour that made yearn for more time to be creative, Zoolights, and of coarse Thanksgiving.
18 – Projects completed, some of them were fun and others I’m just glad to have out of the way.
23 – Photos added to Instagram.
41 – Leaves on my gratitude tree
48 – Rolls made for Thanksgiving, that and the pie is my favorite part of the dinner.
