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!

April kicked my butt; I’m relieved I survived it! I’m still struggling to get back in control this month! In some ways April was better than March.
2 – Cub Scout den meetings
2.4 – Pounds lost, and that’s the upside of stress
3 – Friends joined me for girls night out
4 – New to me wheels
6 – Projects completed
37 – Photos to Instagram
468 – Words added to my book
473 – Just Wanna Be Me page views
Some of those numbers were lower than I had hoped, but I had a few unexpected accomplishments too. Like buying a car, and all the stuff that went with that process. I hope you had a great April and May is even better for you. Share your April highlights!
The good news is I’m recapping April earlier in the month than I recapped March last month. The bad news is this is only my second post since my March recap. Without further ado, here’s how April sliced.
1 – Blog post written (yep, March’s recap)
1 – Article written. My one month off from the Homemaking Cottage, slipped into two. I did have a lot of fun with my Airman Family Book Club article though.
1.8 – Pounds lost
3 – Projects complete. At least they were big projects.
4 – Social events, from writing club, to book club to Relief Society and Pack Meeting
7 – Potential employers spoken to at a job fair
14 – Speed interview tables – you know, like speed dating, but for a job. (No, I didn’t get it.)
27 – Countries visited Easy As PIE
47 – States that visited Easy As PIE. Apparently I’m very popular in Nebraska!
76 – Words added to my book (pitiful, I know)
1112 – Page views. Thanks for your support!

Don’t be shy, tell me how your month sliced up!
April flew by in a breeze of activity. I’ve checked my focus on my word of the year – Nurture. I had to go look up which word I chose, and smiled at how appropriate that word is this year. Despite the busyness and challenges, I feel like I’m on the right path. Here’s how this month sliced!
1 – Book destroyed for our book theme party decorations.
1.2 – Pounds lost in March and another 1/4 inch in my waist!
3 – Recipes added to our Real Food for Real People blog, thanks to my daughter.
7 – Books read! I’ve been a reading machine and I already finished one in May! Court Duel was my favorite for the month.
8 – Scrapbook layouts completed
12 – Projects finished
16 – Blog posts
21 – Days logging my food, 12 were logged on the calorie counting website.
33 – Names added to my PAF (Personal Ancestral File)
590 – Page views for April
