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 did you accomplish last year? Did you meet your goals?
June flew by; it felt like the month was only 9 days long. I love sleeping in and less taxiing kids around. Now if I can figure out how to spend my time playing with them and still get my work done! Here’s how we sliced the month.
0 – Pounds gained or lost. I did so good last month, but this month I didn’t do good at logging my food. Our trip to Flagstaff set me back too.
1 – Tricycle race at Pack Meeting. (Two if you count my impromptu challenge to the other Cub Scout leaders.)
6 – Books finished, including the first two Ranger’s Apprentice books.
14 – Blog posts. I have so many things planned, hopefully this month I’ll be able to share them with you.
15 – Scrapbook layouts finished. That sounds like so many, but I’m going to have to pick up the pace to finish last year’s pictures by the end of November – or change that goal!
16 – Projects finished; there was a lot of reading, some Scout stuff and even a little cleaning.
37 – Names added to my Personal Ancestral File. It’s going to be hard to ever finish if I keep adding four for every one name I verify!
565 – Page Views.
How did you do with June? Are you pleased with how your month sliced up?
Was it just me or did May swoosh by for anyone else. There was so much going on I had a harder than usual time keeping up! Here’s how it sliced!
1 – Associate Degree for me! This has been a goal I’ve worked on for over two decades (yes, I’m slow)! It is definitely a part of this year’s word – Nurture.
2 – Recipes added to Real Food for Real People; one of them was even mine!
3.2 – Pounds lost!
9 – Flavors of cheesecake sampled from The Cheesecake Factory. What an excellent girls night out!
11 – Scrapbook layouts finished.
15 – Projects complete. I’ve never met the original goal, but 15 is good for me!
16 – Blog posts.
42 – Names added to my Personal Ancestral File.
624 – Page views.
I’d love to hear how your May sliced up!
