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!

Ready to talk turkey? I’m not! I still feels like school just started, even though we spent last night walking around the neighborhood
begging for candy trick or treating. Maybe reflecting on how I sliced October will help me come to grips that it’s over.
1 – Day at Bloggy Boot Camp.
2 – Books read. I barely finished One Thousand Gifts yesterday morning.
2 – Scrapbook layouts. To reach my goal of finishing 2011, I only have 57 layouts to do this month. Yeah, it’s not looking good.
2 – Days logging my food. I don’t know why I’m being so lazy with this!
2.2 – Pounds lost! Maybe its OK to be lazy with logging my food if I cut way back on sweets. I was so good last night and only had one piece of the kids candy.
6 – Articles written, including Flight Activities for Kids.
13 – Bat invitations made.
14 – Projects completed. Several were inspired from Bloggy Boot Camp.
15 – Blog posts.
27 – Countries represented by visiting my blog in October.
48 – States represented; Nebraska, where are you?
1105 – Page views.
2997 – Words added to my book. I’m hoping to do much better than that for NaNoWriMo!

How did your month go? I’d love to hear how you sliced up your October!
I had an amazing Saturday at Bloggy Boot Camp! After a couple of evo‘s, this was my third blog conference. Did I mention it was amazing? I took 12 pages of notes! I wish I took more pictures. (I wish that after every conference! This time I even forgot my camera; fortunately I borrowed my daughters and still didn’t take many pictures.) I have a huge list of things to learn more about and do.
Oddly enough, I’m not overwhelmed. I’m totally invigorated. Sometimes life is hard (or is that just me?). Sometimes I get overwhelmed and I don’t know which way to turn and it’s hard to listen to my heart because of all the haters. (Elizabeth Jayne Liu shared a great quote. “Don’t try to win over the haters; you’re not the jack*** whisperer” – Scott Stratten) Maybe they aren’t haters, they are just telling me what they think I should do and it leaves my head spinning.
I had time to go over my notes and start letting the conference sink in, I’m hoping that will help keep my enthusiasm going. On that note, here’s to nourishing my spirit, shaking things up and making my dreams come true!
