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!

Happy Candy Day! I mean, Happy Halloween! Come on, who are we kidding? Today is all about dressing up to get people to give our kids candy, so we can eat it for them. That’s what good parents do – eat their kids Halloween candy to protect them from the evils of all that sugar! Right?
Besides dressing up and eating candy, we have a few other traditions at our house.
- Carve the pumpkins on Halloween. They rot quickly here in Arizona. I suggested carving them over the weekend and trying the tips to keep them longer, but the kiddos said no.
- Eat a Mummy Dinner. This year it’s dogs.
- Trick or Treat as late as we can. Apparently there weren’t too many kids around last year; we stayed out late enough that on guy gave us the rest of his candy so he could shut off the light and go to bed.
- All this work, so I can re-purpose some of it for Christmas.
We’ve done a few non-candy related things in the past.
How are you spending Halloween?
