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!

Whether your February was filled with progression your New Year’s resolutions or other fun stuff, I’d love to hear about your month.
I’m still adjusting to working. Totally honest, it’s kicking my butt! And I don’t even work 20 hours a week. I salute all of you who work outside the home and still have a life. Here’s how I sliced February.
.2 – Pounds lost. I guess exercise really is important. I need to figure out a way to keep the exercise routine on days I work.
1 – Book read. I had a hard time getting through The Paris Wife. I’m not sure if it was the lack of time or my dislike of Ernest Hemingway. I’m happy to report I’ve already doubled that number this month.
5 – Articles written, including our SEA LIFE adventure.
5 – Projects completed.
12 – Days logging my food. I need to do that more often! It helps me so much.
32 – Countries visited this site.
47 – States visited too. Who did I miss?
258 – Words added to my book. I got a little sidetracked with …
980 – Words added to a short story I want to submit. I have 9 days to write and edit 5200 words. We’ll see how that goes.

Did February blow by as quickly for you as it did for me? What did you accomplish?
