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!

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?
We brainstormed a little for a summer bucket list – I’m sure it’s around here somewhere. Our stay at home summer camp continues to morph as the kiddos get older. Even summer school is changing as we moved completely away from the Summer Bridge books and set up our own ‘curriculum’. What we have now are summer goals that include some learning and some fun; I shared l the details over at Arizona Mama. Please stop by and let me know how you make the most out of summer.
2012 is one twelfth over! How did your year start off? I have ups and downs, but I’ve mostly stayed on track. Here’s how my January was sliced.
1 book read, but I’m in the middle of four others. Hopefully next month will look better.
1.8 pounds lost! Logging my food and drinking lots of water has helped make progress on this goal.
2 recipes added to Real Food for Real People. That’s twice as many as last month, which sounds much better than two.
12 challenge projects completed.
19 blog posts written.
29 days recording my food. Only 16 of them made it on the website that calculates the number of calories, but even that is better than my goal of two times per week.
56 names added to my PAF file.
64 fortune cookies for our Chinese New Year Pack Meeting.
