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!

April flew by in a breeze of activity. I’ve checked my focus on my word of the year – Nurture. I had to go look up which word I chose, and smiled at how appropriate that word is this year. Despite the busyness and challenges, I feel like I’m on the right path. Here’s how this month sliced!

1.2 – Pounds lost in March and another 1/4 inch in my waist!
3 – Recipes added to our Real Food for Real People blog, thanks to my daughter.
7 – Books read! I’ve been a reading machine and I already finished one in May! Court Duel was my favorite for the month.

September’s gone and the holiday season is officially beginning around here. We pulled the Halloween decorations out of the closet yesterday. Hopefully we’ll get them up today. My house will be be decorated from now until January. Before I embrace the October, I’ll sum up the month past.
