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!

May was busy, but at least it was a good busy unlike April. The month was full of celebrations from a wedding to birthdays and graduations. Oh yeah and Mother’s Day was thrown in the mix for good measure.
0 – Weight lost, also the amount of weight gained – so there’s that
1 – New dishwasher!
2 – New lenses
4 – Other moms who enjoyed a Mother’s Day brunch with me
6 – Bras for $30 shipped from Zuilily
9 – Celebrations, all those birthdays and graduations – I even posted my favorite graduation speech on YouTube
13 – Projects completed, most of them were celebration related!
24 – Tables decorated for a friends wedding, which was a great way to spend time with my girls
31 – Pictures on Instagram
47 – Countries that visited the blog
178 – Words added to my book, the celebrating cut into my writing time
618 – Pageviews on Just Wanna Be Me
1640 – Squats completed in the month of May
All in all, May was a good month with many happy moments to celebrate with family and friends. I must admit, I wouldn’t mind if June was a little more lo-key.
Share your plans for June!
I’m recapping May one day earlier than last month. At this rate, !I’ll be back on schedule in a couple of months! It sounds like a good plan, or maybe it’s more like dream. Well, this post is about looking back, not predicting the future.
1.2 – Pounds gained in May. That’s totally the wrong direction. Of coarse, the day after my official reading, I was back to where I was at the beginning of April. Overall, I’m still doing good this year. But May’s hiccup was a good reminder to rein in the snacks and late night eating.
3 – Job interviews. I even got a job from one of them!
8 – Blog posts written. So much better than last month, but so far to go to where I want to be!
10 – Books behind schedule on my GoodReads goal. I did finish reading The Chronicles of Egg: New Lands. I’m hoping to post a review next week.
13 – Social events. The end of the school year, among other things, added a bunch of activities to my calendar. We had concerts, awards ceremonies and even a art show. On top of the kids activities, I went to a celebration for WordPress 10th anniversary.
16 – Projects completed. Most of them took less than an hour, but I’m feeling very productive.
29 – Countries visited my blog. Well not the whole country, but at least one person from each of the 29 countries stopped by my blog.
44 – States represented in my blog visitors.
719 – Words added to my book. I finished 70% of May’s month’s goal. If I don’t make my goal this month, I’m going to have to ground myself from Facebook or something!
911 – Page views.
The top post from May were:
Was it just me or did May swoosh by for anyone else. There was so much going on I had a harder than usual time keeping up! Here’s how it sliced!
1 – Associate Degree for me! This has been a goal I’ve worked on for over two decades (yes, I’m slow)! It is definitely a part of this year’s word – Nurture.
2 – Recipes added to Real Food for Real People; one of them was even mine!
3.2 – Pounds lost!
9 – Flavors of cheesecake sampled from The Cheesecake Factory. What an excellent girls night out!
11 – Scrapbook layouts finished.
15 – Projects complete. I’ve never met the original goal, but 15 is good for me!
16 – Blog posts.
42 – Names added to my Personal Ancestral File.
624 – Page views.
I’d love to hear how your May sliced up!
