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.

Happy July! Can you believe June is over and so is the first half of the 2013? I had to pull out my list of goals for this year and see how I’m doing. A couple are on track, the other eight not so much. Instead of stressing out over what I haven’t done, let’s see how I sliced June.
1 – Book read (Matched by Ally Condie). Yeah, that’s one of the goals I’m really behind on this year. Fortunately I
finished reading a book this morning, so I’m off to a good start for July.
2 – Book Clubs.
3 – Pounds lost! That’s all that I gained last month and a little something extra for my trouble (she says, as she types and eats).
3 – Articles written, including my latest warning you to not be deceived by those cute, furry squirrels.
4 – Father’s Day cards made.
6 – Blog posts written (bleh!)
9 – Projects completed.
10 – Training days of Hunger Games board game (that was about 5 too many).
11 – Guests to our ice cream social.
24 – Chocolate Zucchini Muffins made (yum!).
25 – Summer Bucket List activities!
50 – States visiting my blog!
55 – Countries visited my blog.
1044 – Words added to my book.
2726 – Words added to my short story. It’s not as short as it used to be!

I had a big month. How did June go for you?
In our house Italian and Mexican foods reign supreme! We have a dozen variations on pizza and tacos, including chicken burritos, fajitas, nachos, Navajo tacos, taco salad, taco turnover, Mexican pizza, taco pizza, pizza sticks, pizza pasta, and pizza monkey bread. I should have know it was only a matter of time until one of the kiddos wanted to try pizza nachos.
We made our pizza nachos by spreading a layer of tortilla chips on a cookie sheet, then drizzling jarred spaghetti sauce over them before adding slices of pepperoni and shredded mozzarella cheese on top. We broiled them for about five minutes until the cheese melted and started turning a little brown.
They tasted pretty good, but next time we’ll serve the spaghetti sauce on the side because they made the chips a little soggy. Any other suggestions for improvement?
