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!

Last month I blamed Christmas for my lack of post, this month I had to come with a new excuse. I’ll get to that in a minute as I slice January.
1 – New job! Yep, that’s my excuse for lack of posting and anything else that’s going undone. Thank goodness it’s only a part time job or I’d never get anything done!
2 – Projects completed. (Pathetic) Hopefully I can do better this year.
3 – Books read; all of them by Lois Lowry. I can’t wait to share my reviews of The Giver series with you.
4 – Pounds lost! Goodbye holiday weight… and then some.
8 – Articles written, including our Candymakers Family Book Club.
10 – New SMART goals for 2013.
21 – Days of logging my food. I love it when it pays off!
44 – Countries visited the blog. That’s up from last month!
1017 – Words added to my book. That’s not up from last month.
1769 – Page views. Thanks for another record breaking month!

How did your January go?
Even though the shortest month of the year was a day longer than usual, it still went by way too fast. I don’t know how I’m supposed to get everything done if the time flies by at such a high speed! I’m not ready to give up on my New Year’s goals; I may not have big changes, but I’m working on changes. Here’s my slices of February!
.2 – Pounds lost. I need another jump start, but at least I lost a little.
1 – Recipe added to Real Food for Real People.
4 – Scrapbook layouts.
7 – Names checked for accuracy and completeness on my Personal Ancestral File (PAF).
19 – Blog posts.
26 – Days of logging my food; ten of them actually were logged onto the website to calculate the number of calories.
36 – Names added to my PAF file.
37 – Mustache valentines made for family and friends.
642 – Page views.
How did you slice your February?
Did you make a few resolutions you actually want to keep this year? I did, and I’m so serious about keeping them, I called them goals. I even went as far as making a plan to actually succeed. Head over to Arizona Mama to see how I incorporated my Boy Scout training to turn my resolutions into SMART Goals!
