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?
Labor day traditionally marks the end of summer, but here in Arizona most of our kids have been back to school for weeks and the heat will stretch out for weeks more. Regardless, August was a good month so let’s recap how it sliced.
2 – Recipes on our Real Food for Real People blog. I actually posted one of them this time.
3.0 – Pounds lost! I already met my goal for the year.
5 – Books read. I finished Where the Heart Is the night of the 31st, but I still made it!
8 – Article posted, including our Princess Academy Family Book Club.
9 – Days logging my food. I’m surprised I did so well on my weight loss goals; it must have been the reduction in my treat intake.
15 – Projects completed. It felt like a very productive month.
25 – Blog posts. Now that’s more like it!
1091 – Page views. Thanks to you, I have a new record!
1597 – Words written during WOW, ANWA‘s Week Of Writing. I exceeded my goal and I’m very happy with my progress as long as I don’t think about how a few people did twice as many in one day!
Share your August successes. It so much more fun when we cheer each other on!
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 – Book destroyed for our book theme party decorations.
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.
8 – Scrapbook layouts completed
12 – Projects finished
16 – Blog posts
21 – Days logging my food, 12 were logged on the calorie counting website.
