New Year, New PeKu

It's eleven days into the new year, and shockingly I have put the correct year on every check I've written. However, in the modern economy there isn't much need for writing checks, so I've accomplished this feat a whopping three times. Regardless I'll take that as a win. Many years it's well into February before I've remembered what year it is.

So with 2016 in full swing, it seemed like a good time to share what's new for PeKu. Of course, if you're a regular reader, you've already seen the changes. We've refined (AKA reduced) our publishing to three

Wrapping, Wrapping, Wrapping

I spent this past weekend hanging out at home. My husband has been hit hard with a cold/cough/sinus illness that has left him tired. So, we spent a good amount of time watching Christmas movies, reading, and generally lounging. My one goal was to wrap all of our Christmas presents. On Sunday afternoon we assembled wrapping supplies, put on some Christmas music, and started to wrap. However, after wrapping just a few, I decided to call it quits.

I'm not sure why, but I felt uninspired, that I simply was trying to rush through the job. I'm not one

Twinkling Lights, Homemade Treats, & Some Time Off

We are a full week into December, and the holidays are in full swing, even at PeKu. Last week on Think Tasty and Holidays Helper, we highlighted Hanukkah with an assortment of craft projects, book suggestions, and delicious recipes. Next week we will be focusing on Christmas on both of those sites. Plus, at Your Parenting Info we will have great advice for handling the holidays with children of all ages. Whether your child is 16 months or 16 years, one needs to think about balancing holidays and the rest of

Gratitude- A Way of Thinking

As I prepared my thoughts for today's column, I reviewed columns from Novembers past. There was one continual theme- gratitude. Obviously, Thanksgiving brings to mind the need to be grateful for what one has. More than that, gratitude is integral to me. I make every effort to show appreciation for my team, both in public messages and private notes. Without strong team members, PeKu wouldn't be the business that it has become.

I try to extend this feeling of gratitude to all parts of my life. When I receive excellent service at a store, I make sure the

PeKu News- November 2015

November is another quiet month at PeKu. We have neither work anniversaries nor milestones to celebrate. Apparently the fall months have not been a time in which we added new members to our team.

What I did notice as I reviewed our list of start dates is the solidity of our team. More than half of our writing team has been delivering articles to our publications for over three years. In fact, one of our writers has been with us for six and a half years. Jane Wangersky joined us in February 2009, just eight months after our
