Grow! Cook! Create! Survive!
The new DIY housewifery includes digging dirt, tending vegetables, dumpster diving, punk sewing projects, household fix-its, salvage construction, cooking something delicious and nutritious almost every night and raising up little ruffians who frequently overtake the entire caper.
This blog is a diary of sorts, by one woman trying to do it all, and regularly settling for good enough. The illustrious Calamity Jane can be reached at scarletfevir (at) yahoo (dot) com, she adores personal introductions from readers.

Looking for Something?
To hell with the New York Times, I’m still blushing from this review from a real, live mama!
"I was thinking you should write a book... you write so eloquently and with such passion. You’re thought-provoking, insightful, open, sincere and generous. Like a dear friend who inspires and comforts all at once. You challenge and confront. But then I thought… you have written … and it’s free for all who need it. How truly generous of you.
I still find it a strange experience to write to someone whom I do not know, but reading your posts is like a bit of soul food each day. You make the things I aspire to seem so very sensible.
With many, many thanks,
K. from Australia"
