Welcome to the Evrything-Evryday-Mama
Winning and losing, through failure and triumph, I will share it all as I dig deep and commit to living each moment boldly and on my terms. Single motherhood, an active non-conformist streak and an overwhelming thirst for independence have made me a Jane-of-all-trades, and I will share and show all my lessons learned. DIY: gardening, canning, landscaping, home remodeling, woodworking, freelance writing, pickleball, bowling, injury recovery, plus tiny heathen's soccer, swim, karate, track, wrestling, basketball...holy hellfire Batman this life is crazy!!! Join the crazy train that is my life and journey with me as I take on Evrything, Evryday, as a Mama.
Coconut oil is a foundation product for sustainable living at the city homestead. Heart healthy, affordable and versatile I use coconut oil to pop popcorn, cook delicious dishes and make toothpaste and soap. The city homestead is not complete without coconut oil.

Projects in progress and those on my wishlist
Grapes off the vine destined for wine and jam recipes. Finishing touches on the garage drain. Install stairs from the backyard down to the easement, and build a new couch. I am repaving the driveway and made extra sturdy bunk beds. I want to build a modern picnic table, design a water reclamation system, and make deck upgrades.
