  • Beschreibung


    At this time we are only accepting guests who have been vaccinated. We are full through June. I always reply to messages. It might take me up to a week, but I WILL reply.

    We are a large, extroverted family. We often have our grown children or friends over (all vaccinated except for one adult child who had Covid). Bob hosts a monthly poker night. Diana doesn't play poker. Diana regularly plays board games with an adult daughter. Our teen loves video games and anime and is very active in after school activities when not working at the local bookstore. It is not at all unusual to have one to three unexpected dinner guests. Bob smokes outside.

    We have two dogs, one cat, three egg-laying hens, and 30-40 fish in a pond. Maybe we will get more hens. We haven't decided.

    We love hosting people from all over. We like to throw parties during non-covid times. These days we host small things with our grown children, and outdoor movie nights, and small dinner parties. We have a new grandson whom we get to see almost daily. Some of us love board games and puzzles. Some of us like watching sporting events. Some of us like cooking international dishes, some of us like going to the beach. Some of us like cooking new things.

    Diana can bake almost anything, cook almost anything, sew, crochet, preserve, make jam, garden and is always trying something new. Bob can repair almost anything, build almost any wooden thing, and convert things like making the old kids play fort into a chicken coop. If there is something we cannot do, but we want to do, we learn how to do it. Please let us know if there is something you want to learn. If we don't know how, we will learn together. Do you want to learn to bake bread? Do you want to learn to make jam? Do you want to learn how to crochet? Do you want to practice English? We can do this with you.

    We have 2 acres that we want to turn into a homestead/botanical garden. Currently we have about fifteen trees that provide us with fruit or will when they are more mature. We want to transform our yard into a beautiful garden full of flowering and fruit trees and plants.

    We are looking for guests who are not afraid to jump in when they see a need. I am not a micro manager so we need people who see a messy table and just clean it, or a fire ant hill near the mailbox and take care of it without directions.
    Workaways can choose the fully furnished bedroom or a tent in the yard. Smoking is permitted outside. We were looking to host for two weeks, but now we prefer one month. We like to really get to know our guests and two weeks is not enough time.

    We can teach you to bake and cook from scratch, to care for chickens, Florida permaculture, pesticide-alternatives. I can bake almost anything. I can sew almost anything except clothes. Bob is a licensed master electrician who is very handy and can teach you somethings, but he works about 10-12 hours/6 days a week.

    Was noch ...

    We are within walking distance to the closest grocery store. A car is recommended, but definitely not necessary. We have clean, safe, and reliable public transportation, but it is not as frequent as one might see in a large city. Most bus routes run hourly, some run every half hour.

    We have farmer's markets, craft and art shows, music events, lots of shopping. We are an hour south of Tampa. We have two large state parks nearby and dozens of small parks. We have a kayak you could use at many of the water ways here. We are about 25 minutes drive from one of the most beautiful beaches in the US.

    We ask that you clean up after yourself. We are typically up early and in bed around 10:00. We don't mind what time someone goes to bed, but they must be early risers, especially during the summer when being outside gets difficult later in the day.
