    Description

    I am a single mom with 3 sons aged 22, 20 and 18. We live in a bungalow in a small town in rural Alberta, but we are close to the city of Calgary and the Rocky Mountains. I work from home, I homeschooled my 2 youngest sons, who are now living on their own. We love to travel, I have taken my sons to India, Europe, Mexico, Guatamala, and the United States. We have a large yard and are planting a garden this year. My oldest son and myself enjoy gardening. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their travel stories. We can offer the experience of living in a small town, but we also visit my sisters in the city of Calgary where there are many tourist attractions. If time permits there may also be opportunities to visit Banff National Park and many other scenic wonders.

    I work full time so any help with the above would be greatly appreciated. It would be great to have someone who enjoys cooking to help prepare meals. Also, I have a large yard and garden so someone who also enjoys working outside would be an asset.
