I´m 68 years old and live with my husband on a farm in the south. We have horses, cows, sheep and a dog. My husband does all the work in the farm and my work is designing and making products such as jewelry and ponchos from Icelandic wool, lava and glass.
We live in a beautiful rural area in the South of Iceland where there's a lot of fields, rivers, mountains and also glaciers in the distance. We have nice views from the house, especially when the weather is nice :)

Help in the house
If you know how to ride horses you can get one of mine to ride. If not, you are of course allowed to pet them.
I sometimes go to Reykjavik and you are more than welcome to join me and see the city.
I need assistance with cooking for us and cleaning inside the house. Outside work occasionally like light maintenance such as painting fences and windows. Some help with the garden would be great too. You can help me do the grocery shopping, take care of the farm dog, see how I make my jewelry and so on.
