Looking forward to living again. :)
Hello potential family.. We are be seeking some help around the house with different small projects, cleaning, gardening, yardwork, childcare, etc. now that the warm weather is here. High emphasis on helping with renovation projects, as we are both working from home.
I am also an amateur metal caster so if you wish to learn with me we can work together and make some interesting brass, copper, aluminum casts.
Our guest(s) must be a motivated yet relaxed person who can work 3-5 hours a day. Mon-Fri. Weekends are your own.
No couch surfers please.
I am a retired government employee, military and police, she is an English teacher. We are not affiliated with any organization. We live in an eighteenth century Victorian home that needs assistance in finishing projects so that we can enjoy it more. Can't wait to meet you.

Napanee is a small town and very quiet. Some local sights along the river. All manner of shopping within walking distance.
Perspective volunteers must be willing to share experiences of life and conversation. We have done this for a few years and feel that sharing our cultural experiences and values to be so very important and enlightening. Sure we all enjoy our private and quiet time but interaction is great as well.
Social drinking permitted. Smokers welcome but outside please.
Nearest airport is in Toronto. (Pearson) We would be happy to meet you in a nearby town (Belleville/Kingston) and drive you here and getting you back to a train/bus station for your departure.
