I am a single woman living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm in semi-retirement, downsizing and would love help in short timeframes (3 days) in fixing up my garden, organizing/cooking, sewing, Italian language, gardening and cleaning out my basement. At the beginning of May, I would like to host someone with building experience who could build (or help build) garage carriage doors. Because I need to do this work in phases, this might be good for someone who is making a quick stop in the Bay Area or is piecing together stays with a few hosts.

I live in a very dynamic (culturally and culinary-wise) area. I've lived in this area all my life and can direct the traveler to great sites which they can easily explore thanks to great local public transportation. I will also take the traveler on a dining excursion every day. I speak some Italian and would like to host an Italian woman and help her with her English or an English speaking woman.
Hi, my name is Cate. I live in a cute area of Oakland, California called Rockridge. It is right next to another great neighborhood called Temescal. I have a neurological condition that impacts my ability to walk distances and to lift things. In may, i anticipate i will need help from a builder to make carriage doors. I need help making my house/garden nice and I need help sorting through things, donating and possibly selling things. If you like to transform spaces, like to garden and are good at organization, I would like your help for 2 hours in the mornings and 2 hours in the afternoons. I estimate an hour would be out in the garden weeding and sprucing up and an hour would be boxing things up (mostly books and albums) and about 2 hours to help me with organization.

The traveler will have his/her own bedroom and share the bath with me. I will take the traveler out to breakfast or lunch every day and will provide simple, local fresh food for the other meals.
I live two blocks from our train system (bart) which is a really easy way to get to San Francisco. San Francisco is less than 30 minutes away. Since I have lived in this area all my life, I am very familiar with San Francisco and it's museums and sites. It will be easy for me to give the traveler great suggestions on where to go, based on her/his interests, in his/her free time.
