I am Eli, (nickname for Elisabeth). I am available to take care of your house this winter in BC or AB, Canada. I have been in BC and sometimes Oregon for about 2 years and a half, now, but would love to see more of BC, especially the Rockies area, which attract me by their beauty.
I have a lot interest for wild and medicinal plants, taking care of animals, especially dogs or horses, drawing and painting, and developing literature that I consider to be serving the purpose of living a life in accordance with what is sacred, a philosophy grounded in Reason and Virtue. I am used to living outdoors, in nature, and thrive in such environment. All I require is some Wifi to continue my online work.
I have done house sitting before, in Oregon, for a week, with 2 beautiful dogs that I really enjoyed.
I have been working in the past as a dog walker, and I also have had a dog companion myself for about 3 years. So I have good experience with dogs. I have had cats in the past, and have been around horses in my youth as well, and I would absolutely love to be around horses again.
I also have a bit of experience on some farms in Australia, through WOOFING, where I lived and worked with families and farm animals (sheep, horses, dogs, cats... and wild snakes and crocodiles!).
I have experience in living in remote places, with only solar power and generators, and wood stoves. So I know how to operate those. I have a bit of experience in mechanics and plumbing, and am quite handy and able to figure things out when needing to. I have very good communication skills and can assure you that if any problems arrise in your house or with your pets, I will let you know.
I have a good knowledge and experience with gardens and plants, and love to care for them.
Feel free to contact me for any more information!
