House sitter in Hartford, Connecticut

With several House Sitting experiences under my belt, all in my home area, I am looking forward to opportunities further afield. I have a varied background. Grew up on a hog farm (!), went off to university, started a film and television production company in Toronto and worked for many years as a producer and television executive. Moved to the country where my husband and I raised our children and Black Angus cattle over a 25 year period. We farmed as holistically as possible, focusing on the rhythms of nature and working hard to restore our land and the wildlife thereon. For several years I was executive director for our local Habitat for Humanity affiliate and worked with my husband in our cabinet shop and healthy home building company. I am now, happily, a real estate agent - a new adventure! With our kids building lives of their own and my husband working in different locations across Canada for much of the year, I am eager for the odd week or so in a new location, either urban or rural, keeping the home fires burning and the pets or farm animals cared for. (I am very comfortable with most animals although, unfortunately, horses are not my strong point. ) I'm happy in the city centre or the deep country or pretty much anywhere in between. I would very much like to explore the area, wherever it may be, during the time I am there. And I would also like time to simply sit and read. Depending on the location, I may well drive there. We'll see. So, if you are looking for someone to mind your home while you are away, to love your pets and/or to care for your menagerie, let's talk!
