I am blogging for the first time in 2011. I will try not to let it be that long before I blog again. I have uploaded new pictures. I am trying to sell my work to earn my travel expenses between jobs. I am now doing home and pet sitting. I go into people's homes and look after their animals whilst they are away. It means I am being useful. I am giving my life to help people.
My first house sitting job was in upstate New York. I lived in a lovely old home and looked after a cat. I loved it and picked up two references as I also volunteered at the public library.
This past year, I was in England where I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. That is the opposite of diabetes. It means my body does not make enough sugar. I have to eat right. Last July, I came back to the USA. I re-connected with one of my former residence advisors from university. I was 25 days resting in the sun and water and getting my health back. After that, I was three weeks volunteering at Fort Peck Lake in Montana. I volunteered at Mission Springs Conference Center in California. I loved it there. That was followed by twenty days in the mountains in on the border of California and Nevada, then twenty five days in Hawaii. I returned to Montana on 22 November.
I was in the Flathead Lake area where I re-connected with Jan, whom I ived next door to at university. Jan knows me better than I know myself. We spoke many times by telephone. We saw each other for the first time in years on 3 January. It was like we had never been apart. Jan suggested I try house sitting.
I am going to my second house sitting placement in Minnesota this Thursday. I will be there three weeks.
I need to raise the funds to travel between places. If you see something you like, please e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to reach me by telephone, you may call me 301 845 6045 until Thursday afternoon. I will post a message when I get to Minnesota to let you know the number to reach me there. I will accept payment by money order.
I am writing this from Hagerstown, Maryland where I was last year. I love it here. I have been volunteering here in January and February for three years.
I will try to upload pictures when I complete projects. The person where I will be going to next is going to show me how.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Love and hugs,
I am looking forward
