Calling once again on the kindness that is Salt Spring. I’ve recently ejected from Ontario, having been here to visit for five short days in the fall. I immediately knew this is where I needed to be (went very quickly from want to need). Within a few hours of posting my own ad for a place I was offered a short term rental which has been so what my soul has needed. My son who moved here with me, also landed a cabin within a short while of arriving here. Unfortunately my rental is coming to an end, thus my call on your kind hearts in this new quest to find a living space.
I am a retired paediatric nurse/ victim services person, early 60’s and have owned my own homes (40 years) up until this move from Ontario. I do have one reference from my current home on Salt Spring, otherwise I have photos and a video showcasing my Ontario homes. I will care for your home as if it were my own and will share in a mutually respectful life on any property I’d be fortunate enough to be invited to live on. I also was a landlady for about ten years in one of my homes so have a sense for both landlord and tenant. I don’t smoke and don’t like to drink alcohol and am generally pretty quiet.
I have a solid best friend in a small hypoallergenic dog Kadie. She is a sweet pea, doesn’t shed, loves people, other dogs and has been raised to be zen with whatever’s happening thus she doesn’t bark to hear herself bark. Lol She has very established bathroom habits, is groomed regularily and is a joy to those who know her.
I’ll need to move on from my beautiful haven by May 15 and would consider a place anywhere from May 1st to July 1st. I almost can’t believe this of myself but I’d be quite comfortable with another short term rental (would love a long term of course). Perhaps this is the path to that freedom I crave?
I would prefer a separate bedroom, a bathtub is a must as well as quiet (have lots of writing waiting for me) but will be open to any thoughts/ offers that come forth.
Bless if you can offer any considerations,
Kim and Kadie

Why are there so few women in politics? Why is public space, whether in the street or on social media, still so hostile to women?

Our cold spring continues…with the soil too soggy to work in many gardens, especially after this recent heavy rain. If you squeeze a small handful of soil and it stays together in a compact clod, then it is too wet to handle; it should be moist but still easy to crumble apart after you squeeze […]
