I'm a city folk who packed up for my dreams & headed to the lake. Originally from Toronto, then Hamilton, and now Nanticoke. I moved full time with my dog into a winterized cottage. September 2019 I returned from the Bahamas and rescued 2 puppies from the hurricane so now there’s 4 of us. I put my blood, sweat & tears into converting the second building on the lot into an incredible & cozy Bunkie (now known as the Nook). It's a place where I keep all of my treasures I've collected throughout my lifetime - some all the way back from childhood. I believe in a work / life balance & definitely lean towards the play more work less lifestyle. That being said, I am passionate about my career as a mental health counsellor for children & youth & believe that my home life (being surrounded by nature & water, eating from my own garden & enjoying a simple life) makes me able to do my very difficult & sometimes challenging job with grace & ease. I love to read, write, bird watch, play music (piano, guitar, accordion, banjo), star gaze, fire build, garden, hike, canoe, kayak, work, cook & travel (to name a few). I love knowing that I'm exactly where I need to be. I've traveled across the globe to places including New Zealand, Costa Rica (twice), Alaska, Germany, Bermuda, Cuba, Switzerland, France, Arizona, Jamaica, Amsterdam, Panama, Hawaii, England, Alaska, Thailand, Bahamas (3 times), Punta Cana, Arizona, and the list continues. I went from social service worker to travel agent and then earned my BSW and returned to the field as a registered Social Worker. When I travel I like to experience culture & community. I'm not a sight se'er & rarely do I visit the "tourist traps" or "must sees". I'm more likely to book an Air BnB off the beaten path & walk in the opposite direction of everyone else. I collect tattoos & I'm obsessed with my wood stoves. I love learning new ways to stack and store wood. I'm an all around do it yourself-er and have taught myself how to build everything and anything, how to sew my own curtains, do my own oil changes, shingle my own roof, & install my own car stereo. Since moving to the Lake I've learnt to use & acquired so many power tools and have taught myself to build many things, including the firewood storage seen outside the Nook, a deck, the outdoor kitchen & all the raised garden beds you'll find throughout the property. I've discovered a passion for gardening and am currently growing 8 varieties of tomatoes, 3 varieties of strawberries, peppers, all sorts of herbs, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, peas, brussel sprouts, carrots, beets, and a bunch of different lettuce varieties. This year I started all my own plants from seed indoors and am working on growing a dream lavender garden. I love hosting on Air BnB because it allows me to meet people from all over, share in the thing I'm most proud of (the Nook & my property) & it gives me the opportunity to reinvest in the property by doing things like planting gardens, getting the best cuts of hardwood for fire burning, collecting treasures from garage sales & auctions, & doing my best to leave only a small imprint on the environment. I use environmentally friendly soap and body products, compost and recycle and use my outdoor shower and do it myself hot tub (a claw foot cast iron tub I heat with propane outdoors). I eat when i can from my garden and am slowly but surely learning to convert what I can to solar energy. I've recently rigged a trolling motor to a 100W solar panel which I attached to my canoe. Both my home and the Nook are heated entirely by wood. I am not connected to gas lines, municipal water or sewage. I am mindful in all I do and am proud to be caring for the environment as I go. Life is grand, & I'm forever grateful to be living our dream, serenely on the lake, one day at a time. @laurameredithricker @glampingnook
