Pan Abode in Print

One of the highlights from my summer was learning and writing about Pan Abodes, a type of log cabin. Think Lincoln Logs, the toy cabin where you can stack the logs together one by one. I was fortunate enough to boat to Sidney Island just east of Vancouver Island and given a tour of the development and an inside glance into the Caza cottage as it was being finished. Sometimes being a writer gives you inside glances to beautiful worlds, and Sidney Island was one of those worlds I could live in for a while.

Well, the article just came out and I thought I would share a few shots. The first shot was featured in Cottage magazine along with the story.

Sunday Afternoon

And that is how we roll on a Sunday afternoon. Sleeping on chairs, cat in hand.

Under the Maple Leaf

Just as Kje got most of the way home from school yesterday, it started to rain. He arrived home a bit wet but proudly clutching a large green maple leaf above his head, as if it were an umbrella. As I let him into the house:

Me: You should bring your raincoat to school.

Him: Nah, I don't want to.

Me: Well then, how about we get you an umbrella?

Him: No thanks.

Me: So you're just going to get wet then when you walk home?

Him: Nope. I'm going to use maple leaf umbrellas. They are organic and eco-friendly!

I love that! He comes home wet and happy and ready to change the world. Go Kje go!
