Sailor BabO Canada at the Cottage

Sailor BabO Canada is at his friends’ cottage this weekend.  He had to get up very early to get a ride with them, but at least he wasn’t forgotten at home for this trip!  Because of the early start, though, he slept most of the morning while Laurie took photos of some of the birds and beasties around the place.

For the bunny lovers:


This hummingbird was nice enough to sit still for her picture to be taken.

Some duckaluckalings (tm Crankypants).

Finally, after it started raining, and Laurie’s friend Doris started baking cookies, Sailor Babo got up, of course!

These are spice cookies with chocolate chips in them.  Oh, and homemade cinnamon ice cream on the side.

Then, after dinner, there was more cinnamon ice cream, and a different kind of cookie on the side.  Sailor Babo is convinced this is the Cookie Cottage.  Also, he now wants to marry Doris.

    What a darling bunny! And hummingbird and duckaluckalucklings! (I missed cranky’s use of that word).
    The cookies and ice cream look great. Nothing like a weekend at a Cookie Cottage! 😀

    I offer $10 for a picture of Sailor Babo riding that bunny. You can pick Canadian or U.S. currency.

  4. Ogodogodogod! Homemade cinnamon ice cream! Now I wish I hadn’t gotten rid of the old ice cream maker we had. (Even though you had to break your arms cranking the stuff, just for one pint of ice cream.)

    I also miss seeing cottontail rabbits in the garden. We have jackrabbits out here, and they aren’t very friendly.

    I have an electric ice cream maker that Ashlee left here when she moved out. I need to get that out and make some ice cream with the strawberries in my garden. MMMMMMMM.

      The NYT had a recipe for Sweet Corn Ice Cream last week. Not your ordinary creamed corn.
      Strawbs are my BFB. (Best Forever Berry)! One summer I made fresh cherry ice cream!

        We go to a restaurant in town The Holly Hotel. Every spring they have a morel mushroom dinner, six or seven courses with morels in each one. And in the fall they have a sweetcorn dinner. Sweet corn in every course. SO darned good. I need to get on their website and find out when it IS!!!!

    Aww that little bun looks like he could use a dried banana chip or two or three! What an idyllic place. Is it a getaway cottage or a year round resdence?

    • Laurie says:

      My friends come up here every weekend all year, and it’s where they’re eventually going to reture to. It’s a true second home, no sense of roughing it at all. (Hence internet access, and electric ice cream maker.)
