#1571: Making the most of how things are

I've been hoping to record you another Tiny Adventure podcast for a few days now, but haven't felt up to walking up the hill to visit the Big Oak and so, rather than keep waiting for the energy to arrive, this morning I decided to record you the podcast I felt able to rather than the one I had hope to... Join me to say good morning to the chickens, the visiting robin, some blue tits, some brave sparrows (and a slug!). Everything feels very alive in my garden this morning and I'm very glad I decided to record a podcast to share that with you.

#1569: The sixth Tiny Adventure podcast of 2020: Not quite the podcast I'd intended

Technology, the weather and my energy haven’t been my friends as I recorded this podcast. I had intended to start the podcast under the Big Oak (which I did) and then walk home with you down the hill after I’d sat for a while with my picnic breakfast. I had a lovely walk home, stopping to pick blackberries along the way and chatting to you all the while, only to discover when I got home that the walk had only been recorded intermittently. I thought I would head back up the hill another day this week and have another go at recording the second half of the podcast, but my energy hasn’t been up to it and the weather has been far less inviting than it was when I recorded the first half, so that didn’t happen. In the end, I decided this morning to record my early morning trip out to say good morning to the chickens and my friend the visiting robin. Not quite the podcast that I intended, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless :)

#1568: The fifth Tiny Adventure Podcast of 2020: Checking up on the Big Oak

After the second of two very stormy days this week, I woke up to find myself worrying about the Big Oak and so decided to make myself a flask of spicy chai and headed off to make sure that it was okay…

I’ve been missing The Big Oak, and today, the first day in a little while that it hasn’t felt that I’ve needed to spend in bed, I’ve made myself a flask of tea and am heading up the hill for a visit…

#1565: The second Tiny Adventure Podcast of 2020: Spicy chai, lichen and how old I think The Big Oak could be

Today, you find me in kitchen preparing for my second Tiny Adventure of the year. As you know, gathering provisions feels like an important part of a Tiny Adventure and this morning I’m making something that I don’t think I’ve made since last summer’s adventures. A flask of spicy chai. Once the tea is in my flask (and I’ve made a peanut butter sandwich to accompany it!), I feel ready to embark on my second visit to The Big Oak. Listen in to hear the results of my calculations estimating the age of the tree :)

#1564: The first Tiny Adventure Podcast of 2020: Visiting an oak tree

For a few years now, August has traditionally been my Tiny Adventure month. In it I usually record a set of podcasts in which I embark a series of Tiny Adventures and encourage you to do the same. This year I wasn’t sure I would be able to manage any Tiny Adventures, so I’m so pleased and excited to be sharing with you an unexpected adventure that may just be the prelude to a (scaled-back and slight different than usual) series. This morning I’m off to visit a large oak tree with a ball of string, a marker pen and a flask of tea. En route I’m pleased and surprised to bump into Ounce…

#1563: Changes. Part 2

#1562: Changes. Part 1

In the first of two podcasts looking at what has changed during my fifty-day retreat, you find me heading out into the rain to open the chicken coop… The second of these two looking-back podcasts will be available in a couple of days. The Agatha Christie radio play that I mention listening to can be found here (available until 21st August 2020). As you’ll hear me explaining in this episode, I’m still not feeling as though I’m out of my health dip and am planning another fifty-day retreat. This time however I am wondering if I'm going to be able to be more present both here and over on Patreon. Whilst I'm not making any promises, I am going to continue to explore the gentle structure that has emerged from my first fifty-day retreat and will see what that means for this podcast and Patreon.
