3BT – clears up/pods/new day, moulting, goulash, mossy

3BT

1. It’s grey and drizzling as I set out for the allotment but it clears up by the time I’m ready to dig. The ground is still largely dry and the soil moves easily. 1b. It takes longer to harvest the mange tout than I thought it would: there are plenty of pods amongst the […]

3BT – (recover), emulsion, push/production/bright, ramen

3BT

0. Lily had another of her “drunk”/episodes last night and still wasn’t right when we went to sleep. By this morning though, her neurological wobble had fixed itself and all her legs move on command again. Phew. 1. A perfect oil/vinegar emulsion. 2.

3BT – altered/fa-doiiiink/EVERYWHERE, crumpets, experiment

3BT

1. I try a new style of foot for one of my bowls and it turns out brilliantly. I also rework another of the bowls from the other day: getting rid of its messy experimental rim and altering it cleanly instead. 1b. The metal scraper fa-doiiinks in pleasant way when I waft it around, so […]

3BT – chase, do you have sheep?/nerd out/doodlebots/city/giddy, driving

3BT

1. I watch squirrels chasing and racing each other around an old massive tree. When they see me, they freeze like garden ornaments: one mid-climb on the bark, the other on a branch as if it is nibbling a nut. 2. I think I recognise someone in the queue for coffee and it turns out […]
