There have been lots of rainbows in Dafdilly lately! There was one last Monday, another a few days later, and one yesterday that I got multiple pictures of as it grew brighter and then faded.
Full picture: 🙂
Well, last week I kind of left everyone hanging about whether or not I won the Bug-Off, but I did!
It’s my first trophy in this town! 😀 I was still wearing Teru’s lovely butterfly shirt that I appropriately wore for the Bug-Off itself.
I left the red vase I got from Saharah a while ago on the town hall pavement so that I wouldn’t forget to give it to Crazy Redd this time. 😛
What a heavy hint 😆 I didn’t waste any time and went straight to Nook, not even stopping to see what it looks like.
Haha, I was surprised by how he carefully described his ‘glamour shot’ 😛
It’s on my fireplace now:
I was very tempted by this crown since they don’t show up often:
But I only had ~700,000 bells in my bank account at the time. I even started trying to make 300,000 bells so that I could buy it, but after selling all my fruit for about 100,000 bells, I decided that it wasn’t the smartest thing to empty my bank account for. Besides, I bought one in my original town (which is now saved in my dad’s town)… I kind of want to buy one in Dafdilly eventually, though. The royal (king) crown, too.
I get a kick out of the use of quotations here 😆

Melody was up late working on finishing all the pieces for the new side path:
As you can see by the timestamp, Melody was in the Able Sisters past 11 PM — they don’t kick you out like Nook does! I’m going to have to edit the side paths all over again when the grass changes color in October. -_-
It was weird seeing Joey’s old house location empty since he was one of my original eight neighbors:
The spot wasn’t vacant long, though! Pudge lives there now, who moved in after WiFing with Kammile. (He’s not from Kammile’s town, though, he was just in Kammile’s 9th slot.)
On Saturday night, Kammile invited me to come to StarCity to pick up some gifts she ordered just for me! 😀 It was my first time meeting her character Dawn. ^_^
Kammile gave me 3 furniture items I’ve been wanting a long time:
- a lovely phone
- a cabin chair
- an apple tv
- and a bag of 99,000 bells! 😮
Thank you Kammile, that was so nice!!
I wanted to give a few things in return, too, so I gave her an Arc de Triomphe model I got from Gulliver recently, a meadow vista, a groovy shirt, and a few plants.
She also invited me to hunt for buried treasure in her town:
So fun! And so generous ❤
I still have lots of fireworks in storage, so I brought some over to set off during our WiFi meeting. 🙂
Kammile’s island, dubbed Flower Paradise, looks so lovely! She’s using the new side path I made, so our islands are coordinating really well right now! ^^
Twisk and Dawn were morphed after visiting Gabi’s house, and we had fun taking strange pictures of the sight.
Kammile prepares for things a lot sooner than I do! She first started preparing for her upcoming Halloween party in August, I think. 😮
I love this cozy dining room! The flowers on the table are a nice, realistic touch.
And I was excited to see this new sky balcony! 😀 I love formal gardens that make use of the columns and statues in the game, and create a peaceful atmosphere with running water. The new décor has increased her HRA score as well!
…lol 😳 I was surprised to see that those button-controlled sayings work when sitting on a toilet, to be honest.
Dawn also played dress-up a lot, which was fun to see 😛
She allowed me to explore her town when she went offline. There are lots of breeding spots and benches scattered throughout her town. 🙂
I found this amazing pattern pond by the waterfall! I want to try making my own water patterns sometime, but I don’t know if they’ll turn out this good. 😛
And a real pond! 😆 This is actually my favorite pond you can get in the game! Not all towns have the same shaped ponds; this one, for example, only shows up in ‘blank’ acres that contain villagers’ house plots. I hope I get this pond in Trildale 🙂
Wow, I love the patterns at her Ables’! *_*
Next, Dawn came over to my town! I had time to put the lovely phone and apple tv she gave me into my house real quick.
The lovely phone belongs in Bell’s room. ^_^ Its message was fitting since I was thinking about buying a crown earlier that week. 😛
Bed bumping on Harmony’s bed 😆
We had time to visit some of my neighbors before I went to bed (as you can see, it was getting pretty late), including Baabara, who used to live in StarCity — and we’re going to try to move her back there! Thank you again Kammile for the wonderful gifts and WiFi session 😀
Yesterday I grew a black rose, and since I grew a purple rose last week, here’s an update on my blue rose breeding spot(s):
Still haven’t gotten one, though. 😛
I also got my first bottlemail from a real person that day — from none other than Kammile’s character Devon! 😆
After depositing the money Kammile gave me, along with some money I made myself the past several days, my balance was was over one million bells!
I got a tissue box in the mail later. 🙂 Once I bring over the ~5 million from my original town (being stored in my dad’s town), I’ll be well on my way to earning the piggy bank.
I re-arranged Bell’s room a bit, now that I have the lovely phone, and it’s pretty much complete. I would like some advice, though, on which of these is better:
(1) Set-up with the froggy chair and lily-pad table, and a carpet of pink and green polka dots and stars:
(2) Set-up with the green chair and green desk, and a carpet of peach and yellow checks:
The concept for Bell’s bedroom comes from how I imagine her as a character (elementry school age — hence the alarm clock, area for doing homework, etc). I set up a poll:
It’s just for fun, but I’m curious to see the votes!
So now you’ve seen how I used the lovely phone and apple tv, and here’s how I used the cabin chair Kammile also gave me:
My previous chairs might have been more colorful, but I think these cabin ones fit the rustic fairytale cottage feel I’m going for in this room more than econo chairs. 😛
It rained for a little while yesterday, then cleared up, and I was lucky to see all the stages of a rainbow!
Yesterday was also Yay Day:
Haha, I said Peewee was a musical genius since he made Dafdilly’s town tune and I’ve been too lazy to change it to something better. 😛
Wow, it looks like Maple’s moving already
My biggest project I completed on Sunday was re-planting Dafdilly’s trees in preparation for October.
First, I recorded the trees as they were (shown as green):
Then I planned my new trees:
As you can see by comparing these two maps, I kept the layout of trees mostly the same… Even though I’m not 100% satisfied with my layout of trees, I don’t have time to completely re-plan the layout of trees right now. What I did do is strategically spread out different types of trees since they will all change to different colors in October and November depending on their types. Fruit trees are usually the darkest, and then saplings and bell trees come in two different lighter shades. Cedars and coconut palms don’t change color as much. I’ve been stocking up on axes and saplings since the beginning of this town, and fortunately I had more than enough for the job. 🙂
A picture of an area in my sapling-filled town once I was finished. (I got into the tree-planting spirit with this haircut and outfit 😛 )
And now it’s full of baby trees! 🌱
