Sorry for the lack of posts in October, it was a rather stressful month for me. I didn’t have much time to play AC:WW, so I got way behind. Until a few days ago I hadn’t even gotten past October 15th in my game! >_< I did do one thing for my blog behind the scenes, though. I finished my pattern instructions templates for each palette, and here's an example of what a pattern looks like using one of them:
So that’s a bit of progress towards putting up a patterns page, but I don’t have much time to work on the page again for a while because my top priority right now is preparing entries for Kammile’s fall garden contest and Jemma’s Halloween room/banner contest. Then I’m going to really work hard on improving my town to look the way I want it to since I know my long under construction period (pretty much all of October :() annoyed one or two people. Sorry! >_< Though I did WiFi some in October and in these first few days of November, which I'll cover in my next post.
It about drove me crazy playing catch-up, which involved watering flowers, checking neighbors, saving, setting the time one day forward on the DS clock, and repeating all that again and again… and again. -_- But I got it done in the end and I did enjoy seeing the trees along the way, if only for a little while:
I loved when all the trees alongside my gold path matched, and even the grass has tints of yellow in it.
This is the beginning of my favorite part of Autumn in AC:WW, when some trees are yellow, some orange or red, and some green. It’s just so colorful and vibrant.
And a bit later the contrast between the trees was even greater when the fruit trees turned a deeper orange.
I loved seeing so much blue sky above the distant tree-tops. 😀
But November 3rd’s tree colors — when I finally about caught up my game with real time — are my favorite Fall colors of all!
The deep red leaves with dark purple shadows and bright gold highlights are part of the reason why I love the current trees (also because some trees are still gold and green — later they will all turn red). The red leaves are fitting for this red fruit and red flower area. 😛
No, the leaves changing wasn’t the only thing to happen in October. 😛 I met a few new neighbors and checked the shops everyday, which is a good thing I did, because two items I’ve been wanting to buy showed up!
The first was a crown, as you might have seen me wearing in the tree pictures. It probably wasn’t the best decision because I don’t have much money left now, but one of my goals in Dafdilly was to buy another crown (I bought one in my first town). Sorry Nook, I’ll pay my final debt later. xP
The second item I was thrilled to see was this cabin bookcase! I actually gasped out loud. 😛 I’ve been wanting one in my main room for a long time.
It’s for my cozy reading spot by the fire. I love the pattern on top!
My neighbor to replace Nan was Margie! 😯 I guess I can’t call it 100% luck on my part because rather than being randomly selected to be my neighbor, she came from someone’s ninth slot. But still, I consider it really lucky because she’s a neighbor I wanted in Dafdilly. 😀
My luck continued when I found a random four-leaf clover! Most of the ones I have are from de-weeding my dad’s town. 😛
Monique was my replacement for Tipper, which I can’t say is as lucky, but she’s not horrible or anything.
Aaand the luck is definitely over at this point. xP
But at least my town is pretty much up to date with real time again. My blog isn’t caught up yet because I still need to post about a few recent fun WiFi sessions, which will be next. 🙂
