I’m posting a little sooner after my last post than I’ve done lately because I feel like my last few were on the long side as a result of covering so many days in them. Some sort of schedule for this blog would be ideal, but I doubt I’d be able to stick to it, especially when I get busier in the Fall. I guess I’m on a “when it feels right for me” schedule, sorry about that!
Thanks a lot to everyone who gave me input on where I should put my café! I still haven’t come to a decision yet, and I don’t think I’ll tally up the “results” like a poll and base my decision solely on that, but I’ll use the opinions shared as part of my thought process. 🙂
Friday, July 19 (Day 40):
I found Katie in my town, but didn’t see any WiFi friends online for a drop-off, so I took her to my dad’s town. I hope Katie won’t be stuck in Red Bank for long or anything; my dad doesn’t really have any towns other than mine to drop her off at, and I’m not sure if Katie would come back to my town… but maybe she would? My gift from her was another digital photo frame, anyone want it?
My dad has the fairy-tale street light, I’m jealous! 😥 Having the fairy-tale clock unlocked is great, but what I want most right now is the bridge and streetlight. I’d love to start placing them along my paths!
Saturday, July 20 (Day 41):
I was tempted by this crown — it’d be fun to maybe play up a fairy-tale princess look with one of my characters — but I don’t have a million bells, and I didn’t feel like beetle-hunting. Maybe it’ll show up another time, hopefully when I have more money.
Wow, three fruit-themed shirts! 😛 These were all Gracie exclusives back in the day.
I’m glad she let me buy her picnic table, it seemed out of place to me.
Aw, I’m the one who gave her this! ^_^ She had an oddly specific request for furniture one day, asking for something to put on her modern wood cabinet. I hope I can continue to try to modify her room! In AC:WW you could do this by sending them things in the mail, I wonder if that still works?
Caught this banded dragonfly while bug-hunting for the Bug-Off, but it went to the museum.
I ended up winning the Bug-Off with a 118-point Birdwing, and went to the ceremony this time! 😀
I thought it’d be fitting to go with Forest Life for my first song request ^_^
Second time this evening >_< I'm having storage issues!
I got two Forest Lifes from K.K., one for a music player and one for a music box, which you can get by taking a giant clam shell, a music album, and 3000 bells to Cyrus. (Though I think it was unnecessary to get two Forest Lifes from K.K. himself because I’ve noticed that songs can be ordered through the catalog now.) I also made a music box out of Stale Cupcakes; it sounded pretty when I visited the deer Diana’s house in Ordona. 🙂 I’ll probably rely on music boxes a lot for now because I don’t have many music players I like.
I went to the Happy Homes Showcase and found my third SpotPass house, probably someone else from Nintendo?
I loved this lamp in his house, but wasn’t able to order it! 😦 I can imagine a room with this lamp, stained glass windows, and jewel-customized furniture — everything jewel-bright and shining! But maybe it wouldn’t look as good as it looks in my head. 😛
This is what Estel’s house looks like with the new hedge, by the way. And a full moon! *_* Though it’s a shame the symmetry of the two trees on either side was ruined…
I have lots of lilies around Estel’s house because her name means “star” and lilies are sort of star-shaped, but I’m having trouble figuring out the best arrangement. 😕
Sunday, July 21 (Day 42):
I went ahead and bought the fairy-tale wall for Lyra’s house, which has already gotten several other fairy-tale house parts: the mail-box, roof, and door. But what’s a bummer is that I might end up moving Lyra’s house from its current location (depending on where I choose to put the café), so then I’ll have to start over. xP Oh well! It’s been interesting for me to see how Lyra’s fairy-tale house looks with the paths I have, since I think this current mosaic path matches pretty well with the fairy-tale color scheme. ^_^ But I still want to make a new mosaic path that will incorporate moons/suns/stars into the pattern, one of the many things on my town improvement to-do list. I also badly need to do some tree re-organizing. I started by planting some regular saplings around the town tree, but I quickly ran out even though I’ve been hoarding saplings since the gardening shop opened. This might be a bit of a long project, so please excuse my town’s messy layout of trees!
