I’ll be honest, I’ve gotten behind not only in posting, but also in my game in general. There were a few weeks I wasn’t able to play much AC:NL at all, and I don’t like to leave things to chance (like Melba moving out, or the most amazing item showing up when I’m not there to buy it), so I’ve been catching up through the days I missed by TTing. As I write this post I’m at around mid-September in my game, so that’s the extent of what this post covers. But I’m going to try to catch up to the present as soon as possible!
I got my first jacob’s ladder, yay! 😀 But only one, and no golden can, because I was wanting to demolish some things and quickly lost PTS. Ah well, I’m sure I’ll get it again.
I experimented with changing the motif on my mosiac paths. It’s usually just an abstract circular pattern, but here it looks more like a star/snowflake type thing. I wasn’t sure if I liked it better or not, so I reset without saving (so I wouldn’t have to re-do the path to how it was before). Any feedback/opinions?
A few weeks ago I met up with Ryann in her town Shantaki to do various trades/gift exchanges, and Jasper from Windfall came as well. I hadn’t WiFied with either of them in a while, so it was great to see them again! 😀
I proudly whipped out a balloon I recently got from a trader at an AC forum, and to my surprise, both Ryann and Jasper had balloons as well. 😛 I guess they aren’t rare, but I don’t really StreetPass, so balloons are still novel to me.
She offered to give me two blue roses so that I could breed more of my own, which was extremely generous! Thanks so much for everything, Ryann, and for having me over! 🙂
Melba’s started making unexpected visits, so I guess my friendship level with her is getting high.
It reminded me of my character Harmony’s room in AC:WW:
And I got the lunar horizon (which I’d been wanting for Estel’s bedroom) with one of my other characters! 😀
I thought it might be fun to put together a Fall-themed room since I got the carpet and wallpaper from Saharah a while back, but I don’t think I have enough alpine furniture to really do it properly.
Argh, the HHA Showcase can have bushes next to street lamps, jealous! xP
I decided to use the fertilizer Kiki gave me with the blue roses Ryann gave me to see if I could grow another blue rose, and it worked!
Since then, I’ve continued to water the blue roses daily and I haven’t managed to grow any more… guess the fertilizer is much more effective! xP
Finally got all the emotions! There were a fair amount of days it slipped my mind to get a new emotion, so it took me a little while.
Katie and I brightening up a rainy day with the Flourish emotion! 🙂 I had to wait a pretty long time for this emotion, to the very last row.
Frank decided to move out, which I was quite happy about since his house was in the middle of a path. (I also hope Robin can move out one of these days so I can build the Café. >_<)
To replace Frank, yet another neighbor from my digital town Bywater moved into Citàlune, but this time it was a planned and wanted move, since I consider Colton one of my dream neighbors. 😀
I loove his house exterior and think it fits well with the sunny color scheme on the fairytale-city side of town.
And the interior of his house isn’t bad either, he seems to share similar tastes with Estel!
In remodeling the train station and town hall, I’ve made a pretty big step in getting my town more the way I dreamed of it pre-game. 🙂 (The train station, believe it or not, I unlocked first. On a long car ride a while back, there was nothing better to do, so I just visited my own town over and over using my dad’s 3DS. 😛 ) I wonder what the origin for the town hall is, like if it’s supposed to resemble a Russian church, or just be a generic palace that might be found in a fairytale (hence the name)? I don’t know, but I like it a lot!
This rock in front of the town hall — which has even made me consider resetting before — is still a nuisance and an eyesore, but after moving the path to the town hall farther down than it was before, I feel like I have more space to landscape and build PWPs without the rock majorly getting in the way.
Katie and Lyra in one of my favorite spots in town. 🙂 She comes to my town a lot…
I decided to expand the entrance to Estel’s castle by building a central fountain with bushes wrapped around it in a circle (not done with the bushes yet). I have to say, I’m not crazy about this light green grass color at all, not for my town anyway. xP But I look forward to seeing the changing colors this season; hopefully I’ll like it more when reds, oranges, and golds are added to the palette. 🙂
