Instead of splitting April neatly in half for its two posts, I’m going to have one post be for the cherry blossom festival and one be post-cherry blossom festival, since the cherry blossoms are such a lovely and special time of year, and there are so many pictures to share. But before we get to those, there’s the first event of the month, April Fools!
And it’s about time for a new post in general! I’m sorry for the inactivity on my blog, but I haven’t been inactive in AC as a whole, since I’ve been pretty busy working on my town, along with doing some WiFing. I got to visit Miagen, Tenshi, Delltune, and Okelani!
It’s been a whiiile since I posted on regular town happenings in Citàlune, so if you need to refresh your memory on what happened in the beginning of March in my town, feel free to check out this post again 🙂
We’re starting off this post with a picture of Violet, which I took because of her new ‘dazed dress’ that showed up at Ables’ — which was one of my wishlist items! 😀 I think it looks really cute on her and sort of mirrors the diamond shapes that pop up in her house’s design, both the exterior, and the main room’s interior.
Right now Citàlune is kind of at a stand-still because of neighbors moving-in/out reasons, and I guess because of reasons resulting from my perfectionism as well! xP You see, I’m currently stuck on the date Melba is packed up, March 17. I plan on moving Melba to my second, more casual, town Bywater. But even though the town is more casual, I still want to be very picky with Melba’s house location since she’s my favorite neighbor and I want to make her spot in town kind of special. I need to strategically spread PWPs all over Bywater so that it’s not impossible to reset for Melba’s house plot to land in the exact spot I want. That is what I’ve been working on lately, and it’s kind of a confusing process for me, figuring out the spaces apart that I should put PWPs. xP
In the meantime, I’ll share about some of the New Leaf WiFis I’ve had recently, including a few trades and visits with Lenore, Marina, Choco, and Megan.
The beginning of March in Citàlune has brought festivities and events like Festivale and a new Fishing Tourney. Beautiful weather like golden sunsets and meteor showers have graced the skies. New paths have been laid, and there are hints of new villager changes on the way. Spring truly feels like it has arrived. 🙂
Not enough happened in February to justify splitting it into two posts like I usually do for each month…which was partly my own doing, probably. Despite what I’ve said before about wanting to slow down and savor winter, I might have ended up rushing through this last month of winter, because I kept TTing ahead quicker than usual in the hope that Erik would be the next one to ask to move. But nope, he’s still here, and at this point everyone else in my town has asked to move out (some of them multiple times) since Erik moved in. Recently I heard of the possibility that the newest villager to move into one’s town won’t consider moving out until someone new has moved in. So if that’s the case, I may have to change my determined plan about having Erik be the one to move out next.
Still, there a few events to enjoy in February with Groundhog’s Day and the month’s Fishing Tourney, and the end of February saw a return to a sight not seen for a while: green grass!
The excitement of the events in December and for the New Year may be over, but the end of January has been very beautiful to witness: from shooting stars in the cold winter sky, to heavy snowfall, to budding green leaves appearing in the trees—beckoning Spring to come.
I thought I’d continue my trend lately of keeping WiFis separate from regular town happenings posts, seems like an organized way to go about it. Anyway, earlier this past week it was my pleasure to WiFi with Megan, who I’ve previously mentioned on this blog as Megan from Dreams and Megan from Blossom, and now she is Lana from Bloom! 🙂
This isn’t a regular town happenings post, but a while back I made a gridded map for my town and hardly ever mentioned it on this blog again, so I thought it might be cool to have a post on how my gridded map has changed over time and how it’s helped me make decisions about my town. But please don’t feel like you have to read it if this sort of thing doesn’t interest you — heck, it might not interest anybody. xP
