After having built a chicken coop I decided to place it. This turned out to be harder than I anticipated. I had way too many trees and had to chop a bunch down. Plus I didn’t notice the “dirt road” tiles that wouldn’t let me put things on top of it. And accurately lining up an item where you want it is not that easy either. But eventually I placed the coop just southeast of my barn and moved the fodder over left. It’s kind of cramped, but I’m sure that will change.
As usual I gifted Iroha a marguerite and she gave me more blueprints.
- Silver Sickle
- Silver Hoe
- Silver Watering Can
Had the meeting with the Harvest Goddess this morning. I actually read about online play. I’m seriously thinking about trading a branch to my Japanese game since I have two or three of them in this one. Anyone want to wifi?
More marguerites for Iroha resulted in:
- Iron Axe
- Iron Hammer
I crafted the cow bell today. While it doesn’t call them in from outside like I hoped, it does make it so I don’t have to shove them nearly as much. I hate trying to push them all the way across the barn. My aching back!
I made a storage shed. It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. I still can’t carry much (I blame tools), but at least I got rid of the branches and black rocks and stuff cluttering up my bag.
Today was Emma’s birthday. I gave her herbs.
Nothing much was going on so I made some fish traps and monitored them. The exciting life of a broke farmer.
Today as I walked into Iroha’s house to deliver her daily flower I got a heart event! She wanted me to help her decide what ore to smith with. She rambled on a bit. I told her she wasn’t crazy and scored points with her. Hooray! The heart event music was kinda creepy though. After I gave her a flower she gave me more blueprints.
- gold sickle
- gold hoe
- gold watering can
I got to give the harvest sprites birthday presents today because it didn’t rain in this game. Nothing great came from that endeavor.
Highlight of the day: I made a copper watering can. Now if only it wasn’t so late in the season and I had more stuff planted.
Today was the crop festival. I bombed at it of course: third place. But I participated to get points with villagers. And guess what. Iroha’s heart is purple today!
Flower giving day. I gave flowers. The only other exciting event was my purchase of a chicken. I named her Nugget.
Dunhill came in today and involved me in his town renovation plans. I have three tasks to perform for the first renovation:
- Place 5 ball topiaries in the village
- Place 10 street lights in the village
- Place 3 wooden benches in the village
I made the topiaries and put them around town. Nothing happened after I placed the 5, so I assume I have to complete all three tasks before something happens.
I was also bombarded with mail. There’s new stuff in the shops. It tells me how much money I made from shipping last month: 65,203 gold. Sucks that I’m always broke after having that much money! Where did it go?
After giving Iroha a flower she gave me even more blueprints:
- Ultra Axe
- Ultra Hammer
I’m now caught up with my Japanese game. This one is going much more smoothly. Partly because of my blueprint snafu on the other game, but also because I got screwed by the weather and couldn’t find a branch. It’s also kind of nice to have already gotten a heart event. I suppose my JP character should try to woo Neil. He’s such a sourpuss though.
BOO NEIL SUCKS!!!
I’m saving myself for Prince Amir.
I’m up to Spring 20. I can just FEEL the imminent change of more stuff to do, coming right around the corner! Are we going to be able to get pets in this game? I can’t deal with pushing my cow all around. She’s staying shut in the barn until I hear about a dog who will do that job for me.
I got a letter from Taro in Sunshine Islands telling me about a Harvest Sprite Island sprouting up… did you get that? I was like MUH?!?! O.o
Btw, you better not stop playing HM just cuz you’re Miss Cool Cuz I Have AC3DS! Wahhh sooo jealous… lol
