Keep climbing turnip prices!
It’s a cloudy day in Hanabi today. It hasn’t rained, but it looks like it could at any moment. Umbrellas on standby!
I’ll admit to being a little worried as I walked over to greet Hanabi’s newest villager, Shep. I didn’t know what to expect.
I walked in to introduce myself, wincing a little—he wasn’t grossly deformed or green! Score! I think he’s pretty cute. Some may say he needs a haircut, but that just makes him a little mysterious and laidback.
My one complaint is that his house has my wallpaper and floor. Now I need to switch it up. If only Nookling’s Junction sold wallpapers and floors. Maybe I can do favors and someone will give me some as a reward.
I went over to the river where the campsite is. I didn’t expect to see anything, but there was a bright orange tent pitched. I walked in to find Vladimir, a pink bear. He was very enamored with Hanabi village, especially our cherries (they are pretty fabulous). He was so enamored that he asked if he should move in. I think we’ve got our fill of bears and cubs with Barold and Charlise, so I turned him down. But I hope he enjoys his stay and doesn’t get bit by too many mosquitoes.
Main Street is booming! Yesterday’s banging and clanging has ceased and a new store has taken up residence: the garden center. Hanabi can sure use a gardening store. The new proprietor’s name is Leif. He’s a bit slow, but keeps a beautiful fragrant little shop. I only wish he had an axe. My mayorship for an axe!
I bought out the flowers and the sapling. I hear tell that if you buy enough flower seeds Leif will give you a silver watering can. I’m already over this old watering can so I intend to buy out the store every day.
It should go without saying that I made a tidy profit last night on the island. I deposited it in my bank account because I was waiting for Nook to set up my new loan. This morning the bank had sent me a box of tissues as a reward for storing my money with them.
This morning Nook had gotten the tally for my loan: $198,000 bells. I reluctantly paid it off and then went to see what exterior items he had on display. Still nothing that struck my fancy, but I’m not sure what look I want for my house. Of course every time I go to see him he corners me and makes me feel that my house is inadequate. When he offered to build a second story on my house I just couldn’t say no.
I should have. It will set me back $298,000 bells. To the island I will go. Come on sharks! (Sharks sell for $15,000 bells each)
Lest you think I’m just a money grubbing mayor (it’s hard to argue with that…) I did make a few altruistic donations to the museum today. I had the painting I bought from Redd yesterday appraised. It was deemed legitimate and I donated it to the museum. Now every wing has at least one item in it.
I also donated a nasty flea I caught off of Victoria (though she’d rather I didn’t tell anyone about that).
