Despite not being home much this weekend, I still had some pretty full days. Saturday morning I hosted two adorable ladies:

Shrunk funk shuffle!

Thanks for coming over! I had a blast. And thank you both for the gifts! 😉

Artsy Museum

Euphy brought me a quaint painting, ♥ And I was able to donate the valiant statue I got from Redd. The only piece of art that Hanabi is missing now is the motherly statue. So close!

Concrete Room

After my guests left I noticed that I had Saharah roaming Hanabi. For the heck of it I had her redo my room. She actually gave me matching wallpaper and carpet, but I don’t think my house needs concrete walls and floor…

Not very inviting. I don't think I can sleep with my head next to a concrete wall.

Nurse Vella Scores!

I checked in on O’Hare while my guests were over Saturday morning. He was indeed all better. And very thankful for the aid I gave him. He gave me his picture!

Gold Strike-Out

I got another gold wallpaper. I think (when I get a spare moment) I’m going to redo Locke’s house and have a pirate room and a gold room full of pirate booty. I still want to make a fall room to replace Vella’s beach room, but I doubt I’ll end up making it.

Hi Dreamers!

I checked in on Felicity in her house and she started talking about someone she met in a dream.

Then I talked to her again and she told me she kept the fossil in her house because it makes her look better. Um ok.

If it weren’t for Booker I would never know when Gulliver was around. He told me there were rumors of someone washed ashore. Sure enough there was Gulliver. On his way to Sweden when he washed up.

Quick Note from Kasen

Because I am enjoying fixing up Kasen little by little I thought I’d talk about it. I decided to ask Whitney from my husband’s town to move to Kasen. I’ve never asked a packed-up villager to move, so I figured I may as well do it. And I don’t have any wolves in any of my towns. Plus my husband really likes Whitney. I don’t know why he let her go (to get in a fresh faces I assume. Since he got her picture). I can keep her for when he has letting-villager-go remorse.

If I were Whitney I wouldn't move in to a village when someone wearing demon horns is the one asking...

Yesterday she plopped her house down just west of Nelson/Zell. I see a tryst coming.

I was right about the fairytale bridge being a pain in the butt. I had to remove the round topiary on the other side of the river in order to put it in. That’s an extra 100,000 bells to put the bridge in. It’s ok though. I really like it. I’d replace our other bridge (we only have 2) but I think Kitt’s house is in the way, so I’m trying to be nice to her so she’ll want to move.

Stalk Market for Friday, October 25

AM: 66 Bells
PM: 109 Bells

HNI_0092
Only 30 photos for the last two days which means…slow in Hanabi. The last two days in Kasen have been pretty slow too, but for some reason Lillian has decided each day for the last two days to request a fairy tale PWP. Yesterday she asked for the bridge! And the day before the light that kinda looks like a bug zapper. I removed the fishing bridge in Kasen yesterday. I haven’t played yet today, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to have issues putting the fairy tale bridge where I want it. I imagine there may be some more demolishing and cussing in my future over there, but once I get everything settled it’s gonna be awesome.

Bird Overboard

Despite the lull in Hanabi, I’ve still had visitors each day. Yesterday I had Gulliver. He was trying to get someplace with “beautiful wilderness, maple leaves and all…” If I remember correctly (which is never a sure thing) I haven’t had this locale in English yet, only in Japanese. So I steered him off to Canada and got a dream catcher in the mail this morning.

Me too. How do you think I got these bandages?

Schmoozing

Though not out of the woods, O’Hare is on the mend. I dropped off medicine again yesterday and today. I think he’ll be out and about to greet visitors by tomorrow.

Yesterday: He thought he was dying.

Today: In love. Um, yeah. I'll just set the medicine on the table. Byeeeee!

I also had Felicity over to see my house (which really needs a fall update). She wouldn’t follow me into two of my rooms though. Does that ever happen to you? I’ve had it happen before with one room that the visitor wouldn’t come in, but never two. Maybe I have ghosts in my house or something.

mmm lemon sorbet. I think we can make a lemon slushie with the "frozen drink machine" in the corner.

Redd

Today I had Redd. He had a genuine valiant statue. I haven’t retrieved the one from Quantico yet, so I’ll consider this a good thing. Quantico needs a good art wing too, despite the fact that I haven’t played it in two days and have a post-it note on the cover with the date last-played so I can change the date…I digress.

The motherly statue we need, but this one's a fake.

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Lost and Battered Memory

Stalk Market for Wednesday, October 9

AM: 134 Bells
PM: 148 Bells

I wonder if tomorrow morning will be a spike?

All right, the last two days have not been without visitors. Slightly drama free, but I’ll take what I can get.

Barold and I share a love for sweet things.

Redd’s Forgery Tent

Yesterday Hanabi was graced with Redd’s tent. Unfortunately he didn’t have anything I needed in Hanabi or Kasen. I now have an extra moody painting.

Kasen also had Redd and Yumi bought the beautiful statue for Hanabi but I don’t know when I’ll let Yumi give it to Vella. See, Kasen has both Kitt and Cousteau—two villagers I dislike. Yesterday Cousteau told Yumi he was moving. I was overjoyed and told him to be on his merry way. But I don’t want him to end up in Hanabi because we have a lingering vacancy. I am not completely certain how moving works, so I want to avoid all contact with Kasen until Cousteau has moved (unless someone wants him which would alleviate the problem) Anyone want Cousteau? The streetpass function has been turned off in Hanabi for a while now because I don’t want a surprise resident from streetpass, but I’m assuming you could get one just by visiting. Ok, so maybe there’s a little drama, but it’s self-inflicted.

PWP Gone Awry

The statue fountain was a good idea in theory. I thought it would be the same size as the regular fountain. My bad. It’s 2×2 and the regular fountain is 3×3, so I decided against it and put the regular fountain back. That was a 100,000 bell mistake. I thought about putting something else in the space, but the only things that would fit were weird, like the pyramid or the tooth sculpture.

Nope. Oops.

Nope. Oops.

This morning Soleil decided we needed a tower in Hanabi. I would have put that there instead, but it’s only 2×2 as well and it’s waaaaaay expensive. I love the tower. I have it in Kasen. I might think about putting it somewhere, but I don’t know where. I could always ditch the boot sculpture for the tower in the playground. It almost looks like something you could climb on and pretend to be king kong.

Meteors!

Tonight we’re supposed to have a meteor shower in Hanabi. So, assuming I remember (setting alarm now) I’ll update my dream address when it starts. I think that’s 7pm? Ignore the candy on the ground—or eat it!. I’ve run out of space to store it.

Beautiful Town

In preparation for Pokémon and not wanting to water anymore, I changed Hanabi from rich town to beautiful town. I guess now the only way I’ll get the weeding badge now is if I go over to Quantico every time Leif is outside complaining about the disaster the place has become, but at least I won’t have wilted flowers.
HNI_0097

And that’s pretty much all that’s new in Hanabi. Oh, I’ll definitely open Monday morning for Explorer’s day 10am-Noon PST (GMT-8). Unless the few people have expressed interest in visiting can’t make it at that time.

Stalk Market for Monday, September 30

AM: 88 Bells
PM: Haven’t looked yet.

I didn’t buy turnips because Joan was selling them for 100 bells apiece. Therefore I’m not terribly invested in posting stalk prices.

Camper!

I was so hoping the camper we had Saturday would be someone totally cute that I had to have in Hanabi. But it was Iggly. Pass. Next!

Pure Rustic Theme Magic

I found out that it wasn’t enough to order most of the blue and modern wood sets. Locke scored 1,060,000 points. Not quite enough for that final gold exterior part. Unfortunately Vella was missing pieces of both sets, so I had to enlist Yumi’s aid in ordering them.

But, Sunday morning Locke got a wonderful piece of mail from the HHA stating she could go pick up her final VIP exterior. I haven’t done that yet. I’m still hoping for a good camper (or someone wanting to move from Quantico. So far only Olivia wanted to move.) And then making a third character.

So, I thought I had to get to 1.2 million points. Turns out only 1.1 million.

PWP

Felicity had an idea for a PWP that I might incorporate. I just have to figure out where to put it. She wants an illuminated heart. Oooooh I just thought of somewhere if Isabelle will let me. If she will, I’ll show you the spot Wednesday. 😉 Otherwise I’ll complain about Isabelle’s spacial relations.

Today in Hanabi

The day started off with a frantic game of hide-and-seek. I say frantic because just as I found the second hider, I also spotted Julian and decided to chat with him. He then wanted me to go over to his house. STAT. In the midst of my hide-and-seek game. I couldn’t refuse him (because I’m still hoping for that picture), but neither could I linger very long because I still had to find Shep.

Apparently Shep was sick last week and I didn’t notice. Oops. I thought I didn’t see him around, but never bothered to check in his house. Nurse Vella I am not. Maybe we should get him a life alert or something in case this happens again.

We also had Gulliver washed up on the beach. Unfortunately, while I was trying to take pictures my game kept telling me it was out of room and wouldn’t take any more. Normally I would have freaked out, but this has happened on several occasions on my JP game. The solution is just to open the 3DS camera app. It will say 0 pics for a while, but think…and think…and think…and eventually voila it will say you can take pictures again. But alas, no pics of Gulliver and his fleeting memories of South Korea, where he was trying to go.

HNI_0002

And, since I couldn’t take pictures I shut the game off to fix the problem and haven’t turned it back on. So, that’s Hanabi’s Monday. Now I’m gonna go see if Izzy will let me put that illuminated heart where I want it.

And maybe a little later I’ll write a blog rant about the state of my Japanese classes. Because I really really need to vent about it. 😉

Today the XY Pokémon 3DSes were released. I am pining for the red one, but since I have a Charizard JP 3DS, Pikachu US 3DS, and Animal Crossing 3DS I can’t justify another. I would so like to further my 3DS collection.

I tried to tell my husband that our anniversary was coming up soon October 6? or 7? We both forget which day every year and have to look it up. He wasn’t biting.</need to win the lottery>

Then Today I had an 11:30am appointment at O’Hare’s house followed by a noon appointment at my house with Barold. Busy busy! O’Hare’s house is kinda going downhill, but every time I visit I tell him his house is awesome sauce. He accuses me of lying but thanks me. I wonder, am I supposed to tell him it’s just ok. Or will that make him mad? I still need his picture, so I’m trying to be super polite to him.

Does that mean this is the only organized thing in the place?

V.I.P.

Yesterday I decided to work on Locke’s VIP status. I checked all the items in her house (excluding the basement) and removed anything that was not rustic—her current VIP challenge. I then bought anything in the shop that was rustic because some of her rooms became very barren. This morning I checked the mail and had three VIP letters for her. She reached the 900,000 mark. I think the challenge goes up to 1.2 million points, so I had Vella order a few items from the blue furniture set and modern wood set to bolster the rustic feel.
