Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Hey there, Honeybun!

Stalk Market: Closed

Though Joan was selling for 95 bells a piece I declined to buy as it’s going to be a busy week and I don’t know if I can be as attentive as I should.

Also, this is my last post until…maybe Friday?

In my Dreams

I finally got around to getting Hanabi a dream address, so when you get the dream suite you can come visit any time you like. I’m going to attempt to update it frequently, so you can come over and watch Hanabi grow.

I also took a nap and had a lovely dream of Rokumeikan village. So pretty!

Ooooh sphinx!

Hanabi’s Public Works Addiction

We celebrated our brand new street lamp today. Of course no sooner was it unveiled than Victoria decided we needed a round streetlight cause they’re all the rage. I would have gladly put a round streetlight in yesterday. Timing is everything!

Hooray for new street lamps!

This is the round one. It's a little modern for my vision of this town.

Since I was on a public works kick I asked Isabelle what the citizens thought of Hanabi. Once again I was told we needed more public works. I think I found the perfect place for a fountain so I told her we’d build it and off I went to show her the spot.

With a little landscaping it will be perfect!

Being the generous mayor that I am, I paid it off. Tomorrow we’ll have a fountain. Now if only I could get my hands on some more pink and blue hydrangeas…

Not Lost Kitten

Since it’s Sunday we don’t usually get many visitors, but I did find Katie wandering around town. I escorted her to the train station and we took a little trip.

Coffee Slinging

We only had one out-of-towner today, but I got to serve Julian his favorite coffee. At least in NL I make mean latte art.

Ah Julian, you are a silly little unicorn (even though my guide lists you as a horse. Are you sure you’re real?)

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Not a Morning Person

It’s definitely cooler at night.

Disco Fever

Since I was out and about and only a little bit wet (I think the crown is waterproof—It ought to be for what I paid for it.), I decided to pay a visit to Club lol. Soleil was in there pretending not to dance. It’s kinda hard to tell when she dances though because she’s so tiny. She seemed to be swaying a little bit.

I didn’t quite get her “it’s your birthday” reference because my birthday’s not until August, but I think it was something to do with the fact that it was party night in Club lol.

All Paid Up

After dancing I decided to be productive and I paid off my loan and picked a spot for the Reset Center (aka manhole cover). I’ve been planning a spot for the center for a few days now. It’s kind of in the center of town, which I don’t like, but I know from previous experience that I’ll never check to see if it’s open if I put it off in a corner. So I’m trying to get rid of its NIMBY vibe by surrounding it with pink and white azalea bushes and pink and white flowers. Unfortunately I can’t buy bushes in Hanabi yet so I have to rely on the generosity of others (and the whim of Leif and his stock) to complete my landscaping.

That's the beginning of my vision for the "center". Just add flowers and more shrubbery. I'm pro shrub.

After testing out my new hammer on Jambette yesterday I felt a little bad. So today *looks around guiltily* I talked to her. She acted like nothing had happened and I haven’t been hitting her with things for weeks (Maybe she’s brain damaged?).

In my defense she talked to me first. And gave me a cherry. I didn’t eat it for fear it might be poisoned (I’d poison me if I were Jambette).

I gave the cherry to Shrunk. If something happens to him you know why.

But then I talked to her again. The only reason I talked to her was that I found something lost by an orange tree and she was the first townie I saw. I didn’t actually think it was hers or that I was doing her a favor. Just last night I declined Kitt’s request to deliver something to her.

But it was hers and she thanked me and gave me a Natty Shirt. I should have just tossed the book!

darn it!

This does not mean we’re ok or that I don’t want her to move out.

Unacceptable

Every morning I stop in Nook’s Homes to see if he has a suitable mailbox for my house. So far no luck. Apparently he’d already found out that I paid off my loan late last night and he cornered me about expanding my house. He’s always making me feel that it’s inadequate (it is). And that it would be so much more comfortable if it were bigger (it would). I should just add a new room because those dinky additions are almost reasonably priced, but I have the rococo set upstairs and I can’t even walk in that room. So I told him to make it bigger. Even though I still can’t fit all of the astro furniture and sci-fi furniture in the back room comfortably…

HNI_0010

What? No. I like my house. My eyes don't say "We need more room for furniture!" Nooooooooo

What? No. I like my house. My eyes don’t say “We need more room for furniture!” Nooooooooo

So I’m back in the hole to the tune of $498,000 bells again. But maybe I won’t be so self conscious about having guests over after I can tidy up. I really should’ve bought more turnips…

Katie Again

This morning I found Katie the kitten wandering about town. When I talked to her she mentioned wanting to visit other places. My options are kinda limited at the moment so I was just going to dump her off take her back to Kasen. But as we were boarding the train she dropped her ticket and I was the only one who ended up visiting Yumi (who by the way does not have anything cool on her island today).

Um, hi touristy tween kitten. Check out our cool lighthouse and cafe (there isn't much else to see yet)

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Honey, I’m Home

Stalk Market

Highway robbery alert: Joan was selling turnips for 110 bells apiece. I declined to buy at that outrageous price. I bought a few hundred over in Jisuna village for the slightly less egregious price of 100 bells each.

Her price was so bad she was hiding behind bushes so I wouldn't run her out of town.

Sundays are pretty laid back in Hanabi village. Joan walks around and that’s about it. I visited all the shops and made a poor fashion choice. But in my defense, it’s hard to find clothes to go with a royal crown and I refuse to take it off yet.

I also visited Shep and scheduled a time for Barold to come over and see my room.

Because it's you Shep, I'm totally impressed.

Conclusion

Yesterday was a big day because I got to see K.K. Slider live. Here are pics of that.

We also had a meteor shower. I wished on a ton of shooting stars and this morning I had a lovely letter from the wishing star and attached was a mother panda. It doesn’t look like a panda to me, just a white teddy bear, but I was happy to get it just the same.
Pics of the meteor shower are over here.

The town tree. Growing nicely.
