You may be wondering how Hanabi is fairing since I haven’t blogged about it in just about forever. Hanabi is still going strong. I got a little behind, but today I caught up. Yesterday I celebrated nature day. Today I celebrated weeding day and we’re back to present day. What a relief! Here are the highlights.
When last I mentioned it, mayor Vella was mired in the Easter holiday. She didn’t need to be scarfing egg after egg in search of tickets. That was so last year. But she stubbornly persisted in some completionist torture quest to get all of the furniture. Until she got about six pictures of Zipper T. Bunny, decided enough was enough and tried to give them back to the vain furry himself.
But he wouldn’t accept his picture. He wouldn’t even autograph it, so Vella sold them at Re-Tail. What else was she supposed to do with them? She obviously has a picture collecting problem [evidence below] but does not need multiple Zipper pics.
After giving up on Easter she had a little down time and then all of the sudden it was Nature Day. Or Earth Day as some of us like to call it. She hosted a secretive meeting and a couple people stopped by for globes and to take pictures with the cutout. Vella would like to state for the record that she finds Isabelle’s outfit ugly. She misses the lovely kimonos that Isabelle wears for Japanese events.
Some of the townies were not terribly concerned by nature day, but had their own agenda—I’m talking about Barold.
Much later Vella opened up so her estranged husband Kokuto could come get a cool globe. And then she visited Kokuto’s village of Jisuna because she remembered Barold’s petition at the last minute.
Curt was totally rude to Vella. She hopes she never has to ask him to sign a petition again. Calling her fuzzball? Mean!
After Nature Day there were just a few short days on weed patrol before Weeding Day. Vella wanted the topiaries even though there’s no room for more PWPs. Vella has assisted during weeding day in Quantico when it gets overwhelmed by weeds, so she’s got the furniture set.
Vella barged into Flurry’s room and found Barold and Flurry hanging out together and Barold gave her some shocking news (no, not that he’s wearing a ladies sweater):
Julian wouldn’t say anything about wanting to move so Vella avoided him for a bit until he felt ready to spit out his moving day plans. Then she vetoed them which is one of her few mayoral privileges.
Then just like that it was Weeding Day. Weeding Day was kind of underwhelming as nothing actually happened except that Vella couldn’t buy a replacement holly shrub for the one she accidentally dug up when aiming for a rogue bamboo shoot.
The next few days went by in a flash. Mostly because Octavian asked to move. Vella vetoed and then skipped forward to present day. She hopes not to fall behind again. Especially since her year anniversary as mayor is this Thursday. And she really needs to get to know Aurora better so she can comfortably give her the boot.
