The weather in Timber was lovely this evening! I managed to catch the very start of tonight’s sunset, while the town was bathed in a warm, golden glow. Icon_0018_Music-note

Of course, today was the Flea Market, and I was looking forward to bagging a couple of deals.

I also received a very cute letter from my mom about the fireflies back home.

Now, let’s get down to business! Well, I mean, I would if anyone was actually home…

Guys, please, open up! I need to manipulate you into selling me things dirt cheap!

Well, after a handful of disappointments I eventually arrived at Baabara’s place, who was happy to let me browse what she had to offer. I knew she wouldn’t let me down!

Unfortunately, though, she was pretty attached to both items that caught my eye. Well, I guess it’s for the best – I wouldn’t want to mess up such cute interior design, anyway.

Rocco was also home, which really wasn’t anything out of the ordinary, given how sick he’s been this last week. But wait… He’s finally recovered!

And to think, it only took a dose of medicine strong enough to bring down, well, a hippoIcon_0004_Medicine

Whoa there, big guy, you might want to think long and hard before you start throwing the big F-word around so causally… Well, the other big F word, anyway.

Anyway, enough of the waterworks… I think I deserve a thank-you gift!

20180707_16-37-27.423 ANIMAL CROSS.png

REALLY!?! I hand delivered medicine to you for a week straight and you think a butt-ugly kiddie wall is–

Whoa, whoa…
Okay… I’m okay.
Everything’s okay
.

I mean, I guess the real payoff is now I can work on getting this hideous hippo out of my precious Timber…

WHAT DO YOU MEAN “NO ESCAPE”?!

I swear, Rocco, sleep with one eye open.

20180707_18-08-15.996 ANIMAL CROSS.png

Uh, sorry about all that… I blacked out for a second there. Where were we, again?

Oh yeah, I decided to take a break and tend to my flower gardens to let off some steam.

A second orange pansy popped up in my Southern hybrid garden. Cute! Icon_0003_Watering-can

After selling a handful of things at Nook’s, I decided to stop by the Able Sisters for a chat with Sable. She shared some advice her father used to tell her and Mable when they were kids.

Inspired by Sable’s words-of-wisdom, I decided to head home and dump out all the clutter taking up valuable space in my wardrobe. This way I can finally make a start on furnishing Pines’ main room.

Come and get it, guys! Icon_0019_Leaf

Roald was first through the door and into my room (that looked like something straight out of Hoarders). I managed to offload my red armchair, my beach chair and of course the bromo– bromelee– (oh forget it!) plant that Baabara gifted me the other day.

Next up was Derwin. Welcome to my collection of shame! Please, this is a cry for help! He bought my cabana wardrobe, my bonsai and my candle.

My final customer was Lucy, who I gently encouraged to buy my tape deck and my candy machine.

With so much of the trash gone, I could finally start decorating Pines’ room! I like to imagine him as an explorer, visiting far-off lands and discovering lost treasures, so I decided to model his room around that. It isn’t much, but it’s a start!

Since there was still a little while to go before K.K.’s gig at The Roost, I finished my daily chores and chatted with a couple of villagers while I waited.

I bumped into Roald, who asked me for a new greeting. Naturally, I choose an awful pun.

20180707_17-41-32.906 ANIMAL CROSS.png 20180707_17-45-40.431 ANIMAL CROSS.png

Some time later, I bumped into Lucy by the bridge. She wanted to ask me a personality quiz to determine which local celebrity I was most like. Needless to say, I was pretty pleased with the result!

It wasn’t long before 8pm rolled around, and it was time for the musical stylings of Mr. Slider. I hope you enjoy his performance of Lucky K.K. Icon_0018_Music-note

Have a great weekend!

Until next time! Icon_0027_Lucky-clover

  1. I love this kind of weather, too! So hazy and golden <3 You have some cozy house styles/exteriors in your town, and they go well with each other — always nice when that happens ^^
    Hahaha, the Rocco pay-off we have been waiting for xD So classic, getting a kiddie wall after all that~ Plus with the grim hint that he wants to stick around!
    It's nice that you participated a bit in the Flea Market in your own home! I'm often too lazy to do that, but I do take the opportunity to try to clean up villager houses if I can (but like you, would run into issues of them wanting to keep things I want to buy). That's a nice snapshot of your home coming along at the end! I love the vibe it gives off, and I'm impressed because I find it kind of hard to decorate interiors to my satisfaction in Wild World, with how limited the catalog is compared to later games.

  2. HAHAHA… ROCCO WHY?! Considering he was sick for like a week, a kiddie wall isn’t enough to pay for the amount of bells spent for his medicine. Good bye, kiddie wall. You will not be missed. Glad to see flea market turned out well in the end! I suddenly remember being annoyed that villagers I wanted to buy stuff from weren’t even in their homes. Oh well! Hahaha.

    I love Lucky K.K.! I had that playing in my ACCF house! <3 I wonder if it's /still/ playing or if i put a different song there again..

    1. Rocco? Who’s Rocco? We don’t speak of that name around these parts…

      The best villagers are always out of their homes, it’s so frustrating! Then again, I really do hate messing with pretty villager houses because you know they’ll just fill the spot with a super toilet or a campfire…

      Cool! You should definitely check, could be a nice trip down memory lane!
