Loading up Timber today, I was greeted by a beautiful warm sunset. A pretty stark transition from the gloomy climate of last night!
Pete had been by and dropped two letters in my mailbox; one from Redd, expressing his distaste for Tom Nook in the form of a weekly password; and one from my Mom.
Next, I went to go check on Marina to see if she’d reconsidered last night’s move. Luckily she had; she was back to her old self and asking the real questions!
I’m really not the kind of player to prevent my villagers moving – I honestly enjoy the cycle of new faces in town – but I would have felt pretty cruddy if Marina decided to pack up on her birthday.
Leaving Marina’s house I bumped into a couple more villagers enjoying what little was left of today’s sun. First, there was Roald, who was also asking the real questions.
And then Mint, who’s really been into her gardening lately. Her house has quickly become bordered with flowers and she and her watering can seem pretty much inseparable nowadays… Even if she does seem kind of pessimistic about the whole thing.
Bunnie, on the other hand, decided to call it an early night, which appeared to trigger some sort of an aggressive mid-life crisis. I was sure to leave before her issues became far too relatable to this twenty-year-old man-baby playing a game primarily designed for kids.
Remembering Redd’s letter, I decided to head to the town hall plaza to test my luck with whatever artwork the sly fox had to offer.
I shelled out some cash and took my chances with the worthy painting he had in stock, but I decided to first check in on Rocco before heading to the museum. Turns out Rocco’s illness was still trying to kill him off, so I put a stop to that before getting my painting evaluated by Blathers.
Turns out the worthy painting (aka. Liberty Leading the People) was legit, and it made a welcome little addition to my gallery!
And with that, I decided to call it a day in Timber.
Until next time!
Side note: I think I may have been a little… excessive… with my gardening supplies. I guess some landscaping is in order!
