Delivering Pine’s mail this morning must have been a significant weight off Pete’s shoulders! I received a few different letters, including one from my mom;
And two from Lyle after stumbling around in the King Tut mask yesterday. Surprisingly, he didn’t bother paying out for the tarantula that mauled me late last night after posting my last entry… Beggars can’t be choosers, I guess.
I ran into Joan on my way to tend my hybrid gardens by the town hall.
Her asking price was kinda steep this week, but I decided to take a gamble. I really hope I can pull this off; I think it’s about time I expanded my house again!
A pink tulip! The very first of its kind in Timber.
The weather bulletin posted at the town hall said the rainy season won’t be over for another two weeks, but I haven’t seen any signs of bad weather in Timber for the past few days. Honestly, I’d welcome a bit of rain – these flowers are a nightmare!
Timber was truly alive with the
screams chirps of cicadas marking the start of July. I was sure to net a few to donate, along with a handful of other creepy crawlies – including one particularly creepy crawly… bleugh!
I soon noticed Mint’s old plot had been filled on Timber’s map, so I headed to the coast to welcome my new neighbour.
It was Baabara, the snooty sheep, and I’m pretty darn happy about it! Baabara was a resident in my original City Folk town for yeeeaaars, so it’s nice to see her again!
Meanwhile, Rocco’s cold had returned for round three… I think it’s about time we call an ambulance.
I also met Bunnie out-and-about, who was psyching herself up for, uh, something… I truly have no idea what, but I suppose unwarranted positivity is a better option than the pit of despair she’s usually in.
I mean… Unless she was referring to the inevitable…
Aaanyway, my last stop of the day was the museum. Blathers was – understandably – as disgusted with my catch-of-the-day as I was.
Finally, I dropped into the Roost for my daily cup o’ Joe. Brewster offered me pigeon milk for the first time today, so I’m pretty sure he and I have officially reached third base…
Hope you have a great week!
Until next time!
