Timber Bottle Mail #6

Thick clouds gathered on Timber’s skyline tonight. A lot of the stars were completely obstructed, but the night sky still felt as warm and inviting as ever.

An orange pansy had popped up in one of my gardens – the very first of its kind in Timber. It looks like all my watering is finally starting to pay off! Icon_0018_Music-note

Two new messages had been pinned to the bulletin board outside town hall today: a charming message of the week, and a notice for the flea market which I can only presume was written by Waluigi himself (Wah ha ha!).

As expected on a Monday, Nook’s turnip prices were pretty low. I did manage to get my mits on a tall lantern, though! I’m still pretty unsure what direction I want to go with my interior design – all I know is I like plants and old things, so I’m filling my storage with those for now.

I also picked up a cute frog shirt from the Able Sisters! Icon_0008_Frog

I bumped into Rodeo as I left the store. Surprisingly, his dialogue was pretty adorable! Maybe there’s a little more to him than a bull with a serious case of pinkeye…

By now I’d already finished my daily chores in Timber, so I decided to kick back and catch up with my villagers. First on the list was Bunnie, and–

Whaaaat?! Icon_0007_Pitfall

Bunnie is moving! I really didn’t see this one coming; she’s the one villager I seem to talk to daily. I tried to persuade her otherwise but she seemed pretty sure of her decision.

Good luck in your new town, Bunnie!

Next up was Derwin (ew), who was catching bugs at the back of my house.

Ugh, I already see where this is going. Give me two minutes, Derwin…

With that out the way, and my fresh… Concrete wall as a ‘reward’, I decided to check in on Baabara, who just moved into Timber yesterday. Her house has always been one of my favourites so I was excited to see it all unpacked!

She wanted me to deliver a gift to Lucy for her, all wrapped in a cute red bow! Icon_0000_Gift I obliged and was walking towards Lucy’s house WHEN

This disgusting beast came scrambling towards me! My first ever successful scorpion catch! Sorry Baabara, Lucy can wait; I need Blather’s take on this!

An oddly mundane reaction compared to the cockroach I donated in my last entry

Anyway! Back to the task at hand!

Lucy definitely wasn’t blown away by Baabara’s gift but it’s the thought that counts, right? I decided to be honest with Baabara about her reaction.

Thank goodness it wasn’t one of those offensive fern shirts, that would have been a total disaster! Baabara gifted me her Persian wall as a ‘thank you’. It’s not exactly my style but it sure is better than a fern shirt that calls you names behind your back…

Oh, a quick update on Rocco: he’s still on death’s door. Seriously dude, this is getting old now!

I finished my evening off with some light fishing before calling it a day.

I hope your week’s off to a good start!

Until next time! Icon_0027_Lucky-clover
