It had been eight weeks since I last played in Forest, so I had a ton of weeds around town. I spent a good deal of time plucking them all.
No new animals have moved in this time, so I still have 14 villagers in town at the moment.
I connected my Game Boy Advance and made a rare trip out to the island. I was enjoying Kapp’n’s song about his sailing soul, until he mentioned a stomach full of snails. That part is a bit hard to relate to.
When I spoke to my islander Ankha, she thanked me for the spooky lamp I gave her “the other day.” It wasn’t the other day, though. It was probably years ago.
She then gave it back to me, saying it doesn’t fit her room. This cat always seems to ask for things and then gives them back. How rude.
Back in town, Kody noticed my new spooky lamp.
He said he didn’t have anything to trade for it, but he asked if he could have it. I agreed to give it to him. He then gave me a lovely lamp in return; he lied about not having anything.
I spotted a balloon present flying around, and I followed it. It appeared to get stuck on the cliff (temporarily), and I tried to use my shovel to pop it. No luck. It soon freed itself and continued flying northeast. Once it got to the train station, it flew away, never to be seen again.
I ran into Tom, and he told me he just painted my roof black. I’m okay with that. Especially around Halloween.
Speaking of Halloween, I will not be participating in the festivities tomorrow. But good luck to you if you’re giving it a go! Beware of Jack’s tricks! Happy Halloween, everyone!
