Summer Solstice 2017

The other night, Vivian suggested a new public works project (PWP): the statue fountain!

Vivian: Like a...? Hmm. Oh, I know! A statue fountain!This is what the statue fountain looks like. I know it fairly well, because there are many of them in the infamous Aika Village.

The statue fountain PWP: 88,000 bells.

And I just have to say, it’s about time Vivian suggested a PWP! That’s the main reason I invited her into town, because I needed several snooty PWPs suggested. Well, better late than never. I like the statue fountain, and the price is very reasonable too. So I may consider adding one to Forest at some point.

I received two items I ordered in the mail recently, a blue cap and some sporty shades. I may wear this outfit for much of the summer.

It’s also the longest day of the year, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf celebrates the summer solstice by making the sun stay out all day (and night) long today. What a bright idea.

Isabelle: Hello, Mayor! Today is the Summer Solstice, so don't expect to see the moon at all tonight!
But the sun being out all day shouldn’t keep the moon from appearing.

She handed out some ladder shades for the occasion. But I was already wearing some shades, so I didn’t need them. Anyway, there was also a standee for the summer solstice at the plaza, so I stuck my face into it.

The extra daylight was confusing Bob, who didn’t know if he should be sleeping or eating.

Bob: Umm... I don't know if I should be waking up or going to bed. Should I be snacking or snoozing right now?

I spotted a balloon present up in the sky, so I got my slingshot out and shot it down. It contained a rocking chair.

As for bank account balance, I’m very close to reaching my goal. In fact, I should reach 100 million by Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Boots’ Big Bug-Off

The Bug-Off insect-catching competition was held today, but I played too late to participate. However, I was able to catch the winners’ ceremony. Boots won the contest with a spider, believe it or not! Rolf finished in 2nd place, and Bob was third.

One of my initiatives today was to work a shift at the Roost. But since today was an event day, I couldn’t work at the Roost.

Barista Booster Initiative: There's nothing like waking up every day to some extra cash! Pick up a part-time job at the Roost.After 8:00, I went to Club LOL to enjoy some live music. Once again, two animals (Tom and Dizzy this time) were sitting on opposite sides of the club.

After stopping at the Emporium to order a couple of items, I went out to the island. I did some fishing and some bug-catching, as I tried to earn a little extra money.

I caught a blue marlin! What a true darlin'!Once I returned to town and sold my catches, I found an extra 165,000 bells in my pockets. I then put that money into the bank. I’m only 350,000 bells away from reaching my goal! I think I should be able reach it by next week! ๐Ÿ™‚

Alex from Rose, Hunter from Pearton, and Ale from Hidden have recently visited my dream town. Thanks for stopping by!

Camp Like an Egyptian

Last night, I went to visit Boots inside his house. He was actually asleep, as he was standing up. Of course, I woke him up. ๐Ÿ˜›

Boots: ...Zzzz... Whaaa...?!Today, I was surprised to find Ankha at the campsite once again! She was just here last week! This makes four times that she has camped out in Forest, and all four of those times were times that Forest was already full.

Ankha: Hey there, I'm Ankha. I'm just in Forest camping for a little while.I noticed that some of the bushes in town are blooming now. This little yellow butterfly seemed to enjoy the flowers.

Especially since Aurora wasn’t very far away. The gift was a rainbow tee, and Aurora put it on right away. In fact, she was still in sight as I told Camofrog the news.

Aurora: Really? Aurora already started wearing it? I guess I must have done a great job!

As I was wrapping up my game, I heard a balloon present flying overhead. I got my slingshot out and shot it down. I found a modern chair inside.
