Sick Leave

I need to apologize for the lack of updates. I've been bed-ridden with a terrible cold, so haven't been able to get much of anything accomplished in the past couple of days. However, just because the mayor was out of commission doesn't mean the town stopped moving, and I had a lot to catch up on once I was feeling fit enough to do so.

Brewster's business at The Roost has been picking up, to the point where he offered me a part-time job as a barista. My appreciation for his coffee had seemed to assure him I knew a good cup of coffee. I was a little reluctant, still not knowing much about coffee, but he needed the help, and extra money never hurts.

New HHA Rules

It was kind of a slow day today, though I'll comment on what little did happen.

Lyle, the representative of the HHA, dropped by this afternoon. Now that my home was entirely paid off, free and clear, he was inviting me to join an exclusive branch of the HHA. Instead of a simple points system based on your own tastes in furniture, they would set up themes for you to try and match, and would even consider your home's exterior in the valuation. It sounded interesting, so I signed up, though I think it'll be a long time before I actually manage to win any kind of recognition. While my exterior is finished, my interior design has a long way to go, still.

Kiki Delivers

Well, I have some good news. Kiki came through on her promise to move into town, and she's now a proud resident of Mymeara. She still has a lot of unpacking to do, but I was glad just to see her again. I was honestly skeptical if she would come, but it seems she enjoyed her vacation and her chats with me so much, she just had to become a permanent resident.

It seems that the campsite we installed really does justify its expense. Not only is it becoming more popular, but every person it convinces to move into the town is a boon that we really need to help keep moving things forward.

Art Lessons Pay Off

There were some interesting things happening in town today, I think.

The first thing is that Pietro came to tell me he'd be moving out on the 10th. I have to say, I'm honestly kind of relieved. A guy who spends every waking moment in clown makeup is just kind of creepy. I was never able to get all that close to Pietro, as I seriously felt creeped out any time I spent time with him. While it's a bit horrible of me to say about a resident of my town, I'm happy to see him go.

Dirty Jobs

Sadly, I don't have a whole lot to talk about today. But, I'll describe what little of note did happen.

At The Roost, Brewster informed me that business had been going well since it opened, and he'd be offering coffee to go if people wanted. With his shop being so close to Main Street, I imagine it'll lead to a big upturn in his customer base, since not everyone felt like they had time to sit and drink.

I also got word from Moose that he wanted to dig up a time capsule he had buried some time ago, but he had kinda forgotten exactly where. We went hunting, and dug it up near the town's notice board. Seems he had buried a tee-shirt that had gone out of style in the hopes that by the time he dug it up again, it would be back in. He had promptly forgotten what was inside of the thing. So, for my help, he gave me the shirt.

Super T&T

Figures, right after I talk about how the weather is drying up, we get the biggest storm since I moved to town. It was a fierce thing, and if not for my responsibilities to check on the town, I'd have spent the entire day indoors.

Braving the rain, I headed for the newly remodeled Super T&T. The Nookling brothers had finished their renovations, and the store was now larger than ever before, though I doubted they'd be able to expand again, as the store was eating up every available bit of land.

Coffee and a Haircut

Today was a pretty big day for the town. Though it was also big on a somewhat more personal level, as the exterior of my house is finally finished. It took a long time before I finally found all the relevant materials at Nook's Homes, but it's done, and it I think it looks great. Once I manage to push through my plans for the rest of the town, I think the mayoral mansion (as some of the residents have come to describe it, due to its size) will act as a wonderful centerpiece to the town's feel.
