Animal Crossing: New Horizons - July 7, 2020

July 7, 2020
Good Evening everyone.  I hope everyone had a good Tuesday.  It was beautiful on the Island of Gnomes today.  It did not rain at all.  I was so excited about that. It was the first time I was able to dive without struggling to see in the darkness.  Today, Gulliver washed up on shore again.  I helped him find the missing parts to his communication device. I seriously think the poor thing needs to find some help.  He is super accident prone. 
I caught a couple of sharks today.  I have to say it is scary swimming and diving, and then all of the sudden you see a shark on the horizon.  I have been diligent to catch them because I do not want any of my villagers getting hurt if they go swimming. I also did a lot of preparation for the Fishing Tournament that is happening on Saturday. I made almost 50 baits and bought about four fishing rods. I am planning on making 50 more baits so I am prepared on Saturday. 
Today I bought some cool geometric socks from the Abel Sisters Tailor sh…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - July 06, 2020 - Flick Visiting

July 06, 2020,
It is time to find a new weather service. Oh well. Anyway, I hope everyone had an amazing Monday.  Today Flick came by the island to collect bugs.  I was glad it was a sunny day because the bugs were out in full force. I asked him to do some art work of a dragonfly.  I think it will be pretty to place in my attic. Anyway,  I bought a jean skirt at Abel Sister's tailors today. I thought it looked amazing with the shirt I was gifted. Tomorrow I might wear my toad hat instead with a yellow shirt and the skirt.  I will just have to wait and see what the day brings.

So today the primary activity was collecting bugs. I really avoided talking to people all day until this evening. I was able to find Filbert wearing his googles I gave him.  I just think he looks hilarious in them. He had spent some of the evening chasing bugs but after not being very successful he decided to study the flowers.  He provided me with a great tip.  Not to play tag in the dark.  He said the trees g…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - July 5, 2020 - 4th of July Weekend

July 5, 2020
Happy 4th of July weekend. Man it was crazy on the island. I think I might have found a reliable weather forecaster. If so then I am scheduled to have some shooting stars tomorrow evening around 11:30 PM.  So I am going to wait and see. Because of holiday yesterday I was so exhausted from all the events on the island that I just fell asleep. I caught several new fish this weekend. The first was the Napoleon Fish.  It was huge.  I also caught a Gigas Giant Clam. I used about 10 baits to catch the Napoleon Fish.  I think he is stunning in the coral reef area.



As you can see I am with Drift in the museum. He is always so nice.  I unfortunately was wearing my diving suit. For the 4th I decided to spruce up my look.  At the Abel Sisters Tailor shop I purchased some cargo shorts and a lacy black top.  I thought the cute was supper cute.  What do you think?


Also on the 4th I caught a Vampire Squid.  I have to say, as far as chases go the Gigas Giant Clam and Vampire Squid have been…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - July 3, 2020 - Swimming

July 3, 2020
My apologies for taking so long to write.  I haven't been feeling well. I was able to finally go swimming today.  It was awesome. I was also able to catch a lot of sea life and give them to the Blathers.  Since the beginning of July, I have the most adorable fish.  Its called the puffer fish.  I absolutely love catching them. 


I enjoy watching them breathe. They puff up and down. Anyway, yesterday Jolly Redd came by the island yesterday. I bought some art yesterday. Today when I took it to Blather's he was really excited to receive it. I thought it was gorgeous. It was a Still Life with Apples and Oranges by Paul C├ęzanne. 

What do you think of the sunflower dress I bought at Abel Sisters Tailor Shop? I love it. I just think its adorable. Needless to say, I decided to go talk to Filbert before swimming today. He was enjoying the shade of the tree and relaxing. I am hoping that since I have built some ponds on the left side of the island with some trees that my village…

Good Evening Everyone,
I know its earlier than normal for me to be sitting in my room posting on Gnomes.  Today though was long and hot.  I was shocked at how much sun we got today on the island.  Tomorrow the weather forecast is clear and sunny all day again with shooting stars around 9:15 PM.  Today I decided to take a nap and missed the 6:00 PM fountain show.  I will have to remember to catch it so I can show you it here. 
Anyway, as far as days go.  The bugs were out in full force today.  I caught a lot of bugs.  So much so I went through two nets today.  There was not much in the way of fishing either.  Drift was busy sweeping the town square this evening which was really nice of him.  I really appreciated that. I bought another pop corn machine and wrapped it up and gave it to Filbert. He was really excited about receiving it. We spent some time staring at the airport through the trees on rocking chairs this afternoon.  He fell asleep.  It was just too cute.

Later in t…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons June 29 2020 - Observation

June 29, 2020
Good Evening,
Today on the island it was cloudy and rainy most of the day. I spent my day making the entrance to my island more pleasing to the eye. When I see Leif comes by the island this week I will be buying shrubs and finishing up the entrance.  I also decided to section out everyone's houses.  I built fences so it looks like everyone has an area of the island to call their own. I also am building a new incline to connect the second level to the third level on the left hand side of the island. 
At 6:00 PM this evening I realized my fountain changed its pattern.  I tried to take a photo of it but I could not get it to turn out right.  Tomorrow I am going to take a video to show everyone on here. I think everyone will enjoy it.  It is really pretty. The bugs were out in full force today around the island. It was nice to practice catching them again. 
So after my blog last night I decided to get up and go wondering around the island.  It was raining and I started to st…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - June 28 2020 - Rain Rain Go Away

June 28, 2020
So today was a another rain day. It rained all day after being so sunny during the Bug Off.  So most of the villagers stayed in their cabins today. I started off the day on the pier trying to catch a new fish.  However, I was unlucky in that regard. 

I decided to use my ladybug umbrella. I think it really helped my green dress pop today.  The dress was given to me by Norma. She is just so sweet. So I bought some turnips today from Daisy Mae.  The turnip prices were really cheap. So I spent 70,000 bells on turnips this week.  I am hoping for some good prices this week.  On line I found a site that did the calculations of turnip prices for the week.  They can be found here.

After that, I spent the day recovering from the Bug Off. I talked to a couple of villagers and made sure to take a nap.  This evening after dinner I decided to check on my flowers.  I was excited to see the tulips came in. I wish they had bloomed for the bug off but I was happy they finally did come in.

I l…
