    Four day weekend, so I'm listening to podcasts and playing Sims...

    Hypatia and her points: Leonardo, Galileo, and Chin Neng

    Last time, Hypatia lived her YA and most of her adult years, and then was invited to join an archaeological fellowship out west to put her authentication skills to the test. As part of the deal, she was allowed to live on an old decaying ranch house. She and her younger boys, Galileo and Chin Neng, moved there during the winter. When spring rolled around, she and Galileo began reviving the old garden, and found some suppliers to get a cow and a couple of chickens. Although Hypatia had run a self-sustaining home during her college days, it was a strictly vegetarian affair and she was looking forward to learning some animal management. What she did not expect was that Galileo would take to farm life so readily. Although as a boy he'd seen her nuturing various tropical fruits and the like on Sulani, it never seemed to be a great interest to him. The home on Sulani was a fully restored and operational observatory, though, not a decaying farmhouse -- and Galileo took to its challenge with relish. As the year became another, Hypatia watched him ripened into a strapping young man, his day filled with feeding animals, making repairs, and turning the fruits of their labor into wine. She continued pushing him to take academics seriously, pointing out how this joint project of theirs -- a self-sustaining homestead -- was based on ecological principles, as they were trying to eliminate input/output streams and turn them instead into one ecological cycle. He needed the abstract grounding of that as well as the real-world practice. Grudingly, he accepted and would even apply to college -- but, Hypatia suspected, he was not going to join her in the ranks of white coats and academia. He relished being the husband of a homestead, and patently refused to do anything that would take him away from the horse he'd nurtured as a young foal, Firefly Serenity. "There's no place I can be since found Serenity," he said.

    Work, work, work. I switched to controlling Galileo once he hit teenager, but cheated to tell Hypatia to help Galileo with the dew collectors because the story says this is a team effort.

    Firefly turned into a beautiful stallion, and he and Galileo go riding once or twice a day.

    @BeckyI7Fan Oh no! I'm sorry that happened to your game. It's happened to all of us at some point so we know how you're feeling. You'll come up with another really good story I'm sure.🙂

    I found a race car themed set that just said 'this is a boy's room'.

    A sandy ride across Lani Saint Taz!
    Princess Roddy went outside. Tammy, his Clydesdale mare, trotted over to him. 'Feeling restless, lass?' the princess asked. Tammy stomped once. Princess Roddy smiled. 'I know just the place, Tammy, and you're going to love it!' he said, stroking his beloved horse's neck. Tammy reared up and neighed happily. The princess chuckled and mounted his horse. Soon they were on their way to Sulani.

    Once they arrived at Lani Saint Taz, Tammy looked around. 'Well, this is certainly something else!' she said, telepathically to Princess Roddy. The princess smiled. 'What are we waiting for? Let's ride, lass!' he said, climbing aboard his horse:

    Then the pair started their ride. Tammy was in awe of the scenery!

    The setting sun made it even better! Princess Roddy and Tammy headed back to the beach. Suddenly, the Clydesdale mare made a beeline for some shallow water! 'Steady on lass!' the princess exclaimed in surprise:

    cc068beaebd1d22ec27ac1152be2ddcba9425882.png
    Tammy stared at the water and her reflection for a while:
    a3eb7aedce233db14e2e2f2cdb8b07c1b9bc1a49.png
    'I wonder what this tastes like...' she thought. 'I wouldn't do that, Tammy.' Princess Roddy said to his horse, noticing she was going to attempt to drink the salt water. 'Why can't I drink the sea?' Tammy enquired. 'One, because it's a big body of water. Two, you could get dehydrated if you drink a lot of it. Small sips are ok, but it's generally not advised.' Princess Roddy replied. 'Oh, I see.' the Clydesdale mare said. The princess smiled and hugged his horse:

    After looking around, the pair rode back home to Dianthus Hall:

    When they arrived back, Princess Roddy dismounted Tammy, who then went into her stable for some food, some water and a nap. The princess smiled and went into his bedroom, where he played with Eachann and watered his plants.

    Playing on the arcade machine!
    Dianthus Hall's game room had recently got an arcade machine. Princess Roddy, Sophia, Hamish and their aunt, Shelly, all worked together to defeat a variety of enemies:

    A visit to the Albrights and a puppet show!
    Princess Roddy, his mother, Shine, and his aunt, Shelly, went over to Senbamachi in Mount Komorebi. They arrived at 6-4-1 Hanamigawa, the home of the Albrights. Princess Roddy knocked on the door. Cornelius Albright let the trio in. He and Tania Albright chuckled as Kelvin Albright, their son, ran over to the princess and gave him a hug:
    5990ce652d9f7f56eaace3a922331f8cac1d6e6f.png
    'Hello, little Kelvin! I see you're doing well!' Princess Roddy said 'I am, Princess Roddy!' Kelvin replied, cheerfully. The princess smiled and gave the toddler a gentle kiss on the forehead:

    Then he gave him a hug:

    Kelvin then ran over to Shine and Shelly, who gave him hugs too:

    After chatting, Princess Roddy went outside and set up the puppet cabinet. Then he put on a show for Kelvin and his parents. Shine and Shelly watched, too!

    Cornelius, Tania and Kelvin enjoyed that! After curtseying, the princess put the puppet cabinet away. Then he chatted to the Albrights. A bit later, it was time to go. Kelvin gave Princess Roddy, Shelly and Shine a hug goodbye:

    The trio smiled. Then they said goodbye to Cornelius and Tania, and went back home to Dianthus Hall.

    A trip to the pier!
    Princess Roddy Furystrykar, his mother, Shine Furystrykar and his maternal aunt, Shelly Heart, went to Plumbite Pier. The first thing the princess did was ride the Ferris Wheel with Shelly:

    Then he rode the 'Haunted' house ride with Shine:

    A bit later, the trio looked around. Suddenly, Princess Roddy saw Chloe Furystrykar, one of his paternal aunts. Chloe smiled and gave her eldest nephew a great, big, loving and warm hug:

    'Hello Roddy, how've you been?' Chloe asked:

    'I've been doing well, auntie Chloe! So have Sophia and Hamish!' the princess replied, cheerfully:
    5e2602c7fa49af891032e5530aefd3f464520bf6.png
    'That's good to hear!' Chloe said, smiling. She gave Princess Roddy a great, big, loving smooch on his cheek:
    2dfe5f99fd4bc10d198e83050d998eb14bb404d0.png
    The pair then chatted to each other:

    After a while, it was time to go back home to Elm Bungalow for Chloe. 'Bye, auntie Chloe!' Princess Roddy said, smiling warmly. His paternal aunt gave him a very great, big, loving hug:

    The princess watched as Chloe set off back to Elm Bungalow. After looking around some more, Princess Roddy, Shine and Shelly went back home to Dianthus Hall. They had a lot of fun at the pier!

    @Brd709 Oh no!😟 Condolences to Ryo and the whole family. You did a wonderful job writing up a tragic event.

    I was gutted when i saw Miki (Ryo's mother) completely gone from the game. She was a healthy sim alive and well sitting in the other households category. I happened to click on the family tree in game one day and poof she no longer exists. MCCC still lists Tommy as his father even though his ghost was sent to the Netherworld, luckily Tommy still appears on the family tree as a ghost.

    @BlueSeaWaves Thanks for getting back to me on how the glass roof over the barn works. Sorry it didn't quite solve the problem. But I'm guessing the horse will be all right. They can be hardy, after all.

    @Smellincoffee Enjoyed your update.

    Loved your second update, too. "Beef, it's what's for dinner. Okay, chicken it is." LOL I also really loved the Firefly series.

    @Brd709 What a lovely, yet sad, story. So glad Ryo has his grandparents to help him through this rough time.

    Oh, bummer. Best of luck in your next save.

    Loved your new update. The Tolman's are a cute family. Nice to see you back in the saddle again. ;)

    @BeckyI7Fan
    P.1287 Thank you🙂 Keisha adorable, sad to hear the save was lost.
    P.1288 Great start so far for the ABC legacy. Oof Caitlan not the trash can😆 There are various items the little ones will play in. Mine really like the kitchen cabinets at the moment
    @Smellincoffee
    P. 1287 lmao, ghost need feed sometimes too😆 Sweet, the home from RDR1/2. Those games are great but those endings leave me super sad afterwards😥 Great update with Hypatia P.1288 I love the shot of Galileo slipping in the nectar barrel and the chicken looking worried🙂 Hah, Bessie’s sideeye😆 Oh no, rip Chicken 😥
    @Brd709
    Oof😟 Poor Ryo😔 Great moment of silence before the two graduation pictures.
    Lol them both taking selfies after their I do’s😆 The funeral services was done well. Great way to handle the culling of them
    @DaniRose2143
    Orange didn’t have a bedroom😭 Definitely a boys room, really cool find! If the sims team made kits with different themes like that for kids rooms, I would buy them in a heartbeat.
    I’ve been hearing some areas have been getting snow this month, I really hope to get some this year🥲
    @DreamPrincess
    I love Tammy staring at her reflection in the water. Sulani was a great destination. Benjamin and Shine being supportive during the game session was great😁 I never saw the puppet show box in use, nice too see everyone gathered to watch. Enjoyed the update 😁
    @Ellupelluellu
    lmao what their secret they don’t need skates👀
    @GalacticGal
    No problem! Thanks for mentioning the glass roof idea, I liked how the glass roof looked, even if he doesn’t sleep under it. I’m going to keep it there😁

    Got an update. Featuring someone who I really wanted to make their appearance in this save for a while now:

    Alexis waited for a couple of seconds before giving her mother her response. Although just a couple of seconds, they felt like minutes to Julie. Finally Julie smiled when she noticed a smile form on her face, followed by her nodding her head ‘yes’. Julie brought her in for big hug. After a long long time she was delighted that Alexis finally accepted her request. GcIjW5c.png
    Julie still couldn’t believe it. She asked her if she was serious.“I am.” Alexis answered firmly, she frowned as she continued. “My ex convinced me when we were still dating.” CyLW5z3.png “Your ex? I didn’t know you were seeing someone. What happened? Why aren’t you with them anymore?” Julie had many questions but when she noticed Alexis eyes begin to tear she stopped probing that topic. “What did she tell you?” Julie asked instead. cRqjrnw.png Alexis reminisced the day she was in Chestnut Ridge. The skies were clear and there was a nice cool breeze in the air. She could see the towns entrance from where she was seated. 2WFvwcl.png “So you have 2 siblings and you don’t talk to either of them?” Catalina questioned her. HtAWoD6.png “No, I do. I’m in touch with my brother, I just, I never met my sister. She always lived somewhere else with her dad and I guess I was never interested in meeting her…” EQWdA9M.png “Doesn’t she want to meet you?” Alexis shrugged. That thought never entered her mind before. Minutes of silence went by before either spoke. “I lost my parents when I was young, honestly I hardly remember them. If I knew I had any sibling or family member out there I’d be excited to meet them.” vMnZ1Yu.png Alexis heard her clearly. “So you think I should meet her then?” She still had some doubt about it. “You don’t really have anything to lose in doing so, and if it goes well, well then you get a sister” YZi1NyR.png Thinking on what she said, Alexis figured Catalina was right. She locked eyes with her feeling a new sense of confidence thanks to her. She could only think she was lucky to have found her. HtOvi21.png After telling her mother, Alexis wondered what Catalina could be doing at that very moment. In Chestnut Ridge… “Just 5 more minutes Talladega and you’re off guard duty.” QdyPoPe.png

    Back home in San Sequoia, Colette was letting Warner in on the secret. “Why didn’t she ever tell me? Even Aaron knew, I thought we were closer than that.” Colette felt deceived by both her parents and brother. She did her best to restrain herself while speaking with her husband, the last thing she wanted was to know if Warner was in on it too. “Maybe your mother had reason to.” Warner was trying to be careful with his words, to not upset Colette. “Are you defending her? Whose side are you on?” “On yours, I’m on your side.” Warner quickly answered. That was a close one, he thought. fDXM1x0.png
    Julie returned back home past evening. She found Colette in the kitchen cleaning up. “Hey, Happy New Years. Sorry I wasn’t around to celebrate. Where is everyone?” Julie wanted to see her grandkids but it was already late. “Warner’s working out in the garage, and the kids are all asleep. Where have you been?” She was interested in hearing her excuse. Instead Julie asked to be let go so she can change clothes. Before leaving the kitchen, Julie asked if her if she would join her on a walk around. SXoPNYH.png Once in a new set of clothes Julie felt much better. Colette thought it was a bit too late for a walk, but if it would get her answers she would tag along. She tried to be patient but just 1 block from home she couldn’t help but ask again. Her mother merely rose her hand to signal ‘hold on’. zu6tMj6.png They continued walking for about half an hour before reaching the park of San Sequoia. Colette grew impatient. When they took a seat on a bench facing the lake she quickly got to the point. “On New Years Eve, Dad told me some things about you and who you were with. I want to hear it coming from you now.” Julie wasn’t sure where to start. “What did he tell you?”BU0HgJa.png “That you’re sneaking around to spend time with your daughter from your first marriage. He called her your ‘pride and joy’. I don’t care if thats true, just how come you never told me? Why’d I have to find out through him? I thought we had a better relation that that.” XFBcLYh.png Julie admitted that she wanted to, but was hesitant in case Colette wanted to meet her. If she had met Alexis before she came to the decision on her own, their first encounter wouldn’t have been genuine or favorable for either of them. First impressions are lasting impressions, after all she thought. uTGu0Ma.png Colette thought that made sense, but still. She felt betrayed by her brother Aaron, “The next I see that kid…” Julie let a soft chuckle escape her, “Don’t be too hard on him, he didn’t like keeping a secret from you. It took me a while to convince Alexis about him too.” YPJRwcy.png Colette thought it was strange that even needed convincing but from her tone it sounded like it was very stressful for her mother. Julie was afraid to ask but needed to know. “You’re not angry, are you?” Earlier in the day she was but now Colette felt calm. “Hmm let me think… you’re not holding out on any more secrets, are you? A smile appeared as she asked. Julie gladly responded ‘none, not anymore”. 0vwcIJM.png Before they headed back home, Colette asked her more about Alexis. When she was around her kids age she wondered what it would’ve been like to have an older sister. She was curious on finding out more about her. 2nRSWma.png

    @DreamPrincess
    Fun update. The puppets reminded me of the old Punch & Judy puppets from another time. Liked seeing auntie Chloe, too. Slowly, we're getting a glimpse into Benjamin's side of the family. :)

    One of Erik's six kids loved playing in the diaper pail. :open_mouth:
