After dinner Pawel starts a new screenplay called, Twilight Boulevard and Fortuna goes to play with her toys for an aspiration requirement. She dreams of becoming a famous painter someday and knows that she will have a big learning boost if she can complete her childhood aspiration to be an Artistic Prodigy.

Those toys can be painful!

“Ow, my eye!”

Rosabelle tends the garden and harvests the lily plant, which she sells for §72. Their funds are now §39,446 simoleons.

Rosabelle has been working on her garden and researching gardening on the computer and has come up with a plan to increase their revenue from their garden. She has recently learned about a technique to splice together two types of plants to create a new type of plant. Her research also concluded that if she could splice the correct plants together she could create the exotic dragon fruit, which all the best bakeries demand a steady supply of, that she could sell crops of for thousands of simoleons at a time!

She has also noticed that the plants in the planters do better than the ones planted in the ground, they don’t need to be watered or weeded as often. However a large garden planter, of which she needs at least 2 because she plans to grow at least 8 dragon fruit plants, cost §200 simoleons each! Pawel’s handiness skill is quite good now and Rosabelle thinks that investing in a woodworking bench (§750), while having an initial high cost would pay for itself after a few uses. Pawel crafts 2 garden planter (§17ea) for Rosabelle on the new bench to test it out. Their funds are now §38,662 simoleons.

Fortuna goes to bed while Pawel is crafting on the woodworking bench and Rosabelle is researching gardening on the web to get to level 5 in order to be able to graft plants. When Pawel is finished with the planter he goes to look for Rosabelle and spend some quality time with his wife.

They flirt and Pawel suggests they woohoo, Rosabelle is very excited.

They hit the sheets and we all know what happens at this point.

    Does Fortuna have the clumsy trait? Those bills are really reasonable, for such a nice house. And the pictures they took look great the way you arranged them over the TV. Once she can graft plants, if you have one at higher quality, that really unlocks the ability to increase their quality, that will be great and you’ll start getting a lot of money for the produce.

      No clumsy trait, she is creative which might actually make her a little awkward.
      The snapgradons which she is planing to graft to are already at good or great quality, I can’t remember, and they will definitely sell for a good price once the harvest is ready. She got to grow some first though!
