Spades Klondike #BGsCreations

Hello. My name is Spades Klondike. I am a creative loner that loves the outdoors and collects things. I have volunteered to accumulate 500 thousand simoleons, although there are a few rules I must follow. If you would like to read the contract I signed you can view it by looking at Rosebud 500K Solitaire by EuphorialQueen. You might think I am taking on more than I can handle but you don't know me yet, do you?

I'll be posting my journal entries here.

Thanks Ladies  Heart

Home Lot: Bargain Bend, Willow Springs

Highlights Week One:


There is no time like the present, might as well get started. Luckily, I just happen to have these tools in my pocket....hmmmmm....I don't remember this dress having pockets.


Whoa....will you look at that! A rare fossil and not a bad chunk of change! I spent most of the day "viewing" plants, there is not a single thing to harvest. I had planned on eating most of what I picked and planting a specimen one my home lot.  It costs to cook at the grill in the park, I really want to spend as little as possible. I heard someone caught a strawberry in box while fishing, maybe I'll give that a try.


Late in the afternoon I ran into a nice man who had just made some veggieburgers. "Help yourself" he said. Believe me I did! Food never tasted so good. I am exhausted and dirty. This is a bit more difficult than I expected.


On the way over to my home lot I ran across this funny looking log. Frogs! Awwww, they are quite cute in a slimy sort of way. I found several. Nice specimens. They breed nicely. This should help supplement my income.


I didn't make it to my home lot.


Bright and early the next morning I did find a harvestable plant. I went to my home lot and planted one fruit and ate the rest.


I've spent most of my time collecting frogs, gems and treasure boxes. The boxes always contain cute little figures. Everything,except a new plant variety, is sold immediately. There is a lovely paddle boat that travels up and down the river. I would like to go for a ride. I must remember to look for the ticket venue.


My garden is coming along nicely.


Since I love the outdoors and being alone, my spirits are up but the lack of food and sleep is really starting to take it's toll.


I  almost made it to the sofa in the top floor of the gym. The floor is really not that uncomfortable, when your unconscious.


I took a break from collecting to do a little socializing and skilling at the library.


Willow Springs has a really nice neighbors. Jez...there are a lot of them, always milling about and wanting to chat....it can make a girl tense and on edge but they are always willing to share free food.


Washing up in the public sinks works pretty good. I like the library. The gym is too crowded. People are always walking in on you when you try to take a shower and such.


The library is also a great place to catch some  Zs. There is nobody around from about 10pm to 6am.


This is just strange, even for Willow Springs.


I noticed a beautiful oversized tree down the block from my home lot. I met Chaim Hannah. He told me to water the tree and talk about things with it and to wait. I asked him what he meant and he told me I would know when I saw it....he is a strange man....stranger danger, if you know what I mean.


It's almost been a week. Thank the Plumbob! The library is really starting to get crowed now.


The bill notice finally arrived. I have accumulated 3,775 Simoleons. Minus the bills leaves me 3,673 S to spend on my lot. I have my wishlist ready. Can you guess what the first thing I am buying is??


Here is what my home looks like. I am so proud of myself for making it this far. I have a tent, fire pit,toilet,sink,curbside trashcan,easel,bonsai plant,a floor lamp,stump stool, woodworking table and my weekly marker: Bearly Gnome. All were bought with 465 Simoleons to spare. A nice garden patch is in the back of the lot. Don't worry, that is not a housemate sitting by the fire. Just a friend visiting, I told you the neighbors were chatty. She called, I didn't know how to say no but I am gonna learn fast.

I love your sense of humor. That was a really fun read. Going in game now to create my own sim. Maybe I'll be brave enough to share my progress. It won't be nearly as entertaining I'm sure.

Have fun! thumbs up

Week 2 to Week 9 and a half-ish highlights:


Here I am with my pet. I love it. I am not exactly sure what it is but it's mine. I feed it and pet it and play with it. I am sure it loves me....ummmm...not just the smell of me. I did finally purchase a fridge and stove/oven. I must admit is sure is nice to have a home cooked meal. Tasty indeed, even when it is made by me.



Gardening is very time consuming but I have maxed the skill and now can put out fires on my lot with ease.


I went camping. I didn't see anything in the "fine print" of the contract about Granite Falls being off limits. I collected more gems, metals, plants and insects. Fun times!


Honestly things are a blur, I seem to be zipping around the lot at a super fast speed. Bills come, I pay them, then new stuff appears on the lot. It's pretty awesome.  Around week three a small room appeared and my sink,shower and toilet were moved into it. It's very cute and does help me feel better when I use those facilities when guest are visiting. This is a picture of me sitting on my brand new sofa watching a TV. The food channel of course, plumbob forbid I just set and do nothing....skilling, collecting, skilling, collecting....thank goodness there is no way for me not to sleep....is there???


This little gizmo is super cool. I use it to analyze plant and fossil samples. I make lovely prints but I have never seen one....they disappear instantly.....cha ching cha ching....that's all I hear around here.


Here is my home around the end of week 5. I love the outdoors!


I had a "friend" call and insist on coming by for a visit. I sold her painting! LOL....now that was funny. She left. If you let your eyes drift to my garden in the background, you will see that my pet died. It lived for a glorious 6 weeks. I think that is some kind of record lifespan for it, at least that is what I am led to believe.


If you want to know where I heard such a rumor, it was from my penpals. I have several and the postcards to prove it.


I see I am not the only one to sign a binding contract. Jez...there is a sucker born every minute.


I had another friends stop by, a friend with benifits, if you get my meaning. He has asked that I not use his real name so lets call him Loverboy. Believe me, the name fits!


Look what popped up on my lot after last weeks bill arrived. Cool! To infinity and beyond!!


I visited the big park in Oasis Landing and ran across this old mine shaft. I took me several scouting expeditions before I found the secret area. There is a wooden toilet in there that came in really handy! I found a few gems and metals. No plants that were new. There must be some fish but I was dead tired. I traveled home and collapsed. Don't be alarmed. It happens a lot.


Here is my total so far. Not too bad, for not having an actual job.

Edit:

Here is the week and youth potion counter.

Thank you ladies Smile

I'm trying to decide which way to go next with her. Job? No job? Will see. I am sooooo glad we do not have weather in this game! The main problem I have is that she gets the stranger danger moodlet when working in her garden. There is a steady stream of sims up and down the sidewalk. I put a fence up and will see if that helps her. I hadn't used a fence before and it took me a while to realize that you put a wall up first and add the fence to it. scratch She also gets the annoying bear moodlet while at home. One of the locals must moonlight as a bear in GF.

Week 10 to 14 Highlights:


I've been reading up on herbalism. It's quite interesting. I am at a skill level 4.


I took another trip to Granite Falls. I collected a lot of microscope samples, gems, minerals and became friends with Imani Evans, she is hermit. She is pretty easy going and insane.


I've started practicing my violin in the garden. Imani gave me the idea, remember she is insane but I swear the plants improved. I've also gained the Super Green Thumb trait. That really helps cut down the time I spend maintaining the garden.


Imani called a couple weeks later and wanted to check up on my plants. We had a nice visit. I tried calling her a few days later and she passed away. Too bad. I'll miss her.


I've been playing for tips at the local night club. I met Matias Amador. He is my biggest tipper. So....


I invited him over to go for a ride in my rocketship.


I love to cook. Food is one thing that doesn't automatically disappear on me after I make it.  I have mastered the skills of gardening, cooking, and handiness.


Here is a photo of Huy Walton. He is very kissable. You can never have too many "friends".

I've completed the Freelance Botanist (gained the Naturalist trait) and the Curator (gained the Appraiser trait) aspirations.


Slowly gaining towards my goal. How many youth potions do you think it will take to get to final total? 500,00? Possibly!

I really enjoy Granite Falls with just one sim. I have always taken a household of eight before.

Awe, I like the hedges you used for walls.
Reminds me of childhood days when we used to play just like that in my parent's garden.

Nice progress!

Thank you Lionpaws! I am really enjoying her living outside. She did build a basement and plans to have a shop of some kind. Hmmmmmmmmm....wonder what she will sell. scratch

The simoleons are starting to roll in now and I am hoping for quicker progress towards her goal.

Week 22


Wow! I've been so busy writing books, gardening, painting and collecting that I've been too pooped to make a journal entry. Writing books, gourmet cooking and painting have allowed me to pack on the pounds. Time to blow the dust off the treadmill!


A list of my traits.




List of aspirations completed.


Week counter and youth potions (22/9)



I've hit the halfway mark and I guess I should think about getting a job and keeping it. I've had several jobs but quit after the first day.
