First the confession. I’ve been playing a mobile game (Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, if you must know) on my phone every day for 181 days. I’d actually tried it three years ago when it first came out, but thought it was stupid then. Now, even though I don’t always like to play it, I don’t want to delete it from my life. However, there are parts of it that are delightful, sometimes. There was a huge update today that made it unusable on many Android devices, including the tablet on which I was playing it. I’d decided that I would not download it on my phone, but I did anyway, and I am not too regretful. The update included the ability to enter the world of the animals and to have them enter your world.
My favorite character is gray cat named Raymond. He’s a bit of a snob and slightly obsessive. I think I have a crush on him. So when I was able to invite him to my house I jumped at the chance.
The photo above is him in front of a delight I forgot to mention last month. Clare sent me a fairy door that was made by a friend’s mother. I love it!
I feel guilty when I play the game because I could be reading or writing or baking or organizing but I play it anyway.
