Remodeling The Outside
Lot: The Capehart Homestead - Michelle, Jessie, Gertrude, JonLuc, Molly and Lovelle
Last Visit: The Kittens Continue
Hello. I am Gertrude, one of Chevy and Kirstee Strickland's girls. My parents passed away recently and I am feelin' a little down. Care to sit a few? I could really use an ear.
Hey, made some hot chocolate. Git yourself some, the cups are on the counter. Well I guess I don't have any excuse to feel low, even though mom and dad are gone. Life didn't owe them anything. They had a rich and full existence, gave to everyone who stepped across the threshold of thier door. Ah. Sometimes I wish I had that same feeling with Jessie, but it just isn't there. Jessie and I are a zero bolt couple.
Jessie tries hard enough for us. I guess the main difference between my marriage and mom and dad's is that...well...Jessie is a snow leopard, where I am not. When I first came here, we lived mostly outside and I thought that was really different. I liked it. To Jessie it was like coming home again. We graduated from Sim State, and he came home to normalcy for him. For me it was a whole new life, very different.
Jessie shut down Tryce Capehart's home business. Tryce is Jessie's dad, he is gone too. Buried on the mountain here on the property. See the building in the picture? It is the back side of the kitchen. Yeah. Something happened there. (Editor - The custom content the snowleopard liar was built from was not compatible with TheSims2 Expansion Pack Seasons.) Jessie and I decided to build a new home, and the home business just would not fit in with that.

The new house is nice, it makes both of us happy. I have a roof over my head, and that of my children, and Jessie has plantlife inside of the house that he so loves. We managed to build it around a huge tree, and of course, we have lots of plants inside. We built the deck right off the pond at the bottom of the mountian so Jessie can still admire it and fish in it, and I can relax in one of the deck chairs and enjoy the view.
Oh how Jessie loves to fish, and eat the fish! He has a silver badge in fishing. More power to him, I say. I am so glad he has found something to relax him. He is such a hard worker. He is now working as a celebrity lawyer.
My oh my. I never thought a snowleopard would ever get so corporate. Well, he became a lawyer after he reached his lifetime want of making 100,000 simoleons.
After that happened, Jessie got the job as a lawyer, then realized how human his existance was coming. That is when he started the fishing, and yes, gardening in the back yard. He has some tomato plants back there and an citrus tree. They are doing pretty well. He has also determined that he is going to start a string of business dealing with recreation and outdoor activities. He opened the first and only ice skating rink in Prosperity Falls. (Jessie's new LTW after reaching 100,000 simoleons is to own 5 top rated businesses).

Isn't it a fine facility? Jessie has hired one employee. A retiree that makes good coffee working for Jessie as a barista. I can just imagine now Jessie having a big payroll in the future.
What about me and the kids? Ah. Funny you should ask. Our first one, Jon-Luc had a birthday, he is now in elementary school and rides the bus every day. He finally got an A on his report card. We were proud.
Yes, he is a good looking boy. Inherited his grandma's blonde hair. Michelle. Eh, she loves the deck chairs outside as much as I do, but she takes it a step further and sits out there no matter the weather. Even in the snow.
I don't see how she does it. There were two additions to the family, (cheesecake) twin girls, Molly and Lovelle.
They are fine girls. I am not sure, but I think I am pregnant again. (Editor - Risky woo-hoo premium...no chimes and no option of try for baby. Adds spark and interest to the challenge for me - ASimWen)
Did I tell you? We saw our first snow here in Prosperity Falls in decades, the weatherman says. We built a snowman in the back yard, and had a nice little visitor come to see him.
It was wonderful, almost as if the little penguin was actually talking to the snowman.
Well, I guess that is all the news. Perhaps I will feel better next week. I don't know if I feel so down because of things that are happening, or if it is hormonal. Only time well tell. Thanks for coming over. I really appreciate it.
