Lately, I haven't been on TSR that much, and the breaks in between my Garden chapters stretch to several months, but fear not, I'm not leaving TSR or the Gardens anywhere.
Real life has simply been quite hectic: I finally graduated high school, and now I have to figure out where to go next, which is quite energy-consuming.
Another reason is that I no longer live at home, and my MacBook can't run TS3. So the few times I have been able to play have been when I have been visiting my fiancé, or when he has visited me...
So you will probably see me on TSR every now and then, hopefully more often than during the past 6 months...

It's been a week since we passed March 28 2011, the official anniversary of the Garden story. What a long way this story, and the family, have come! Who would've thought that my little experiment with writing a storytelling legacy would grow to this extent. 48 chapters already, and we're at the dawn of sixth generation, the F generation... Only 21 more to go!
At this point I would like to thank all my readers, your comments make the writing even more fun, this story wouldn't have come this far without your support! Also, I would like to thank my mother for the help with writing and screenshots, after all, the Gardens wouldn't be here without her, being my mother's sim family.
Credit goes also to the Sims Design Avenue for the Galaad world that has offered a great home for Cherry and her descendants.
It has been a great ride, I hope to get you many more chapters of this crazy family :)
Happy Birthday to the Gardens!

And no, I wasn't talking about my own look but my mini-page's... I hope you find it nice, although it is far from finished, we'll see how the page will look once I have renewed my banner and all that ;)
I'd love to hear if you people have any comments or suggestions considering my page or anything at all..

It was in May when I noticed that I had crossed the 10k pageviews on my minisite and now, about two and half months later I have crossed the 20k pageview line... It makes me feel very warm and fuzzy that you people find my minisite so interesting that you visit it so many times in such a short period of time. I can hardly thank you enough but big hugs to everyone! <3

I promised you the Garden Family tree and here it is. The red line is the heir-line and thus you can see that the next heir is Broccoli.

Last night I and my mum had intention to go and continue decorating our huge project: Summer Estate, which is our entry to the Super-Mansion Challenge. We have been building it in Garden Valley, where Asparagus Garden and his descendants live, which proved to be our not-so-best idea. At first everything goes well and we play the Gardens for a while but then the game starts shutting down. It has happened quite a few times before so I wasn't worried, I just relaunched the game and went back to the Gardens. The same thing happens, not just once but every time I try to go to the Edit Town mode or after couple minutes play. At that point I started to reach a nearly panicking state, because I thought that maybe the entire game was bugging, but after what I found out I hoped out that it had been that easy...
It seems like the whole Garden Valley has become some what corrupted for some very strange reason, since I don't use any .package CC or mods. The other neighborhoods work perfectly smoothly so I have been thinking that maybe I should move the Gardens to a new, clean neighborhood. But then I realized that it will be a lot harder than I thought. How can I move them if I can't go to the Edit Town mode?! One possibility is of course that I go and save the current heiress'(we are in the C generation already, I write slower than we play) looks and personality, write some kind of disaster that kills off her entire family and destroys the whole Garden Valley(how convenient that the Ambitions EP will give us the earthquakes) and recreate her in a whole new neighborhood after reinstalling the game.
We have spent this entire day to redownload all the CC we want to have after the big reinstall, because I fear to launch the game since I don't know how buggy it will be today...
I have couple things I could try before removing the entire Garden Valley so there is a still some hope left... But you shouldn't be afraid, the Gardener's Dream will be continued(I'm currently working on the chapter 11, should be out this weekend)
