Life's Lesson Quest and Acorn Collection Mission



(Wooden Squarryl)



(Squarryl may be a little early with the four-leaf clover, but wishing all Farmers the best of luck!)

A new time-restricted Quest has been released in tandem with a Collections Mission.  The Reward for the Acorns Collection Mission is another Stove House Recipe in the form of the Caramel Almond Pie Recipe.  The Quest theme is the coming of Spring.  A new Farm Beauty Contest is based on Spring as well as it has a Sakura theme.  I have added a list of ALL Theme Decorations for the current contest to the end of this post divided according to the manner in which they can be obtained. In other words, current Lucky Wheel Decorations are in one section.  Decorations that can be purchased in the Market are in another section, followed by the Decorations that you can find either now or in the near future in a special sale offer.   The irony for me is that it is snowing here today and we have three inches on the ground even now!

You will need a Toy Machine to complete some of the Tasks in the traditional Quest sequence.  It is on sale now in the Machines department of the Market for 800 Coins and will be there until this quest expires.  When purchased, however, you will be required to complete it as it is an unfinished Machine.  Note that it will be needed to make a number of different Toys, so you really should buy and complete it now if you do not own one.  Furthermore, it can be difficult to find when it is not included in the regular Machine department of the Market so worth obtaining now.

Inter alia, you will need a Quince Tree and a Birch Tree.  The Quince Tree is needed to complete the Collections Mission as well as for ingredients in Dishes mandated in Quest tasks.  Both are included in special sales offers currently so if you are inclined to use real cash to purchase some Decorations that you did not buy in the past, you can get a Quince Tree and Birch Tree as well.

Life's Lesson 1
xxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Howdy, Farmer? Isn't it a beautiful day?  Winter is over now, and I'm in such a good mood.  Let's enjoy the nice weather and do some farming chores.  Come on, join me!

Life's Lesson 2
xxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Hey farmer, will you come for more stretching on the farm?  There always is work to do here.  Why don't we go to wake the trees up from their hibernation?  Let us go to say good morning to them!

Life's Lesson 3
xxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Remember the last time we were taking care of the trees I told you I made a new friend?  Do you want to meet my new friend?  But don't tell any one, okay?  I'm afraid Grandma won't let me keep him!  Promise?

Life's Lesson 4
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  I'm so happy you like my new friend as much as I do!    He's super adorable, don't you think? But remember!  We can't tell any one,  especially not Felicia.  She's a telltale!  Now let's finish our farming labours of the day.

Life's Lesson 5
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Hey, farmer!  Squarryl the Squirrel has a lot of energy.  We must feed and take good care of him!  Do you know what squirrels eat?   It seems Squarryl (like his compatriots in our garden) can eat (and will!) anything!  He's always biting my stuff.  Do you think some vegetables would be okay?

Life's Lesson 6
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  After that big meal we prepared for Squarryl, he has more energy than before!  Oh NO!  Look!  He's playing in the trees!  I'm afraid he'll fall down and get hurt!  Can you help me catch Squarryl?!  Pretty please?

Life's Lesson 7
xxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  FARMER HELP!  Felicia found out about Squarryl!  And she is super duper furious!  I don't get it.  Why is she so mad?  Oh, I know!  Let's make some delicious treats for her!  Help me!  I'm not good at cooking!

Life's Lesson Quest 8
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Farmer, I came up with a brilliant idea!  Squarryl must be quite bored of playing in the same trees!  What if we take him on a tour of the Island?  Most of the fauna there will be new and exciting for him!

Life's Lesson 9
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  So weird... Squarryl is kind of quiet lately.  Perhaps he feels tired after our trip to the Island. Maybe we can cheer him up with some nuts!  I'm not sure which ones squirrels like, so...  Let's go to gather some for him!

Life's Lesson 10
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Bags under my eyes?  Seriously?  ... Well, to be honest, I haven't had a good night's sleep since Squarryl changed.   I don't know what else I can do to cheer him up... maybe... What if we take him to play with the animals on the farm?

Life's Lesson 11
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  There must be something we are doing wrong.  I'll ask Felicia for help.  She might be annoying as an older sister but she usually has good ideas!  Let's prepare some gifts for her so she won't be mad at me.

Life's Lesson 13
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  FARMER, I am hopeless!  Squarryl the Squirrel is not getting any better at this point.  I don't want my friend to feel pain.  What can I do for him?  I will tell Grandma everything.  She might ground me, but I know she can help!

Life's Lesson 14
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Howdy Farmer!  Squarryl is fine again.  I'm super relieved.   Grandma, however, told me he got sick because he is a wild animal and must be free, not living with humans... Do we really have to say goodbye?

(Note:  People do keep squirrels successfully as pets, of course, but they feed them food appropriate to rodents and not 'people food'.  I have two Chinchillas myself.)

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
