Before leaving, Hook rolls wishes to teach Lyric to talk and walk. Probably he wants to make sure his daughter can get away from her mother if needed and/or call for help! He sets to work helping Lyric master the skills before making travel plans.
Hook is about ready to do some more traveling and Frances is looking forward to finding some new crops to plant. Pauline has no interest in travel and can’t possibly take time off of work, but no one can imagine Lyric being left in Pauline’s care while the responsible adults in the house take off.
Hook’s solution is to hire a butler. Jill arrives looking rather unbutlerey, but she goes right to work. Hook figures as long as she cares for Lyric and cleans the house, she can wear whatever she wants!
Lyric is such a lovely child… I just can’t imagine why Pauline doesn’t like her.
Somehow, the map still shows Lyric in the park, while Frances is carrying a Lyric like object into the Steele house. Resetsim to the rescue!
Pauline is busy fulfilling a wish to perform in front of at least six Sims, but the rest of the household heads out to the park for Leisure Day for a cookout. It is rare that any Steele experiences a rain-free Leisure Day, so they make the most of it.
All of Hook’s wishes tend to be writing related, but he finally started rolling some painting wishes too after I bought him a new easel. I decided he’s going to use the future easel since I haven’t had many Sims really use it much. He’s working on a wish to hang 15 paintings with a few more to go.
Instead of coming home for the second half of the party, I found Pauline standing outside practicing her guitar. She’s a bit behind where she should be for her current job level and she rarely puts the instrument down.
There have been rumors of an epic fight between Raymundo and Reb, but given how they spent the party (at least two times), I think their relationship is doing is okay. All of Hook’s siblings are all grown up. Smee didn’t make it, but Turk showed up prematurely bald and looking rather unhappy. Star has recently married her high school boyfriend Tristan (though he doesn’t seem as thrilled as she does)..
