(That was a fiasco - Aubree somehow switched places with her father when I moved him back into the household. Mom was still standing by her desk, ready to help with the homework, and looking sort of stunned. ('Where did she go? She was just right here. Kids!') Aubree was at the Landgraab mansion, looking for the non-existent cherry tree.) I know I've found them before (when I was looking for snapdragons). I finally gave up and downloaded the tree from the gallery.

There are cherry trees by the Raffia Quinta lot in Oasis Springs. Another place you can get some harder to find produce (like blackberries) is the produce stall in San Myshuno. Carl's Sims 4 Guide has a really good page all about gardening with a list of where to find plants: The Sims 4 Gardening Plant List, Fertilizer, and Grafting Plants.

You can also buy seeds in the city where they sell produce. I do that all the time buy the cherry seeds there.

I was using Carl's guide, and wasn't finding the trees where they were supposed to be. I tried first with Makenzie, and assumed that since she'd previously lived in Oasis Springs, she shouldn't need to wait for plants to spawn, but apparently, it doesn't work that way. Then, I had the boyfriend, who was still living in Oasis Springs, look, and he did find spawning plants, but no cherry trees in the locations on Carl's map.

Totally a different subject - I finally had a kid go through the 'unbearably sad' phase, and it was adorable. The kids are so cute in their little bear costumes.

Plant spawning in Sims 4 can be a real pain. I think it took about four Sim days for the cherry tree to mature near the household I'm playing now (she's on the Raffia Quinta lot I mentioned). That's one good thing about the produce stalls in San Myshuno. I wish we had regular stores in Sims 4 though. I miss that. And right now harvestables are broken for being sold on retail lots, which is super frustrating.

I've never had a problem using that guide from Carl's, but I haven't used it a long time either though, because I've played so long now I pretty much know where I need to go to find things.

Mike Myers is attempting numerous times to hit on my simself. However, for the both of them, it means numerous times hiding in bed under the sheets in their room. Dana charmed my simself and Alice Cooper was caught crying in my simself's walk in closet.

You know, from this post forward in this thread, I will address my simself as me, I and myself, because it's just getting tedious to ad nauseum points. Besides, you know it's not really me when it involves my sims. I will even address the neighborhood being played.

In Newcrest, things aren't so rosy for myself. After much winning over of Dana Carvey, Mike Myers flirts with Dana, causing a rift between the two of us. Don't look now, but Jon Lovitz might have reason to hurl if Mike Myers keeps flirting with Dana Carvey. (Jon Lovitz was one of a few people Dana worked with. IRL He told a gross joke to Jon and he remembered Jon honking for half an hour.)

Also, I was at the Humor and Hijinks Festival in San Myshuno. Jamie Hyneman was at the bar and Adam Savage sold t-shirts and explosives. Naturally, Adam Savage was in his element of selling explosives at a festival for comedy.

Either way, I normally IRL don't consider the act of kissing someone's hand to have any romantic or sexual connotation. According to my heritage, my family considers it a sign of dignified respect. Oh, well...whatever. I guess some things are lost in translation when it comes to gestures.

Back to San Myshuno...Me and Mike Myers set off a Roman Candle and we ended up crispy for the duration of the festival. But it was nice to see Adam and Jamie taking time off from their work with the Planetary Society CEO and his fellow scientists.

I guess it was interesting. I also replaced the walk in closet with a dresser so Alice Cooper couldn't hide among my mini skirts and neck ties, crying how heartbroken he is. It's kind of creepy hearing a 70-year old man cry in my wardrobe.

I'm getting too sentimental in my middle age. There was a time when I wouldn't have thought twice about killing off an unneeded Sim (and even made buyable fire to get the job done more efficiently), but I have to confess: I haven't deliberately killed a Sims 4 Sim yet.

I brought in Drake, who had the romantic trait, for the sole purpose of sweeping Aubree off her feet and making a baby. I'd planned to drown in him a pool, but he seemed like a good guy, so I just moved him out. He sent his kid a gift when he was born, and the kid calls him every once in a while. Meanwhile, Aubree's mom, Makenzie, apparently passed to the great beyond, but is still spamming her with invites. Even the ghosts are obnoxious in this game.

As for the kid, Baylor, I'd planned the criminal track for him (just because I haven't played that), but he's such a nice boy. He completed three of the four child aspirations before aging up, and as a teen, he's already achieved the 'maximum body potential' of the bodybuilder aspiration and just needs to get to level 10 in fitness to complete it. And the school gave him a cute little bunny statue in recognition of his academic achievement. He seems to like it. I mean, how can a criminal have a bunny? He's looking more astronaut, now.

(Those school projects are a pain - they always seem to be assigned on the worst possible day, when everyone is stressed or short on sleep. But, I love that moment when the kid and parent finish and stand there with that, 'Cool, look what we just made' expression.)

Another random: I had that odd glitch in which you can't save because a Sim is aging up, but none of the Sims in the household were aging up, nor was anyone in their contacts list. I always save when I put my Sims to bed, and I just waited until morning, and was able to save. I'm playing with aging on for all Sims, and I think some random person on the far end of the lot must have decided to age up on their property. (And probably got a sad because no one in the house cared about their birthday.)

Uh as you know, I have two saves, a 'true reality' and an 'alternate reality' or alternate timeline. I have myself sim in there with her husband and a bunch of kids they had all at once, different from their real reality counterparts.

I decided to take the vanilla version (no traits, ect) of my favorite Sim Henry, and roll him back to toddler, give him his now dead father (he's dead in the normal reality) and give him the mother he never had (she never existed, that is to say, she died when he was a child. His father was created when Henry was already an adult).

Anyway I've been playing the toddler version of him and of course it'll change the outcome of his life and he wont marry the same sim or have the same kids. I usually find toddlers a bit annoying to play even in TS4 but little Henry has been a delight to play because I know who he will become. Its also so nice to have Hugh, Henry's father back. I really liked him as an elder and now he's a young adult! I like doing this in my game. Playing totally different realities/timelines with the same characters. (But only the really special sims, not all of them)
