Part 101: Sirocco: Update 35

Sirocco's Year: Part Thirty-Five

Winter stole over Syrupleaf. We should be used to it by now, but I think we're always surprised by just how cold it gets, ha ha ha! Chance said it was 'indelibly gelid' but he's always saying weird stuff like that.

I finally ordered some cage traps to be built. Eiba's been constantly sending me reminders about those moles all year. But I was... reluctant, journal. I remember what happened last time... in the year that never was. This time we'll capture those giant moles without any deaths. I've already made IceDrake pinky-swear that she'll never go down that staircase!!! I hope it's enough!!!

Draceran came out of the carpenter's workshop eventually to show off a rather lovely hatch cover he'd made.

I also ordered some celebratory engravings in recognition of the hard work everyone's contributed to Syrupleaf. Here are two of my favourites:
