As a young adult, Joshua has continued his habit of gardening in his underwear/pyjamas...
He was due to graduate today, so Jo made a fresh batch of pancakes for the two of them
When they got back from graduation, Joshua went back to his gardening without bothering to take off his graduation robes
While Jo proceeded to get cat hair all over her best clothes by fussing Smudge
Later that evening the two of them went down to the Bistro where Jo worked for a celebratory meal
Afterwards, while Jo went home, Joshua nipped across to the grocery shop to pick up some more seeds
Before spending an hour or so fishing in the main park
On arriving home, Jo realised that Smudge's litter tray needed cleaning out
As morning dawned, Smudge entertained himself by playing with his catnip mouse as he waited for Jo & Joshua to wake up
Jo and Joshua shared a yummy breakfast of pancakes
Before Joshua got on with his gardening, he planned to make a good income from this
Smudge meanwhile had discovered the small pond out the back and entertained himself by fishing in it
Even going completely underwater to grab a particularly succulent looking fish
Joshua didn't even blink an eyelid when Smudge got into a fight with some small creature he'd been stalking right next to him...
Jo had been busy inside trying to upgrade their small tv, without much success
After a while she gave up and did the laundry instead
Played with Smudge for a while
Before repairing the shower that Joshua had just broken
And of course mopping up the resultant mess!
Joshua had received a call from the Bistro asking if they could buy some of his ingredients and when he took the requested items down he was thrilled to be given special instructions for growing cheese and egg plants
He went over to the grocery store straight away to pick some cheese and eggs to try this out
On his way back, he noticed Tamara's father, Max Fields-Vamp outside the Bistro and stopped to speak to him
They had a long discussion about books
And Joshua talked at length about how much better his house here was than back in Riverblossom Hills
Back home, Jo discovered that Smudge had picked up some fleas during his excursions outside and had to give him a special bath to get rid of them
She then gave him lots of fuss to make up for the indignity of the flea bath
Unfortunately, after dinner that night, the dishwasher broke, leaving Joshua to wash the dishes in the sink
The next morning Jo got to work cleaning up the mess and fixing the dishwasher
Whilst Joshua went outside to plant his new seeds
And harvest his existing plants
He then spent his evening down at the local park fishing
Before making it home for dinner with Jo
Challenge notes: so I've decided that Joshua's hobby is going to be fishing, it doesn't fit brilliantly with the coach potato and bookworms traits, but it's quite a solitary hobby for a shy loner and it fits how I see him!
