July has been beautiful so far. The weather out where my parents live is usually much hotter and sunnier than in St. John's, so I'm making the most of it. I spent most of yesterday outside on the deck, just kind of relaxing and chatting with my mother. I did quite a bit of knitting too. This roll of yarn is almost finished, but I have another one to use as well. When this scarf-thing is complete, I will have finished my first knitting project. I have a lifelong habit of starting things without following them through to completion, so I'm really stoked be halfway through this. One small step, so on and so forth.
The mini-vacation has been fantastic so far. Besides chilaxing in the sunshine I've been to the graveyards to visit the grandparents, helped mom and dad around the house, been shopping with my mother, and renewed my driver's license. Tomorrow I'll start painting the trim in the porch and kitchen, as well as helping my mother to go through the things that have been packed away in storage.
The NaBloPoMo theme for July is routine. There must be a zillion things and ways to write about something that seems so simple on the surface. I don't want to spend too much time online now, but I will have to check out the other blogs on the blogroll soon. I'm pretty intrigued about reading other bloggers' thoughts on the theme. As for me, routine is something I've been trying to break lately. I'm trying new hobbies and exploring new places. Right now though, I'm going to go get ready for bed, as I'm having trouble concentrating on this post. More confused rambling will follow in Day 3.
