splitting peas...
We woke up this morning to the drizzly kind of rain that promises to stick around all day. Ah, fall in North Carolina. I remember coming to NC for college and being amazed at the number of days in a row it would rain, nonstop. As a Florida native, I was used to a 20 minute shower in the afternoon and an occasional thunderstorm or tornado. But the drizzle was entirely new. I learned to love the coziness of being inside while the dreariness ran on outside. Part of that is a cup of tea and toast, and another is a warm bowl of soup.

And so tonight, we're having split pea soup. Yum!

Dad told me once...
...that the older you get, the faster time goes by.

Well, here I am on the cusp of 30 (gasp!) and can attest to the validity of that statement. The last few months have flown by at a speed only rivaled by a Mercedes McClaren on a test track with the Stig at the helm. Three months in the new job, and I’m just getting to the point where I feel like I have the energy and head space for projects again. Time is at a premium now, in a way it’s never been for me, and I find the need to carefully choose what I want to read, watch, make, research, or do to be a bit of a challenge. A dabbler by nature, I need to have several things going at once. Shoving that all into the four hours of free time I seem to have a day is a bit insane. So I can read while I exercise, and listen to books on tape while I make the bank run at work, knit while I surf the internet or sew while I watch movies, etc. Does all this multitasking take away from the enjoyment of each of the individual things? Or am I just naturally fidgety?
