Rainbow Trout, catching air

Well it's not working as well as I'd like but I'm plugging away.

  • Test #1 of the protein bar = a Big Fail. I will perfect it & provide the recipe.
  • The knitting is still in the promise land. Meaning it's still sitting in my bag. For me it's a mindless (relaxing) activity if you do it everyday. I'm rusty so I need to concentrate until my hands take over. Maybe I should try knitting first thing in the morning instead of at night. Something to think about.
  • Reading for other than my 'Book of the Month' has started again. Don't get me wrong, I only read books that I will hopefully enjoy, but reading without a deadline is great as well.
  • Going to bed earlier. I'm off schedule again and it's affecting me the next day. I'm tired, cranky and I find it really hard to concentrate on my work. I prefer to start working early, before the sun rises. Not 2am like in the past, more like 5:30-6am.
  • If I have an appointment, I don't rush home to get back, to work. Well, some of the time. I try to walk around, take some pictures, relax.

I have a lot to work on but it'll have to be 1 day at a time & 1 task at a time.

How is your work/life balance?

Beautiful February day

The Eternal Ones is the first book that I've read from author, Kirsten Miller. Published in 2010 by Razorbill Publishing, under the Young Readers Group.

17 year-old Haven Moore is biding time until her 18th birthday with a mean-spirited grandmother (Imogene), a passive mother (Mae) and a loyal best friend (Beau). She just has to finish high school so she can be free of the claustrophobic, small southern town where she grew up, this time around.

Since she was a little girl Haven knew that this life wasn't her first. She also knew that she was on a mission to find her soul-mate Ethan, this time around named Iain.

The only problem is Haven is sure that Iain is in New York city. A city that she's been drawn to since she was a small child. A city that eats up small town girls, like herself.

Haven makes it there, with savings she's been putting away since she was a young child. She thought it would be easy, she thought she could trust people. The only people that she can count on is her best friend Beau and herself, some of the time.

Between lies, kidnapping, fires, and her fainting spells Haven not only has to learn to trust herself but do a lot of growing up in the process.

*The one thing that bothered me about the story was how wishy -washy Haven, the main character was. One minute she knows that Iain is her soul-mate & would put her life in his hands. The next she's not sure if she can trust him and wants to run away. A lot of back and forth. A lot.

What I did like about the book was that there will be a sequel and hopefully some satisfying conclusion to Haven & Iain's story. There were also characters like Adam/"the devil" and the preacher Dr. Tidmore. We just got a glimpse of what their roles could really be.

I give The Eternal Ones 3.5 out of 5.
