Listening To…
Friday I saw a post by Kathy @ Bermuda Onion where she mentioned a book by Kate DiCamillo which is the last book in a 3 book series. Since I already book #1 Raymie Nightingale (without knowing it was part of a series) I decided I’d also listen to books 2 & 3. So as soon as I finish the last 2 hours of my current listen, I’ll be starting book #2 which is Louisiana’s Way Home and then listen to Beverly, Right Here.

Watching…
I watched the finale of Big Brother and was a bit sad about who won. I’m so excited that all my favorite shows are coming back on, it seems like the finales were a year ago. I watched the first show of This Is Us and was lost during the whole show wondering who the heck those people were. I got it at the end, at least I thought I did, but now I’m wondering if I still am missing something. New Amsterdam also aired it’s new season and I loved episode #1

Guardians of Being by Eckhart Tolle
Illustrator: Patrick McDonnell

Hardcover: 128 pages
Publisher: New World Library; Illustrated edition (October 1, 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1577316711
ISBN-13: 978-1577316718

This wonderfully unique collaboration brings together two masters of their fields, joining original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. Every heartwarming page provokes thought, insight, and smiling reverence for all beings and each moment.

More than a collection of witty and charming drawings, the marriage of Patrick McDonnell’s art and Eckhart Tolle’s words conveys a profound love of nature, of animals, of humans, of all life-forms. Guardians of Being celebrates and reminds us of not only the oneness of all life but also the wonder and joy to be found in the present moment, amid the beauty we sometimes forget to notice all around us.

Thoughts
This is a very calming book. It is full of messages of how everyday interactions with our pets can be the best part of our day.

It teaches us to live in the present like our pets do. They don’t dwell on the past, they live in the moment. We can make a habit of enjoying our pets, nature, and the people in our lives and to push the negative thoughts from our minds.

I loved the illustrations by Patrick McDonnell!

I’m a dog lover and I very much try to live my life calmly, and I enjoyed this book very much.

The Art of Racing in the Rain

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Narrated by Christopher Welch

Audible Audiobook
Listening Length: 6 hours and 56 minutes
Program Type: Audiobook
Version: Unabridged
Publisher: HarperAudio
Audible.com Release Date: May 13, 2008

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition. He sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life’s ordeals.

On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny’s wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoe, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoe at his side.

Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life…as only a dog could tell it.

Thoughts
Anyone who knows me knows that I love dogs. I really can’t believe I missed this book when it was released, or since.

I absolutely loved Enzo and Denny! I loved that Enzo could understand what humans were saying and that although he could talk in his head, he couldn’t make the words come out of his mouth.

The story starts when Enzo is just a puppy and follows him throughout his life. The bond between him and Denny was so touching, and later when Eve and Zoe came along the relationships with them were too.

Enzo only wants the best for his people and does everything he can to help them. His favorite thing other than eating of course is speeding along the track with Denny.

I don’t want to give much away, but Enzo knows things that he wishes he could tell them, and he does what he can to protect them when they need it.

There was one part of the book when things looked very sad/bad for Denny, but with the light bulb moment of  someone also trying to help Denny, Enzo saves the day. That part was amazing, and I wish it was an actual thing.

This book sent me on a roller coaster ride of emotions, I had all the feels listening to this.

I didn’t see the movie when it came out because I wanted to read the book first, but now I need to find a copy!

If you haven’t read this yet, just do it! I’m sorry I waited so long.

The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall

Prologue

On the day Charles Barrett died, James MacNally closed the door to his study, sat down in his chair, and laid his head on the thick edge of his desk so he could weep. His wife, Nan, did not knock to be let in, though his rough, heavy sobs hit her like stones. She knew James’s death would wring the same sounds from her, if he went first and left her adrift in the world, unmoored.

As I’ve said many times on this blog, I LOVE my slow cooker. I thought it had bit the dust so my son bought me an Instant Pot which I love, but  he also looked at my SC and it was a simple fix (yea!!!) so now I can use both of them.

When I saw this beautiful hardcover spiral bound cookbook I had to buy it.

This book is big and heavy and shiny and I love it! I’ve already marked a lot of recipes to try like

Herb Roasted Chicken

Bavarian Beef

 There are photos throughout the book and most of the recipes have only a few ingredients and just a few steps.

I can’t wait to start cooking from this cookbook!

Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Chicken
Serves 6

1/2 cup Root Beer
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tablespoons Prepared Yellow Mustard
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/8 teaspoon Ground Ginger
2 pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cut into 2 – 3 inch cubes

In a medium mixing bowl mix together all of the ingredients except for the chicken until well combined to create the sauce

Add the cut up chicken to a gallon zippered storage bag

Pour the sauce over the chicken in the storage bag and gently massage the chicken into the sauce & zip the bag closed

Allow the chicken to marinate overnight in the refrigerator

Pour the ingredients into a 6 – 7 quart slow cooker

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours

Serve on buns or rolls (gluten-free if you are on a GF diet) as sandwiches

You can click on the link to the recipe for how to freeze/cook this

Thoughts
This is so quick and easy to get ready for the fridge, and tastes really good. The only things I did different was that I used Costco Rotisserie Chicken Breast Meat instead of chicken breasts which made it much easier than cutting the chicken into cubes. I also used my 8 qt. slow cooker instead of a 6 – 7 qt.

I also didn’t  serve on buns, I ate a scoop of it on a plate and ate it with a baked potato.

It was very good but since the flavor wasn’t quite as bold as I like, when I make it again I’ll double the sauce ingredients. The recipe says it makes 6 servings but for us it was a lot more than that. The two of us ate it twice and there was still enough for another two meals. The next time I’ll put half in a separate baggie and put it in the freezer to make later, and I plan on using the Slow Cooker program on my Instant Pot.

Pachinko by Min Jin Lee

Book 1
Gohyang/Hometown

1
Yeongdo, Busan, Korea

History has failed us, but no matter.
At the turn of the century, an aging fisherman and his wife decided to take in lodgers for extra money. Both were born and raised in the fishing village of Yeongdo – a five mile wide islet beside the port city of Busan. In their long marriage, the wife gave birth to three sons, but only Hoonie, the eldest and the weakest one, survived. Hoonie was born with a cleft palate and a twisted foot; he was, however, endowed with hefty shoulders, a squat build, and a golden complexion. Even as a young man, he retained the mild, thoughtful temperament he’d had as a child. When Hoonie covered his misshapen mouth with his hands, something he did out of habit meeting strangers, he resembled his nice-looking father, both having the same large, smiling eyes. Inky eyebrows graced his broad forehead, perpetually tanned from outdoor work. Like his parents, Hoonie was not a nimble talker, and some made the mistake of thinking that because he could not speak quickly there was something wrong with his mind, but that was not true.

The Dead

He wished the phone would stop ringing. It was bad enough to be sick let alone having a phone ring all night long. Boy was he sick. Not from any of their sour french wine either. A man couldn’t hold enough of it to get a head this big. His stomach was going round and round and round. Fine thing nobody’d answer that phone. It sounded like it was ringing in a room about a million miles wide. His head was a million miles wide too. The hell with the telephone.

I found this recipe at The Blond Cook 

So, I finally used my Instant Pot and I LOVE IT! So easy and quick. It only took 25 min. to cook once it came up to pressure.

1 pound dry baby lima beans
4 cups cubed, chopped or shredded fully cooked ham
1–1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon freshly minced garlic
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
Optional: fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Rinse and sort beans in a colander, removing and discarding any debris

Place beans and remaining ingredients (except parsley) in the insert of your Instant Pot and stir well to combine

Place the lid on and lock, steam release knob should be set on “sealing”

Cook on manual setting (high pressure) for 25 minutes

Allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick release remaining pressure

Carefully remove lid and stir

Remove and discard bay leaf.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.

Thoughts
I didn’t follow the instructions 100%. I used chicken bone broth instead of chicken broth and didn’t use the bay leave (I forgot about it even though I stopped at the store specifically to get some), and didn’t use the parsley.

I had baked a ham a few days before so I used the ham bone and cut up a bunch of ham to go in it.

The beans were SO GOOD! Next time I’ll double the recipe because we only got 3 big bowls from them and we like eating them more than one day.

It was easy to store the leftovers in the inner pot that comes with the IP, and I used an Instant Pot Silicone Lid. I love this lid, it’s thick and is a really tight fit.

I’ll definitely be making this recipe again!

Now I need to figure out what to make next!

Evelyn

Evelyn

2002
1h 35min
PG

Director Bruce Beresford
Starring Pierce Brosnan, Aidan Quinn, Alan Bates, Julianna Margulies

1953. Based on the true story of Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan), who after losing his job and watching his wife leave the country with another man, has his children taken away by an arcane custody law. Doyle cleans up his act and wages an unlikely legal battle to regain custody.

Thoughts
I was searching for a movie to watch the other day and saw this movie which is available on Amazon Prime (until Aug. 31st). Since I love true story movies, the actors in the movie, and anything to do with Ireland, I knew I wanted to watch it.

Poor Desmond Doyle is out of work. As if that isn’t bad enough, his wife leaves him and his 3 children on the day after Christmas and he has no idea where she is.

Due to unfortunate events, his kids are taken away from him and he is told he can’t get them back. Since that was not something he was willing to accept, he sets out to do whatever it takes to get them back, which at that time (1953) was not something the law would allow. But Desmond loved his children more than anything and would not give up. His journey to do so made history.

I loved everything about this movie. I loved that this man was willing to do everything in his power to get his kids back.  I loved the relationships between him and his kids, him and his father, and the kids and their grandfather.  The actors were convincing in their parts, even the talented children.

Even though this movie is about such a serious subject, there’s still a bit of humor and some great songs (two were sung by Pierce Bronsnan), and overall just a feel good movie!

I LOVED it! It is now on my list of all time favorite movies.

Escape Room: A Novel, Megan Goldin

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

Prologue

It was Miguel who called 911at 4:07A.M. on an icy Sunday morning. The young security guard spoke in an unsteady voice, fear disguised by cocky nonchalance.

Miguel had been an apiring bodybuilder until he injured his back lifting boxes in a warehouse job and had to take night-shift work gaurding a luxury office tower in the final stages of construction. He had a muscular physique, dark hair, and a cleft in his chin.

He was conducting a cursory inspection when a scream rang out. At first, he didn’t hear a thing. Hip-hop music blasted through the oversize headphones he wore as he swept his flashlight across the dark recesses of the lobby.
