Sunday Pawzing to Encourage All to Keep it Cruelty-Free

Hello all. Happy Sunday!

I want to start featuring some of my favorite products. What does this have to do with animals? EVERYTHING!

The products I want to share are cruelty-free. There is no need to put animals through the torture they endure for us to use household items. If you’re a believer in God and that he created all, we must ask ourselves what would he think of this practice? If you’re not a believer in God, then consider the torture animals are put through. They live in a lab in a metal cage, experimented on, harmed and then treated, and so much worse. This happens to dogs, cats, and rabbits which most of us have in our family. Take a moment to look at your furry family member. It’s their fellow beings this is happening to. There are better ways: https://www.pcrm.org/ethical-science/animal-testing-and-alternatives.

I am featuring SEVENTH GENERATION in this post. These are one of my favorite product lines (https://www.leapingbunny.org/brand/seventh-generation). I currently use the hand soap, laundry detergent, and dish soap. I like the scent free dish soap because I use it to wash Cino’s food and water dishes every day.


Do you have a favorite cruelty-free product? Please share.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Don’t Give Up

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax.

There is so much going on around us in this world, just don’t give up. Don’t give up on being kind, on making a change (peacefully), on our fellow man, on animals, or on praying.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Animals Need To Relax Too

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax and relaxing isn’t just for us.

There are so many animals that never get to really relax. Cows kept in confinement and hooked up to machines so humans can take their milk. Calves kept in the smallest possible area so they don’t build muscle so humans can have veal. Elephants chained up so they can “perform” for humans. Pit bulls living every minutes in fear of abuse so humans can use them to make money in dog fights. The list goes on but since I try to keep my Sunday posts “light” I will stop there. You get the idea!

But the theme of WHO is causing all of this harm is humans. I can’t help but imagine what God would say if we sat down and asked him what he thought about how humans treat his animals.

Cino is able to curl up and relax this Sunday and I hope the animals in your care are able to as well.

Sunday Pause (Paws): March 2021

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

We all agree that 2020 and even 2021 have been incredibly challenging years. This month has turned out to be a bugger for me as well. March 1st I fell and injured my ankle pretty badly. I have never had anything quite like this happen and it has been very challenging. I tried for the first few weeks to go on with life as normal but it wasn’t working. I was struggling in many ways and the demands of life can make you feel pressured. Now I am concentrating on getting better and making that the priority.

My birthday was last Sunday and there wasn’t much celebrating because of my injury and not being able to get together due to the pandemic. But I received gifts and cards in the mail along with a number of phone calls and messages. My mom also dropped off some goodies and gifts for me.❤️ One of the gifts was a wreath I have been wanting for months that I found on Etsy. Here is a picture of the wreath as I opened it up. It’s still in the box and after checking it over thoroughly, it is also Cino approved.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Scrambled Thoughts

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax.

I haven’t been relaxing yet but it’ll come later. I’m working on laundry and other household tasks first. So speaking about laundry, at our new place we have a nice front load washer. I have heard they can leave an unpleasant smell behind in the washer, which I have found to be very true, and it seems my laundry never smells good. Today for the first time I am trying “UNStopables” scent beads. The laundry isn’t done yet but I can smell it while it’s going and it smells good, so hopefully so will my laundry.

Anyway, that isn’t what I was going to write about, although I am writing on scrambled thoughts. 🙂

It isn’t always easy for me to write a post unless I have a specific conversation or situation through the week that gives me an idea for one. There hasn’t been any of that lately, but I have been having a lot of thoughts about animals. They’re so scrambled it’s been hard to pull them together to write a post. I finally decided just to go ahead and let them out even if they come out scrambled. Mostly I have been thinking about how I feel like I or other animal loving people have to use so much time & energy in convincing other people about animal’s rights. You see to me it seems like it should be obvious. God created them and God gave us the job to care for them. Period.

If you believe in God, you probably believe that when this world ends there will be no more Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Come Together

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax and seriously you all we need to pray. Turning on each other is not the answer.

There is just too much going on in the world (in our country) to even try to fully write about right now.

There is hate, there is violence, there is illness, there is financial worry, and so much more. Aside of these recent global and local battles there has always been abuse. Abuse of animals and abuse of people. I’m afraid with all of the stresses these days this has most likely heightened. So many different challenges people are going through. Just this past week I have heard of two people committing suicide (too close to home). This is one thing that deeply breaks my heart. Thinking that someone felt that much despair that they saw no way out and chose to end their life is such an absolute heartbreaking thing.

A world with no more hate
For that day we can hardly wait
Until then love is what we’ll portray
And on our knees we’ll continue to pray

Not sure what you’re going through but my prayer is you can have a Happy Sunday!

Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021


Well Jack certainly is expressing exactly how we all feel! I just LOVE this picture and it is so appropriate. Everyone is so excited and anxious to say goodbye to 2020.

I am not one who makes resolutions but if I were it would be more of a wish this year. A wish that we start letting go of the hatred. With that in mind, I wrote the following poem to say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021.

LET ALL OF THE HATRED BE DONE

There has been so much happening
It has all been so very maddening
I blame you, you blame me, we blame them
Rather than love, it’s been easier to condemn
Yes, this year has been a tough one
Everyone is surely glad to see it done
But when the mask comes off what will we see? Continue reading
