The air quality is back to horrific levels today. Stay inside friends!! Praying for the safety especially for all the farm animals, we have a neighbor goat that is so sweet and doesn’t have a barn for shelter. 😢#thishaskeptusupatnight #allgodscreatures #goldendoodle

The Pope urges people to eat more plants in response to the environmental crisis. Laudato si' - On the Care for our Common Home is the Pope's Encyclical Letter on the environment and human ecology. Pope Francis challenges us to consider the kind of world we want to leave to those who come after us. It's not just an 'environment encyclical', it leads us to ask ourselves about the meaning of existence and the values at the heart of social life: "What is the purpose of our life in this world? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us?"

"Five countries (United Kingdom, Austria, Croatia, Macedonia, and Slovenia) have instituted bans on fur farming. Seven countries (Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Serbia, Belgium, Norway, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Netherlands) are phasing out fur farms. And, one country – Germany – has a partial fur farm ban in four of its states." THANK YOU! Hopefully more will follow suit.

Hubby saved this little one from the road and brought him inside to see me. We chatted a while and then I returned him to a safe place near the lake. #allGodsCreatures #lakelife #livingthedream #texas #water #nature #turtle #littleone #rescueme #saveoftheday #fishing #sweetsave

"If you aren’t vegan you are continuing to be part of the problem." Politicians and fire marshals are pointing the finger at climate change as the reason for this “fire storm” we are seeing in California.

We are razing our forests — 138 acres every minute, 24-7, 365 — to raise food for animals who will be food for humans or to graze animals who will be food for humans.

If you find this image of a dolphin balancing a hoop on its rostrum disturbing, you’re in good company: we do, too. And yet, this is the sad reality of cetacean captivity. While marine parks and aquariums will have you believe the mammals are enjoying their lives performing tricks, the reality is far more sinister.

Dolphins, like the ones brutally captured a few days ago from the waters around Taiji, Japan are perfectly adapted to the wild. When separated from their pods and placed in tanks, their natural instincts which help them navigate, hunt for prey and raise their young are suppressed. They become wholly reliant on their trainers for basic necessities to stay alive, including food.

So we ventured off to the #DenverZoo yesterday which was an...experience. I figured we’d take advantage of the free zoo day for Veterans Day, plus any opportunity to go to Denver I take, so we rode out to see the animals. My kiddos lasted 45 minutes. Yes you heard that right, they lasted a whooping 45 frickin minutes... well really 25 with 20 more of whining and “I’m not gonna make its” in the cold before it was time to call it quits and to be honest, their extreme discomfort [read: annoying embarrassing f*€£ sh!t) made me really evaluate the animals and their well-being. While I’m no peta promoting, vegan eating (thought I do incorporate vegan values in my kitchen) type, in fact I believe in the cycle of life and see beauty in the delicate divine dance of predator and prey, but I am a firm believer in oneness with nature and understanding that we as humans are no better than any other animal, but rather we are just a different, more destructive, species of animal, so I couldn’t help but equate my children’s struggle in these freezing temperatures to that of the exotic animals. No matter how acclimated you get ain’t no way in hell an Asian Elephant or African short haired warthog or what ever is intended to be in those kind of tempetures. Shoot, I’m barely acclimated to being in those kinds of conditions and I had on layers... My point is that maybe zoos should only be available during warm months. Or they should create more interactive indoor viewing facilities in colder climates... cause the animals did not ask for that shit! .

1 cup Spelt or Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Rolled Oats (Oatmeal), ground
1 - 1/2 cups Pumpkin, canned or puree
3/4 cup Apple Juice
1 cup Dates, pitted
2 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1 tsp. Ginger, ground
1/4 tsp. Cloves, ground

These healthful pumpkin pie cookies are a deliciously soft holiday treat that contains no sugar or white flour; their sweetness comes from fruit. This recipe makes 12 cookies, but can easily be doubled to make two dozen pumpkin pie cookies. Since these cookies contain no preservatives, as do store bought cookies, leftovers should be stored in a covered container or food storage bag in the refrigerator and will remain fresh for a few days.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C.) Place the spelt, or whole wheat flour, and the ground rolled oats (oatmeal) in a bowl and mix together. (The rolled oats can be ground in a blender on high speed. Be sure that the container is dry before grinding.) Add the cinnamon, ginger and cloves, and mix well.
Place the pumpkin into the container of a high speed blender. Add the apple juice and dates. Cover and run at high speed until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended and smooth.
Add the pureed pumpkin, dates and apple juice to the flour mixture and mix thoroughly with a stiff spatula or spoon. If the cookie dough is too stiff, you may add a little more apple juice. A thinner dough will make a flatter cookie. A stiff dough will make irregular thick cookies like the ones shown in the photo. (To test for dough stiffness, we stick a soup spoon upright into the dough. If it is stiff enough, the spoon will remain upright.) On a non-stick or lightly oiled baking sheet, place the cookie dough in twelve equal sized "mounds." Smooth and shape each cookie with a spoon or spatula, as desired.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Various ovens bake differently, so we suggest that you begin checking the cookies after 20 minutes of baking. The cookies should be firm, but not hard. Be careful not to over-bake.

"True faithfulness is unconditional because if we are faithful to God and love Him with every part of our being, as we are called to do, then we should also be faithful to care for and protect every part of God’s creation as He calls us to do." - Pastor Frank L. Hoffman

So much joy came to our house last night in the form of one tiny injured kitten. A friend of a friend rescued little Gus after he was attacked by a raccoon. Gus has a fractured femur and pelvis but is recovering so well and needed a home.
Gus is the answer to Lila's prayers. She has been praying that God would bring the right kitty into our lives and we are so happy to welcome Gus into our home. #allGodscreatures #gusthecat #adoption #lilaandgus
