Definition of IGNORANCE
: the state or fact of being ignorant : lack of knowledge, education, or awareness

First off I am not calling any certain person ignorant but wanted to touch on the subject and why I don't like people being ignorant about things

One of the definitions of ignorance is lack of knowledge and that is what upsets me the most people want to make decisions with out knowing all the facts. I had a group of people do this to me a few years back, just because myself and a friend had a disagreement and that friend decided to not be friends anymore but then all of the group all of a sudden were no longer my friends WHY??? Because of ignorance, they had no idea all that went on, they didnt' know what was said between me and this other person but because of this person I lost those friends too

I think if someone has a problem with another person they should try and find out why there is a problem in the first place and remember there is always two sides to every story. Don't just go by what someone else says, find out for yourself and then make your own decision.

Sorry but I just had to post this.

Lots going on this past week...

I decided the other day to get out my keeper at home binder, one problem-- I had no idea where it was! Can you believe it? What a great keeper at home person I am :) After searching for a few hours and yes it took a few hours to find it I got it all set out to start marking things off that I had gotten done.

This is Monday's page, as you can tell No items are checked off isnt' that just sad, I always seem to have good intentions of getting things done but have the hardest time following through and actually doing them. I did get some of the items done but not all of them. I am usually pretty good at doing the morning things though there has been quite a few times when the morning things end up being more like afternoon things :)

Wednesday's list didn't get much better....

ANd by Thursday I had really given up. Oh I do things just not what I have on my lists, this means another redo of my list of things to get done. I think the list is too long but some of the reason the list is long is that I break everything down so I remember to do everything.This next week I will give it another try and see what I can get done :)

The other day in the mail, I received this beautiful gift from my friend Treva. It is so pretty and so is the card. She put a lot of work into it and I really just love it.

Today the UPS person delivered this~

MY old bread machine stopped working about 2 or so weeks ago and I ordered another one on Sunday and was suprised when it came today. This new one makes a loaf horizontally not vertical though I only use the dough cycle, this one has two blades for mixing so hope that will improve the quality of the dough.. I prefer to bake my bread in my oven.

Plan on testing it out this weekend so will see how it does.

Today being Friday it was also grocery shopping day and today's total was $125 not very good

I got lots of fresh fruits and veggies YUMM!!

This is the ground beef I get at Walmart, it's only 4% fat and it has such a good flavor and when you cook it up there is very little fat that comes out of it. It cost $4.58 per pound but oh so worth it for the taste.The reason it looks kind of funny is that I pulled it out of the freezer to take the picture of it.

I certainly hope to have some much more productive days next week. I need to work on my to do lists and I also need to work on my getting sidetracked onto other things.

Please have a very blessed weekend.

It is Friday and nothing has gotten done this week :(

I have been sick since Monday early morning and this is the first time I have turned on my comptuer all week. I have been checking email, a few blogs and facebook during the day through my phone, but haven't put any new posts up on my blog till now :)

Monday and Tuesday I was a total wreck and accomplished nothing, Wednesday I was actually able to get out of bed and sit upright without feeling too sick. Thursday I was feeling better and today I feel even better. I plan on continuing the feeling good part for a while if I can.

I have a new Bible that I have been exploring, it has tons of footnotes, explanations, and study helps along with a huge concordance. I am just loving it. It is huge and has lots of pages and pictures. I don't have a picture of it but will try and take one this weekend and post it so you can see just how big it is. I enjoy reading it and have been doing lots of reading lately.

I pray you all have a wonderful weekend in the Lord and I plan on being back to posting and tending to my home like I should be.

I recently had someone question my being a Titus 2 woman, and I was really thinking about this and figured out a couple of things first of all I don't care what anyone has to say about me :) Second I have never said I WAS a Titus 2 woman, I have always said and thought of myself as striving to be a Proverbs 31/Titus 2 woman. Maybe they don't know what the word stiving means:)

No pictures for this post.

Blessings, Joann

This song by Building 429 is a song that just says it all " All I know is I'm not home yet, this is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus, this is not where I belong."

I plan on having a joy filled week this coming week, yes I am chosing to be joyful and not worrying about what other people think about me. I have lots of things to do this week and I have to be in a frame of mind to get them done. I read lots of different blogs and there are two out there that really inspire and encourage me a lot.

These last few weeks have been hard on me, I have been called all sorts of names by someone of whom I used to be friends with, I was also criticized by what i said in my last post about holding plans loosely so now I feel like I am walking on egg shells so I don't offend anybody else.

I am planning by the end of this week to have a tour of my home up but I can't promise anything because I will just have to see where each day leads me. I haven't been on the computer much for a while now, but am enjoying a new Bible I got this past week.

Have a wonderful week ahead of you, may it be blessed, Joann
