I’m Ready to Fight – Beautiful Ashes And A Message From Sarah

http://www.mistyleask.com/im-ready-to-fight/ 

I Am Ready To Fight : By  Misty Leask  

From Sarah : I need to start posting about the ongoing Battles I have. I have a number of them. Depression is the major one because that contributes to all the rest of them. It is harder to fight for anything when you are fighting depression. 

So I will be sharing my battles as well. 

Depression

Lupus And Fibromyalgia.

My Weight 

Always Being Hot 

My Horrible Mood Swings Not Caused By Depression

Loneliness 

Isolation

My Marriage

From Misty:

Living far away from my family has never been easy for me, but God blessed me with the best friends I could ever ask for. Thanks to them, He got my attention. I was told quite a few times that I needed to watch, War Room, by a couple of my besties. I didn’t take the time to do so until this week. It was life changing. God opened my eyes to see that I needed my own war room because I had stopped talking to Him due to the many distractions around me. I have friends and family that need me fighting for them, my children need me fighting for them. I’m losing the parenting battle many days because I’m not fighting with the right weapons! I’ve been leaving behind the biggest advocate I have and trying to find my way on this parenting journey alone. It’s no wonder that I’ve struggled with depression so much the last few months.

How Is Your Credit Today?

From Food Stamps To A Future

Are you having difficulties establishing your credit? Are you constantly being turned away? Are you getting frustrated, and don’t know where else to turn? Well, today is your lucky day. I’ve got your back! Keep reading to discover how I went from no credit to great credit overnight…

Building Credit

I had a bit of a late start establishing my credit. In my younger years I focused on building my husband’s credit, as he was the one with the income. So when we divorced, my credit line was non-existent. You know the phrase “no credit is worse than bad credit?” It’s true! Try doing anything for your life without credit…From buying a car to applying for a mortgage. Unfortunately, it’s just one of those necessary evils.

I was 30 years old before I was able to establish my credit. Every place that I tried to get help from turned me away, including…

Reblogged From Fiona’s Favourites : Fabulous fare – holiday eating “in”

I have found a new blog. At least new to me. Fiona has been around for a few years. She has the most interesting blog. Wonderful to look at. I have barely scratched the surface.
It was the salad I saw first when I got there but her blog fascinated me and I read all about her BEFORE I checked out the salad…..
She lives in South Africa so I am learning a lot about the history there.

Fiona's Favourites

We have just recently returned from a short break on the Garden Route – Sedgefield to be exact – and our first real breakaway in over two years.

SedgeAMview2015 This is the view that greeted us every day!

We’ve been visiting the area since our honeymoon in September 2002.  We stay in a self-catering resort which allows us to do as we please, when we please; as the units are serviced, it is a real holiday:  no bed-making, cleaning or cooking – unless I want to.

All of that said, I do sometimes want to play with my food, and that can be a challenge in a really limited kitchen – and with an electric stove.  I am seriously out of practice after cooking almost exclusively on gas for the last eight or so years.  Anyway, that aside, I did manage to produce a few meals while we were there:  mostly…

Reblogged from Lynz Real Cooking : Mocha Cookie Mousse

This is a special dessert that I have made for many years.  It became a favorite of my British neighbor while we were residing on a Western compound in Riyadh. She asked me to make it for her weekly and said that it was her husband’s all time favorite dessert. It has a light mocha flavor and a chocolate cookie crust.

Ingredients

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso

2 egg yolks

1 small jar marshmallow fluff

1 small container whipping cream

1/2 cup white sugar

Crust

15-20 chocolate cookies made into big crumbs

Directions

Pour crumbs into small spring form pan, press down and even out.

Filling

In sauce pan mix chocolate chips, water and coffee. On low heat whisk until smooth and chips are melted. Remove pan from heat and let cool slightly while doing the next step. Separate 2 eggs and use only yolks…
