    1. Hello, Dottie! I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. And even so I feel honoured and thrilled that you nominated my blog for the Liebster Award! I do appreciate a second recognition! Hahaha! Thank you, and yes, I will be working on a post in regards to this award. I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas! πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you for enjoying my Way Back in Time blog. I see you mentioned about fermenting food. Well, I know there’s fermenting drinks and there’s also canning. Will you please explain about fermenting food?

      1. It’s called Lemon-Lime Water Kefir. It’s made from lemon, lime, sugar, and water kefir. I found it from culturesforhealth.com. The drink is something like a lemon-lime soda. The site has advice and recipes on fermentation.

  2. Hello, Michaela, I wanted to stop by to thank you for liking a comment I made on Victo Delore’s blog which in turn directed me to yours. I’ve stumbled upon so many fabulous blogs by engaging with “likers.” I look forward to visiting again. Have a great rest of the weekend! πŸ™‚ ~Steph

    1. Hi Steph! That’s so cool! You may be my first blogger who has stopped by based on that premise – my liking your comment on another blog post. I’m glad you did, Steph, because sometimes I find people in those “other” ways, and really, there isn’t just the usual ways to find other bloggers. Plus, I like that you decided to search me out….and dropped in to say hi! You have put a big smile on my face! So, thank you very much! Also, I liked your comment on Victo’s post, because you described essentially how I viewed procedures during pregnancy, and I liked how you handled it. And clearly, your heart led you to the right decision for you. Congratulations on your children (three?) and your third being a fine 27-year-old man. πŸ˜€ I have four children (my youngest is 20 now), and having ultrasounds/sonograms is the farthest I ever wanted to go with “procedures.” With my oldest child, I didn’t even HAVE that option, and all was well. And besides, not knowing the gender early on always made the birth just that extta bit special…for me anyway. πŸ˜€ For our fourth child, the ultrasound technician gave away the gender, and even though I always looked forward to my babies’ births, that last one didn’t have the same kind of surprise element to it.

      1. Hi again Michaela, congratulations on your four children. πŸ˜ƒ It’s so amazing how much progress we’ve made in the medical and technological fields although to your point, at least where pregnancy is concerned, there are some things better left unknown in advance. It bothered me that the doctors felt the need to push me into accepting their position even though I knew their option wouldn’t be the right one for me. I feel very fortunate that everything worked out well in the births of my three sons but even if they were born with disabilities it wouldn’t change how I feel about them. I guess this is the thing that disturbs me the most, that disabilities are viewed as abnormal and even disposable and it breaks my heart. And the idea of “creating” designer babies is equally bothersome. All of this makes me wonder what’s coming next.

      2. Thank you, and I love to hear how you feel about your three sons. That’s the power of love. Real love. I also feel concern about how disabilities are viewed as something to be cast off (instead of how we can learn from them and improve the lives connected to it, as we all learn and benefit from our differences. Provided we stay open-minded to the possiblities. I’m not keen on designer babies. The beauty of life in all its forms is that they are not designed by us….but by nature, who is smarter by far than we are.

    2. Thank you, Steph, for dropping by and for introducing yourself. I find that Victo’s posts generate a lot of fascinating and interesting comments from so many of his readers. πŸ˜€ Thank you, and I wish you the same! It’s been a beautiful sunshiney Sunday – albeit cold – today.

      1. You’re welcome Michaela! It was so beautiful yet very cold yesterday and today it’s gloomy but supposed to get warmer, go figureπŸ˜‰. At least we can rest assured that spring is somewhere on the horizon. Have a great Monday.

      2. Oh, spring is definitely just about THERE! Haha! Thank you! Monday didn’t have any blue sky to show off the sun, BUT the sun was still out, hidden by clouds, and it was still a nice day. And then came the freezing rain….oy! Hope your Monday was great, Steph! πŸ˜€
