I had to ditto all the gorgeous daughter comments, and also to add as a suggestion that I'm sorry to hear of the Lid Crisis -- maybe as a stop-gap, try getting that Glad Press-N-Seal stuff at your local grocery to keep the jars sealed until your lids arrive?

HELLO KIM- susan's shawl is looking beautiful - what great name ideas - I have to have the moraccan days , but you never know if night might follow - can't wait

pat j [ or for my bee socks] - its all so much fun , I will be poor but well dressed in wool!!

Cheryl

I like the path your daughter's going down. It sounds like she's on the right track.

tiennie

I think your victories greatly outweigh your defeat! Yay for your very pretty daughter and her goals!

Ruinwen

Sorry the week was so rough on you. Life can be like that at times. But it seems you won in the end. It was so heartwarming to read that your daughter wants to follow in your happy footsteps! :)

Manise

Awesome new website set up! This is getting very exciting! Congrats! Hope the cream was salvaged and your freezer now clean and smelling of lavender no doubt.

Gina

One success that you should not forget is your newsletter - which I received (success!) and which led me to your website and beautiful yarn. I would order at least one of every color if I could - since I couldn't possibly choose a favorite. I hope Santa is generous so I can fulfill my wish.

Laurie

The victories were big, the defeats small. The universe was more your friend than not, methinks.

Norma

Wow, she is not only gorgeous on the outside, but on the inside, as well. Score to you for raising her up well!!!

How MADDENING about the handcream jar covers!

anne

what a great post . . . . a true reflection of real life.

pat jarvis

HELLO KIM - really enjoyed you long long post today , and I hope you keep trying to post more often - its great to hear about your new yarn , will look out for it - life is she full of those ups and downs - but thats life when you live it - wounderful to hear what your daughter had to say - my boys are 19 and 24 and what they share amazes me more each day - it sure makes you proud to be a parent - your daughter is lovely - and you seem so sweet , yourself

eye on your blog pat j

stacey

The colorways for the Belvedere are gorgeous!! Can't wait! Too bad about the mitt - it was so pretty, but it will be pretty again. And indeed - a victory to raise kids and have them define "success" - good job, mom!

Cathy

Do you sell your hand creams???

Vicki

The last success is the best of all! I bet the defeats just didn't matter anymore!

Mary E.Dadds

Hello Kim,
seem to have missed something.Catching up on your blog,I find you have Quite a victory.
That Girl of yours has her head on straight
And is heading for certain success.

Beth S.

She's a chip off the old block, huh? :-) Good for her--and for you!

Hope you get the fridge cleaned out--and the handcream stays creamy. ;-)

Danielle

Focus on the victories, right?? I forgot that you have hand cream too ... hmmm ...

Marisol

What an absolutely lovely post today! Congrats on daughter # 2 I am sure she will have much happiness and success in her life! There is nothing more rewarding then doing the things that you love and being succesful at it - financially.

Sorry to hear about all the little blunders... When this happens I usually stop and take a breather just in case everyhthing I am touching is not turning into gold:)

Wow, what a week! That must have been very aggrevating to have the wrong-sized lids. Congratulations on the victories!

susan

Oh, dear, I MUST have a skein of that new sock yarn (the color in the center). Don't sell it all before I have a chance!

Cheryl S.

Daughter #2 is clearly as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.

margene

A mitten mishap seems miner in the face of that beautiful yarn and D#2s revelation. She had a great teacher... you did do well.

Wool Winder

It sounds like the victories more than compensated for the defeats, especially since all of the defeats can be fixed, with the exception of the spilled lavender oil. And at least that mishap left the kitchen smelling good.

Susan Pandorf

I had no idea I would kick up such a firestorm with my meek little question, "Is it ok to post about Morocco?" Sorry if you took any heat on it.

I think your victories are ginormous. They are the same kind of satisfying fare as comfort food. They may not be glamorous, but they fill you to the brim and spill you over the edge into joy.

Now it's time to get back to work (if you can call it that)

Blessings!

Debbie

At least you didn't knit a sweater for your daughter! It was a mitten. Whew. You didn't have to rip far, at least. Your daughter is really pretty! I love her goals. My daughter is very similar. She has learned a lot about herbs and herbal healing. She knows a lot about it, and I have used her remedies. We're very lucky moms!

Cassie

That daughter thing sounds like a *major* victory right there.

Marie

interesting..I just knit a very tight mitten as well. Hmm....and I'm always lecturing my mom on knitting a guage swatch before starting a project....practice what I preach...

If it were not for life's little defeats, the victories would not be so gratifying. Your daughter is gorgeous! I think that we hold many of the same ideals...
Hope today goes well for you.
Marie in Vermont

Jean

In the end, when we have a conversation like that with our kids it's worth everything, isn't it.
I say knit with bigger needles, use a spatula and put all the cream in a rubbermaid bin until the lids come and then sit down with a cup of tea and knit. Can't help you with the scented freezer. :-0

gina

At least every time you open the freezer you should get a sense of calm!! Good luck on the mittens, and I hope the jar caps arrived in time!! Sounds like a day in the life, some days it is just the way it is...hope that things go better today!

Kat with a K

Sorry about your little defeats, but it sounds like you have some great victories!

Anne

Frankly, with an ending to your day like the one in your post, how could you possibly even notice the little "down dips"? Obviously you did a good job - daughter #2 sounds fabulous.

Carole

I'm sorry about the bad stuff, it all sounds very frustrating. Maybe you were doing TOO much multitasking? :-)
Great news on your daughter. Of course you've done a wonderful job. Be proud.

Teyani

what a lovely post.. and what success with your gorgeous daughter - her ideals are so wonderful :-) (yay Mom - yay daughter!)
too bad about the re-knit of the mitt.. it sure looks pretty tho'
and what fabulous colors in that new yarn..

Carrie

I dunno about the rest of it, but at least your freezer smells nice. :-)
