Box blahs

Greetings from a very cold and snow covered street on which a crabby sick lady lives. 
 
 I should have had boxes ready for shipping by now but it's not happening.  One reason is being ill, the other is the dwindling supply of boxes except for a few with warped lids sitting on the shelves.  My dozens of tall ovals are not what I expected, no longer available, and the reason I don't order online any longer.  For the few I have, I went Antrim nuts, modifying to fit shapes (you can see them under the Box tab). The other two are 5" squares with two lid designs.  If a sale will be offered, I will do a blog post with the date and time along with prices before listing them.

The 8" square and 6" round are not in stock at my local supplier and I'm still waiting.  Hobby Lobby breaks the sets apart and sells them individually, will not break open another set for just one or two and I need way too many of one size.  Aren't you tired of these anyway?  I want to do something different and when my brain is no longer fogged, I may come up with an idea.  Because of Jamie at Cricket Bug the only idea in my head right now is peanut butter pie.  I've gained over 5 pounds because ice cream melting in my mouth was the only thing I could swallow.  And I did!  Many half gallons of it but it really did help with the throat pain and burning. 
 
I emailed The Attic a while ago asking if they wanted the Nash bag or my Christmas pear for the auction but never received a reply.  Their newsletter said they were taking donations but I preferred getting the OK from them first before mailing.  They always have such lovely items from their generous customers and stitchers offered for bid .
 

 Time to drink another shot of bad tasting medicine and find a roaming brat.  I heard her jump the barrier so the hunt is on. 
Hope you stay well and have an enjoyable week.
Thanks for visiting.

Oh no....the peanut butter pie is soft and delicious but will make you gain 10 pounds! If I lived closer I would drop one off to help you feel better!

Ahhh Marly, hoping you are feeling better soon. Anad that the cats/brats don't roam too far or hide too successfully - lol. It is so cold here, but at least we have no snow...yet...

Vickie said...

I am sorry you are still suffering so Marly. Well, the snow is pretty. We have it too. And the 18º high today.

Sorry you are not feeling better, I find the older I get the harder it is to bounce back. Remember being young and still managing to go out anyway. Now getting out of bed seems like enough activity for one day. Stop teasing me about the boxes, I look at the photos and want. Hope you feel better so you can finish the boxes, i know selfish of me.

Hope you feel better soon.
God-awful weather in Ohio, too. Cold - about 18 degrees and near gale force winds. Well, maybe not that bad but it sure feels that way!
Hugs :)

You need to feel better now! Sorry you are still under the weather. How odd that the Attic didn't answer you about your pieces. That's too bad.

I feel your pain. When I had my knee replacement last April, all the meds made me sick! What was the one thing I could eat?? Ice cream!! Now I have to get rid of 10 pounds! Hope you feel better soon!

I dislike winter as much as you do, but I must admit that the snow on the trees is beautiful. I'll have to remember ice cream the next time I have a burning sore throat. I usually only have jello or pudding, lol.

Sending prayers. Hope you feel better soon. The boxes are so beautiful. Cathryn

I wish you were feeling much better by now. Let's hope this will be the only sore throat you have for the remainder of the winter.
Your snow scene is beautiful. Would like to have a little bit here in Va.
The kitties sure have it good to be in your nice, warm home in this kind of weather..
Take care. Thinking about you.
