The Countdown is On!

 The countdown is on! The end is in sight!  We are heading home this Saturday! Of course we will have to throw a winter storm in the mix before we leave. But I say, its just one more great story to tell about pipeliner living!

This is one thing I won't miss! The pipeliners muddy pants after the workday is over.

I took one last trip to the Amish bulk store yesterday.  There I picked up some seasonings and spices to take home. Would have loved to buy more ,but space is limited.  Found a jar of strawberry/rhubarb pie filling. Doesn't that sound wonderful on a cold winter night?

I am also trying to finish up some last minute craft ideas. I saw these big "clothspins" at the local craft store. How neat would they be  holding a recipe in the kitchen?

I have my modge-podge out, scraps of paper cut, and the little stickers ready. Now if the darn things would dry. I took them outside to spraypaint and they are still tacky.

While I was out I grabbed one last pic of pipeline camp. This is a view I don't see. The back end of all the campers.

By next week the lot will be empty. Most of the pipeliners will have traveled home for the holidays. Some will travel on to the next job. We will remember the time shared together in this little place we called home for the last couple of months.

This is the group of pipeline wives that I shared my time with. I don't know when I will see them again, or if we will ever meet again. But I do consider them my friends and so blessed we met!

This was from our little Christmas party we thru for ourselves last Saturday.
With all of the packing and unpacking in the upcoming days, I am sure blogging will be taking a backseat until after Christmas.
So to all of my new blogging friends I have made on this site;
Merry Christmas to one and all.
May you have a very blessed Christmas!
