A while back I mentioned that I was looking on Whidbey Island for a house. I also said it was a woman's prerogative to change her mind. As you know I change my mind. I looked at Whidbey Island - it being an island it is limited on housing. Property is expensive and scarce. Trying to find that perfect home or even something close is just not happening. I will say property taxes are reasonable in fact they are about 1/3 of what the taxes are in Iowa. I am looking again at Iowa. Property I can find but again that perfect house is just not happening. Iowa has very high property tax, it is the 7th highest property tax state in the country. I don't understand it, Iowa is cornfields. Where is that money going? There are a lot of words that I could say on the subject and at a later time I might do that. I will continue to look for a house, and I will probably find one. It certainly won't be my dream house. I am not rich, I cannot afford $500 plus a month for property tax. It would be nice if I could have a few coins to buy quilt fabric.
Speaking of quilt fabric...............
I have all the parts made for Alaska/Nebraska. Today I start putting it together.
