Just what home would you choose if you had to? Out of 50 most expensive homes for sale [1 from each state in the union], it was difficult. But I narrowed my choices to two. My ultimate dream home has always been on the Pacific Ocean. Ocean views with all glass walls...high on a bluff, with so many acres called mine, my nearest neighbor would be MILES away!! Anyway, just for fun one morning while perusing the web so as not to wake up Bud in the quiet hours, I scanned the most expensive homes up for grabs. I was astonished that the 'expensive homes' were so LESS expensive in some states...location, location, location!! And I definitely wasn't impressed with the one in Texas - of all places, Dallas? No way. I'd prefer the Texas HILL Country! Note to self: "I must start playing the lottery; and win!!!"
Here is my top choice: Michigan
- Known as Granot Loma, this 26,000-square-foot log cabin comes with an enormous hot tub, a private harbor, an apple orchard - and of course, a private island.
The fact it's on a private island appeals to me greatly. Besides I like the rustic home AND its wooded surroundings.
Here is my runner-up: New Mexico
- Nestled in the foothills of Santa Fe, this manor offers phenomenal views of the Sangre de Cristos from many of its rooms, which include a formal living room, a grand dining room, and a library.
Oh, oh...did someone say a library? Of my own? Yep, that would be a selling point for me.
So, if you have about 10 minutes of spare time, try and pick YOUR ideal dream home from the most expensive homes for sale by state. Awwww, come on, dream a little. It's cheap entertainment!! Check 'em out by using the arrows at the top of the listed pages!! HERE I'd be most interested in your choice[s].

I did a little bit of holiday decorating again. This time I strung the lights on the sleigh and reindeer garland. I was hoping it resemble the reins from the hands of Santa, but it didn't. They're up and lighted!!
When that was done I finished with the fireplace. Of course, living here in South Texas it rarely gets below 40 degrees at night, so there really isn't any need for a fire in the fireplace [we do have some firewood, only for cold nights/mornings when the power is out for some reason]. Anyway, I decided to add some candle glow...

Reading our local news online via my phone, I was all smiles when I read this report!! I'm gonna share the photo that was linked from Facebook...
It made me feel good to read something positive, and the patrolman also felt the need to show that there ARE good people out there!! Someone wrote on his patrol car "Thank You"! In lieu of all the negative cop stories etc. these days...well, did I say I liked reading this?!!

One more thing; I have a question: In all my years, I have NEVER eaten a scone. I found a holiday recipe for cranberry scones with maple butter. Erik, our son, LOVES cranberries!!! Now my question is...are scones tasty? Your input is invaluable to me.
