What a trip!

Well in the spirit of this blog I always try to find the silver lining in each day. As I mentioned in my last post I had to travel out to Idaho and take care of a property we have there. Well there was a serious leak in the third floor which went unnoticed for far too long.. Renters, ughh… Well I had a ton of demolition this weekend and I think we are almost done ripping the wallboard and sub floor out where needed. Lets just say this is one expensive project and things keep adding up and up..


Well money isn’t everything and this will all pass, At the same time life dishes big stinky plates some times. The only thing we can do is find the silver lining and move on. I love the South and have discussed how tranquil being at home is., hence the blog name.. but when I cant be home I have to search to find things that bring the sense of tranquility as I feel at home.

So how do I do that? I look at everything around me and realize the world isn’t going to stop spinning. There are always things to be grateful for. For instance I found a great BBQ joint in town. The owner was from Arkansas so it was okay… but they had a great sweet-tea and baby backs. It brought me that sense of hoe I was needing. Once I got back to my property I noticed the lawn crew I hired was working away.. I mean I have the side of my building stripped down and these guys are treating my landscape like its gold. They helped pick the debris off the landscape and did just a fantastic job on the lawn and really all around. As you get to know me better, you’ll know that one thing I love is a perfect lawn and being able to relax and enjoy clean lines and a neat and tidy backyard.

My sense of tranquility or the silver lining in my weekend was thanks to my yard service, Boise Lawn Experts. A new company to me and I couldn’t be happier, Thanks guys!

So in the midst of a pile of rubble there is always a silver lining. Even if that silver lining is appreciating the small things in life. I would encourage you to find that sense of tranquility wherever you may find yourself.

Until next time stay cool my friends!
