Wow - What has been happening??

Wholly cow. I guess I pretty much almost forgot about this little blogspot. OK - well maybe I can get back into this. I sure wood like two.
Quick run down off what has happened this year of 2011, thus far.

2011 Winter: Best skiing of my life - I almost feel like I ONLY did Powder skiing. So fabulous. The video I captured isn't awesome - but that is cuz I'm bad at filming not because the skiing was bad!! I got super sick at my birthday - haven't been that sick since I was a kid. Luckily I did recover enough to go mountain biking with Toro! and then to have a few beers at the Russian River Brew Co with my brother and Toro and Rand. Great day. Being that sick gave me a chance to think about life a lot - weird.
The winter never let go - just kept skiing powder all through April, then in May I had surgery to fix my ankle. I have lived with that janky thang for 16 years and finally got it fixed. It finally was impacting my life the past 18months, so it was and easy decision - that and I found a great surgeon/doctor.
4 months of recover....lots of sitting on my but with my foot up - but once I was able to work out again - BAM! I'm back. In fact, I am probably stronger now than ever before in my life. Thank you David and High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T.)! It is like cross-fit, but we do almost all body weight exercises. Totally recommended. Send me a note and I'll send you some workouts to get you started.
Oh - I should mention that I went to Las Vegas 1 week after surgery. Wow - that was tough - but also really fun.
Dave and Danielle Metres got married up in the Sierra - that was pretty much my first time going out without a boot on my foot after the surgery. Then time for Bral and GG: Mountain biking in Downieville with Bral for his bachelor party. Great time. The wedding was wonderful! All the Groggels spoke and it was hilarious! Even though I had learned some new dance moves I never got a chance to dance cuz the Colby Girls owned the floor the whole night!
Drink or Treating almost didn't happen cuz FFI owned me. Luckily, Pia came out the Livermore, got me out of work - helped me finish my costume and we were able to get to 2 wineries before the day was over. Ale house for dinner, then to Chip's house for a Halloween/Birthday party. Good Fun!
November has started - I'm learning how to kick a soccer ball for the first time in my life and playing goalie for coed league team. Very fun! Otherwise - I have just been cleaning and fixing up Sebastian's house and yard. Y'all should come by for a visit and we can tune some skis! Or sit out back where there will soon be a little fireplace. Nice!
OH - how could I forget? I have also helped Stefan get his "Jar of Honey" business into action. We sold over $1500 worth of honey this year. Most notable is the selling of honey comb and honey to Boot n Shoe Service right here in Oakland. Part of the slow food movement. They are doing great things.
It is late fall, so the honey production is over for the year, but Patrick and I will be nursing this hive through the winter.
