The Eve

“Be silent in a group of people. See what they reveal to you.” – Yoko Ono

That’s some solid advice for holiday dinners. Especially once the dranks are underway.

Since it’s Christmas Eve, it seems appropriate that I post some of my favorite casas… in the snow. Because there’s nothing but sunshine here in the PHX! Hooray for being nostalgic about the snow and not actually in it!

Every year a good friend of mine fromย grad school has an Eve Eve party. The “Arch”ies fly in from the east coast and Seattle. It’s really awesome and reminds me how instrumental they all have been in my life. I really don’t think I’d have survived grad school without them. Or at least I wouldn’t have ended up this awesome. And modest.

Finally, here’s my holiday prezzie to you!

Stretch with boozey nog | 20:00+


Honestly, I am a little skerred about how my hips (yes, both of them) are feeling right now. Low back is tight too. But, I am confident that if I back off a bit and listen to my body, that things will be feeling great again in no time! Gotta start getting ready for Zion. That being said I really wanted to hit it hard this morning. Instead I dropped some weight from the barbell and just focused on moving well.

Yep, you shoulda been there.

No stat block today, just eggnog, whisky, and the Kolding family spread. Happy Holidays!
