day 20

 Thunder and lightening are entertaining my eyes and ears as I write tonight. I have been taking it easy and am healing well.    Resting my leg has helped so much, of course!!!! I had family here the whole weekend so it made it easier to not workout and actually sit down now and then. I enjoyed my time but man is it tiring even if you aren't doing that much except entertaining and running around. Today I went for a walk after the rain, it was so pretty out. last day of rest and  now back to the grind tomorrow.
