It’s been a while since I posted a blog, so I though I would let everyone know how I’m doing. I’ve been walking completely unassisted for the last 4 weeks(no walking boot or crutches), and I only have 3 physical therapy sessions left. After that, I might be shifting to a home therapy regimen. I think running is still a long way off at this point, but it’s starting to seem like a possibility again. Alex has actually done three races during my recovery(the most recent being last Saturday), and Jenna actually did one, too!
In addition to watching my kids participate in my favorite hobby(can you tell I’m a little jealous?), I’ve also kept myself busy with one of my other hobbies. Namely this one:
Yep. That’s a beer. More importantly, THAT is a beer brewed by me! My brother gave me a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas, and that was the result. 2.13 gallons of West Coast Pale Ale. And I’ve brewed 4 more batches since then, most recently the Bohemian Bronze, which I’m really looking forward to. I didn’t think I would get into brewing as much as I have, but it’s a lot of fun. My Father’s Day gift was a new 5 gallon equipment kit from Midwest Supplies, and I’m going to brew my first 5 gallon batch tomorrow. I would have done it sooner, but I had to wait to regain some strength in my ankle(a fermenter full of beer is NOT light!). I’m going to brew their Liberty Cream Ale, and I’ll post pics when I’m done brewing, and I’ll try to post a review in a couple of months after I’ve tasted the beer. Have a great day, everyone! I’ll leave you with a few more pics!
