They didn't tell me the moon would be falling into my backyard today. #fungi #nature #birmingham #Alabama

Middle Eastern Food Festival at St. George Melkite Catholic Church today. Excellent food, pastries for days and #evangelization via church tours. Good stuff. #Catholic #birminghamfood #birmingham #Alabama #food #instagrambham

An eye for an eye. #owls

Sorry if this triggers anyone...we think this is a Wolf Spider carrying her egg sac. Birmingham Botanical Gardens. #wolfspider #arachnidsofinstagram #arachnids #birmingham #Alabama

Mass for the Feast of the #Assumption today at Blessed Sacrament Church here in #Birmingham, truly one of the most beautiful churches in the diocese.
I had never actually been inside the church before today. The parish is home to one of the regularly celebrated Tridentine Masses in the diocese - today's Mass was "ordinary form" but tonight at 6 they will be celebrating a Latin High Mass, if you are interested.
The neighborhood around the church was obviously once thriving, but is now blighted, as is so often the case, to much credit to the parish for maintaining and supporting the church through so much change.

St. Clare of #Assisi today!  Here are some photos from our 2012 trip. San Damiano is the first chapel St. Francis rebuilt and the first location of the Poor Clares - and where St. Clare died. Included in this set are photos of the way to San Damiano, San Damiano itself, the room where she died, the Basilica of S. Chiara (Clare) back up in Assisi and then Ann Engelhart's painting  from ADVENTURES IN ASSISI of the San Damiano Cross, which is now *in* the S. Chiara church, along with S. Clare's body - no photographs allowed inside, so her lovely painting will have to do! #travel #catholic #travelwithkids #Familytravel #Italy #saints

The wonderful mosaic of St. Lawrence - whose feast is today - in the Mausoleum of Gallia Placida in #Ravenna, which we saw last year. #catholic #saints #Martyrs #Italy #italytravel

So much for my great plans. I was driving the boys back from Florida today, and had hoped to stopped at Andalusia, Flannery O'Connor's Milledgeville farm. I hadn't been there is several years, and it seemed meant to be because tomorrow (8/3) is the anniversary of her death. It's good I checked though, and saw that they are closed on Wednesdays (only open Thursday-Sunday). So, what to do? We had a couple of hours before we were to pick up my daughter at the ATL airport and head back to BHM, so I spun the dial and we ended up at the Ocmulgee National Monument - @ocmulgeenps -outside of #Macon - many things happened there, but of most interest are the various Native American settlements which produced some notable mounds.
Not quite Tikal - and it was interesting to talk about the differences in these cultures and what they left behind - but still instructive.
As per usual with the @nationalparkservice, a great little museum, super helpful-docents and a lovely site. One of the best things about America, the #NPS!

Testing out the new camera. I bought it before the trip, but was always shooting on the run. Today I tried to get the #hummingbirds - with very limited success because the camera, unlike the phone camera, makes noise and scares them off after one click. The spider didn't care though. Sorry if spiders freak you out - that's why those photos are not on the front page. #animals #arachnids #photography #alabama

Just put a post up with notes on the food we ate in #Guatemala and #Belize. Link to blog in profile.  #travel #familytravel #travelwithkids #food
