  •   jdmaleski We saw that sign when we drove through back to VA from TX. I kind of like the "leave us the h*** alone" attitude about it. 24h

amy_welborn The way form to the basement at an estate sale today. More in comments. #bham #estatesales #scarybasements #pinup 1w
  •   amy_welborn Estate sales are always interesting to me. Sometimes the homes are pristine and well-cared for. Other times...they are not. This home (in Bessemer) was a large tudor, but inside was a dump that was falling apart and hadn't seen a cleaning in at least 30 years. I heard the estate sale person say that owner had been a 95-year old woman who had died in July. I'm presuming the basement reflects her (I presume)late husband's interests - it was falling apart, too, but full of workshopy/tool things, and the stairs down to it were lined with 50's pinup images... 1w

amy_welborn The former St. Mark's Catholic 1w
  •   amy_welborn Okay...that got swallowed up. The former St. Mark's Catholic Church in the Thomas section of Birmingham. One of the earliest constructed after St. Paul's Cathedral. Built for the Italian immigrants who had settled in this area. It was closed in 1997, and a new St. Mark's was built in another part of town. I read something interesting about the stonework once, but I can't find it now. #bham #instagrambham #alabama #catholic #christian #italy #sicily 1w

amy_welborn This started an assignment to write dialogue, using the punctuation rules he had studied. Now it is the beginning of a book series, he says. Which. I assume will have dialogue, thereby fulfilling the letter of the law. #homeschool 3w

  •   fancydori Lucky kids. 3w
  •   amy_welborn Dori,it's the "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" - a no-knead recipe in which you dump flour, water, yeast and salt in a container, stick it in the refrigerator and then a day later, form a loaf, let it rise and bake it. I don't mind traditional breadmaking,but this is just too easy and very good. I usually get three loaves out of one batch. 3w
