We were running late for church this morning. We missed our usual 9 a.m. mass, so I used the internet to find the next service being offered in our vicinity. I found a church with an 11 a.m. mass that we had never attended before. The church was St. John the Baptist in Folsom – a beautiful, historic country church. Just the building itself was a treat for the senses! I know that these pictures are not the best quality. It was storming when mass ended, and everyone huddled in the church for awhile until it cleared enough to leave. I didn’t want to be too obvious/obnoxious with the camera.
After church, we drove to my in-laws house for lunch. When I got out of our car, I nearly stepped on this snake. It slithered off into the ditch while I screamed! Thank goodness it was just a garden snake!
