Guess what I forgot?

Posted in blogging, photography, Photos on February 10, 2010 by maryrestaino

Both my husband and I went out last night before the snow started, so we wouldn’t have to go out today. We got everything that we needed – except the toilet paper. So I went out this morning and brushed off my car for a trip to my local store. Currently, it is 34 degrees and the snow is still falling as I type this. Driving conditions near my home are good.


It wasn’t so bad, after all

We heard so much about the snow fall that was supposed to slam the Northeast Saturday. Long Island didn’t get too much, though. I took these photographs by Smith Point just before noon.

 Reports say the temperature is 29 degrees, but by the water it usually feels colder.

Another beautiful day on Long Island

It is another beautiful day on Long Island, but oh so cold. Weather Channel reports the temperature to currently be 30 degrees. The forecast says clouds today, and threatens snow tomorrow. I don’t think you can tell in these photos, taken after Sunrise this morning at approximately 7:45 am.

How do you get your teen to clean his/her room?

A source of contention between my daughter and her father and I:

If we don’t do something soon, she will earn a place on the show “Hoarders”. Just kidding, but I’m going to see if I can help organize her things while she’s at school today. Clearly, she’s overwhelmed.

Garfield Monument, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland

I wanted to share with you a postcard you normally don’t get every day: a scene from a cemetery. When visiting a cemetery, I look at the stones, monuments and mausoleums (the outside, of course), some of which are great examples of architecture and creativity. Which people are buried next to each other, or are conspicuously absent, tell silent stories. Birth and death dates, especially of young children, in family plots remind us that even the most successful families with the grandest plots and monuments have also experienced heartbreak.

My two younger cats took a break from playing with each other.

Oh no, you did it again

You’re being what you are


I’m not surprised

Just sad


And lonely
