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.

A tribute to murdered children

Thoughts never spoken


Never shared

A touch or a smile

Never offered

During another’s joy

Or pain

A song never heard

That should have been sung

Gifts never given

That would have been brought

The bloom was cut

And didn’t get the chance to flower

Another life thoughtlessly taken

Before it begun

You know something’s missing

Even though no one else seems to

Only God has the wisdom

To decide

Who should live

And who should die

You will be missed

I can see you are preparing

To go where

Those who love you cannot follow

At least not now

Your spirit remains strong

Your love for us still shines

You’re an inspiration

For us all

Thanksgiving Day – We still have much to be grateful for

Posted in blogging, Family, Personal, photography, Photos on November 26, 2009 by maryrestaino

With the arrival of another Thanksgiving during these trying times, some of us may feel apprehensive about our future. However, like the sun peaking through the clouds this morning, there is always something to be thankful for. This Thanksgiving I am grateful for:

  1. Relatively good health.
  2. No new incurred debt.
  3. Family.
  4. Friends.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
