Brunch For Everybody!

We weren't the only ones having brunch in Westbury today. The DH spotted this red-tailed hawk from waayy across the parking lot. "Is that a hawk?" he said. It was farther away than this when he saw it; what an eye!

     The bird was pretty wrapped up in his meal, so I was able to get right below it without freaking it out. It took one look to size me up, and dismissed me as unthreatening. (I'm okay with that.)

As I Was Saying

We closed out 2013 with an outdoor hockey game in Huntington, on what had to be the warmest December day on record. This is our capable young nephew in the center there, defending his team's goal. Victory was theirs.

And now it's the New Year!

It was a beautiful day for a walk out to the Fire Island lighthouse today; I think it was our first since 2011, the Year of the Iceberg. There were no icebergs today, but it was lovely.
And there was hot chocolate.

Come late afternoon we saw American Hustle, which might be the best movie I'm going to see all year. Seriously, I might have blown it all on the first day of the year, because that film was off the charts. (Is that still a saying?)
