12 years of Thanksgiving.

2000 we went to Denny's in Canyon Country.
2001 we had a Sushi Thanksgiving in Venura.
2002. My first Thanksgiving that I made myself .. couldn't cook back then and pulled it off without food poisoning anyone.

2003 we were sick.
2004 we were invited to a ward members house.
2005 with Fiorenza & Merian in San Jose. I thought I had a photo of them both with Larry, but I couldn't find it.


2007 at home by ourselves in Acton.

El Salvadorian for 2008.

2009 we had Japanese style baked lobster and we had our first Thanksgiving in NZ.

2010, surgery to remove the line from his neck after the first tenckhoff.

2011. At my parentals house.
Larry was sick after haemo for 6 hours.


I'm tempted to go into town to buy stuff and have something tonight, just us in our house, but I type this at noon still in my pajamas.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
