2 Nov.

Dropped a vase full of yellow roses to Larry this morning.
Tyler planted kisses on the family headstones like a good little weirdo.

We were going to Carls Jr ...

.. but opted for Thai.

Came home for Music Fest practise .. I was never participating, so I hung with Baby Roc. (yep, that's his name)

The All Blacks owned Japan from 6-7.30pm. Japan have only ever won 1 rugby game in the world cup tournaments and it was against Zimbabwe. They'll host the RWC 2019. They offered awesome lineouts, but the All Blacks are just too futile and just when they thought the ABs were ready to concede, Sammy Cane got sinbinned (pointless move ya dumb ref) and that gave black one last zeal of energy to keep Japan from turning 6 points into a potential 13.
Final score 54-6 to NZ.
Richie McCaw .. you brute. He was a loosie tonight (No. 8) and was a machine in aiding the push from the back during the scrum.
Japan, taoshi yagatta-nda!

Went to the chapel to check out the Stake music festival.
How to say it nicely.
Despite the singing was fab from our ward and we were ripped off in the scoring, when you're given apples and oranges to eat and everyone else is given apples and oranges, don't be an ass and have a fruit salad when everyone else is still having just apples and oranges.

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!
