The first Sabbath of Nov.

Ready for worship.

Shaily and I checkd out Carls Jr this evening yesterday.

Not sure I'll go there again .. only because something in the drive way scraped the bottom of Vecci and a broken car is not worth a Ranch Chicken Burger and an Oreo shake .. not even if it's large.

Had Nessa's and Hubba's birthday cake before Livian goes back to Australia tomorrow.

Nice one Tyler ...

Nessa-Nu.

3D glasses.

Darrell Reid visited.

.. and there were more crackers.

Shops started to sell fireworks yesterday. People stock up because NZ is a little anal about when you can sell them. We use to fashion guns out of pipes when we were younger and play war with eachother on the streets here launching roman candles from them .. those days are over because it's now 'dangerous'.

No one lost an eye in my era from it.
It's all goods.

Fireworks are boring here too now, even here where it rains literally all the time, its a fire hazard. Moss grows on vehicles! Its not a fire hazard. But you can also just kip over to the Indian rez or to Canada and get the illegal ones super cheap.

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!
