Lost my mojo trying to turn a pinterest picture into reality.
It wasn't happening.
My creative juices were not flowing.
For the record, we do not have a Trader Joes here .. it's my bag for 'stuff'.

Manimal child and her swollen face. We went to the dentist today who said her teeth are going to be fine. The Doctor said the impact hit the right side of her face more than her teeth. It's something she has to sit out. In the meantime, she's susceptible to infection and should just stay home.

Bruising. The binky is going to help pull her teeth back out, so she's been granted full 24-hour access to it for the week.

Probably 2 sets of LEDs and it will do for the Thanksgiving centerpieces.
Sis in Law, Tashi, is more passionate about crafts than I am.
She'll correct it.

A year ago I took this photo. Probably the last photo of him excluding hospital and ambulance photos.

The Old English roses are in bloom right on time. I picked the only 2 that were on the bush this morning and they make the whole house a little more brighter.

Miss ya mate!

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!
