This week.

Supposed to go to Auckland this weekend, but as the day dragged on, so did my decision. I'm just not feeling it.

Tomorrow I shoot the local schools class photos. There are only 3 classes at the school and all three have one or two of my nieces or nephews in them. 7 of the 16 attend. Poor school. I offered to do them pro bono because I know they just came off of a week long camp with the seniors and I don't recall any major fundraising through-out the year. They're a low decile school.

Here's a photo of my fridge.

Last week I low-carbed.
That only depressed me.
This week I'm going without meat.
I love fruit. All fruit. All raw fruit.
... and diet coke.
You can never go wrong with diet coke.

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!
