Yesterday ..

.. when all my troubles really did seem so far away.
I've had an emotional weekend.
Took the girls to Napier yesterday.

Fab day for it and Iron Maori hadn't shut the roads in Ahuriri, the Perfume point side.

Hubba-Lush and the dress from "Uncle Clarrys Mum".

Romey, all dressed up for winter.

Left-over lunch.

Throwing stones at seagulls.

See her fat lip? Mitchy found a cyst on her top gum Friday night. It got bigger yesterday and we wound up in the emergency department because it had grown bigger and had turned black. Woke up this morning after 1 round of anti-biotics and all was well.

Hubba's first photo with the DSLR. I do not want her to be a photographer (like Tyler wants to be), Hubba's going to be a Doctor.

Our Christmas stockings. I've had these since 2000.

Our blue tree.

These guys.

Hoping for a better week next week.
"I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee" - and b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

yikes, that cyst sounds like when daniel got MRSA on his face. your body walls off the infected blood in a pocket and it just kind of stagnates. did they have to lance it, or did the antibiotics work by themselves? glad shes feeling better!

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!
