This week.

I read that when you take a course of anti-biotics, the yogurt they suggest you consume to avoid losing good bacteria doesn't work it's magic if it's purchased in the 6-pack pots. I know this. After mini-researching the benefits of yogurt I found that there are none when the yogurt is purchased in a pot. Good stuff is lost. Even those little pro-biotic ones you can buy in the small bottles won't give you the magic you need when fighting off an infection that requires anti-biotics.

Moral of the story. Nan got us one of those yogurt makers. Good for Hubba's gluten intolerance because there are more gluten free flavors and it's a better source of cultured bacteria.
We made some this morning.

Devices have become babysitters. Hubba's iPod is strictly for music and child-friendly music at that. Nothing wrong with a 4 year old listening to Karma Chameleon or The Carpenters. There are no games on her iPod. What games she does have are on my iPod and all four are Sight Word games. Naturally she detests me for it because everyone around her plays games, but seriously .. what's she going to learn from dodging trains?

Sight Words by Grasshopper Apps.

BLT's for dinner last night.

#17 is cooking.
Fifo Craig.
Mitchy is scandalous!

Paying respects at the marae tonight where Charles is laying in state, I witnessed something unusual while watching my Nana (Dad's mum) across the room. I leaned towards Mitchy and asked ...
Did Nana just spit on the floor?
Something I never thought I'd say in my life ... or witness.

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!
