Sill sick, but keeping it together.

I have viral pneumonia.
I should be wearing a mask, but they make me claustrophobic.
My Doctor told me off for being sick for 3 weeks and only going in on Thursday. Apart from the coughing, a headache and the feeling of straight up hideousness in my chest, I'm feeling fine. I'd like to blame it on the flu shot I got a few weeks ago. They always say you're likely to get sick shortly after the flu shot.

Week 28 - Album Frame Challenge - No.
Week 29 - Two.
I had a great idea to photograph my twin nephews, but that would mean they'd visit and stay all day so I went with the second option, which was ... anything else.

Brother 1 and Mitchy came bearing gifts this morning. Love it.
My old one will get a new home next week.

Enchilada's for dinner!
There wasn't enough for everyone. Sorry Mitch.

My favorite Carpenters song.
I own it like a boss on the karaoke when it's just me and Hubba home.

It's like ... eat your heart out Beyonce!

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!
