Wasted day in a good way.

Always a great way to start the day with a chainsaw alarm clock. Looked like the Priesthood were cutting trees this morning and creating a bon fire big enough to see from space. My view across the road is getting better with those missing trees. I hope they cut more then I'll be able to see across the paddock. Rural dreams are free.
Did stuff this morning then came home and decided to have myself an afternoon at home with season one of The Last Ship. We're at episode 7 and McSteamy from Greys Anatomy is great on it. The weather called for a lazy afternoon and that's just what we had.

Added some comfort food for good measure because everybody needs cornbread on a rainy day.

Religion tomorrow.
My ward depresses me.
My mantra for Sundays ..
The church is true despite some of these people 
Keep your head down and be effective in your calling.

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!
