Capturing Life in 52 catch-ups.

Week 42: Pets
I have two pets. One's a sloth and the other one bites.

Week 40 & Week 41: Favorite Spot at Home and Winding Down at Home.
For me, these two were one in the same. My favorite spot in the house is everywhere. I love being at home because my home is my palace and I love everything about my house. My night rituals are the same. After the demon has floated away to dream land, I sit at my computer and catch up with the events of the day that I miss. I start with the local news, then the NZ Herald news and move on to 2 US news sites I frequent. I scroll through FBs news feed before blogging. I always end the night with a blog post or reading through my blog roll when there isn't anything to say.

Week 39: Something New.
Our something new will be here in January. Hubba continues to deny her existence. I bought a little baby blanket a few weeks ago and told her it was specifically for the baby, for when she comes and stays the night because believe you me she will! (Livian). She cried and cried and moaned and bitched so much .. the blanket belongs to her now as do the 6 baby bottles in the cupboard above the fridge and the diapers I pretended to have in a closet. As far as she's concerned, no baby is allowed here and I'm not allowed to kiss that baby that is not allowed here. Mitchy at 23 weeks pregnant. She's nearly 26 now.

Caught up!

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!
