Go away summer.

It's been unbearably hot the last few days. We maxed out at 35°c yesterday. It was not pretty. Today was no better and today was the sabbath. The air conditioning was on in the chapel, but that didn't do diddly squat because the ward before us had all the doors open. Add to that my calling in the primary. All those kids were horrible in this heat and there were only 12 of them there out of the normal 40 ... so when I see Mothers sitting on the couches in the lobby on a hot day when they could be in sharing time taming their damn kids ... it makes me think things that may have me disfellowshipped as a Latter Day Saint, but for real .. get off your asses and into classes.

Mate .. I've just created the ward theme for the year.
There you go Bishop.

Add to all of that, having a tired baby during the first two hours. He was a bit of a nightmare today.

I do not like summer. I have never liked summer. You sweat in places that just makes things awkward.

It's just too hot.

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!
