Holiday doings.

My cellphone rang late in the evening last Friday. Totally screened it because I know if it’s important, they’ll ring again or text. My home line rang shortly after. Thinking someone had died, I answered.

It was my cousin, Emma.

Not a death, but an emergency nonetheless. I was needed to help cater her brothers wedding. The wedding was the next day. I was sent a picture of what they wanted. A grazing table

I said no twice. The amount of time given was not awesome and just didn’t want to go despite it being the marriage of my first cousin. I finally said yes only after she told me there were three of them for an average sized group. 

I met up with her later in the night and quickly brain stormed a few things. 

It all worked out, as you can see.

Tuesday I took a quick trip to Hamilton with the youth in the ward for temple baptisms. 
Found some chi of my own while there.

The school holidays are coming to an end. I dreamed of sleep during my holidays, but as you know the circus has been in town and will be til the weekend. Just in time for school next Monday and the day shift.

Squad goals.
I’m getting old ...

... but our blue eyed boy is just getting started with life.

He’s my little love!

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!
