Week 32 of 2019

Mickey Mouse and his friends took me back to a life in California with my Love. It took me away from reality for an hour and 40 minutes and made me envy that Hub's doesn't know the reality of what's going on around her. I ended up dragging my Mum along with me to The Waikato and Nessa-Nu. They both came willingly. I'd travel with them anywhere. They're both comforting in their own way and make any trip complete.

It was a quick trip there and back. We left Wednesday morning and we were home by Thursday evening. Made a stop in Taupo on the way through.

Hard to believe she's going to be 9 next month.

We had front row tickets. Ness had a VIP ticket that was $44 less than the front row tickets. She sat RIGHT behind us. The people right up in the nose bleeder seats had the best seat in the house.

I've been educated. Don't get front row or VIP seats.

Life is picking up pace.
19 more Wednesdays til Christmas.
Work is my solace even though when I'm at work it's far from consolation, but is a good temporary relief from home.

I want to buy a comfortable arm chair so I can come home from work, sit down and read a good book before bedtime.

I want a simple life without distractions.
We create out own struggles.
I want to find joy in finding an armchair and not fixating on the current situation of others.

Challenge to myself before the end of the month.
Find an armchair.

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!
