Thanksgiving & Christmas.

I thought Thanksgiving was next week. It was over before it began. Due to a sick husband and study, thanksgiving is cancelled this year in rural Hawkes Bay.

This is an old english rose from our rose bush. It's huge. Just had to share that useless bit of information with you. Now your life is complete.

Decided last year that I wasn't putting my christmas tree up this year. It was knocked over so many times that most of my glass decorations broke. It also takes up alot of space in our small abode. My original idea was to paint a christmas tree on the glass sliding door (ranch slider), but I'd have to clean it off myself.

I went with balloons this year and made use of useless space above the fire place. Never ever ever get $2 shop balloons. Out of the 25 count bag, three didn't have holes in. Almost had an aneurism trying to blow up the long twister balloons myself (before I found a pump) and popped most of them in anger when I couldn't form a star out of them no matter how many times I watched the youtube video.

It works and it's out of the way. They'll all probably deflate within the month, but that's ok. This is proof that I had the christmas spirit in 2012.

He needs to go back on haemo. This is just from my observations. Or else he needs a kidney. Tyler is willing to give him one, but I wonder about her sometimes.

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!
