Much needed rain waltzed into the Bay today. It's not going to be enough to do anything good for anyone unless it downpours all night and all day tomorrow. The tomatillos popped up this year from Jan 2012s seedlings. I think they're confused because by the time they're ready to pick and be useful, they'll have frost bite.
The storm system that bypassed us and moved over Havelock North.

Ngawi and Hubba at Family Home Evening tonight.


This game was awesome.
Ball in a long sock wrapped around your waist .. you pretty much play hockey with your hips and it's hard not to use inappropriate words even at family home evening. I recommend everyone play it with their family.

Happy Anniversary to Sister & Joel who got hitched 7 years ago.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of when Poppa died. 10 years.
Miss my SG.

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!
