This week.

Straightened Hubba's hair last Sunday for church. It had begun to curl again within an hour. Still having a war with the binky, but she's off bottles, finally, and that was only because they were looking and smelling gross and I refuse to buy more for her to lose. (Note to The Livians: Don't give in to those big brown eyes when she asks for a bottle!).

FHE at Mums Monday. We talked about our stall at the community markets Easter Monday. These two were on crack that night. Didn't realize how much I look like my brother until I looked at this photo.

Thanks Aunty Ness for the Easter Eggs!

Now let me tell you about this guy. The HB Online Garage page had an ad for a free billy-goat and since The Farmers love animals, I got the details for them to pick it up. He's a fighter. He scarred Batman for life when he mistook him for a nanny goat. Then he mistook one of the tennis poles on my grandmothers court for a nanny goat and violated it. We've labeled him a weirdo and have offered him to anyone in the community who wants him.

The chickens he got, that looked like they'd had a dose of chemotherapy, are laying eggs! A happy chicken lays eggs. A sad chicken loses feathers.
Yeah, I just made that up.

Tis the season.
Tashy and I went to buy out the stall. First of the season feijoas. I didn't want to give away my secret location, but Tashy is family and more of an avid feijoa lover than I.

The Hawkes Bay people deserve some real chorizo.
It needs to marinate in all the spices for 2 days before it's ready for consumption.

I'm going Mexican food as part of our family stall at the markets day. I'll start the pinto beans tomorrow as those take 2 days in a crock pot to perfect.
8am tomorrow I have a Primary activity at the chapel.
Everyone knows I'm not alive before 10am most days.
*shakes head*.
A full holiday weekend.
MAC's first game tomorrow against CHB.
The only good news from MAC this week is that 3 family members made the 22.
...and 3 of the managements family members also made the 22 and coincidentally, began going to training.

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!
