Easter mini Markets

So I made myself sick worrying about the mini markets for our community. I stayed up til 4.45am and slept till 6.45am. I am SO GLAD today is over. It's easily been the worst weekend ever and that's not because it's been the first in 12 years that wasn't spent with you.
Moving forward.
The ceviche wasn't a hit at all except for my family, who are familiar with it. I know I caught my Mum sneaking cups away to eat behind me, but that's ok. At least I know they were appreciated despite they weren't paid for.

It was the tostadas that were a hit. I only made 24 bowls yesterday and 23 sold. Bowl 24 was the model bowl for marketing!

Nessa made cake pops and sold them for $0.50 each. I would have paid at least $1 after all the effort she put into them, but she was happy with her 50 cent price tag.

The Cupcake King Jarom made his infamous cupcakes. My favourite was the mellow puff one.

Shai & Jeston.

The bouncy castle.

Dad & Ngawi.


It really was a good day. I enjoyed it. I told myself I was never going to do that again, but I probably will. Sushi next time. Mexican food is not appreciated by primates.
I tried to sleep this afternoon, but when 3 other people crawl into your bed to spoon and snuggle, it's not possible.

I'm so tired I have a headache.

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!
