End of week 41.

Ugli fruit from the Grandparentals tree.

Loving these candles right now. I only bought them to make salt & pepper shakers out of the mason jars (these are teeny tiny bottles), but the candles are delish too.

Thanks for giving her a recorder Mum. I really appreciate it, especially during the early hours of the morning when she's trying to whistle out the tune to Tree Fu Tom.

How she wanted to watch General Conference.

How she had to watch General Conference.

We ended up at the chapel helping my Mum feed the few members that came to watch. Everyone watches it now at home because it's readily available if you don't wake up and catch the live online broadcast. I have yet to watch the Saturday afternoon session and the Sunday sessions. It's on the list of to-dos this week. Term 4 of school begins tomorrow so everything will be back to normal. eg. No kids floating around, Mum back at work ... Peace on Earth in other words.

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!
