Tomorrow is December.

The pool at the Parentals. Edge was SO excited when she saw it this morning and was persistent about swimming even though it wasn't that hot.

Tangy Apples. An old school taffy-like candy. It reminds me of my Church College days when I didn't like to go to cafe for dinner so I had these and L&P instead.

Unloaded from the trip to Auckland last week.

We put up our Christmas tree tonight. I wanted a white tree this year to match my blue lights, but I didn't want to buy a whole new tree and I didn't want to swap my Mum for her white tree because she'd never give my lush green one back. Settled with new lights instead. I just wanted lights that twinkled.

And Happy Birthday to The Fog Horn who is 9 today!
Love you long time Leggy-May!

I love your tree. I think it's beautiful. You should've stopped in on your way up to Auckland. It'd be nice to meet you.

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!
