Last week of August 2016

That TTPA decision was a good decision.

Big girl no longer needs the car seat shopping carts. She can sit up all by herself AND .. she can count to twenty. Not really, but she's that awesome.

I only like SnapChat for the filters otherwise, I would not have downloaded it twice.

Spring is coming.
Last week she had chicken pox for a second time. I took her to the Drs when the incubation period was almost over. I thought it was nothing until a school newsletter came out with a chicken pox alert. She stayed home for two days and drove me insane. She wants to go to Auckland for her birthday next Friday and her Aunty up there has bribed her enough to want to go so bad.

The weather is getting warmer, hence the tea party today after church. It's officially Spring on Thursday, but the last winds of winter won't leave us until mid October. I wagged church today because I'm still harboring bitterness about my ward. I love most of them there, but some of them are bloody impossible.

I already have Monday-i-tus.

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!
