Wrapping up October.

Avi needed to know what a Chit Chat tasted like.

She said it was good.

The Halloween fiasco.

Trunk or Treat at the chapel last night was a success. I only went to pick up my BBQ and got roped into staying longer than I wanted. It was also freezing last night and there is snow on the montanas today.

I don't know what she was supposed to be sitting in the back of her car with her picnic basket, but her's was the first trunk we stopped at.

These three.

Harry Potter was there.

And  the popular clowns were there.

The whole community was there.

Plus a few Hastings wards.

I was over it last Friday.

Ngawizzle the one legged zombie.

Best costume of the night I think.

Shaily and her squad.

Hubba and Ngawi.

The BBQ I came for.

Happy November!

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!
