Easter Saturday.

This morning.
I dropped some cocoa in the pot last night before I went to bed. My house smelled like hot chocolate this morning.

Added the seasoning.

And the pork, then let it sit for the rest of the day on the keep warm setting.

Sugar-free feijoa popsicles.

Peanut & walnut brittle.

I broke my thermometer last year, but I've made the stuff enough that the color and the way it boils gives away the temperature.

Sent some out to the family and kept a container for the pantry.

The Livians and their happy easter Saturday.
I like this one the best because of the boy.
Everyone else looks like they might very well be a lil bit drunk.

They're all going to be 40 years old with their own kids and still expecting easter eggs from the parents. Rome (mint green ear muffs) was in her own world.

Hub's and Stimpy.

Quick snaps.

The Dog Whisperer.

Hub's loves these puppies. She's dying to have one, but it's not happening. Dogs and their poop are gross. They're very cute though ..

By 8pm the beans were done.
4 containers went into the freezer for the zombie apocalypse food storage.

Even the boy liked it.

It's extremely liberating getting on top of the food storage. There's a reason the church teach about it if for anything, an unexpected rainy day. I am enjoying it, but tomorrow, I rest.

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!
