Tuesday - Wednesday

Mini Mana Wahine making her own dinner.

Winter is coming.
I made them move one apple bin of wood to the other side of the shed. They moaned their asses off, so I made them move the bark that was at the bottom of the apple bin into the blue bins provided. They moaned again, so they'll be weeding on the weekend.

Pak n Save now have online shopping for our area. It's the best thing ever.
I was pretty excited about my first Click & Collect today that I got there and hour early just to watch the dude put our shopping into the lockers. I'm going to shop like this now .. I'm all about making better financial decisions right now and the supermarkets is where I get lost and spend more than I should. Example ... Cadbury Cream Egg chocolate bar 2 for $3.50. Why I needed ten blocks for that price? Because it tastes good. Shopping online takes my eyes away from the stuff I want so I can focus on what I need.
Kia ora Pak n Save.

Saving the best for last ..
Shaily surprised us and came home from Australia today.
She belongs here with us being country bumpkins ... besides Ness and Coral can't drive yet and we missed her Uber services to town for chocolate and Pepsi Max at 9pm at night.

Error .. the best was the secret feijoa spot opening for the season.
Paulette, tonight we bowl preserve.

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!
