Ish got real today.

With all the woes in the world at the moment, I took the time to appreciate what I’ve been taught my whole life about being prepared. You go into your food prep blindly, but with the trust that what they’ve been teaching us for years and years is all for a purpose.

New Zealand has joined the world in self-isolating. Work will be shut down in 48 hours and a new life for NZ will begin on Wednesday. 

My house is prepared. My family are prepared. I have been harping on about the importance of having a food storage at work for two years and it has rubbed off on my co-workers, who are also prepared to some degree.

I take comfort in knowing that whatever happens, Heavenly Father will not fail us.
Shots from lately ...
48-hours til self-isolation begins.
I just bought two bottles of ketchup from the gas station for $12.

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!
