Mothers Day.

Happy Mothers Day Internets.
I got eggs on toast for breakfast with two chocolates that she ate and a note that asked if she could sleep in my bed for Mothers Day. She's been in my bed for the last two weeks so I said no.
Alas .. as I thumb this on my device, she is asleep next to me.
Extra pleased she didn't put jam on my eggs this year.

The Photo Shoot.
She asked me a few days ago. I did not want to oblige.
The good thing about shooting family is that you can tell them what to do.
The bad thing about shooting family is they try and tell you what to do.
Tyler's little family.

Perhaps I've said it before, but my iPhone does a better job than my DSLRs these days.
These are DSLR photos.
Praying for another two weeks of Level 3 Aotearoa.

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!
