This is my state of mind. After pouring over immigration policy and procedures most of the weekend, I have gotten to the point that if it is meant to be, it will be. This is the point I was at before Hubby gave me the green light to start the migration process. I am trusting the Universe that if it wants me to move, I will find the way, but if it wants me to stay, I will continue to be the change I wish to see in this country.
Thank all of you precious people for the supportive words and positive energy you have given me.
I am so grateful for all of the incredible amounts of things (such as friends) that money can't buy,
I am rich beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you. Heidi

I love clouds and sky, they are just as majestic as the ocean and they are always above you even when the ocean is far away. I find peace in by looking at the sky, I find the NOW when I watch the clouds or stars.
They say that the only thing that stays the same is that everything changes.
This week, everything has changed.
My husband said that we could move to Australia.
I have been thinking, planning, plotting and investigating this very move for 4 years now.
I realized today when I spoke to him that, I knew what it looks like by watching every National Geographic show and Crocodile Hunter episode, that my favorite movies as a teenager were "The man from Snowy River and Quigley Down Under". I have watched every Youtube video on Australia. I tried to win a trip for 2 to Oz last year by entering 100 times on an online wine tourism promotion. My friend tried to get me in on that trip Oprah did last year to Oz. Neither one happened.
I know what they eat, how they talk, all of their holidays and traditions. I find myself stalking real estate in South Australia bi-weekly. I know what it sounds like and have researched it's climate and job openings, how to apply for a visa, got moving quotes and found out if we could bring our cats.
The one thing I wasn't sure about Australia was the way it smelled.
But then I told my husband that, yes I did know how it smelled because Oz is with me everyday in my flower shop. I always have eucalyptus and wax flower, soon I will have lepto and acacia too.
Maybe I have been obsessed or maybe I am just
a Mom who is trying to make sure she gets her offspring to a safe place were he can flourish.
Australia has been singing me to it for 4 years now and finally my other half is in full support.
A relative of mine told me once that I inherited the Pioneer Gene. My Great Grandparents migrated from Germany to the US, what is so crazy about me wanting to migrate Down Under?....... Nothing.
This would be a good time for me to announce that if there is anyone in the Brisbane or Adelaide area that would like to sponsor me or my strapping husband, I can be reached by email: HeidiJaster@yahoo.com
This sounds like prostitution, but I promise it is not, I am not that kind of Heidi.
Thanks for sticking with me all of these years. I am thinking of documenting my journey through this blog.
I am wondering what you all think of that?
OMG!!! I can't believe this is finally going to happen.
I can't wait to see the sky, clouds and ocean in Oz.

If SOPA and PIPA are passed into law, it will be good bye to BLOGS and many many more sites on the net. We have to band together and stop this legislation. Please eduacte yourself about this matter and share it with everyone who enjoys the internet. It would be a very dark day if they censor the net and end our ability to connect with the world and make it a smaller village rather than a big scary place. Click HERE to sign a petition Against Internet Censorship. Thanks, Heidi

I get a kind of high when I organize a messy area, but I am not good with the everyday upkeep.
A few years back I realized that if you have an area in your life that is clean and organized,
then you have controlled that area in your life.
Perhaps I don't feel the need to control every inch of my home or shop on a daily basis?
Or maybe I can't see the real difference on a daily basis, but I can on a weekly or monthly one?
It does feel really good when everything has a place and there is a place for everything.
Found Here Put everyday things in pretty containers and then on a tray.
Found Here. Old book case is great for shoes and purses.
Found Here Put your manuals in clear paper protector sleeves and keep them in a binder.
Save your kid's yearly accomplishments art and pictures in a filing system.
Found on Pintrest. Use egg cartons for storing Christmas ornaments.
Timeless containers are so much prettier than the originals and it gives a more uniformed look.
Found Here Lazy Susans in the corners, genius!
Why do they think Susan is lazy? I know a lot of Susans and non of them are lazy.
This is not my life, they are just some good ideas. I live a life of ORGANIZED CHAOS.
Clean Enough to be Healthy and Messy Enough to be Happy.

Starting off the New Year with a New outlook on Life and our World.
Ace Ventura, Patch Adams, The Nutty Professor, Burce Almighty and Evan Almighty.
He was living the high life with multiple mansions and private jets until
he had a bike accident that almost took his life. He decides to share what he discovers on his journey on what is wrong with the world and finds out what is right with it.
I watched this movie, this morning on Oprah's new network, OWN.
On Sunday mornings she presents Super Soul Sunday where she shares inspirational movies and shows.
This movie was so moving and inspirational that I highly recommend it to the entire world.
It combines history, science and cultural tradition to uncover the fact that we are all connected on a deeper level that we as hunmans cannot understand. And how we have been conditioned from very early on what success is and to compete in life for this success. Now science has discovered that we are not hard wired for competition but for democracy and cooperation and that all of nature is too. I took 2 pages of notes while watching, it was a great eye opener. My favorite part is the Law of Nature where nothing in nature takes more than it needs and when it does, it becomes subject to this law and dies off. For example; a red wood does not take all of the nutrients from the soil and a lion does not kill every gazelle, only what it needs.
We have a tern something in the body when it takes more than its share, we call it CANCER.
Enjoy the Movie "I Am".
If you have seen this movie, I would love to hear your thoughts. I feel like the whole worlds is catching on to this like a wild fire and it is truly exciting to see it in my life time. Heidi
