Born in the Tundra of Minnesota, I have since become a bit of a Gypsy. Currently calling home base the hot sands of Arizona, I do still travel often. Whether the journey is a physical one, or one taken by reading a fantastic book it doesn't matter, the fun is always in the adventure. As always I am an eclectic person that likes a wide array of things and has many passions. Creating, advocating for animals and Mothering just to name a few.

Dragon power and GOT oh my. I am going to for the most part spare you the it’s been a billion years since I posted on this blog, and bla bla bla. Yes it has been a million years, yes I am working on that but also trying not to beat myself up to much about it and YES I am still struggling with the exact direction I would like this blog to take. I am hoping to get that sorted in the near future, I really am. I have been making good headway on my general game plan and with a little more solid help and guidance I think I will get there.


But let us all take a moment to talk about this final season of GOT shall we?


I mean really the dragon!


Be warned beyond this point spoilers doth lay! So either don’t click on read more, or if you have already, stop reading NOW.






Seriously I will be giving spoilers. You have been warned. I know it has been out forever now but people still fuss. SO I am making sure to be clear.

I am still working on sousing out just what BOAN is going to be theme wise, but maybe I just need to let it flow naturally. Maybe it just needs to be a catch all. I don’t know. Setting that aside let me get to the topicĀ  of this post. I want to preface here, that if you are triggered by slightly dark themes or rambling or both you will want to turn back now. I will even put a read more thing here so you have to make the choice if you want to keep reading. It is not graphic or anything, but I am afraid this as the title suggests is not a shiny happy people post. Dark days happen…and I am working on not being sorry for that.

Hello there,

I am sorry is it 2019 already? Goodness. I have not seen this blog since August of 2018. Oh well, I mean I have seen it I just really haven’t had much for the posting. Don’t get me wrong, I love this blog it is one of the OG blogs, but between being busy with life and work and a bit of a feeling of well I am not sure what to post anymore I found myself stuck when it came to this blog.

This blog has gone through a few genre changes over it’s time. It was all about crafts for sometime, and then it was all about snail mail. ThenĀ  it was a bit just kinda sat there. Then a bit about writing. Then a bit more just kind of sitting there. Whoops. That could make it seem like I should just get rid of this one. That is not going to happen. BOAN is in my blood and just because have a little bit of trouble deciding what sort of thing I should be posting on here doesn’t mean I should give up on it.

I don’t give up on things or people that easily.

With one of my hard set goals of 2019 being to find more balance in things that sets working out my blogs and spending more time with them firmly into my line of sight. I have started this already with many of my other blogs..

The Purple Booker (was once Fire & Ice) has seen some improvements starting although I really do need to set about choosing if I am going to do more then just my main challenge for 2019. Either way I am playing catch up on some of the book reviews that need doing there.

Creations of Bastet, a my wonderful site that needs more building on it but the blog is getting some focus and I am very excited about that. I Have some ideas about things I want to share on the blog there. I really hope to make it a great crafty space to come and spend some time. I am also hoping to have some guest bloggers as well. We will see how it goes. So far so good though and while my computer issues have caused some problems and made me fall behind I am not going to let that get me down.

The Purple Gypsy while I have not posted there much yet this year, I do have an idea and a plan in place. Honestly I really just need to get my rear in gear about scheduling some things. At least it is all sorted out so I don’t feel to bad about that.

So what do I do with BOAN? I am not sure yet. I do know I want to have a general idea about it. I work better with at least some sort of theme or plan to work within. That is just how I work. So while I have not come up with that just yet. I will get there, because BOAN isn’t going anywhere.


Hello 2019, I might not always be right on top of it but I am here and I will keep on trying.
