Sunday Mise en Place (May 15 to 21, ‘017)

Good morning.  Good afternoon.  Good evening.  Good weekend.  Good day before Monday.  A happy Sunday to all.  It’s time for the ol’ G.O.B. Sunday Mise en Place.  Recently I received a message from a concerned follower that I was not giving the French the proper credit for the phrase “Mise en Place”.  So, thank you um,… French.  Of course I took the phrase from the common culinary term referring to having all of your ingredients, tools, and equipment ready to go before you get started cooking.  In terms of this blogging Mise en Place it’s about having last week wrapped up, having a plan going forward, and sharing with everyone where my heads at, or you know, what’s going on.  Might as well start there, so, what’s going on?

What’s Going On-

By now hopefully you’ve noticed the new images.  The Green Onion Blog has a fresh, more professional look.  Honestly, this is something I’ve been trying to get done for a long time.  I was hoping to have my brother, who is my favourite artist, create a new logo for the blog.  Unfortunately, I have lost him to the world of Pokemon Go.  With my one year of blogging recently passing, I decided it was important I did something now.  After a lot of trial and error, a lot of ugly logos, a lot of different apps, I finally landed on the simple design you see today.

I love the new design.  I’ve been playing around with colours, patterns, and style.  The onion is simple and fun, and I have incorporated it as part of a rating system for my book reviews.  As for the rest of the logo, I like to think the triangles represent the Rocky mountains that I call home.  More so, there is a tiny point at the bottom that would point to where I am.  Not quite in the mountains but with a darn good view.  Other than that, the overall symbol looks like a space ship, considering the dork I am, it’s fitting.

Other than that, what’s been up?  We’ve been trying to get our kids to commit to an extra curricular activity for the upcoming summer.  It’s one thing to try to get a small child to choose one thing.  But, between navigating the many options, the costs, the facilities, it’s actually become quite the ordeal.  Luckily, Jenn’s fantastic mother has been helping a lot with it, and is trying to find a karate dojo for Alex right now.  As for Zyler, it may prove impossible to get him to focus on one thing, and we may need to give him a few different activities to try out this summer.

Upcoming-

Been working on a couple posts, I was hoping to get one out yesterday but we had a really good podcasting day.  Currently we are about 1/3 done the recordings for the first season.  Anyways, there is a Choice Cuts on the way.  I have another Sanderson review.  And, I have found my new favourite video on the internet that I cannot wait to share with you.  And, well you know me, anything could happen on the G.O.B., so be sure to check in on the regular.

Thanks booknerds, aWooo-woo.

    Soo… when I saw the logo, my first thought was “Oohh the Dark Tower of Onion!”
    I had Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Times, and Dark Tower jumbled up in my head because I was just talking about them so that’s what came out.
    I do like the new logo, though. And now that you say spaceship, I now see it as that.

    Over time, that logo will be many different things to many different people. Very post modern. Give yourself a hearty pat on the back!

  3. The new look is super sleek and refreshing! So easy on the eyes 😉 I have to admit (even if it makes me a jerk) that I giggled about you not giving proper credit!
