Unfortunately, they lost last night 1-0. I hate that they got the shaft with the "blind draw" and had to play the same team that they played last year. But, I think they made it farther than a lot of people thought they would, so you've gotta hand it to them!
While I was at the high school, I ran into YS with some of his
I've got to show you my find of the week.
It's a pineapple peeler/slicer. I love fresh pineapple, but have never gotten the hang of cutting one up without wasting half of the pineapple meat. I saw this in the grocery store and thought I'd give it a try:
You cut the top off of the pineapple, and start twisting, kind of like you would a corkscrew.
Then, when you get to the bottom of the pineapple, you start pulling it out:
If you've been reading my posts, you know I don't do well with keeping plants alive. I've had these for a whole week, and just look at them:

Check out my "surprise hosta" in the space between the sidewalk and house:
The Air Force Hot Brass Band was so awesome last night! I could have watched the tuba player All. Night. Long. I've never seen a tuba player move like that! They played a lot of '80's and '70's music (and we all know that's the best music!), and, instead of having a bass guitar, the tuba was it. Man, was he good! I just can't describe how good they were. Here's an example:
My Country Tis of Thee (Scroll down until you see the little blue icon near the bottom of the page, then click on the icon.) Warning: It's a little loud at the beginning, but just wait for it. That will give you a good idea of the tuba player: he was jamming!
Meet y'all back here tomorrow!
That pineapple peeler is very cool.ReplyDelete
We got to hear a wonderful tuba player Sunday. So much fun.
No advice on what to plant, we have something we planted that's perpetually green, an annual and spreads like crazy plus has beautiful flowers but I have no idea what it is. Sorry.
I like clover.
Thrift is a good ground cover...and has the most luscious purple bloom. I am a sensory and color girl...so I love Hostas, gerger daisies...anything I can't kill. You might want to put out some mint...it smells good...or rosemary...also smells goodGlad you enjoyed the band last night. I love brass bands myself...and if they play Glen Miller and Benny Goodman I am as happy as a pig in mud. Have a Happy Weds. Today is our first half day....after tomorrow...the kids are gone. Whew....ReplyDelete
I'm usually lazy and buy the pineapple already cored in our supermarket. I love it too...we like to grill it-fantastic!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day!
Sorry the guys lost:-(ReplyDelete
WHAT IS THE EXACT NAME OF THAT PINEAPPLE THINGY!? I need to know! :)ReplyDelete
Do you have sun or shade where you are planting ground cover?
Have a spectacular day!
That pineapple gadget is the COOLEST thing I've seen!! I gotta get me one of those... I'm a pineapple FREAK!!!ReplyDelete
Soccer is over? Now what will you do to fill that void? :0ReplyDelete
The pineapple do-hicky looks so cool!!!!!!
That pineapple peeler is too cool! We don't each fresh pineapple that much, but my husband loves it, and I know this would make eating it a much easier process! ~ Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Sorry your guys lost - but they had a great season so they can hold their heads high!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your little hosta. Around here we call those deer food. I have several and they come back each year and start looking huge and then overnight, it looks like an entire convention of deer attended the salad bar!
Thanks for the link to the USAF Hot Brass Band- that was amazing!
Have a great day! Oh, and congrats to YS and his harem. They're no longer bottom feeders!
I am so sorry for your son's team's loss. My daughter's high school team went all the way to the Final Four before losing in the semi's. And, as you know, her travel team did the same thing. What a wonderful experience though!ReplyDelete
Now, do tell where you found such a marvelous tool? I LOVE that! Sometimes it's cheaper to buy whole pineapples rather than the pre-cut ones. Amazing!!!
That pineapple gadget is way cool!!!ReplyDelete
love the pineapple thingy....now I need a frothy cocktail with a little umbrella!ReplyDelete
I'm so bummed--The gorgeous petunia basket that I bought last week has faded a TON since I bought it. I'm not sure it's going to make it!ReplyDelete
Congrats to the boys!! That's really a great accomplishment.
That pineapple thing is really neat! I'm not a huge fan of pineapple (except on pizza) but I almost want to buy one (and this little gadgt) just to play with LOLReplyDelete
Oh my gosh - that pineapple thing is so much fun!ReplyDelete
It would definitely have me eating more pineapple just so I could play! :)
Have a great weekend!
