thrifting & fireworks

daiso st vincent thrifting stash 1

On Friday I went a-thrifting. Well, the top row was from Daiso, which isn’t technically a thrift store; but economically, it’s comparable. The ties are all from St. Vincent de Paul, they were a buck each. Total cost: Less than $20.

We didn’t have our big block party this 4th, a lot of people went out of town because they had a 3-day weekend. So we had a smaller party at our next door neighbor’s. I contributed a rack of babyback ribs with an apricot-orange jam and soy sauce glaze, and a bunch of sparklers. Fireworks are illegal in Fremont, but still legal in Newark, a little town that’s an enclave of Fremont. So pretty much everybody in Fremont flouts the law with impunity, especially since the cheap bastards stopped providing a public display a few years ago.
