I have been thinking about how I want to do this thread for days.
So many ideas. I keep starting & then I change my mind.



Then suddenly it hit me what to do.
For years I have kept randomly picked up odd or interesting things,
my husband & I called it Kender pockets.
I really started it when I was away at college &
when I came home I would show him what interesting things I had found.
We met before I went away to college &
around the time we met I was reading a lot of fantasy novels.

If you don't know about Kenders,
read some of the Dragon Lance series of fantasy novels by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman,
you will enjoy them.
Probably the best known of the Kenders is Tasslehoff Burrfoot.
Kenders are sort of like halflings, rarely above 4 feet tall, small boned, wiry
& more streetwise & cunning than halflings.
They are also known for their curiosity & kleptomania,
which for them is an innocent habit or tendency to borrow things for periods of time,
which is usually when the owner notices that it is missing.
They aren't thieves & are offended when they are called such.
They just seem to find things that have accidentally dropped into their pouches,
they rarely have any items of monetary value in their pouches
because they have little concept of money.
They also have a knack opening doors.

So now back to the memory jar.
I will try to add something different or interesting that I find every day, week or month.

Miscreant & I celebrated our wedding anniversary.
We have been together for a long time, but sometimes it doesn't seem that long.
There are times I can't remember being without him.
We have been through a lot.
He is still my best friend & the love of my life.

It's my birthday this month.
This year was sort of one of the big ones, but not with a 5 or 0 on the end of it.
When people asked how old I would be this year, I would reply with, I will be the "Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything".

Only a few people understood that response at work.
Yes I am a nerd.

Been working on costume stuff for the Renaissance Festival.
Miscreant has been working hard on trying to figure out how to cut patterns & use the sewing machine that finally got repaired at Christmas.

I did a lot of sewing on the coat for Miscreant to wear to the Renaissance Festival.
He has been wanting to work on a Steampunk costume for a while.
Not enough time to finish mine before opening weekend, so I will be going as a faerie again.
I really do enjoy going dressed up.
What really makes my day is seeing the look from some of the children.
I have taken to carrying some smallplastic rings to give the little girls who just seem to be fascinated by the faeries.
It makes them so happy to get something, I sort of got the idea from Twig who gives away flat marbles or stones covered in fine glitter to the kids who stop by to see her. The glitter would be too much to deal with for me.
Miscreant worked on his coat a little more, fixed the trim.
The coat looks great.
He also recovered a hat in the same material he used for the trim.
So much we both want to do, so little time.

~ Opening weekend of the Renaissance Festival ~
Avalei went with us as normal.
We had fun, even if my feet were about to fall off by the end of the day.
Watched the Tortuga Twins, Jewels of the Caravan, and a few other shows.

We went back to the Renaissance Festival again.
This time most of my Steampunk costume was done, except for the coat.
It was warm enough I didn't need it.
Normally we don't get to go twice, but a friend had come for a visit from out of state & she wanted to go.
Her visit was way too short.
Can't wait until she moves out here.
We watched more shows this time including: London Broil, Ded Bob show, Zilch the toryseller, Jewels of the Caravan, The pirate & Bonnie Lass, some minstrels & a slight of hand guy (he was great with the shell game.)

A friend gave Miscreant his old sewing machine. It is for heavier materials.
Miscreant loves it & is now working on a coat as a thank you.

Time for my favorite holiday.
Finally had kids show up on Halloween again.
Its been years.
Of course they were all in one car, but still 5 kids, that is good for us.
Their mom works at the gas station, very nice lady.
She loves Steampunk stuff, she kept asking to see pictures.

The event on Mene just ended yesterday. It was fun as usual.

Whenever I see any of the books at yard sales, Goodwill or a used books store I try to buy them.
I know I'm still missing some of the side stories, but I can't remember which ones.

Yes, spread the glitter!

Going to check the bookstore out... or maybe download an e-book. The Kenders sound cool!

Hello SZP.
I recommend those books as often as I can.
I have a feeling when you find it that Kenders will become your favorite.
