Thursday was a busy day and hot too. A LJ friend visited, then my best friend, then a good friend for supper. Between visits, I took the boys out and took photos. Reuben enjoyed playing host to my friends.Harry and Thomas Leo are shy.

Reuben couldn't find a banner specific for the occasion but he thinks Disney is the essence of the USA. At least it is to a young cat!

Just like his namesake, Thomas Leo is a master of solicitation purring and he jumps on me and purrs when he is hungry, just like Leo, then goes to sit behind my laptop again like Leo! Utterly uncanny! He eats enough to feed a horse and is hard to keep up with!

Broken

I'm utterly gripped by "Broken" on BBC 1. Sean Bean is brilliant. It does make "Game of Thrones" look a cheerful show by comparison though!
lindahoyland: (N&N)
I hope you are not out of ideas for our July theme because the theme is exactly that - Ideas.
Any story, poem or picture is born as an idea first. Even the whole Arda was first an idea in the minds of the Ainur and Ilúvatar, given shape. The same is true for any plan or battle strategy: everything begins with an idea. Getting the right idea may be a difference between life and death when you are, for example, captured by Orcs and need to escape, trying to gain some food and water in a barren country, or trying to survive in any hostile environment.

Ideas are also thoughts or opinions, something abstract that takes shape in your mind. Some of these thoughts can be silly, but some are so powerful that they can change the world, especially if they challenge the old views. It could be, for example, the idea of equal rights for everyone or the idea of freedom of speech. You can think of a Middle-earth equivalent of such ideas and their impact on the people there.

This is going to be a bit of an inception since you first need an idea for a story or picture about ideas, so good luck with that!

The deadline for this challenge is July 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!

For writers: send your stories to teitho.contest@gmail.com. The contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.

For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.
Happy writing and drawing!

Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach

The boys

Harry just gave Thomas Leo a bath like he gives Reuben. Thomas Leo was not pleased and Reuben came to see what the squeaking was about.

Harry and Thomas Leo both sat on my lap for a few minutes earlier until Reuben butted in.

Here are a few photos in honour of the solstice. It's been too hot to go further than my backyard. I'll answer comments when the heatwave is over.

The boys enjoyed their trip out then disconnected my internet!

Today I was on my own so I opened the door and sat on the seat opposite. Thomas Leo came and stood on the step, I glanced away at Harry. The next moment he was outside. He had a great time playing with Reuben and was good about coming in.

Harry still pretty much ignores him though they sit on opposite ends of my bed together.

The vet said Thomas Leo could go out and I opened the door to let him explore the great outdoors. Thomas Leo refused to cross the threshold! I shall leave him to make up his own mind as I don't want to frighten him. Maybe he didn't like my friend being there. He is a one woman kitten like Leo, but Leo loved the outside.
