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.

Teitho: June challenge "Misunderstandings"
Thu May 25, 2017 6:59 am (PDT) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia

Misunderstandings is the theme for June, suggested by AcrosstheTallGreenRiver.



Between strangers, they can lead to hostility, between friends they can lead to quarrels. And it's so easy to misunderstand someone's words, actions or intentions...



Different races or cultures can be a source of misunderstandings as well, as a certain word or gesture can have a different meaning for them. Such misunderstanding can happen at the royal court of Gondor, for example, with the ambassadors from other lands, but also in the Shire while enjoying the hospitality of Hobbits: Bringing a present to a birthday party, instead of expecting to get it? Faux pas indeed!



The deadline for this challenge is June 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 mailto: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 http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ 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!

I felt sad as the robin was trying to protect its chick, which was half dead in an outhouse. I think my boys put it out of its misery. It's sad so many birds don't survive, but I hope my garden behind the yard is a good habitat.

My tulips, which cost all of £1.49P have been amazing.A friend planted them and I forgot about them till they bloomed.

Teitho: May challenge "Habits"
Tue Apr 25, 2017 1:31 am (PDT) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia
Do you have a habit of writing for Teitho? If you don't, you can always make one! This month is especially good for that, because our theme for May is Habits.

Habit is a second nature, it is said. A habit is any activity that is repeated regularly, whether it is healthy, like exercising, bad, like smoking, or neutral, like meeting with friends every Thursday. What kind of habits do people in Middle-earth have?



Smoking is a known one, but the unhealthy effects of it were not yet known in Tolkien's time, so it doesn't seem to be a bad habit in his world. Maybe they have a different kind of tobacco... Aragorn or Legolas could also have some training routines to improve their fighting skills, or maybe a habit of reading history books. But sometimes there just are no history books around, which brings us to the next point:


There may be habits that are possible to be followed only in a certain place and circumstances. How does it feel, having to go without it for a long time? And how does it feel, returning to the habit again? As circumstances change, it can also happen that one habit replaces another.



Whether writing for Teitho is your habit or not, we are looking forward to your stories!



The deadline for this challenge is May 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 mailto: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 http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ 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!

My latest photos, mostly of the boys and flowers. My 96 year old friend planted some tulips for me which I found in a leftover supermarket bin for 99P. I'm amazed how well they turned out.
