No Indoor Soccer
Lots of families have that rule. Indoor soccer is never a good idea.
The oak threshold at our front door was looking a little peaked. I had some sanding sealer and polyurethane left over from the vessel sink project so I have been working on it. It takes several days as it has to dry between coats. I have to leave the door open at least a few hours to dry to the touch.
You should never leave the door open when you have predators for pets.
Rhett is the usual culprit. Look at those innocent, big, blue eyes.
Today it is Ash
They look sweet, don't they?
I heard some thumping by the front door. I saw a small object being batted around the floor. I thought it was the rag or the sandpaper I had been using. I was wrong. It was a dead rodent. I am grateful it was dead. A live one would be even less pleasant.
They get a lot of these small rodents. I think they are Meadow Voles. They look like a brown mouse with a short tail. Kind of cute, but I don't want them used for soccer balls in my house. Even if they are dead.
So I picked it up by the tail, walked to the edge of the lawn and threw it in the field.
Good thing I just put on the last coat of polyurethane. I need to keep this door closed. Hurry up and dry.
