[oops, sorry, photo removed]
The boys have a natural tendency to seek out warm spots for their play. In the winter sun, the fluted glass on the front door glows and radiates warmth all day long. Often enough the boys play right in front of it, like they are in the photo. I love this door. I love its light. But it does have drawbacks.
You can't really see details through the door but you can see movement. So when some solicitors appeared to be making their way down our street, we abandoned the picnic and headed for other parts of the house.
Yup, we hid, before they saw our movements through the door and realized we were avoiding the doorbell. (I don't always do this.) I think I need one of those No Soliciting signs. Do you think they work?
