Norma Jean's Methods For Fighting Boredom

We're back to winter. The temperatures last week were in the 70s, but now we're lucky if we hit 40. The skies are gray and I want to crawl back into bed. The dogs were getting pretty excited about warmer spring like days, so this is a setback, but they don't let it get them down. We just had a fast paced game of ball in the back yard.
Norma Jean doesn't care much about playing ball, so here's how she spends her outings.
What shall I do today?

Nobody's watching.


I think I'll roll.

Dad might yell if he sees me rolling, so I'll just do my head and shoulders.

Hmmmmmmm........

 Oh yeah............

Wow, that felt great!

Hey, let's turn this pool over and fill it. What do you mean it's too cold to swim? It feels fine to me.


I told her it's still too cold for paddling in the wading pool, though I don't think she believes me.
Instead, she went inside and splashed all the water out of the drinking bowl. That's my girl.
