Trying to Have a Fun Summer...

...for little to no money. :/ I should be used to that by now, but.. I used to be a lot more fun person. So. I'm trying to do fun things for the kids... I got some "Star" ice cube trays recently. 2 for $1 at Walmart. I thought we could put Kool-Aid in them and have star shaped Kool-Aid ice cubes. Then I thought, why not even do different colored ones?
Even just water ice cubes is kind of fun..

This is something I used to do when our older two were younger. Make cookie cutter shapes in their sandwiches. I would do one wheat and one white piece of bread and switch them, so they 'contrasted'. (Or even darker bread like Pumpernickel (sp?) would be cool..) I don't even eat bread anymore (gluten) so we just get white bread/ whatever is cheapest..

And we made (I mean "I" made) some colored noodles. I did this before, when our youngest was just two. I would have him string them onto a necklace for his homeschooling project. :P I'm not homeschooling them anymore. We just did this for "fun". They are still sitting on a plate. I don't know what he is going to do with them. I'm going to end up putting them in the closet soon before their dad throws them away.
I knitted another dishcloth. The Two Piece Swimsuit cloth. (Don't ask me why I knitted this one... I will never wear a bikini again..) It was one of the dishcloth patterns of the week on Ravelry..

And I saw this one in the Dishcloth CAL on Crochetville.. I wanted to try it. It was kinda fun, and super easy with the video. Tunisian Short Row Dishcloth.

And a top view...
Well that isn't all I've been working on.. Just some of the stuff. I've mainly been working on an afghan; that I was going to save for another post.
We might be having hamster babies in about three weeks.... (I must be insane!!! I let them mate...) I don't think my husband knows yet. :0 I checked with the owner of the store where we got them both, and he said he would take the babies. So I have good homes for them all already. If any of them are cute enough, I want to keep one, too. (If it's a long haired teddy bear.. :D) Well that's about all for now.
