Make + Listen Along: The Soundtrack

 It's been ages since we could Make + Listen Along!  But, we did it up right this morning.

Sela made the tastiest scones.  Imagine the flakiest pie crust you've ever eaten.  And now imagine it with heavy cream included.  And with a little cream and sugar on top.  Yeah.  (It was from Sticky, Chewy, Messy Gooey Treats for Kids.  Pretty great for mamas, too.)

I made the pillow Linus requested for his birthday.  It's from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing -- I love this book.

And Linus made Lego houses, vehicles, battles, car chases, and all the other bits that come with such things.
We worked to the glorious soundtrack of home: our new fish pump and filter, birds in the backyard, utensils clanging, scissors snipping, lego wheels whooshing.  And not to the soundtrack of "out."

What's music to your ears?  Share your soundtrack!
