Not super exciting to look at but after a week of digging out our hillside I was able to put in a predator proof foundation and floor for our chicken coop and run. We have a lot of raccoons, possums, coyotes, foxes and bears roaming our street so I knew we couldn’t skimp on keeping out any digging creatures. Hoping to have everything built in another week or two! #backyardchickens#predatorproof#fantasticmrfox#dig
The temperature has plummeted here in the U.K. which means that the rhythm of the day has been about staying warm and cozy. Fridays are my day for ‘sustaining myself’ - it is hard to constantly maintain the family when running empty oneself. I confess I have been feeling rather lonely this January and I could feel my negative emotion beginning to join the rhythm. So before I got out of hand I acted and met up with some lovely mummy friends for a cozy cuppa and slice of hazelnut cake at the local pub. Roaring fire and good company does wonders at restoring the soul. On Friday nights Mr Bear has to work so Little Bear and I have ‘girl’s night’. I know that this weekly rhythm is so important at maintaining and reassuring the precious ‘mummy/daughter bond’ we have. Bedtime gets pushed back and we spend an an uninterrupted hour together doing whatever we feel the night is saying. Tonight it is so cold that it was obvious that girls night had to be about creating a loving warmth. We started our evening by baking chocolate chip fairy cakes and dancing - is there anything better for creating joy than literally dancing to a rhythm? Whilst our cupcakes baked we made hot chocolates with marshmallows and sat at the family table together, sipping and getting lost in the modern children’s classic ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. A hot fairy cake and 4 chapters later it was time to blow out the evening candle and head to bed. I adore creating our families rhythm, guiding us through the seasons and marking the days slipping past us. But fridays, the change of pace and the focus on relationship and giving my heart what it needs to keep us bound together...why it is a day where the rhythm becomes a song. And I love it.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(⭐️) “We're all different. Especially him. But there's something kind of fantastic about that, isn't there?” Mr Fox steals from Farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean, so they decide to get rid of him. Mr Fox must use all his cunning to save himself, his family and his friends. Based on Roald Dahl’s children’s book this is one of our favourite family films in our household. I enjoy pretty much everything about it: the animation style, the quotable lines, the eccentricity, the voice acting. It’s one of those films we can just watch over and over again. There’s so much for both kids and adults. Perfect viewing for almost anytime. #filmreview#fantasticmrfox#wesanderson#roalddahl
I also made this trash but like fantastic mr fox doesn’t have any vv iconic outfits to get inspired by so I just took inspo from the characters’ personalities now that I’m thinking abt it I should have just tried harder 😁 #wesanderson#fantasticmrfox#fanart
Academy award winner Robert Zemeckis(“Back to the Future” trilogy and “Forrest Gump”) is directing a new version of Roald Dahl’s classic novel “The Witches”. The first big casting news was announced today as Academy Award Winner Anne Hathaway(“Les Miserables”) has been cast as Grand High Witch, a role that Angelica Huston played in the 1990 version. Zemeckis however has announced that he is making a few changes to the setting and time period as he will set his version in the gothic south and in the 1960s. There is no release date for the film yet but with this huge casting, I expect production to start rolling sooner rather than later.#WelcomeToMarwen#SteveCarell#RobertZemeckis##BackToTheFutureTrilogy#BackToTheFuture#BackToTheFuturePart2#BackToTheFuturePart3#WhoFramedRogerRabbit#CastAway#TheWalk#Allied#RomancingTheStone#DeathBecomesHer#ThePolarExpress#AChristmasCarol#Flight#WhatLiesBeneathe#LesMiserables#Oceans8#Interstellar#TheDarkKnightRises#TheDevilWearsPrada#ThePrincessDiaries#BrokebackMountain#AnjelicaHuston#TheWitches#RoaldDahl#WillyWonka#FantasticMrFox#TheBFG @weirdilisa
