Shoes. Why do these shoes remind me of Charlie Chaplin if he lived in modern days? My mom usually fills them with flowers, but today they were empty. Not exactly black and white, but pretty close. What a hot, hot day today. Days like these make me feel so exhausted and tired. Getting plans ready to head up to Canada in the next two months. We’ll probably stop by Boston too since we’ve never been there before. It seems like every year we go to a different country. I wouldn’t be surprised if we go to Brazil next year. I’m still tempted to run off to Belize for the weekend and find a cute little cottage in the jungle or a private villa in the Virgin Islands. Hope everyone is keeping cool. Heard one of the worst thunderstorms in my life at 5 AM this morning. I was expecting fallen trees and branches all over the place, but everything looked in order. I know when we have random tornadoes hit our area, it looks like a war zone. Remember last year the freak earthquake? I never knew walls could sway like they did that day; the weirdest sensation I have ever felt.
