Your prompt word for today 21st january is echo!
I love my amazon echo. I have the echo dot. I love it because it makes things so accessible to me, being that I am blind!
Alexa is sooo cool! I know people might think its freaky, or weird. Or that its freaky that she’s always listening to you. I dont really think about it too much, otherwise I might not want to use it!
I love how I can ask her things like give me a quote, a joke, or a recipe! And she does it and she’s really accurate!
I love how I can ask her for the traffic in my area, the weather for anywhere in the world, or any question actually. There are also skills you can enable to make her more intelligent!
You can listen to music, read your books, set alarms, make lists, shop etc. Its amazing and awesome what you can do!
I have two echo dots now. One is in my kitchen and one is in my bedroom.
I am so glad I bought them! They have made my life much easier and I really enjoy learning about the different skills and each week alexa adds new skills too which is nice! She’s always learning to be more intelligent!

Did you know?
That today is Ming Dynasty Day? In 1368, after driving the Mongols out of China, Zhu Yuanzhang proclaimed the Ming dynasty. As the new emperor Hongwu, he ruled for thirty years. During Hongwu’s reign, the Ming Dynasty was characterized by rapid and dramatic population growth, and living standards also greatly improved.
I hope your week has been empowering and I send you my prayers and blessings for the new week!
But now a little poetry…
A sand castle
Like no other
I just watched a program about weird homes and this man seems to have hit the unconventional jackpot!
well my plan to stay home has changed! my friend norma rang me. she isnt going out now to her brothers house so she said if I wanted to come over she’d be available. so I am going to go to visit her this afternoon. at 4 PM. I’ll stay for a couple hours. She doesnt have many visitors or friends, so I want to try to be there for her. We are good friends. We actually have known one another for years, we went to school together, she’s a couple years younger than me though. We both have mental health difficulties, and we’re both blind, so we have plenty in common. It will be fun to go hang out. I’ll enjoy that. I wont bring nitro. I will just go on my own.
