Alexa In The House

By the kitchen window stands a cylinder shaped speaker, we have had it since 2014. I have to be honest this speaker has been so useful to all of us, I can’t imagine living a whole day without it. I mean that is possible and I’m probably exaggerating but it is one thing that we use daily, it is fun, helpful and entertaining. It is the Amazon Echo but we have changed our wake word to Alexa.

They stand tall welcoming you with open arms. In between the two trees there is a paved walkway that leads to the porch, front door. That’s right, you have found yourself standing at our front porch. Now you wonder how on earth...
