Quiet is Good?

Is it quiet at your house? 

It surely is at mine. 

Living alone gives you no one to talk with, unless of course, you have a conversation with yourself.

Christmas before last my son-in-law got me an Echo for a gift. 

I'll ask "Alexa, what's the weather?" and she politely tell me what to expect today. I say "Thank you" but she doesn't respond. So much for that.

I say "Alexa, play classical music" and she tells me what the piece is and then I listen to it play. I say "Thank You" but again no response.

And so on. . . .

I recently ordered me a Roomba. You know, one of those round disk that vacumns your floor for you.

I'm getting lazy as well as a bit demented (grin)

I talk to it, too. And, it never answers.

I say "Get over here, you missed a spot." 

or "Come back, you'll get stuck under that bed."  (I hope no one passing by hears me)

It never does what I tell it to... reminds me of when my children were small.

But quiet is good. It gives you time to reflect, to meditate, to plan.

But, enough is enough all ready!

Sure glad I have a cell phone. It gives me someone to talk with.


  1. The beauty is the quiet is yours to control. I always thank Alexa and think she could at least say "you are welcome." Love my robot vacuum. Don't talk to her though, just let her do her thing.

  2. my home is kinda' quiet, the hubs talks a lot!! i don't have alexa but i do have a roomba and i LOVE it. love, love, love is such a big help to me and mine works great!!!

  3. Alex is quite polite, when she wants to be. I learned to say Alexa, thank you and she usually says anytime or you’re welcome.


Thank you for your visit, your comment and your friendship. You have just made my day.
