This week J and I are up in the Blue Mountains with some friends from college. We've spent the week so far sitting in front of the fire and listening to the 'cyclonic' wind outside. We've ventured a few trips outside: once to a gingerbread cafe, once for op-shopping, and once for a short walk (which I didn't go for because I had some work to do). We've completed two 1000 piece puzzles, both without a picture to refer to. We've watched a little bit of TV, enjoyed everyone's cooking (but especially S's baking). Many of these friends are the same ones we went away with in Spring last year (you can read that post here). I love these friends, the conversations that we have and the care that we show each other. This has been a wonderful holiday.

Many of us have brought tea away with us on holiday so we've been able to try different teas throughout the week. There's something so lovely about curling up on a couch with friends, sharing a pot of tea. The weather being so cold, has made it feel even more cozy than normal.
Since we're away on holidays we don't have our home WiFi. I've had a few things that I've needed to do this week that require the internet, and so I'm very thankful that I can use my phone to do these things. Technology has progressed so much, even just in my lifetime and so often we take it for granted what we can do with it. So I'm thankful for this blessing this week.
