You know, I think we should just keep this thread going forever ...:)

Seeing an old couple walking hand in hand and smiling at each other.

Good food - music and dancing (although, I am a terrible dancer:).

Mr. R's surprisingly sarcastic humor.

The surprise visits when my son drops by and we hang out in the garden together. Blessings:)

Creating something - I'm the happiest when I'm in the zone - writing, photographing, jewelry making, a really special dinner or designing a space/garden.

Anything that stretches the imagination - a new perspective or a new way to design and improve something.

I couldn't agree more! It's so nice to pop in this thread and see all the updates of life's little pleasures :)

I'm going to add: quick healthy meals/snacks like frozen peas or chili from the freezer that I made. So nice to have something quick and nutritious when exhausted!

Muscle over motor and all that, but a nice car ride through the country side or the mountains is gas well spent.  I hike and paddle plenty as well. 

A walk through my pasture can often fix what ails me.

Backrubs are mighty fine.

A dinner of homegrown meats and vegetables is very satisfying.

A clear starry night.

Wild critters.  Especially when they are catching and eating other wild critters.

Finding wild fruit or nuts.

First glimpse of a full moon through the trees.
Silence.

Yes, to silence:)
..... and that amazing feeling of inconsequence of self, when you are way out in nature with nothing but space around your insignificant self.

Laughing with my daughter.

Taking a walk at lunchtime.

Listening to music and podcasts

Fresh brewed coffee I make myself.

Finishing a run.

That extra special silence when there's snow.
The feeling when you don't have anywhere to be and you choose to stay home.
Having a cup of coffee in an actual mug at home as opposed to a travel mug on the way to work.

Rubik's cube; video games!

Taking my son (2.5 y/o) out to explore the trails and pond backing to our neighborhood.
Watching him splash around in puddles on rainy days.
Helping him put his proudly picked flowers from our yard (clover and dandelion) into a little vase by the window to admire.
Toddler bear hugs.
Listening to audio books from the library while cooking.
Long talks with close friends.
Meditation
Taking time to do nothing but watch clouds on days when they are big and puffy backed by a bright blue sky.

- Hiking
- when my kids put on fashion shows that combine star wars costumes with princess dresses (seriously, this is better than any sitcom)
- "shopping" at the library
- getting my meat CSA every month (ok, not cheap but my god it's like Christmas every month)
- taking a nap after my long run on Saturdays.  best.  sleep. ever.
- free tea at work.  whoever stocks the tea with 10 different kinds is an angel sent from heaven.

Surfing. Once you get beyond buying the board and wetsuit it can be 100% absolutely free. Insiders know the free parking by the killer breaks. Hours and hours of pure ecstasy harnessing the oceans energy. Dolphins, seals, big fish, sun , surf. SO MUCH FUN.

The sound of dry leaves crunching underfoot in the fall
The smell that's in the air when spring thaw warms the ground.
Watching tree leaves dance in the wind.
Playing scrabble with my husband
Drinking a cocktail or glass of wine while puttering on projects
Reorganizing a room so its more efficient, getting rid of clutter

That first cup of coffee my hubby brings to bed for me.
A hot shower after working in the garden all morning, followed by a cold beer.
The smell of rain hitting hot pavement after a heat wave.
Watching the fireflies start their show just as dusk falls in.
A hike with a nice view.
The first Sungold tomatoes, sugar snap pea pods, raspberries- they never make it into the house.
Crackling fire on that first cool evening.
Late afternoon sunlight streaming in the windows.
Relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine in the late afternoon.

That first cup of coffee to savor. The Pink-ish night sky you get during a heavy snowstorm. Watching the campfire flames dance. Walking into the middle of a deer herd when out walking in the woods.

That first chill of fall at night (when you're really sick of the summer heat, and before it gets mindnumbingly cold). I suppose the first warm spring day has that same feeling too.

Hiking lonely trails.

Traveling to a new place and the thrill of discovering new things.

Coffee. First or fourth cup.

Long chats on the phone with old friends.

Good podcasts.

Books.

Cold beer after mowing the grass.

Feeeling that tightness in my noodle arms after a hard workout at home.

Making the most of employer paid travel time.

Doing what I love at work and being successful at it.

Talking to interesting people.

Snuggling the babies in my life that have parents to deal with the messy/hard stuff.

Drinking water from my Brita pitcher (maybe $15/year for the filters).

Floating in warm water at the lake (free but seasonally limited).

Playing board games (maybe $75/year for one or two carefully chosen new games/year).

Reading books I already own (free, and I usually get rid of them afterwords).

Taking a hot shower and feeling the soothing warm water (Maybe $0.25 worth of electricity/day).

Fixing things around the house & inexpensive DIY that looks pro quality.
Making things like curtains, roman shades,  other home decor, then getting compliments knowing my only cost was fabric ( which I probably got on sale).
Homemade grilled pizza.
Compost pile - taking scraps and turning it into beautiful soil, home to many worms, makes me ridiculously happy.
Herb gardens. Something about spending $2.50 for a plant and getting enough for all of my cooking.

About 6 months ago, I bought 10 dozen medium eggs for $0.10 per dozen. It felt so great to eat a .8 cent egg compared to the usual 6.5 cent egg.

Also had a 3 egg  $10.00 omelet at a restaurant with my wife this week. Lovely time with my wife, even if it was the financial equivalent of a 154 egg omelet :)

Watching the neighborhood wildlife (this morning it was cats, quail, and rabbits)

Seeing my giant poodles do stupid things... one just learned how to 'drink' from the sprinklers.  Meaning he stands in the spray and tries to bite it.

Waking up with a poodle lying on his back next to me in bed with his head on the pillow.  Makes me laugh every time.

Popping open a jar of something I preserved.

Making things that are ridiculously priced when buying premade (kombucha and french macarons come to mind)

Early morning walks to work through old neighborhoods.

A clean and organized house.  Doesn't happen often, but it's a great feeling when it does.

Finishing a long run.

Eating things I grew myself.

Fishing in the river near the house.
I have a journal! $10 at a time

Listening to my wife and 2 daughters talk at 1:00 a.m. while waiting for me to go outside to try to see the northern lights. I even took longer than I needed just so I could hear them more :)

 Didn't see any, and probably wouldn't due to the large city due north, but we have had great viewings of meteor showers in the past.

Did anyone see the northern lights last night?

Seeing bunny rabbits on walks by the lake.

Smelling the plumeria blossoms which are blooming for the first time on a cutting I rooted last year.

Thunderstorms and rain.

Good thread. Of things that are tied to a monetary value, here's my very short list:

The smell of coffee brewing.
When the grill ignites.
Dry red wine.
Extremely hoppy beer.
Eating something out of our garden.
The feeling of cool air coming through my windows on an early summer morning.
Turning on my fireplace when it's snowing.
Skateboarding while my daughter scooters.

Ha, a year or two ago I snagged a 10 lb bag of potatoes at Aldi for $1.  It was such a good deal I still talk about it now! lol.

I really enjoy road-tripping and staying in cheap motels. There is something romantic about such a huge, infrastructural undertaking like the interstate highways, and the cottage industry of motels, diners, and rest stops that sprouted up so that people could travel along them.

Stopping at a $39 motel and then just staring out into the mountains or the desert or whatever I've been driving through, honestly I'm getting a buzz just thinking about it right now.

I think that this is an experience that will go away within my life too. With self-driving automobiles, we'll be able to travel all night while the "driver" just sleeps.

Hiking with my wife and dogs at the river

Homemade pizza

Smell of rain

Reading blogs

Making sweet tea

One of my happy things is the word "petrichor" - "a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather."

Same. Aside from the smell, my favorite part is that it almost literally translates to "blood of stones":

Quote
Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrᵻkɔər/) is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek πέτρα petra, meaning "stone", and ἰχώρ īchōr, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.

Great thread!

And to add to that, the feeling of a brand new hoodie against one's skin!!

And to add to that, the fact that people in Saskatchewan, Canada refer to hoodies as "bunny hugs" delights me to no end! :)

- watching fog roll in from the Mississippi river in the fall
- watching the sunset

Yes! I have a hoodie I love so much I bought a second one because I couldn't bear the idea of having to part with the first one through misadventure.

The only way to tell them apart is the softness of the fleece inside.

- The smell of evergreen woods
- The smell of garden soil

Sitting on my screen porch overlooking the moss covered cypress trees along the bayou, while having a late afternoon drink, with jazz piano rifts in the background.
