Having the house to just myself and DW on a long weekend. Seriously, the older I get, the less I tolerate other people in my space, my wife is the only one who doesn't trigger the nails on chalkboard stress feel.
Plans are useless. Planning is indispensable.

I can relate. The next three days I will be home alone and I'm looking foreward to it. Especially because it is just for a couple of days.
Next week my DH will be home alone for three days.

What I have trouble with is spending the whole day with my colleagues. This was the case last week when we had an event in a hotel. I managed to get an hour of private time in my room.
Next week I will see my colleagues three days and having breakfast, lunch and dinner with them. I hope I will be able to find some time for myself in between. Maybe a little walk in the parc before the conference starts.

Small thing that make me happy is to check off a task in my Doit app. Great to get things finished.

I eat at my desk well working and then use my lunch break to go for a walk outside to get some alone time at work and help unwind and get exercise. It keeps me sane(r).

God yes.

I had about six weekends in a row where we stayed with friends, then had people stay with us, then had several weekends of multiple functions. I was so worn out by the end of it I spent a day inside, blinds shut, watching Netflix. Usually I will potter around, ironing or cooking or working on my laptop, but this was just a pile of cushions and me wrapped in a blanket. It sounds lazy but it was so restorative.

It's something I'm trying to keep in mind, as you say, as I get older. I look at my diary and think, I could catch up with Friend A over lunch then Friend B over dinner, but I know I'm likely to be done with people after lunch, so it's better for everyone if I leave some space in my schedule.

Today's fun for free is going to a nice place to do birdwatching! It is fall migration still here in FL..
We check on ebird.org and see where the hotspots are in our area. Love that site.

It's amazing how easily and quickly people lay claim to your time and weekends.  While it's fun to see people and socialize,
I'm not into the non-stop getting together with friends and family.

  I can be quite happy by myself doing something stimulating, intellectual, or just plain outdoorsy.
Some folks seem to get lonely if they're by themselves for more than 6 hours!
Beware of becoming very close to people like that.  They will be constantly calling you and dropping in .... working to make themselves your top priority.

Having a really slow paced breakfast. Enjoing the nice view from the window, watching the birds, reading the online newpaper, surfing on this forum, making plans for the day.

Sometimes I do this on a weekday as well and use 20 minutes extra for my breakfast. It gives me a moment of relaxation at the start of the day.

Working in the garden on a sunny day, then enjoying a cold beer with my SO afterwards as we survey our handiwork.

Totally agree on a weekend at home by ourselves - I love having guests but I need my alone time!

Looking for images in the clouds, or in other places that they sometimes hide.

Bird watching.  I especially like crows, humming birds, woodpeckers, any soaring birds.

Fish watching from a pier.  I enjoy feeding them too, & occasionally catch a few. 

Having bonfires.

Getting creative with leftovers.

1. Finding severely discounted candy after the holidays/close to the sell by date. This also falls under the MPP category. Many times I have to stop myself from buying more than a couple of bags of "snack size" candy for .50 a bag because I already have a few other bags still uneaten.
2. Getting a compliment from a complete stranger on purse/piece of clothing I'm wearing. I'm proud to respond that I got it at a thrift store for a dollar!!
 2a. Them not cringing at where the item came from.
3. Getting "free item" emails from Starbucks, Peet's, Krispy Kreme, Raising Cane's, Auntie Anne's pretzels, etc. for my birthday.
4. How good I feel after a good nights rest.
5. Buying a responsible amount of vegetables.
 5a. Actually eating all the vegetables.
  5b. Actually enjoying the vegetables.
   5c. enough to purchase, cook, and eat again in the near future.....not, like, years later ;) I just found out that I enjoy cauliflower and cheese(it's like mac and cheese) way more than any other method of eating it.

- learning about things of interest to me, or things that make my job easier/more engaging
- nature...even just walking on the rough brick in the backyard, barefoot, on one of my work breaks
- training and interacting with my "flock" (parrots)
- interior design and architecture (ok this can be expensive, but I get a lot of pleasure just sketching or typing out inspirations, collecting photos etc)
- driving around neighborhoods in the morning and late afternoon, looking at houses, and how other people in the community live. I especially feel peaceful driving through farming/ homestead communities. Sometimes one of my parrots comes along for the ride
- life-mapping and goal setting.  I have a huge whiteboard in my room that has a Calendar on it but also plenty of space for writing little notes to myself. I like to set mini goals and put down things I want to accomplish this year or eventually.
- helping my grandmother in her garden
- movie nights with my mom and siblings
- planning trips we'll probably never take (at least in the near future), with the old "gang". Families, schedules, and distance has kept us from being able to all meet together at once. But it's fun to exchange vacation  ideas.

I love homemade stock as well. I did however have to learn how to make it because no one in my family made it. I suspect a lot of the "make things from scratch" movement has to do with a lot of families having already lost these recipes and techniques and thanks to the internet, we can find them again. I know our oldest recipes only go back 3 generations. Due to a sick childhood my grandmother didn't learn to cook until she was 28 and newly married so we have definitely been working to rebuild our ability to cook. At least I started with knowledge from my mother and grandmother. My husband didn't learn to cook anything until after he started dating me. My husband's mother also had to experiment with her mother's recipes until she could make them again because only the ingredient list, not the recipe had been written down.

Online recipes make me happy. Being able to learn at a moment's notice how to make that dish I am craving is absolutely wonderful.

The healthy sautee is my new joy! I started doing this earlier this year, and have not cooked with any oil since. Only using raw oil - EVOO and cold pressed coconut

A thin layer of vegitable broth in a pan, with any vegitable. Heat is on med-low, once the broth starts to steam, add the vegetables and cover, cook for about 5 minutes.

I've been doing home grown beets in that with salt and pepper and little lemon juice. So good! The delicate flavors of each vegetable standing in their own right.

Had broccoli out of my garden for the first time this year. So delicious! Raw, the home grown broccoli has this amazing sweet taste up front, with a spicy note and an earthy slightly bitter finish. Really amazing how much flavor my home grown had vs the grocery store.

Also grew carrots that were amazing.

I've been doing so much with ginger lately. After a healthy sautee of a vegetable medly - adding a homemade peanut sauce. It's so bomb!!!!

Fresh ginger, finely minced, freshly ground peanuts, tamari, fruit vinegar or rice vinegar, at least 7 cloves of fresh garlic, EV olive oil, garlic chili paste, and filtered water to the consistency you want. You put this on top of the vegitables, add some beans and rice. WOWWWWW it's so good. And so inexpensive!

Bonfires are great.

I've been limbing up a lot of old oaks & instead of hauling the limbs to the curb in reasonable size piles each week I decided to have a few bonfires.  The place is on a lake with a wonderful view to the West.  My wife & I go over just before sunset and with a few beers & some simple snacks.  It's been really nice.

$20 for a bag of daffodil bulbs.
Yellow flowers in April/May and the ability to divide them in the fall. I've been doing this since 1981 and last year I counted 186 daffodils in my yard.
It makes me very happy

Having my hair dryer on a hook and positioned to blow its warm air to the middle of the bathroom.  When I'm in a rush I turn it on after my shower to have it dry my hair as I dry with a towel.
On cool mornings like today, I turn it on and let it take the chill out of the room and the tub as I get the cloths I will put on after my shower.
I do this too! Our bathroom floors are stone, and the bathroom entry is merely an arch to the bedroom. There's radiant heat in the floor, but it's expensive and silly, so hairdryer to the rescue! I set mine on a non-skid pad and aim it towards my towel. It warms the towel and the air in the room. Nice!
I did it! I have a journal!

Making cookies.

Cookies, and the making thereof, have become my concentrated, encapsulated, personal symbol of FIRE.  It's what I tell myself I will do, and have TIME to do, once we hit FIRE.

My company is going through a divestiture right now and people's jobs will be changing or getting eliminated.  I have not yet learned whether I'm on the chopping block or not, but I don't actually think I much care about how it turns out--so this weekend, for the first time in more years than I can count, I made cookies.  It was WONDERFUL--and they were DELICIOUS.

Come to think of it, a nice severance package or retention bonus would be awesome.  So I guess "losing my job" can also go on the list of cheap things that make me happy.  ;-)

Got a new tool box, and was trying to figure out a cheap material to use to line the drawers. I then remember that I saved some laminate material from last year when we re-do the flooring at one of our rental. Free, and if these get dirty, I can just cut up some new ones.

Another cheap option is to grab a roll of non-skid shelf liner at your nearest Dollar Store. Has the added benefits of well, non-skid, but also dampens sound, which is kinda nice, and it's super easy to cut to fit. I know they sell it, because in my pre-FIRE days, I used to sell it to them by the truckload. Made a lotta money that way.

Going to one of the lakeside parks, sitting there and watching all the water birds. I always feel calm next to the lake (it's a man-made lake but doesn't matter).

Following cute animal accounts on social media.

Sitting on the couch with DH and cat in peaceful silence. (ok, silence isn't always guaranteed because someone small and furry often has to tell us aaaaall about her day of napping and grooming and eating and napping etc)

Ice cream cone.  My wife and I like spending time together just not always inside the house so going to McDonalds with our dogs for just an ice cream cone together is something we do a lot. It is time out without eating a complete meal out.  I don't own a cell phone so we actually talk to each other too.

Completing a piece of writing I began several days ago.  Although to any observer it looks as though I'm sitting at my desk not moving much, mostly thinking and once in a while pecking at my keyboard, I feel as though SOMETHING BIG HAS HAPPENED.  It's so cool.

I made another batch of cookies to celebrate.  :)
