A really good choir rehearsal.

Thank you, OtherJen, for being in a choir.

I love going to free college recitals by sopranos and mezzosopranos, singing 19th century art songs, with just a piano accompaniment.  Beautiful, life-affirming,
mindblowing, and all free !!   

 If there is a choir performing free, I go to those too.
I started going to a local barbershop chorus about a year ago.  My schedule keeps me from going more than about once per month, but I enjoy it when I get to go.

Caught a local high school choir performing at a church. They had a soprano soloist for one song, accompanied by piano. Strong, clear, firm beautiful voice, even with the high notes, which is not always the case.   

I wrestled with whether or not to compliment the soprano afterwards. I did. She said she was hoping to make a living singing, after graduating from a 4 year music school. I told her I thought she would be a success due to her beautiful voice.

All the choir love on this thread makes me happy!  I'm with you.  Our two highschoolers are both in choirs.  Their choirs perform sometimes alone and sometimes with various adult choirs/orchestras around the area for a big holiday concert or special event.  I love their performances.  And what a great activity for people of all ages -- meeting up with like minded folks to make beautiful music together.

Please encourage them to keep singing after high school! My family wanted me to give it up when I went to college so that I could focus solely on "real" academics. Turns out that the 1-credit choir courses both filled an arts requirement and were essential to my sanity. I'm about to start my 27th year of choral singing, and it's amazing how much more I learn each year.

I will -- promise!  They've been singing since first grade, and hopefully will continue their whole lives.

Being greeted by our family dog in the evening. She barks sometimes but when she sees DW and I walk in we often get her "rooooooo.... rooooooo....." and lots of tail wagging. We call it yodeling.

Haha, we call it her "Wookie call" when ours makes that noise.

Has she got husky in her? My good buddy is a husky and she rooo-rooos also.

Definitely no husky in this dog. Wrong size, wrong breed, etc. ;)

I love the "wookie call" name for it!

Another cheap happy thing - simple anticipation. Anticipation of anything positive.

Today it comes from seeing family this week, a nice holiday meal, hanging out with our kids tomorrow and taking a bike ride together.

Under some circumstances: snow.

The weather has been depressing for weeks, with mostly rain. But I have hope that we might actually get so much snow this weekend that we can go cross country skiing, one of my favorite hobbies.

Under other circumstances, snow can be a PITA, like when you have to drive to work. That problem should be solved in other 2 weeks, because of FIRE.

Family dinner with an excess of good food.

Leftover Thanksgiving dinner for the next couple of days.

I wish I was in a choir.  My DD is and will be performing with the local concert band.  They are doing the Hallelujah chorus this year.  The best part is the friends that she is making in this group.

Cardio Strength training class at my local gym.  The instructur kept saying "Wheee!" during hard reps.  Made me smile & giggle so I forgot how hard I was working.  Now I'm home, showered, sitting by a warm fire with a cuppa tea and feeling amazing.

Selling jewelry made by women rescued from prostitution and slave trafficking in Asia, with all proceeds going back to supporting the women.  Cheap for me. Not so cheap for the lovely people who purchased the jewelry.

Yesterday my 13 y.o. son helped me work in the garden.  Afterwards we were just sitting there talking, and he picked a blade of grass and tied it on my wrist as a bracelet.  It made me so happy.

When all of the random fridge leftovers come together to make a meal that satisfies: a picky 12 y.o, a starving teen, a Keto friendly adult, and a lactose intolerant adult. It was like leftover magic.

Just watching the snow fall. Best walking opportunity. First snow of the season. As usual we are far enough south that it seldom amounts to anything.

I've resisted this thread for a long time and now feel sad that I did!  It's lovely!

Mine today is when I get an email from the library saying a book I put on hold is ready for me to checkout.  It's a great surprise and probably the happiest things I ever see in my inbox.  It's so exciting to then open it like a present, not knowing which of the many books I have on hold it will be until I can get a good look at the contents. 

Libraries, man.  They are the best.

I have a list of books I would like to borrow from the library. But if I order them, they do indeed usually arrive very fast. And I just don't have the time to read them yet. I hope that changes very soon when I FIRE. Maybe I finally will have time to read whatever I want at any time I want. The library is great.

The retro bubble lights on my Christmas Tree!

My grandma had some when I was really little and I just thought they were beautiful. My parents always thought they were tacky so would never use them on the family tree.

I bought myself some four years ago and I love them so much! I sit and look at my Christmas tree and something in me is so happy that I have something that I wanted so badly as a child. I FEEL like a little kid when I look at them.

I love this. I still remember the weird lights that looked like ice balls on my grandparents' tree (always a huge and real tree, with loads of tinsel). I would love to get a set for our tree.

Our (free) Christmas tree with homemade ornaments. Our tree is little - about one meter tall. A few years ago we spent several weeks crocheting amigurumi ornaments. Another year we sewed felt ornaments. Itís definitely not a designer tree and nothing matches on the tree, but it looks and feels so homey.

Also today, I spent a few hours making fancy designer candles.

Natural smokeless soy wax cost $1.50 for 500 g (enough for five to six small candles). I had friends collect small tea tins and jars for me. The designer scents cost $0.40 each.

I looked online at Anthropologie and some of the other big name stores to see what scents were popular this year, then bought those scents online - English Pear and Freesia, White Tea, & Japanese Yuzu. I also bought a couple Chanel (knock off?) scents.

We now have several beautiful, sumptuous-smelling fancy candles that cost less than $1 each to make.

I make candles from leftover stumps of old candle. Without scent and ornaments. But just normal functional candles.

I looked at several sites. Some taught you how to melt and pour the wax. Others talked about oil flashpoints (temperature at which the scent evaporates). I didnít buy any of the fancy tools that they recommended (kitchen scale, candy thermometer), but it still turned out okay.

Here are some sites to get you started:

https://pin.it/erehxyhphjf2n6
https://pin.it/d6aq6kar5pzby7

I canít help you with the cost of materials since I live in China and buy most of my materials online from the manufacturer/exporter.

This is kind of contingent on the cost of tea, but a good homemade cup of loose leaf tea. Especially pu-erh or oolong. They can be re-steeped several times for maximum enjoyment, so it's totally mustachian, right? :P

Also, the act of cooking homemade meals at home with my husband is so fun, usually accompanied by great conversation, laughing, background music, and wine or kombucha. The drinks are extra, I guess, but all in all it's so much of a better experience than going out and being waited on!

Unseasonable weather: cool summer day or warm winter day.

This weekend was warm. Spent time outside. It was nice and dry and 60s F.

Chores for us, helped a friend with their chores. Good weekend.

Does that seriously make you happy? I live in a country without poisonous or so big spiders and I would freak out if I would encounter a tarantula in the wild, while visiting another country.

We have wild tarantulas here in California and they are sort of like sleepy-sloth spiders--furry and slow-moving and really fascinating. I saw one once while on a camping trip and was thrilled.

Agree! I was driving down a back road in the desert east of San Diego a dozen years or so ago, and saw one on the road. It was big enough to see going 50 mph from a high truck! We stopped and I have a picture of me sitting next to it on the pavement. I hadn't seen one since my 4th grade class's pet tarantula, whom we all got to take home one weekend during the year and feed grasshoppers. They are impressive creatures.
