Sometimes I try to get him to go on a little road trip to some nearby town we've never explored before, which is usually met with such resistance that we've never done it. "What will we do THERE?" he asks.
Sometimes I suggest we accomplish some needed project together, such as sorting through his clothes and bagging up those he wants to donate, providing clothing for the needy AND space in our closet. This is always met with resistance too. One of these days I'm simply going to do it without him, which will be easier for me but gives him no input.
But this past Sun HE uncharacteristically suggested we do a few things together. The weather was nice, so after having breakfast with Steven & Thad we took Marvin & Walter for a nice long walk around the pond in the park near our house. They really love it and its a pretty walk for us too.
Then we re-arranged the furniture in the family room, and swapped the TVs in the family room and TV room. (Neither of us are thrilled with the new arrangement so we'll probably move it back.)
Then we gave the dogs a bath, afterward I washed and dried the towels from said baths.

It was completely unplanned but it was a really good day!
