Strange random/intermittent leak in kitchen AND bathroom.

Hi thanks for helping me.
I returned home from work to find a puddle of water in my kitchen that apparently started from the sprayer (best guess) and looked to have put about a quart of water on my counter top and down to the floor.
Got that cleaned up and walked into the master bath to find the same problem except the leak appeared to have originated from somewhere in the cold water supply line.
The leak in the bathroom also happened 5 days ago. I shut off the cold water and was going to fix it a few days later. When I went to investigate the leak, the pipes were dry and no leaks. That was three days ago.
We put new fixtures throughout the house ourselves 4 years ago and haven't had any leaks.
I replaced the pressure reduction valve myself last year and no leaks there either.
The house was built in 1985.
Any help to solve this mystery would be greatly appreciated. I am stumped.

Did you perhaps use a significant amount of hot water prior to the leaks and not use any water at all between the hot water usage and the discovery of the leaks?
