Little things in 2017

Well, it looks like I may only get a year out of one of these pages, since the one I set up early in 2016 is now starting to go funny as well. That's fine, here's one for 2017. Here's the link for my original it's the little things page, and the one for the second iteration, too (for some reason that one kept switching to an extra small font so here's hoping this one ends up a bit easier to read).

Being asked to join special smaller choir group for between-semester rehearsals and performances

Doing pretty well with smoothies and soups on the BSD
Someone who'd know enough to notice changes commenting on weightloss
Singing, singing, and more singing
Lots of good meals in good company with interesting discussions and much laughter (as well as lots of smiling) in Halle
