I did a reasonable job of stepping out of my routine, but I had so many things I'd planned to do that never happened (axe throwing, arrow tag, a class in something interesting, etc.).
The main culprit was the basement - that took a lot of time and, in fact, there's still stuff that has to go away. Still, I did some cool stuff.
In January, I went down to the Ottawa women's march.
In February, it was Crashed Ice.
By May, parts of Ottawa were flooding, so the dinosaurs and I went to take a look.
I went down to see the Canada 150 exhibit in the market (and cannot for the life of me remember what it was called).
I went to Grasslands National Park and saw the prairie dogs.
I went to a family reunion, held in 2017 since that is the 100th anniversary of the year my great-grandparents built their barn (and the year my grandfather was born).
I went down for La Machine, which was awesome.
