Well, the sorting and stacking worked out. No miniatures parted with, but over 60kg of junk to the landfill and the room in a state where the cleaners are able to keep it reasonably dust-free.
I have not since returned to gaming, although I am looking at painting a couple of 28mm figures over the next few weeks as a form of relaxation. If I do, I will post the results here.
Most of my free time has shifted to work at the church - Saint Vincent de Paul, choir, Alpha - and spending time with friends. My reading is almost all a slightly more literary fiction (lots of Tracy Chevalier; but all detailed on my goodreads page). I also spent much of last fall baking bread, and will probably return to baking when the weather cools down here again. I've also found a great hummus recipe!
I have continued to pursue my studies of Renaissance history and over the next week or so will try using yet another blog page to organize my notes and references. Not a perfect tool for the purpose, but readily available wherever I am. The 6sided blog pages seem to has disappeared, but I had little enough there. The other hobby pages I will leave linked for reference, and because who knows when I might return to them?
