Wednesday I attended the library book club meeting where we discussed Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. (See my review of the book here.) A cruise to Antarctica is a huge part of the story line in this book, and one of the librarians shared some slides and information about Antarctica as part of the meeting. I learned that the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is at the geographic south pole, that there have been three structures constructed at that site, and the ceremonial South Pole is there. I did not think to snap a photo during the meeting, so I found a photo of the ceremonial South Pole on Wikipedia to include on my LSNED page.
Thursday I worked on preparations for the Bible study I'll begin leading these week and learned that the My Heart - Christ's Home pamphlet (& Bible study & children's book) was based on a sermon Robert Boyd Munger first shared at First Presbyterian Church - Berkeley in 1947. I'm sure I've read that information before but it struck a chord with me this time as I'll be leading the study at a First Presbyterian Church (although it's 1700+ miles from Berkeley!).
I spent the day Friday moving the bookshelves (& all the books) in our front room from one wall to another as I'm re-arranging and re-decorating here at home. The bookshelves had sunk into the carpeting and were a little difficult to move, which made me contemplate how when something (or someone) has been in the same spot for a long time, it may take some extra effort to move it and get it unstuck from that spot (or situation).
