The top picture is of the Gristmill, the second is the water wheel that they use for power to run the big wheel grinders to mill the whole corn and wheat, the bottom picture could of been better but you can see where the corn was ground into cornmeal. We actually bought some cornmeal that was made at the gristmill.
Hope you all have a good week.

I came down with the hubby to DC,(90degree weather) we are thinking of going to Mount Vernon and maybe to see the Washington gristmill and distillery, also. I, of course, forgot to bring my camera thinking that I would be stuck in a motel room for the week and not knowing we would have time to play tourist. I will have to use the phone camera.
Lots of news, we are going to Illinois to see the family, the step-father hasn't been doing good and it is time to see him before things get worse. We bought a different truck, it is a 98 dodge diesel with no rust and in great shape, at least compared to the truck we had, we really didn't need that big of a truck but the price was right and we got a good price for our dodge that was a complete rust bucket and on its last legs. I will have pictures later this week. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Now that school is done for the semester I will be getting a lot more horse time in. I did get all A's for the semester and I now have a 3.90 GPA average. I do have just one class this summer, but it is online, which makes it a lot easier. Then, just one more semester to go. Hope to get lots of weaving in and put up a website just for the weaving part. I will let you know. I will be attempting to do the site myself, we shall see how well that goes!
Hope you all are having a good week so far, I will be blogging a lot more now. So, have a wonderful day!

Kegan put our new desktop computer together. He actually put all the components that go inside the computer together and built if for us. All I had to do is buy the parts. I am posting on the new computer as I am writing. I was so used to using my laptop that I forget to come over and use the big computer. All I have to do now is get a bigger desk to work on.
Hope you all are having a good week. One more day and it will be Friday for those of you who have a regular Monday through Friday day!

This is the last week of school and I have done two tests out of four. Tomorrow is a final and then Friday will be my final test and hopefully by next week I will know for sure how well I did. I anxiously look every day to see how well I did on the test but so far no grades have been posted.
My husband tells me to quit worrying and that I am going to do fine and it is what it is. Easier for him to say and harder for me not to worry.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
