Life is a grind!

An old mill in Franklinville North Carolina

Flour milling was one of the main activities in small towns throughout the 1800s

“Drew up the load of wheat this morning and cleaned up and drew two more today.  Stormed all the forenoon but this afternoon was clear and pleasant.  Not very cold.”

I have uploaded two pictures of old flour mills.  Although they are from North Carolina, they represent the type of mill our girl is talking about in her diary.
