Grinding Wheat

Here is my wheat grinder. I have learned to love it. I grind my own wheat and I usually make 4 to 6 loaves of bread a week. It has become something that I really enjoy, and even look forward to doing it.

Although not... so long ago I use to detest the sound of the wheat grinder.

I'm sure my mom use to grind wheat on days other than Saturday, but that is the only time I remember hearing it.

And I'm sure she would start grinding like at 10:00 in the morning when I should have been awake, but back then, when I was a teenager, 10:00 in the morning was like the break of dawn.

I really didn't like the sound of the wheat grinder, but I knew that if I was going to be domestic I would have to learn to love that grinding sound....

When I got the wheat grinder I was kinda scared of it. I was afraid that I would again detest the awful sound of that machine.

But I don't. I actually love it. I love seeing the little wheat buds be turned into a fine flour that I can use to make bread, cookies and cakes for my family {yes I use wheat flour for those things}

I love feeling that I am domestic enough to be able to use a wheat grinder. I love knowing that I can trick my family by using bean flour for pancakes.

And now I look forward to pulling out the wheat grinder at an ungodly hour like 10:00am maybe I'll go bold and pull it out at 9:00.
