For pastime we ordered ourselves some “toys” from Mercado Libre: an electric welding device for Norbert, a little sewing machine for me.
We had no specific projects in mind, but thought that those devices could be useful. In the past, I had sewn a few pieces of clothes for the kids and for myself. But that was a long time ago. Norbert had watched a few colleagues welding, but never learned how to do it himself.
Norbert’s first welding project: putting feet under some metal frame that we found in the garden. We thought of using it to elevate the chicken stable.
Next: Making a dung fork for me to dig my compost
Of course I had to try it right away!
My projects were a lot smaller:
Next I needed a meat tenderizer for my “Milanesa”. Norbert took a piece of firewood and worked it with a saw and grinder.
“Milanesa” is something like a breaded German “Schnitzel” but made with beef (also sometimes with chicken meat).
It is usually served with two fried eggs on top. Norbert really likes it.
