Designer Drains

A shower drain is not an item that many people give a lot of their attention. It is the round silver piece that blocks hair and other debris from going down the drain into the pipes. Plumbers and homeowners worship this tiny piece of metal. It prevents many problems that can occur down the road. It usually only has to satisfy two generic needs: It has to be sturdy enough to do proper blocking, and it must be porous enough to still allow water to drain sufficiently. has elevated the status of this little piece of metal by giving it some appealing design features. They are square or round and made from reclaimed stainless steel. The designs are classic or geometric, or they are patterns from nature, architecture, art history or the oceans.

The scrolls design, which resembles a sprawling sun with curlicue rays, is a popular design. With a small center hole, the drain is slightly feminine and in some ways resembles a woman’s hair. Other scroll designs available have slightly more intricate designs.

The art history drains are a bit more complex. The kokopelli and spray of leaves designs seem to have required a lot of etching. The kokopelli design features two of the mythical humpbacked, fertility creatures playing their signature flutes and facing each other. One is upside down; the other is right side up.

Square drains feature some of the same designs. They are centered in thicker borders and wider to accommodate the different shape of drains. There is something designer to fit a range of tastes.

Sick Boys

It’s not the best time of the year to get sick… and all of my three boys, that includes hubby, are sick.:(

First it was the little one two weeks ago before the first big storm this season, so after that, he wasn’t able to enjoy the snow and make snowman in the school grounds. He was sniffling and had a little coughing but thankfully his cough did not last long and was not very severe. Earlier this week, hubby was down again, not with fever, but with high blood pressure. His BP went up and he had to go to the hospital to be checked. The tests done on him all came back negative and so all my worries were erased (for the meantime). Then mid-week, the school boy started coughing and by the time he got home from after-school, he was coughing badly.

Now the school boy just looks so tired and barks (cough) like every minute! My poor baby! I am just thankful that it’s already their winter break and classes won’t start till January 6 next year, the school boy has enough time to rest and so does hubby. Hubby though is just a little worried because his company will have a two-week shut down for the holidays, so that means no pay for him except for the holidays.

I just hope that my boys will be fine before Christmas and New Year so that we can have fun this Christmas and the holidays. Get well soon my boys!
