Halloween spirit, fresh batch of Balm By Buck, & more rain coming

We had our first candy haul of season last night. Prairie Township had a trick or treat trail and the kids were SUPER excited to go in their new costumes. 
It has been so warm this month and I decided to take Evan to the zoo to enjoy the great weather. He fed the giraffes! 
Then we went to check out the new sea lion exhibit. That is a GREAT new addition to the zoo and we love going inside when they can swim next to you as well as above and below you. So fun.
Just trying to soak in the mild temps while they were here.  We have been above normal every single day for the first 3 weeks of October. We finally had a below normal temp day on Friday. That was also thanks to our Friday rain. 
I spent Friday making a new big batch of my balm.  I restocked the Clean, Mint, and Unscented variety. I should be getting my last essential oils to resupply my Forest variety today or tomorrow. If you want to check out my online shop, just go to For anyone who doesn't know. I make this balm using local beeswax and other organic ingredients like coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, and shea butter. I have made it for about 6 years now and use it to style my hair daily. It also is great to lock in moisture for your skin, especially in the dry winter months ahead. And for runners, the oil and wax mixture works great to avoid chafing/blisters that come with the repetitive motion of distance running. Forest has a pine scent to it and Clean uses lavender essential oil. Those are the top 2 sellers.
Yesterday was damp early, but the clouds broke up some and we went to Lehner's Pumpkin Farm in Delaware County. Kids had a blast with all the activities. 
Lots of fun for the whole family. Love the food there as well! 

Good Sunday morning! We have light mist and drizzle this morning then steadier and heavier showers will move in for the late morning and afternoon today. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, but severe weather should stay at bay today. The band of steady rain will lift north for the evening and tonight. We may have a few light showers overnight, but a break in the rain for most of us for the majority of this evening and tonight. Temps stay mild today and tonight with highs in the mid 60s and overnight lows (Monday morning) in the upper 50s. Another wave or rain will swing in early Monday and we will see more scattered showers and storms on and off on Monday. Ohio may see a few strong to severe storms on Monday, mainly for the southern and eastern parts of Ohio. Damaging winds would be the main threat for any severe storms.
The entire system starts moving east Monday night and just a lingering shower or two possible early Tuesday, mainly east. Clouds will then clear some for partly cloudy skies Tuesday afternoon. We will see cooler temps following the rain with morning temps Tuesday in the mid 40s and mid 50s for highs on Tuesday. Even cooler temps Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with temps dipping into the upper 30s and outlying areas could see mid 30s and frost. Partly cloudy Wednesday and we warm into the lower 60s.
Clouds roll back in on Thursday and we see another period of rain for Thursday PM and this second system sticks around the region for on and off rain into the weekend. Highs will warm into the mid 60s ahead of the rain Thursday then we will be in the upper 50s with the scattered rain for Friday and Saturday. Some of the rain may linger into Sunday, Halloween, but it does look lighter and on the tail end of the entire system. Have a good one!
