Cactus, Loved Ones, and Candy

I think the Night Bloomer likes it here in Virginia ~ it is going gangbusters.  Only 4 days since the last photo and it has grown considerably.  I'm not sure what it is going to do.
Casey had some business in town and was here for two nights this week.  I loved having him here.  We went to dinner last night at a place in Downtown Roanoke - Blue 5 - I loved it.  We had a great dinner and laughed a lot.  Spending time with him is good for my soul.  He was very tired, but found time to play with Jake before going to bed.  I hated to see him leave for home very early this morning.
I wasn't sure how I felt about the beard.  He said it is going away next week, so I didn't need to get used to it.

This was the look I got when I told Jake to leave the room and let Casey go to bed.  Priceless.
Mom received this gigantic box of candy from granddaughter Maria today.  She was so happy with this box of chocolates.  
We had no idea that any candy company made boxes this large.  Nice assortment and hard to resist!!!  She certainly has enough to keep that chocolate craving happy for quite a while.
