Around Oak Meadows

It is mushroom season and these are all over the place:

Did you know that there is a difference between an annual physical and a Wellness Check? Evidently Medicare pays for an annual Wellness Check which is different from the annual physical which the insurance pays for. I have had many annual physicals but never a Wellness Check.  It looks like I will have to schedule a separate visit for my physical. This seems rather redundant.  Have any of you had a Wellness Check?

I am making reservations for the Texas Butterfly Festival in Mission, TX October 31, Nov.1, & 2.  We had such a good time last year and I am really looking forward to it this year.  Did you know that we have a National Butterfly Center? Yes, we do and it is located in Mission, TX which is right on the Rio Grande.  One activity that we didn't do last year was the night class on moths.  Joe is taking a class on Macro photography.  I'm just doing the Butterfly Basics which I did last year and had so much fun just going around with an expert identifying butterflies around the Center. 

The more I read about the Republican candidates, the more I like Bernie Sanders.  I want a Bern❤️ bumper sticker.  One thing that I particularly support is his stand on getting Citizens United overturned. 

I'm still quilting and reading and cooking. Still napping with cats in the afternoon.  Still feeding the hummingbirds as they are migrating through and all the other birds year round. Still loving on Joe and so happy to be retired. 

And that's all the news from OakMeadows where the cats shed all over everything and the Roomba goes everyday.

That is such a pretty photo. No, I have not had a wellness check. The butterfly festival sounds wonderful! I am very happy when I come across butterfly gardens. I have to travel to get to them, but am content to visit local gardens which have several. I don't see as many varieties which is why I love to go to the other kind. Enjoyed your post, thanks for visiting mine and have a great week.
