Simple Pleasures and Apple Turnovers

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was able to have a little alone time Sunday afternoon. Here are a few pictures of what I enjoyed...

Rose

Bleeding heart
I was worried my Bleeding Heart wasn't going to come back. It even has a tiny flower, which I didn't even noticed at first.

Flower pots

Hummingbird

Daisy
We are celebrating a birthday this week...Daisy turns one.

Daisy
And I'm happy to report she no longer fits in our water garden!

Daisy
She does love playing in the hose though. She's a good girl, a wonderful family pet and she even keeps our feet warm at night. :0)

Apple turnovers
And lastly, a plate of homemade Apple Turnovers. Thank you for the recipe, Gina!

Apple Turnovers
I hope you all have a great start to your week!

Where is the ice cream for those turnovers!!! Looks like Spring has arrived at your house Kelli!
Mama came last week. Me, her & Little Package went on a tour of old Savannah. It was so much fun. We went to a tea house in the afternoon but could not get waited on. I was so disappointed! Anyway I thought of you & Revee having tea together all the time....thought Mama & I could get just ONE up on ya...but I guess not! love ya!

Yum! The turnovers look delicious. I love your sweet pictures of Daisy;-) Pets are wonderful. I posted a funny story about our cat recently at Marigold Manor. Stop by and visit if you get a moment;-)

Happy Birthday to Daisy. My mom recently adopted a puppy, whom she named Daisy!

I am about to pour some coffee. After looking at your apple turnovers, my usual breakfast of a rice cake and peanut butter is not as appealing. Those turnovers look delicious.

I LOVE the picture of Daisy in the water garden! LOL I will so have to try the Apple Turnovers! My grandma always made fried apple pies and every time I eat them, they bring back such good memories of her!
Glad you had such a nice weekend, and I pray you'll have a delightful week as well!
Blessings,
Amy

Had to chuckle about Daisy keeping your feet warm at night. Be careful! Our Golden Retriever was raised on the bed as a puppy (by previous owners). He's not nearly so little now (he's huge) and still thinks he can take his HALF of our Cal King bed out of the MIDDLE!

So glad your Sunday afternoon was lovely.

Cherrie said...

Lora said...

Happy Birthday, Daisy!! Wish I could share on of your apple turnovers right now:)

TJ said...

Oh those turnovers look fabulous! I made blueberry muffins this weekend, and they are all gone!

I cannot wait for our weather to warm up and my garden begins to come to life like yours.

Yay for Daisy's first birthday!

Jessica said...

I especially enjoyed seeing your spring pictures since today I woke up to a blustery snow storm!

All the best to you.

Sharon Kay said...

Iwill be heading north this week and after being in Fl. for 6 weeks I hope like you did I can work in my yard. The appleturnovers look so good. I may have to go home work in the yard and bake to.

Gena said...

What a lovely weekend! I have such a soft spot for that puppy. Our Golden is almost 5 now and I remember her "baby" days. That little wet faced doggy picture is adorable!

glorv1 said...

Oh man those apple turnovers look so delish. Can you mail me some please, huh, pretty please.:) I especially love Daisy. She is divine and I do mean that. One year old and looking just so grand. Oh, do take good care of her, because you can see, she loves you much. I love family pets. Take care.

Hi Kelli! I really enjoyed the photographs and have to say those turnovers look perfect in every way. They should be on the cover of a magazine!

What a wonderful website! I live in Arizona and am a homemaker, love the Lord and homeschool my daughter, age 14. I have 4 sons all grown up now, two being in the military.

I have 40lbs of Pink Lady apples and have been baking like crazy. I am looking for a recipe for Apple Turnovers but so far everything on line is with the already made pastry. I want to do everything by scratch. Is your lovely recipe of Apple Turnovers by scratch and if so, could you pass that on to me.

Thanks so much!!
Trusting the Lord with all my heart,
Julie Ann
