One morning in the national park.

One morning in the national park.
Written by Annika Olsson / 22 July, 2019


It was a quiet and quiet morning. Me, Stefan and the dogs were up early and received a new day in the national park.

The path that goes from Hällevik towards Naturum is in its place a little rocky and "jerky" to wander on.

The nature here is so much like a magic forest I think. A landscape taken from a John Bauer painting.

If you have a rigid foot, which Stefan has, then it is an excellent training to shoot on the rocks here ... at least I think ...

For my lovely Johnny dog, it was nice with environmental change. Even though he carefully hides his diagnosis, I know how he lives up a little and gets some extra energy from new places.

The dogs enjoyed nature in their own way and we on our fine morning.

On the beautiful meadow that was formerly called the "scallop shark", the St. John's wort blossomed in full. Drinking tea made from St. John's wort is said to be soothing. But I think that only the look of this lovely meadow has a relaxing effect on all of us. So, so beautiful.

We chose a rather short round, and finally came out at Hällevik again.

The beautiful cowshed in Hällevik!

Quote of the day:

The best weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.

Have a nice day and hug from me.

Gylleboannika Annika Olsson

Hi. Welcome to my blog.
My name is Annika Olsson. I love animals and nature. I live with my husband, our dogs and cats in a wonderful place - Gyllebo in Österlen. I try to enjoy life in all places and gather at those little moments. I love to photograph and tell about big and small in my life, my thoughts from day to day. A lot of nature pictures and photos from my everyday life. One and another wise quotation is often included in my posts. Welcome to me!

The second day came as a spring day.

December 28, 2018


If I was a little bit sour on Christmas day's greedy weather, all of it was forgotten and forgotten on the second day. So, what a fantastic day!

Me and the dog Johnny started our day by the sea. The sun was coming up and the wind felt almost lukewarm against my cheek.

It was almost completely silent in addition to the harmonious sound of the ocean's still waves. That sound that touches the soul.

Even Johnny looked to be taken by the moment and on the border of religious ... if there is a dog god now. Of course it does!

Johnny and I walked quietly with our noses facing Stenshuvud.

It was Christmas Eve, but it almost felt like an early spring day.

Johnny and I enjoyed the morning and wandered for a good while this day, though the pictures I save to another post.

Quote of the day:

The mind says, continue. Heart says, stop.

Do it sometimes dear ones. Stop, breathe and take everything around. Everything wonderful just there.

Hug from me.

An early Christmas morning at the Romans memorial site.

December 27, 2018


Taking a sleeping morning and lying under cover and the snout is nothing for me. Not even if it's Christmas day tomorrow. No, instead, my daughter and I ended up a little unplanned at the Romans memorial monument that is located at the marketplace in Kivik.

Seeking to meet yet another snowy and sunny day, we hopefully fired up from our beds. With whose thermos freshly cooked milk chocolate carried our journey to Kivik's market field.

But it was neither a winter-white landscape nor any beautiful sunrise. It was simply gray, wet and overcast. But still so adorable beautiful as a gray morning probably can only be on Österlen.

Instead of enjoying some sunrise, we walked away and visited the monument erected in memory of the Romans. And where does such a monument really fit better than on the market field where the Roma always have been a natural part of the annual market. Something that in my own childhood really belonged to the market.

After a morning walk across the market field, our chocolate tasted divine. And as soon as time goes by now, it is soon the market again and then I am back in this field, was so sure.

Although it is rumored that this year's market would have been the last one, I do not really want to believe it until I see it ... The one who lives must see and rumors should not be attached to.

Quote of the day:

I woke up. I have clothes to put on me. I have running water. I have food to eat. Life is good. I'm thankful.

Have a nice day.

Hug Annika

Peaceful time.

December 26, 2018

Hello Hello

I hope you are doing well here on Christmas Day. I wish everything really got exactly as you wanted it on Christmas. I have had a fantastic Christmas with loved ones around me. That was exactly what I needed most.

At home with me, most of the plots and Christmas ornaments have been left in their coffin. Even the traditional nativity scene with the little Jesus child has been left in the hiding places. Not only a Christmas candy is made and even the liqueur cakes are not made after Mom's recipe.

My strengths already thawed this summer and after that I have really got to choose what to take my energy. But my new Christmas decorations have created a Christmas atmosphere so it splashes on it instead.

This year, flowers and candles have been responsible for the magic of Christmas, and really not much more than that.

And as a little Christmas present from Mother Nature, we also got a white winter at the bottom right in the right corner of Österlen. Even though we celebrate a white Christmas indoors with us, I love when nature also invites a little.

Tonight's quote:

All I want is

  1. to take photo
  2. to drink coffee
  3. to travel around the world
  4. to meet new people
  5. to be happy

Tip: I want warm clothes underneath. Comfortable, lovely underwear as KARI TRAA I love. Right now they are at gun prices and I intend to click home a new one. SWEATER and TROUSERS.

Have fun and hug from me.

A white Christmas at Österlen

December 26, 2018


Then we finally got a white Christmas in Gyllebo. I just love it!

With some pictures from an early Christmas Eve, I just want to check in here on the blog and wish you all a wonderful continuation of Christmas.

I will devote my day to a little recovery in my own company. Maybe enjoy a lovely walk in the woods, me and the dogs.

Inside our house, this year's beautiful Christmas tree boasts. Of course an Österlengran from Jeppssons in Stiby. As beautiful as always.

Life is all good cozy.

Quote of the day:

Now I have set my wave in the closet and there it can stay until it has said sorry.

Maybe it's more than me who feels a little tense about the stomach like this at Christmas time. Although that usually balances up again when everyday life comes, I think. As genuine skånetös I enjoy all the traditional Christmas food that is offered these days. Yes, almost everything I like - except grilled "piglets", or pork pies that some call this delicacy.

Have a good time and hug Annika

A time for retrospects.

December 25, 2018


I hope you have a nice Christmas day tomorrow. Perhaps you are left in your beds and think about doing so long or or you are sitting at a breakfast table and enjoying. Some of you may be heading to an early Christmas cave.

My camera and I have a few days off, so I offer some archive images.

Today I was going to take you on a small turn along the Österlenleden trail.

It was a day a couple of years ago that my daughter and I enjoyed a late summer day with some hiking here at home. Our journey went from Vitemölla to Brösarp.

We both love our Austrian nature. Beautiful beach flowers grew in the sand and in their place there was that special "black sand" which is a little rare for the beaches here.

We took a break at the wonderful chair by the lone tree a bit from Klammersbäcksmynning. The chair now nowadays has been joined and become two. We passed the old Ålaboden Stenören.

But the time goes fast when you walk and we were there at Haväng's bathing place and Verkeån's mouth.

Our legs were stiff so we continued smoothly with Brösarp in sight. Through the wonderfully beautiful Skepparp the trail that we followed went.

Our hike continued all the way to wonderful Hallamölla. But you might see more about another time.

Quote of the day:

To truly experience a landscape you have to walk through it. Even a bike goes too fast.
Now enjoy a nice Christmas day. Hug from me.

A nice Christmas Eve I wish you.

December 24, 2018


I just want to look in a bit quick and wish you all a really nice Christmas Eve. As usual, I am up with the tip and will give me out on Christmas Eve's mandatory spring tour around the lake.

It has become a bit of a tradition for me to start this very day before everyone else. At least before those who live under the same roof as myself.

I promise, a sandwich with Christmas ham can never taste better than after a tour of our Austrian nature no matter what the weather we are invited to.

Hope you all start your Christmas Eve in the way that you feel good about. Listening to their own voice is most important. For me, a run in a stressful time means that the thoughts get a relaxing moment and of course that the pork is shaken in a much-needed way.

Quote of the day:

Love without kisses is like eggs & bacon without eggs ... and without bacon.

Have a really nice Christmas Eve and a lot of fun, both two-and four-legged.

Hug Annika with family.

That day when I went to the cute sugar bags on Olof Viktor, the weather was gray, dark and sad. This is quite typical of our weather here at Österlen at this time of year. But at the same time I could see something extremely beautiful in the melancholy grayscale.

On my way to the cute sugar cans on Olof Viktor, I passed the big stone which for us all is known as "Klövasten".

About that stone there is a whole line of scrubs and sagas. Among other things, it is said that when a tailor went through the stone piling, the pieces joined together so that he became flat as a pancake. Therefore, his children were called for the plates.

I myself will always think of cream buns when I pass here. In my memory, there was previously a big sign of just cream bun sales right next door.

Although our Skåne weather is quite gray and sad, I think that it creates a certain mood as well. The black, bare trees against the gray-blue sky are so beautiful.

Quote of the day:

Advice from a tree:

  1. Allow yourself to be big and proud.
  2. Remember your roots
  3. drink a lot of water
  4. Carry on all the weather
  5. Enjoy the view

Have a really nice Little Christmas Eve and allow you to enjoy…. and drink plenty of water!

Österlens sweetest sugar maker.

December 22, 2018


Österlen's sweetest sugar can be found on the well-known Olof Viktors in Glemminge. Now these two girls are not just cute, no, they are some of the most professional I can imagine in dealing with both "batter and dough, pralines and pastries".

This gray-haired day, I had a special little case for one of the girls. A Christmas gift would be delivered. Already in the parking lot I was struck by a fantastic scent. There was the scent of freshly baked wort bread that seeped out the door of the bakery.

I was received with a baby jam and then got a quick lesson on how the wood oven worked. A hearty glow bed would have to burn out in the afternoon, then the oven would be ready for new ones next morning.

That the products from Olof Viktors are incredibly popular, every Österlening knows it. I took some quick pictures so as not to interfere with the sudden work that took place before Christmas.

Of course, I had to look at the fantastic gingerbread house that Malin Haak designed on freehand. So fine, right?

I wished I had some time to sink into the wonderfully cozy environment with a cup of strong coffee. But I had other errands, so I thanked me and rushed on in the gray-yellow Österlendagen.

Thanks for your time best girls. Elna and Malin !!!

Of course, I couldn't resist the temptation to buy with me something good from the store. And do you want to buy extra good bread for the Christmas table, or the best cookies for the mulled wine - go here!

A little extra crunchy it was when Stefan and I met at home in the office with whose box "goa grajjor" to the coffee. Both from Olof Viktors… Although you can't get too much of the good!

Quote of the day:

Try to make someone happy every day, if it is just yourself.

Delighting yourself is probably so important. Hope you get a joyful day.

Wishing weather.

December 21, 2018


If I could wish for the weather before Christmas here at Österlen, then I wish me exactly the same weather that we received in Easter. A real April weather that would have been perfect for Christmas.

Surely you all remember the amazing snow that fell and gave us the beautiful winter landscape the first few days in April. To the delight of some and to the indignation of others. I join the crowd of people who love our Austrian winters. Snow weather that can never be predicted.

Which Österlening does not remember New Year's Eve 1979? Then the snow was not so quiet and nice I can promise.

Or maybe you remember how it looked on Österlen on Christmas Eve 2010? So this cozy we had it!

Although it is probably good luck that neither of us can decide on the weather. We like the situation and enjoy what Mother Nature offers us.

Quote of the day:

Life is like a rainbow. You must have both rain and sun to see all the colors.

And we must have all seasons and all weather to fully enjoy I think.

Have a good time and hug.

Little Christmas feeling.

December 20, 2018


This week, the weather has invited some Christmas feeling here at home in Gyllebo. Some mornings it has been really slippery and some problems have been in the traffic.

I have chosen to drive around with studs on the tires.

-aunää, you should well have, said Stefan doubtfully when I ordered my dubbed tires.

-It is alive and because it´s her life giving in the whole car, he continued his sermon, with such a sensible mine.

There were dubbed tires on my car and I have never regretted myself once. Now I'm not worried about some small snowflakes.

Quote of the day:

Say what you want about my husband - but luck in love he has.

Now it is important to take it carefully on the roads, because even if it does not look so lame it can be very treacherous. Be afraid of you in the Christmas traffic.

Hug Annika
