An early morning at Vårhallarna.

An early morning at Vårhallarna.
Written by Annika Olsson / 7 April, 2019


It was last week that I met my day at Vårhallarna. A lone swan swam a bit into the sea.

It was such a sleepless night that I finally just got tired of turning and turning in bed. Better to get up and do something you could enjoy, I reasoned.

A 2019 04 01 6 österlen.seA 2019 04 01 7 1 ö

It was still winter and the thermometer in the car showed three degrees below zero. I shivered to a little bit despite my thick cover jacket.A 2019 04 01 2 1 österlen.seA 2019 04 01 4 1 österlen.seA 2019 04 01 8 ö

A couple of frozen cars were in the parking lot. It was a bunch of guys who camped in the little pine grove. Two tents were erected and I could imagine that it was quite raw and chilly for them to wake up.

A 2019 04 01 12 ö

The beach which is the municipality's only dog ​​bath was completely deserted and empty. Not even my own dogs were eager to get up so early in the early morning and accompany them.

But I was grateful for the beautiful sunrise I had to experience. It was a clear blue sky that emerged increasingly, while the yellow orange rose up on the horizon.

Wonderful sunrises at Österlen. So grateful to once again experience a wonderful morning.

Quote of the day:

Three things to release: What has been, the stress and the weight.

Easy to the mind, I rushed through a sleeping Österlen back home to my Gyllebo. There I was greeted by three waving dog tails and a lovely scent of coffee.

Have a good time.

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!

Wonderful Stenshuvud

January 1, 2019
wonderful stone head ö


First I want to wish you all a really good continuation !!

Think so lucky we are who live here in Österlen. Here is so much wonderful nature to enjoy. Obviously, we have, of course, throughout our long-lived country!

2018 12 26 nr1 30 ö

That early morning when the weather almost reminded of an early spring day, then my dog ​​and I walked all the way up to Stenshuvud.

2018 12 26 nr1 27 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 28 ö

At the Krivareboden the sun was on, so it looked as if the little booth was almost in flames in the early morning.

2018 12 26 nr1 59 ö

In the sky, the white line gossiped that there were people who were either going away or home. I enjoyed standing with both my feet on the ground this morning.

2018 12 26 nr1 60 ö

Naturum lay there on the hill and looked to proudly guard its beautiful nature.

2018 12 26 nr1 61 ö

I decided to walk up to the top of Stenshuvud. My legs felt light and every step went like a dance.

2018 12 26 nr1 71 ö

Up there at the top it is so strikingly beautiful. Up there on a stone I sat for a long time, immersed in my own thoughts. Johnny lay on my feet and enjoyed that I scratched it from behind my ear. Life becomes so simple here.

2018 12 26 nr1 62 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 67 ö

Then it was time to go all the way back. Though you always come down.

Quote of the day:

We open the book, the pages are empty. We fill ourselves in with words. The book is called "Opportunities" and the first chapter is New Year's Day.

I wish you all a nice day and a really good start to the new year. Keep in mind that the power of thought is stronger than you can imagine, so think positively. Hope that your new book will be a fantastic story. And just because a chapter is a bit sad, doesn't mean the whole book is boxed.

Hug Annika

A really Happy New Year.

December 31nd, 2018
a really good news is ö


Today I just want to wish everyone a really happy new year. My wonderful family, my friends, colleagues, all you cute blog readers and the rest of the world.

Some of you are struggling with things you should not struggle with, and to you I want to send some extra love and thought and hope.

My tip when life gets stuck, it's to go out into nature, stretch your arms to the sky and smile the biggest smile you can. Feel the wind in your face and for a little while just be raving happy no matter what ... You can try it with you!

Happy New Year!

Intermediate at Österlen.

December 30nd, 2018
midday sale at osterlen ö


Fighting with other people in the middle-aged, it's not my melody at all. Though here in Österlen it is a completely different thing. Here you are instead received with a big hug, and by the kiophyster does not feel a thief. Instead, there is calm and harmony. Much like when you pick berries in the forest. The enjoyment is the main thing and if you find something this is pure bonus.

2018 12 27 4 österlen.se2018 12 27 3 ö

Stefan and I were driving a round. Mostly to enjoy, and perhaps to find something "good to have". The first stop was fantastic Hylkegården.

2018 12 27 5 ö

I looked at the Odd Molly clothes that were put down in price, but instead it was Stefan who bought himself a fancy shirt. The last juggling jersey in navy blue, he had certainly spilled some claws on his stomach, so you can imagine how it now looks ...

2018 12 27 6 ö

Then came cozy Micke in his own high person snuggling in the store.

2018 12 27 9 ö

Our next interim hour stop went on Karl-Fredrik at Eklaholm. Half the price of everything Karl-Fredik proclaimed with such a happy voice that only he has.

2018 12 27 24 ö

We should have a bulky zinc bucket when we quenched the stove, Stefan said.

2018 12 27 26 ö

I myself found one on the roof for expensive pot, though it is half the price so it is. And I'm pretty weak for beautiful pots that you know. But most of all, I wanted a rusty thing for the garden.

2018 12 27 25 ö

For a long time, we sneaked around and enjoyed and smacked everything there was to find bargains.

2018 12 27 29 österlen.se2018 12 27 30 ö

Quote of the day:

Being slim is quite ok. Not being slim is also quite ok. Being curvy is quite ok. Not being curvy is also quite ok. But coming up with derogatory comments about how someone's body is designed is never okay.

Have a nice day and say good things to each other because it is always quite ok.

I love scents.

December 29nd, 2018
I love fragrances ö

(post contains advertising links)

Hello Hello

Yes, I really love scents. Most of all I love good smells of course. But I can actually enjoy a bit of a heavy fertilizer on an early spring day as well, although it would probably not be so pleasant to have that smell as eu the toilette in bottle.

2018 12 27 35 ö

Nothing smells good as flowers. Hyacinths I love very much. Right now, a lovely amaryllis that I received from Karl-Fredrik at Eklaholm boasts a vase at my home. Three cerise-colored hyacinths that come from "Sussie's flower corner" spread their fragrance throughout the kitchen.

2018 12 27 39 ö

Now that the darkness is sinking over our Austrian landscape, I should be able to crawl up on the sofa and click home a new perfume for myself from the net. One I haven't had in a long time, but I love ...

2018 12 26 nr1 12 ö

Tonight's quote:

Sometimes change can hurt, but when you change, you understand that the process was necessary.

Tip: One of my favorite perfumes is Clinique Aromatics Elixir, which you will find HERE. It is not a strikingly beautiful package, but the scent appeals to me, and I often return to just that. A true summer perfume that I also often return to is Dolce & Gabbanas Light Blue HERE it makes me think of sweet summer memories. Do you have any favorite fragrance?

Wet dog can also be a favorite fragrance ... but neither do the smell be nice in bottle I think ...

My king of sand

December 29nd, 2018
my king of sand ö


That wonderful morning now in Christmas, when when I walked on the beach in Knäbäck. The lovely morning my fine Johnny dog ​​also came along.

2018 12 26 nr1 41 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 35 ö

It is very rare that my Johnny is allowed to run loose and completely uncoupled in public place. Not at all because he's a dangerous or nasty dog. No, it is almost the opposite - he is extremely affectionate and he also loves people of all his heart.

2018 12 26 nr1 56 ö

Johnny is a guard dog in the defense and thus trained to find and tell where there are people. This training has meant that Johnny believes that everyone is equally happy that he comes stormy as the figurants who are on his service dog training. Because I have full understanding that people can be afraid if a big black man is coming against them, I choose with care those times when he can run loose as he wants.

2018 12 26 nr1 47 ö

That beautiful morning at Knäbäck didn't see a man. Then we took the chance and both I and Johnny enjoyed for full mugs.

johnny 1 ö

Seeing Johnny take his little pussy "carpet dips" and then trying to dig holes in the sand that was always covered by the salt water from the sea was a lovely feeling. For a while we strolled alongside him and I and just owned the world. But when we approached Stenshuvud, it got leash again. Johnny seemed quite pleased with that as well.

2018 12 26 nr1 55 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 58 ö

Dog owners, for both small and large fur coats, must show respect I think.

Quote of the day:

Besides our own thoughts, there is nothing that we have full power over.

Have a nice day and hug from me.

The second day came as a spring day.

December 28nd, 2018
second day came as a weekday ö


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!

2018 12 26 nr1 17 ö

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.

2018 12 26 nr1 13 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 14 ö

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

2018 12 26 nr1 19 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 26 ö

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!

2018 12 26 nr1 22 österlen.se2018 12 26 nr1 25 ö

Johnny and I walked quietly with our noses facing Stenshuvud.

2018 12 26 nr1 23 ö

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

2018 12 26 nr1 72 ö

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

2018 12 26 nr1 18 ö

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.

An early Christmas morning at the Romans memorial site.

December 27nd, 2018
an early Christmas morning at the Roma memorial site ö


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.

2018 12 25 149 ö

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.

2018 12 25 143 österlen.se2018 12 25 141 ö

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.

2018 12 25 151 österlen.se2018 12 25 152 ö

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.

2018 12 25 145 österlen.se2018 12 25 150 ö

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.

2018 12 25 153 ö

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.

2018 12 23 011 ö

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.

peaceful time ö

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.

2018 12 25 6 ö

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.

2018 12 23 6 ö

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.

2018 12 25 5 ö

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

2018 12 25 1 ö

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

Have fun and hug from me.

A white Christmas at Österlen

a white Christmas on osterlen ö


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

2018 12 23 23 ö

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.

2018 12 23 24 ö

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.

2018 12 23 22 ö

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.

2018 12 23 13 ö

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 to look back ö


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.

2017 07 27 nr2 010 597adfdfe087c372e98a033b ö

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.

2017 07 27 nr2 017 597ae0ee9606ee17f48018ea ö

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.

2017 07 27 nr2 023 597ae190e087c3730c5c38ee ö

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.

2017 07 27 nr2 028 597ae59e9606ee17ed410d0b ö

2017 07 27 nr2 029 597ae5a0e087c37318c68ee6 ö

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.

2017 07 27 nr2 030 597ae5a32a6b22bb82718153 ö

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

2017 07 27 nr2 037 597ae67ee087c37318c68ef8 ö

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.
