From dancing to Christmas in Dungen.

From dancing to Christmas in Dungen.
Written by Annika Olsson / 29 November, 2018

Hello.

This weekend we were at the sweetest little Christmas market you can only imagine.

We were in Dungen in Östra Vemmerlöv - the charming little party place where every Österlening in my age was probably dancing and swinging his furry legs. Maybe a little on the pickle basket too, in any case I have a slight memory that it may have been so.

But this lovely November afternoon was the Christmas mood so it sprinkled about it.

It was empty, it was mulled wine and it was Christmas tree sales.

Goa guys met and inside the stalls stood salesmen and offered their charming little crafts from the village.

Ohhh, what I would like a little Simrishamn house, or two.

Sometimes as I walked over all the fine things that were available to buy, my Stefan limped around and talked to all the people he knew. For this, it is when you go to a Christmas market here in our home town, most of the time is spent talking to friends and acquaintances. And that's actually what is the cozy one I think. That we all crawl out of our cabins and meet a bit in the autumn dark.

When I, with a new door wreath on my arm, happily walked toward the exit, I couldn't help remembering the youth's dances there in the Dungeon. Warm summer swells with sandals on gritty feet. The money was wasted on chocolate wheels and lottery tickets, and in the corner of the eye you watched some nice youngsters ... Lovely memories!

You who missed this little cute Christmas market, you must keep your eyes open next year.

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!

Autumn at Drakamöllan.

6th November 2019

Hello.

Sometimes it is good to do headless things. Like erasing photographs by mistake. My mistake, in fact, gave me two wonderful morning walks in Drakamöllan's fantastic nature reserve.

The scenery here is so wonderfully beautiful and the plains give you almost the same feeling as on Serengetis savannah.

Here, of course, there were neither lions nor hyenas, nor sheep shells anymore. For they were best on their way to the sheep heaven. Though it is, and should you eat meat, it should be meat from happy animals. I think the sheep that had this view have really been happy.

Here's just so damn nice. I noticed my favorite mushroom, porcelain shavings. Probably not very good to eat, but so beautiful to the eye.

The powers of the weather were on my side and offered a glorious beautiful morning.

The last autumn leaves glowed in the sunshine.

Drakamöllan's farm hotel looked like it had just woken up. I suspected that what was best used for breakfast in there. This place is so beautiful.

Quote of the day:

We say we are wasting time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.

For me, time in nature is never a waste. There is nothing better!

Have a good time and hug

Tram in the hometown.

5th November 2019

Hello.

I never tire!

I never tire of wandering around here. In my beloved Gylleboskog.

Although I walk (or run) here every single day, it feels like new every time. No day is really the other corpse. After all, nature is constantly changing.

What may possibly feel a bit worn out now, is blogging about it. In my eyes, there are new things to discover just all the time.

Although my eyes see little funny things just all the time, it is not as certain that it is of interest to everyone else ... that avenue seeds resemble suspended stockings on a drying line ...

We'll see .. maybe my blog posts will be a little less what time is suffering ...

But out in the wild, I never stop walking. Nothing is like a tram in the hometown. All that familiarity that allows the eyes to attach to the small details instead.

Quote of the day:

In order to understand another person's experiences, we need to have a space within ourselves where we have the opportunity to change our own perception.

Have a good time. And if you have the opportunity, go out on a roving train in your home town. Your forest is as wonderful as my forest.

No other chance.

4th November 2019

Hello.

It was a week ago that my dog ​​and Johnny enjoyed a wonderful autumn morning in the Drakamöllan nature reserve.

It was a wonderful light and I was extra happy that I chose to bring my big camera with me this morning. It is heavy, but sometimes it is worth the effort.

At the beginning of the hiking trail, a whole flock of sheep stood greedily drinking water from the little pond. The pictures I captured of them became magical, I saw it immediately. It felt like it was in my finger when I put it on the shutter and slowly pushed from picture to picture. The light and the colors were so beautiful and all the sheep reflected in the still water. Sometimes you only know that you have taken canon pictures before you actually see them and get it confirmed. This was such a time ...

As you can see, there is no glimpse of the smallest little skull on my pictures.

No, I accidentally deleted all the pictures that were in my camera when I got home. You can safely say that I got a stroke of brain drop and short circuit at the same time, when all of a sudden I just realized that I would format a little memory card here at home.

Attans I thought to myself…. although I can probably go there the next morning and photograph those sheep at the water hole again. That would not be so impossible I reasoned. The weather would hold, so the light should be the same.

Impossible was exactly what it was.

The next morning I parked the snoop next to a large animal transport where all the sheep were being loaded for further transport to ... the sheep sky. No, there were no more chances, neither for me or those sheep.

Sometimes you simply have no other chance!

At least Johnny and I had another wonderful autumn walk in the scenic area, and that was not a shame.

Quote of the day:

When we die, we should all rest in peace. BUT… why don't we live in peace while we live?

Lesson learned: Do not format the memory cards on the camera until the images are saved on the computer… "My eel cap"

My fall rice.

3th November 2019

Hello.

No, I don't need to play lottery or bet on horses… I already have the highest winnings here by my side. My own fur-covered autumn gown.

I really wouldn't feel good without having animals near me.

Of course, I am very happy and attached to both our cats, Felix and Judith… Though nothing goes against the dogs. They are more like little friends you can talk to. Loyal and loyal. While the cats are like inherent guests who mostly require service. Everything happens only on their terms.

Faithful and loyal friends you have to look for. My three dogs are patiently waiting for me at the front door when I'm not home. The cat Felix, on the other hand, will soon become the smallest. If food is not served directly when he enters through the door, he openly shows his displeasure. He strolls to the neighbor instead and does not justify me with a glance.

Having three friends who are always on the notes is wonderful. Whatever the weather, they are just as happy to spend time in the woods.

I love my furry tress. Three goodies who want to walk with me in all autumn weather. Like small royalty, they are currently piling on a red carpet of book leaves here in Gyllebo.

Johnny, Lykke and Molly ♥

Quote of the day:

To hurt someone is as simple as throwing a rock at sea. But you never know how deep that stone will sink.

Maybe that's why it's so enjoyable to spend time with animals. Animals are never at risk of being injured.

List Room ridge.

2th November 2019

Hello.

All around Österlen there are so many nice hiking spots to visit. The list room sauce is such a nice little place.

Here through the small forest walks Gårdlösa trail.

The homeless trail is so accurate and excellent so it should have been awarded for that particular detail. Still, I got lost when I was here last…

Probably I went deep into my own thoughts, when suddenly I stood in the middle of a snowy wetland.

But with a Johnny dog ​​you are never lost, at least not for real.

I thought back to the first time I walked here. My daughters were little parvels and the third girl was in my stomach. Memories and how the brain works are fantastic. Think, I can still remember exactly what sweaters my cousin wore that day. Still, I can't possibly remember what we had for dinner here at home yesterday ...

When the deciduous forest turns into spruce forest, you arrive at a small dilapidated desert village.

It is exciting with dilapidated houses in the forest. Thoughts and imagination shine like a bit away.

It's All Saints Day and my own thoughts are a little extra for my own mother of course. I think of everything I wished I could tell her. Things that I know she more than happy to share with me.

Quote of the day:

Slow Mother Nature screws down the evening evening's twilight to darkness.

… But soon we humans "bananas" and light up millions of Christmas lights instead.

Have a lovely day and hug.

Mid October 2019

1th November 2019

Hello.

The most beautiful month of autumn has now passed. Wonderful October, which has given us a final salute. As a colorful end to the winter rest. Nature has always shown itself from its best side, or maybe it is I who chose to see it from its best side ... The Johnny dog ​​has kept up with watches and sheds, as always, and he still seems to be perfectly ok. I am so grateful for that, as long as he feels good and does not feel too bad in his leg.

In addition to wandering around in our beautiful Österlennatur, I have been running a little neighbor. More than 80 miles I have gained during the month. The plan is to increase distances in the future ... we will see how it goes with this ...

So he has finally arrived !! Guldgossen - my first grandchild. He arrived just on the appointed day. 3175 is heavy and 49 cm. tall I really like guys who fit the times. Welcome to the world little you.

Being a mother means generously sharing her body in 9 months to someone who 5 years later can't imagine sharing a single tough rat from her bag of candy.

Now I welcome November.

The sea went down.

31 October 2019

Hello.

The idea was that I would just give up at the top of the mountain… although you are at Stenshuvud, it is as if the sea always attracts and pulls.

At home in the office, the computer was chewing with stuff like old computers sometimes get ... updates. I had grown tired of the senselessness of just sitting and staring and waiting for an hourglass that unilaterally spun on the screen. I simply left work for a little while.

A quick walk up to the top of the mountain was my plan. But as always, something happens to me when I come out into nature. The mind settles down, the brain clears and the problem solving in the office is no longer the least important. The view from the top of the mountain had taken my breath away. So beautiful.

Beautiful views and small lovely details.

One of my favorite mushrooms grew a little here and there on old decaying tree trunks. It's so beautiful I think. Porcelain mushrooms.

When I came down from the mountain again my legs decided that they could not possibly go to the car already. So I swung off through the small gate. I followed the path across the heath and steered down towards the healthy sea.

On a small yellow flower crept the last insect of the year and in one of the old apple trees the apples hung over-ripe.

Down by the sea it smelled so nice and the colors were so beautiful.

The bush behind Krivareboden was so reddish so I almost had to pee with my eyes to be able to look at it.

Then it was time to turn our backs to the sea and stride up to the car again.

Thanks to my old tired computer, I had the opportunity for a wonderful nature experience. Everything is so often about choosing to look at things ... as a problem or an opportunity. Nothing is, as you know, white or black… or… green or yellow…

Once at home in the office, the computer was ready and ready for some accounting again, and my own "software" also felt strangely updated and tidy.

Autumn is so quiet.

30 October 2019

Good morning.

Some days in the fall are so quiet, so quiet.

Mornings when the wind has stopped and the birds are holding their beak, well then you can almost hear a pin drop.

When all the geese have left the lake in their eternal cackling, then the sound waves stop and everything just gets quiet.

I love when it gets so quiet. I love it just as much as I love spring concerts of sweet bird song.

And just when it is so very quiet you can surprise everyone and wake up nature by rolling into a bush ...

Quote of the day:

Silence is more than just missing words.

Have a lovely day and hug from me.

A view I never get enough of.

29 October 2019

Hello.

A fantastic "gold plaque" on Österlen. One of the very best.

Of course, I mean Stenshuvud.

It was a nice afternoon that I sat with my nose a little too deep in my office papers. Forest air and nature drew in my soul and in my tired brain. I decided to take a little break at Stenshuvud.

When I stopped the car and walked towards Naturum, the park's cute guide came out the door with cupped hands. He had saved one of the summer's last nettle butterflies from a safe "indoor death". He smiled at me and wished for a nice hike.

A human smile ... think as easily as you can feel a little easier on the mind ... Yes, that's what I was thinking when I was striding up the slope to the top of the mountain.

In front of my face, golden-red beech leaves still lingered on the ground, much like winter's first snowfall. I noticed how the foliage had gone and only the strongest leaves remained. I thought I wanted to be like those last leaves. One who stubbornly stays there as long as it goes.

When I got to the mountain's first viewpoint, I stopped for a while and enjoyed the beautiful view. The southern head, which is the first "head" you come to.

The blue sky and the turquoise sea stood in a nice contrast to the trees' bright yellow autumn leaves.

Soon I walked on the rocky path to take me to my absolute favorite spot. The Northern Head.

The view here from the northern viewpoint of a fine autumn day is striking.

The feeling of sitting here alone, 97 meters above sea level, and looking out over a beloved Österlen is magical. Soon, soon all the beautiful autumn leaves are gone and the view becomes a different one. The view feels a bit flatter and considerably colorless.

Who takes care of the fall when winter comes.

Have a really good day and hug from me.

Foggy autumn days.

28 October 2019

Hello.

There is something restful about these gray foggy days in October.

Days that never really seem to be able to brighten completely.

I like this with fog ... yes if I should not drive a car I want to say ... But when it gets so thick and foggy it feels like everyone else also get as bad eyesight as I have myself. Everything becomes equal. Equally and fairly.

Of course, if fog is so good for the eyes, I do not know, but it is obvious that the skin gets a lot of moisture anyway. The hair curls in a burr and along the neck runs a small drop of water that tickles. Everyone knows that moisture is good, both internally and externally.

There is indeed something certain with foggy, dark autumn days. Because it's not the same feeling at all to come home from a walk on a hot summer morning. I notice the difference and enjoy the time that is right now.

Quote of the day:

Smile - you don't have all the problems in the world.
