Jack’s Walk

Queen Anne’s Lace, ©voyager, all rights reserved

Well, call me sleeping beauty because that’s about all I’ve done in the past 24 hours. Yesterday after my injections I lay down. That was around 7 pm and I more or less slept until 2 o’clock this afternoon. That’s 19 hours of sleep, one right after another. I must have gotten up to pee once or twice because I didn’t pee the bed, but I don’t remember. I don’t think I’ve ever slept so long, not even as a slothful teenager.

Since I’ve woken up I’ve managed to take Jack for a walk and… nap. It seems that 19 hours was not quite enough sleep because every time I sit down I conk out. I’m pretty sure if I go to bed now I’ll sleep until morning so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Night, night.

    Sleep well, although I don’t think there is any doubt that you will.

    I was brought up calling that plant Cow Parsley and thought, somewhat sniffily, that Queen Anne’s Lace was a rather fancy name when I encountered it as I hadn’t at that point learnt that common plants have many names. Anti-monarchist that I am I stick with cow parsley ;-)

    Hope the sleep recovers your good spirits and hooray for successful injections!
    I like the name cow parsley, it’s just ‘wild carrot’ here.

    Sleep well! (Although I think you already may have done some more sleeping, but that’s one thing that doesn’t have to be enjoyed in moderation.)

    I don’t think I’ve seen a wild carrot in the wild. It seems that Queen Anne’s Lace can be Daucus carota (wild carrot, the wild ancestor of the root vegetable), Anthriscus sylvestris (cow parsley, a common weed here) or Ammi majus (bishop’s weed, from Egypt). All are related. Carrot is porkkana in Finnish, Anthriscus sylvestris is koiranputki (dog’s pipe, the name for many big Apiales species with hollow stems is something-putki in Finnish) and Ammi majus seems to be isosudenporkkana (big wolf’s carrot, iso is big and susi is wolf).
