I'm home, writing papers.


This is an important update. The umbrella tree that I repotted a month or so ago has sprouted five new leaves in quick succession. Just after I repotted it it looked a little unhealthy but it must be happy now.


I came across this recipe for rhubarb cake and it reminds me of something my mom always made, so I'm making it minus the salt and with cinnamon instead of the orange zest. My version also has whole wheat flour instead of white because at the moment that's all I have and fibre is my friend, and so are B vitamins.

It's in the oven right now and I can smell it. It will be consumed warm with large volumes of whipped cream, Habermas, Gadamer and Marx. Ah, papers.
