About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Education
Occupation Retired College Professor
Location Raleigh, NC, United States
Introduction I am a retired college professor (botanist) who likes to travel. Several years ago my husband and I were planning a trip to Italy and our children suggested we write a blog about our trip so they could keep up with our travels. That's when I set up a blog gaddingaboutwithgrandpat.blogspot.com I came to enjoy blogging and I continued after our trip.I noticed that many of my blogs involved food and cooking, so a friend suggested I write a blog about learning to cook. Learning to cook was one of my goals in retirement. That's how my blog botanistcooks.blogspot.com came to be. These days I seem to be cooking more and gadding about less. Blogging has become a hobby in retirement.
Interests Traveling, reading, cooking, movies, photography, grandchildren, sports, our home, music, family and friends, collecting NC pottery, buying and selling antiques
