From Danielle’s blog:
We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.
This week’s question:  What is your fall favorite? Share a fall recipe, activity, memory, or any other fall favorite! (Remember, next week will be hosted here!!!)

Years past, I would look forward to fall.  Seeing the beautiful scenery of leaves changing colors, the nippy chill in the air, start my fall cleaning and starting to cook in bulk what I call cold weather food.  
However, due to my physical limitations and responsibilities, I may not be able to accomplish all of that this year, but I am going to try to do what I can.  There is nothing more comforting than walking into a house, and smell the aromas coming from the kitchen.
I like to cook certain foods in bulk and freeze in portions so that if some nights I don’t feel like preparing, it is already done.  I will usually double my portions of chicken soup, meatballs and gravy (us Italians call it gravy, others call it sauce),  another gravy recipe that was passed down from my grandmother, home made apple sauce and even fresh vegetables.  
And just the other day I started to prepare for the fall.  I ordered my Yankee Candle Fall Scents to burn to make the season complete.
What about you?  What is your fall favorite?

This week’s question:  (link-up with your answer at Jen’s site): Share your favorite blogs, bookish or not, that you can’t go a single day without visiting.

Last week I announced that Saturday’s A Bit Of Me was taking a hiatus, but when I went to Danielle’s site to start my hopping and post my link, she had some great news.  Some bloggers had offered to host this meme on a rotating basis so A Bit Of Me Is back !!!!  Thank you to those kind bloggers in offering of their time!!!!!

hmmmm..favorite?  

Favorite?  I can’t do favorite!!!  That’s like asking which child is your favorite? …..well I guess that would depend on the kind of day it is lol.  OK…I’ll give it a try.  After booting up and checking my mail, the next stop is my blog, NING and Facebook and see what I missed while sleeping.
Then it’s back to my blog, to post my daily memes (I really do love my daily memes), visit the hosting blog and start hopping to blogs that participate.  I tend to visit different blogs throughout the day depending on reading something from their newsletter that I subscribe to, or if I haven’t visited in a while and I will admit I do have some favorites but my lips are zipped.

What about you?  What sites is a must for you to visit on a daily basis?

Good morning all!!  As you know, the eastern United States is preparing for a very unwelcome visitor, named Irene.  Some have already been affected and others, like my family, are preparing for this storm.  To those affected, please stay safe!!!  As far as us, we are in the direct path and have been told we could be without power for days due to the high winds and downed power lines.  So if you don’t see me online, you know why.  We are supposed to get the worse part sometime tomorrow but can get the outer ring rains starting later tonight.
On a better note, I think I have finally figured out the glitch in Sunday’s Shining Star.  So my question to you, since next week is labor day and many have end of summer cookouts, plans with family and friends, should I restart the event on September 11th or start it next week?  Again, though it will depend if I have access to my laptop.
Also today is the last day for A Bit Of Me and I do love my memes.  Does anyone know of any other memes for Saturdays that I haven’t come across yet? Suggestions will be appreciated.
Again, to all blogging buddies in the path of Irene, please stay safe, have your book, book lights, candles EReaders charged, I know I do.  There are priorities for a reader lol.

This week’s question: 

the Last Question for A Bit of Me(Me) at least for awhile: What’s been the best part of participating and/or do you have a favorite question you loved answering?Read more: http://www.theresabook.com/2011/08/a-bit-of-meme-its-beginning-to-look-a-lot-like/#ixzz1VZ8q2dPE

As you can see by today’s question, this will be the final week of A Bit Of Me.  And true to form, Danielle has asked what has been the best part.  I have teased her since participating in her weekly meme how she always asks to “name one” or “the favorite”, etc.   And every week, I never played by the rules and answered with more than one answer.  But today I will follow her rules.  
The best part: being a part of the Saturday A Bit Of Me Weekly Meme.
Danielle, you have been a fantastic host.  It amazed me at the variety of questions you asked week after week.  I enjoyed trying to find the images to go along with the questions then hopping around to see those who participated and seeing their answers and images.  I will miss these Saturday morning visits but I also understand how much time it takes to host.  So a BIG thank you for all of your hard work!!!!!!
