Good Bye, 365...

After a great running, I have decided to officially turn off Lisa365: Everyday New.

It was a great idea that just ran out of steam.

And, due to a friend's recent blog entry about blogs suddenly vanishing (it was not directed at me), I knew I had to bring closure to those people who visited here expecting to view new entries everyday.

I'm sorry.

You can find me at home - ...are you kidding me? or on my other Entrecard blog, dedicated to photography - Waterstone Photography.

Thanks everyone for your comments, encouragement, and readership! It was through this blog that I met SO many awesome people. Stay tuned for the next project...

Day #159

Today was my birthday barbecue... and I learned to BBQ all by myself! Yes, for the first time in my life I learned to turn on the propane tank and light the burners... I've always loved barbecues but have always been fearful of them (having worked at the manufacturing plant of Broil King, you hear all the stories!)
When it was time to cook for our friends, I lit it up and put the burgers and hot dogs on... and then a friend stepped up and offered to take over for me as I was running around and talking to everyone who was over. :-)

Day #158

my Elle Canada prize If you've been following my blog then you'll know I wrote in to Elle Canada.

Well, I found out not too long ago that my letter had been selected to be published, but what I didn't know was that it was selected as the Best letter! Today I received my prize: Calvin Klein's Euphoria set of body lotion, shower/bath wash and the bottled fragrance, valued at $150. Wow!! This was the biggest prize I've ever received!

Hilarious videos from Improv Everywhere! :-)
