Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl

So as part of my 2010 resolution, I’ve taken up knitting. This past weekend, our friend Anna came over to show the Ganti girls how to knit. The results have bee rather hilarious as Momma Ganti is playing the role of Penelope by unraveling her knitting constantly while Sri’s hat has managed to turn into a Mobis strip. Despite these set backs, the Ganti women have found a new craft that they are looking forward to refining in 2010!

The above picture is a look at the scarf I knitted for Neel. I used a wonderful Alpaca to knit the scar and well, its super super warm! My goal is knit socks, don’t ask me why but I figure they’ll make awesome presents at some point!



House Hunting in Cambridge: The Journey Begins

Posted by sailaja on Jan 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

My friends, in our quest to become big people a huge mile stone is upon the Joshi’s-House Hunting. Yes, we’re now officially very married as we’ve already started arguing about where the baby’s room will be in our future home.

House hunting in the city is very different from house hunting in the ‘burbs. For one, we need parking. No one even questions parking in the ‘burbs. Next there is that all important, what way does this house face? According to India customs, a house that faces North or Northeast is ideal. However, in the world of city real estate, a home that faces south or southwest gets the most sun. Talk about issues.

As the house hunting continues into February, we’ll keep you all abreast of our latest house hunting woes and developments.



A Year in Review

2009. What a wonderful year it has been for us Joshi’s. As I look back, I can honestly say that we are the most blessed people on Earth and my own resolution from here on out, is the pay it forward. From Neel’s new gig as a Harvard Professor to my new path as an Anthropologist, we are really just beyond happy to ring in 2010.

As 2009 came to a close, we celebrated Thanksgiving up in Sunnyvale with detour trips to Yosemite and Los Angeles with my Bujireks. The trip was amazing and paved the way for a wonderful December as we celebrated Christmas in LA with Team Nobile.

2009 was also a year of engagements, which only means 2010 is the year of weddings. In 2010 we look forward to celebrating the weddings of; Amish and Akta, Sirisha and Naveen, Guillume and Mary, and the ever amazing Gautam and Neha (Nehtam). We are so excited that these couples will be joining us in Club Married!

2010 looks to be an amazing year as we celebrate love, life and all that in between. Wish you all the best for the new year!
