I Stalked A Homeless Woman

I’ll admit it. Sometimes I’m creepy. As in I’ll spot my friend driving from a mile away then I’ll text her with an exact description of her outfit. Or I’ll awkwardly come out of nowhere and will run into someone I know. Kind of like when I found Hannah on Coastal Highway at midnight. But today I took it to a whole new level.

Without success, I attempted to stalk a homeless woman. A homeless woman! Let me explain before you leave my blog and never return. Last Wednesday, I was pulling out of my neighborhood and I saw a woman standing next to my court. She had a few bags with her and seemed to be stopping to take a break from walking. I thought it was bizarre since I live in a secluded area, so I even considered asking her if she needed help. I thought her car might have broken down, but I didn’t think much of it and continued driving.

Then, the next day, I saw her again, but this time she was near the schools where the kids that I babysit attend camp. I initially thought it was coincidental, but weird at the same time. I then saw her again in the same area two hours later! She didn’t seem harmful, but I thought it would be wise to call security at the schools, just as a heads up.

After being away this past weekend, she hadn’t crossed my mind until I saw her yet again. This time, I spotted her as I was leaving my gym. I wouldn’t be so skeptical if I was continuously seeing her in the same location, but what’s so baffling is that my house is over 20 miles away from the schools, and even the gym is a far distance. I am almost positive that walking is her only form of transportation. I love to walk myself, but my goodness! There’s no way I’m walking all over town during a heat wave.

For the fifth time, I saw her this morning after I dropped the kids off at camp. Curiosity got the best of me, so I quickly parked my car, hopped out, and starting chasing her. I was planning on going for a run anyway, so I conveniently pretended that my main goal was to exercise. Unfortunately, after running (aka stalking) for over an hour, I couldn’t find her. The scenery was pretty, but I’m determined to figure out just where she is going and what she is doing.

I’m not really sure what I would have done had I found her, but I’m concerned for the safety of the children. Like I said, she doesn’t look like she is out to hurt anyone, but I’m a bit weary. Most of all, I’m just curious to know how she is walking these long distances in the scorching heat. I didn’t stalk the woman all morning; I stopped when it was time to babysit again. Winking smile

This afternoon, I was craving a smoothie, so when I spotted a can of pumpkin in my pantry, I decided to make a pumpkin pie protein shake. It was delicious, but I think I’ll add some sweetener to it next time. It also filled me up really quickly, so I could barely finish the whole thing.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk or Almond Breeze
  • 1 cup cubed ice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 xanthan gum

I wanted to rent a movie to watch tonight, but I was tired of driving, so I practically begged Ali to walk with me to Redbox. Somehow, I was able to convince Ali and her friend to join! Of course I picked the hottest part of the day to go, so a sweaty five miles later, we had a movie to watch.

To refuel, I made a turkey and provolone sandwich topped with bread and butter pickles and spicy honey mustard. Cold, crunchy grapes on the side were also really good! Deeelish.

I might go take a dip in the pool then I’m working on a great fashion post, so be sure to check back later!
