Even though it's Independence Day the mall I work at was still open for business and I had to be there; on  Thursdays I open the Customer Service desk and work until mid-afternoon.  Since I didn't have plans until the evening (walking up to our city's park to watch fireworks) I didn't bother to ask off.

The mall wasn't very busy today; I directed people to stores and the bathrooms, and answered the phone and told callers what our hours were for the day. As the day dragged along with a lot of free time in between questions I decided to update my phone to reflect the patriotic nature of the day.  The phone (and case) is blue, so it provided a nice frame to this picture on my lock screen:

I also changed the phone's background from black to white, and changed my Live Tiles to red:

Yes, the Facebook tile stayed blue, but I think it makes
a nice contrast, don't you?

  1. Looks good to me Kathy. Happy 4th of July!

  2. I'm amazed your mall was open July 4th. Happy 4th!

    1. For the most part, only government agencies, small businesses, and offices were closed; most large stores were open (although many of them closed early)

  3. I hope you had a happy 4th, even though you had to work. I worked that holiday many times myself.

    I always love the contrast of the eagle against the American flag.
