After the wonderfully brisk, cooler temperatures last week, somehow it has gone back into the mid-80s in Texas. We have literally skipped right over winter and headed straight into spring.  I don't mind the warm weather but there's something just wrong about sweating on an outdoor patio during breakfast in December.

The town home that we're touring today is stuck in eternal spring, much like our weather here.  Can you really be down in the dumps with the seafoam green kitchen, pale blue master bedroom and daisy yellow master bath?    I can't help but love all the built-in nooks around the house too - the breakfast booth in the kitchen, window seats in the living room and even a little bench area in the bathroom.  So maybe spring is here again.  At least the warmer weather makes Christmas shopping a little more pleasant.
