Unable to change fill/stroke colors of boxes and text - Adobe Indesign Windows

I'm using InDesign CS for Windows and have had no problems since I began using it in October. Today I'm working on a brochure and when I create a box I can choose a color of the fill and stroke, but only the first time. After that I can choose any color I want but it won't update the box or text. The only way I've been able to change the color is by switching from CMYK to RGB and changing in RGB then switching back to CMYK. Very odd... is there something I turned on or off?...

    Perhaps you are selecting the fill and strok of the text in the frame. This is possible even if there is no text in the frame.
