I always thought a putter was a golf club (as indeed it is) but I also discovered it was a verb when Don used it the other day. He said "But I like getting things done, so I started the year puttering around the house."
Dictionary.com defines Putter: To waste (time) in idling: puttered away the hours in the garden.
It is obviously a variant of 'potter', another super word, and both are defined as "to work lightly; do random, unplanned work or activities or spend time idly."
