Dilly-dally, need to make a start!

Sunday again...why oh why does work always have to start again on Monday when you are just starting to get into the Sunday groove????
After some cold and rainy days, the weather was glorious yesterday, so I headed off to visit my darling daughter and then meet two dear friends about an hour or so from my home for lunch.
As always we had a lovely afternoon chatting, laughing and catching up on each others news.
With a view like this, who could NOT have a great time?
We then had a bit of a shop...I encouraged them to buy some really nice homewares!
Then back to DD's place to load up with breakables...they are moving back to Newcastle...very close to me (cheer)...so I am helping them to move some small stuff in preparation for the big move.
Today was the same as yours most likely...washing, tidying, a bit of a dust through, and then (hopefully) some creative time. Hand work seems to be my thing at present...I am pressing on with my pinwheels...
and working on my circle game borders too!
 But I have nothing machine-y on the go at present, so I then tend to wander aimlessly around thinking about what I could start....not very productive at all!
What to do, what to do?
I need some new cushions...there is a bag I would like to make...I have a couple of things I could prep ready to start...I just need to make a start really and stop dilly dallying!

Just pick one, roll the dice to see which one, then you will know which one to do first.

I am just like that, by the time I make up my mind what to work on the day is half over. I need to get better organized but never do. Hugs....

It's frustrating when you're not sure what to start on next.......something will come to you.

Not a bad venue for lunch! sounds like you had a fun day...I hear you with the Sunday lament...I always feel the weekend is a day short...you just get into it and it's done! your pinwheels are looking good..mine are done and waiting for the next blocks to arrive...might be the only time I am up to date with it though!

Loving those pinwheels oh and the view too.
Sounds like yesterday was wonderful.
Chores time is when I decide what to start next, then there's a good reason to get done quickly.
Enjoy your week.
