My luck held today. Early this morning, while the rain drummed on the windows, my garden-help guy called and rescheduled for tomorrow when the prediction contains much less wet. Usually his schedule doesn't allow us last-minute reschedules.
First, I went back to bed and caught up on my sleep and on cat-snuggling.
Then I spent part of the day reorganizing a couple of cupboards in the room where I store my knitting tools, files, and yarn.
In the last week I received a couple of largish orders of now-discontinued Jaeger yarn. I needed cupboard space to store it. We still have some unused cupboards elsewhere in our place, even after a year in residence here, so I could shift a shelf full of stuff out of another cupboard in this room and commit all of this one to knitting.
Note a few empty and unfilled storage boxes in my after photos and space for another box. I have a bit more Jaeger yarn I want to order while I can still get it, so some of that will get filled in the near future.
Also note that I have a long window seat with a row of yarn-filled drawers in addition to what you see here.
Yet more yarn fills half a dozen deeper boxes in a space over the closet of a cathedral-ceilinged guest room in our Bainbridge Island place. I need to buy a slightly taller ladder to help manage that stash, but I organized it into labeled boxes just a couple years ago -- not that long in knitting stash history.
Not everything is done. The lower two file boxes contain piles of papers and stacks of folders waiting organization. My regular-life paperwork overflows a file drawer likewise awaiting sorting into folders. Another two or three or more hours of work remain.
I also did a bit of regular closet and shoe organization. I have a couple of other areas of collecting compulsion besides yarn.
Anyway, tonight I feel virtuous despite accomplishing no actual knitting today.
