Butler Calendar Command's Trigger, conditioned by "List X is not empty"

Hi, For a project items I would like to perform this logic 5 minutes before every midnight:

If the list "Done Today" is not empty, rename it to "Current Date", and create a new list "Done Today".

I have this command at the moment:

every day at 11:55 pm, rename list "Done Today" to "{date}", and create a new list named "Done Today" in position 3

Problem is that it fires also in days when nothing was done (completed). In such a day it creates an empty list. I would like to avoid from create empty lists.

It seems a trivial task but I can't see how to create the appropriate Butler rule.
Is this possible?
