Hearing zombies above and fearing sudden death by creeper, I ran out of my cave, the sword I had crafted over night in hand. I had used the iron that the cave held to craft a sword, as I don't want to get killed by some random mob, and a set of shears as I intend to build myself a bed as soon as possible - being outside at night is way to dangerous when you're on permadeath. I get out of my cave and manage to slay a zombie that had been camping out above my entrance. Then I went hunting.
Using the river for orientation, I hunt down cows for meat and leather, as I need an armor as soon as possible, and sheep to shear them for their wool. After also chopping down some more trees, I decide to get back to my island. There is work to do there. On the way I gather up some sand to smelt into glass. I cut away the remaining trees on my peninsula, hammer down a floor of wood and some foundation-walls from cobblestone that I had gotten from the cave last night. The house won't be done today but the foundation is standing now.
