The villager I rescued wants to trade me an iron shovel that has an efficiency of 5, and unbreaking. I was able to trade with other villagers to get the resources he wanted and now have my new shovel. This new shovel is great I am leveling a lot of the terrain around the village to make it easier to build the wall. I am also removing all the tall grass so we can see what is going on around the village.
I was able to level a lot of the ground and place part of the wall today. I used the night to place lights to keep the mobs at bay. I am tired after a hard day of work but managed to light up most of the area, and leveled most of the land around us.
Tomorrow I am going to try to complete the wall, and gather resources to move the gardens all to one area.
