Happiness is a sleeping bird

Happiness is a sleeping birdFortunately Zip is here to remind me that nothing is worth getting too cranked about.

It's always a good time to nap. He lets me know this by grinding his beak, making a little whispery rasp that says all is well in his little birdy world. Naps are interrupted to snack, to groom feathers, to exercise one's lungs and wings, to bathe, etc.

At bedtime it is time to be covered up. It is time to chirp loudly until one's human obeys quickly and covers the wire cage home with the nice, dark, opaque blanket cover. Then the whispery rasp and sleep can begin again.
