    BTW, why do you use plural with каждый? It's the same as in English "every Wednesday", "every Sunday" etc. You just need singular here

    каждые среды
    каждые воскресенья
    I noticed that you made this mistake more than once. But in fact using "каждый" + noun is not that hard, it works the same way as in English.

    every Monday - каждый понедельник (sing., you don't say "every Mondays", do you? Ot may be in English you do, I'm not sure )
    every week - каждую неделю (sing.)

    every two days - каждые два дня (plural, "каждый" refers here to the "packs" of two different days)
    every few months - каждые несколько месяцев (plural, the same reason)

    Thanks for the corrections and the pointers on the use of каждый. Guess I got trapped into thinking about it as plural as it is a repeated occurrence. Forgot about it's similar usage in English.

    Thanks for the additional explanation. It is very helpful and just what I needed to get this каждый right.... hopefully.
    Somehow, either the books I've been reading does not include this or I've just plain missed it. (Or more likely that I've forgotten about it).
