Does Old English have enough vocabulary for writing a diary?

Yes, but you will need some word coining for modern references to actually come across as Old English. (If you’re going to be dropping in unassimilated modern words all the time, you might as well be writing modern English. You won’t have the look and feel of Old English.)

Strongly recommend you look at the great work being done in the Old English Wikipedia, and contribute there to get practice.
