A diary is a written record of daily events.

A dairy is a place that produces milk or milk products. Dairy is also used as an adjective to describe something commonly associated with milk or cows. Since very few cows will have daily events worthy of documentation, these two should not be confused.

Example: Because of her high cholesterol, she was asked to keep a diary of her daily dairy consumption.
