Mensagem: 
"My day is drawing to an end"/coming to an end -  is possible, only that it is very formal (and many would think you are bored or tired by saying that).

The day was drawing to an end anI had to get out of this mess and find a safe port.

=========================================================
The end of my day (of work/workday) is nearing, is close...could also be used.  Would be more natural than "drawing to an end" that could sound a bit stilted.
