I've time for today

A lady gave a five-minute introduction of this year's Summer Festival, at the end, she said" Well, that's all I've time for today." Does "I've time" refer to "I have time" here? Does that mean"Well, that's all time for me today."?



Thanks.

@jinmin1988,
Yes- I've is a contraction that means, 'I have' so she's saying, 'That's all I have time for today' .
But I don't think it means this: "Well, that's all time for me today."? (although I don't really understand what that means, so that why I've written that I don't THINK it means that- in other words, I don't know for sure, as I don't really understand that phrase myself).

@aidan,
What about reading: - That's all I've time for, today?

Common- but old- fashioned - colloquialism:

Well, that's all I've time for today."

Well, that's all I've spent for today.

Well, that's all I've talked for today.

Means: that's my limit; that's all I have for that.

@jinmin1988,
Well, that's all I've time for today. = Well, that's all I've got time for today.
