I got a Tello. Sounds like you "need" one tooI bought some of those bulk black fabric/neoprene work gloves and cut just the index fingerprint area out of them so I could use the tablet ... they're thin enough that the RC joysticks still work well.
They're good for about 20 minutes when the temperature is within 5-10 degrees of freezing. Not good at all for 8F ...

I have a few mini drones already, with various levels of sophistication. None have quite the same flying characteristics as the Spark, nor do they have FPV capability. It's the latter in which I'm most interested in gaining proficiency, along with being able to seamlessly switch my mental and muscle-memory orientation between 3PV and FPV.I got a Tello.

Great for indoor fun and practice. Prop guards make it super safe. It even lets you use a game controller for real joystick control.
and for in between flights

I have some of those cheaper mini drones tooThe Tello sounds like a great little drone but there are lots of less expensive options of mini drones that have very similar features and have their own controllers as well. I have several mini drones that I can fly indoors and a small RC buggy too. Stay warm inside and still have a lot of fun.
