You need to enter the site description in metadata under global configuration

If you login as admin to the control panel under site on the top menu you will see global configuration, choose it from the menu. There is a box for metadata - this is where your site description and key words for the site are entered. If you do not have access to global configuration contact the developer who built your site and have them add the metadata.

I have created a google account, and submitted my website url
I have downloaded the XML extension for Joomla and created a sitemap and submitted the sitemap url to Google.

I will let you know if that works for me!

Well it worked for me. The XML was pretty easy to use. Submitted sitemap. Took about a week after that. I did post a question on the Google webmasters forum. ( thought that might help speed up the googlebot thing too). About a week later it is now showing.
